I must apologise for the distinct lack of updates on the blog here. It’s been a busy time at home with one thing and another. However, I have managed to get out and about a bit to places like Crufts although I’m still trying to get an image in a magazine again – very frustrating when a publisher says they want to use an image and at the last minute change their mind. Usually when the word ‘money’ is mentioned. Hey ho. I have, however, had an image published in a variety of magazines courtesy of Happy Design Studio and Didier Wolff. He designed and painted several aircraft of the Belgian Air Force last year as well as commercial jets. He asked for one of my low-level images last Christmas which has now spread to magazines in the UAE, of all places!!
Other than photography though, some of you may have noticed I’ve been embracing the airwaves with my podcast/radio show. I’ve had great feedback from some of you and I’m really pleased you’re enjoying it. More on that to come…..so stay tuned!
I’ve been lucky enough to have a flight in an RAF Chinook as part of my involvement with UK Airshow Review. This was part of the RAF Cosford Airshow 2018 press launch that I attended with fellow staffer Tom Jones. It was great to have an insight in to the planning and preparation for what I believe will be show of the year. Yes, RIAT is bigger and better but purely for what Cosford are doing with the resources they have, it really will be a most unique show and one I believe we haven’t seen for many, many years and will unlikely to see for some time. Maybe the next time will be the RAF 150th anniversary!!!
If you want to have a look at my preview of the show, click here to visit the UKAR site and have a read; it was great to interview so many people including a very enthusiastic Chinook Display Team crew.
In the meantime, I’m busy with dog shows and air shows. We’ve just had a magnificent start to the 2018 season with a cracking display at Shuttleworth and I’m looking forward to many more shows there this year.
I shall sign off for now as the kettle needs filling, but it’d be great to hear from you!
