Moose Peterson's Guide to Aerial Photography


In this B&H Event Space video, join wildlife and nature photography guru Moose Peterson in a presentation about his second photo passion: Aerial photography. Peterson has built up a body of work from visiting air shows, sitting in the co-pilot’s seat and hanging out in hangars. Over the course of this video, you’ll be treated to Peterson’s best work in this genre, all while absorbing his tips, tricks, and techniques for photographing static, ground-to-air and air-to-air aircraft. After watching, you’ll be inspired to get started or build on your own collection of aerial photographs, with a mind to publishing your work in the specialized market of aviation magazines.


Moose has built quite a reputation over the years with his inflated ego and mediocre wildlife imagery. Now's trying to tout himself as some sort of guru in this speciality? Quite a stretch with serious consequences. 

Great tips. The video seemed more for WWW II aircraft and before. I got hooked on air show photography going to an air show that featured the Air Force Thunderbirds. The air show did feature vintage aircraft and I got photos with blurred props.

I did check off a 30 year old bucket list item on July 8, 2011.

The US Navy Blue Angels are better than the Thunderchickens, Ralph. :)
