With so many great photographer's to choose from, the challenging part is deciding which ones to showcase. For 2016 I've highlight the works of Sarah Parker, Daniel Flanagan, Mike Profit, and Nathan Bowtell. See below for more outstanding photographs from their collections:

Mike's work goes beyond the norm, it's very creative, edgy, almost like graphic illustration. He has an extensive portfolio of black and white photographs that could fill an entire calendar with each unique image. Andrew Swart submitted Mike's photography for consideration, I chose two that are representative of his photographic talent. I may have to showcase his other works in a future calendar but for now, enjoy a few of his other photographs I thought were outstanding because of their perspectives.
2019 was a special year for the T-28s that couldn't be missed without a memorable calendar to mark it's 70th anniversary.
Daniel is an up and coming photographer who is making an impression at EAA AirVenture with his enthusiasm and great eye for that perfect shot of airplanes in flight. His appreciation for the T-28 has endeared him to the Trojan Horsemen where he catches a backseat ride whenever he can. All of his photographs are great so instead of deciding on just one I chose three. On this page are some other fine examples of his work. Click on the large photograph to his website where you'll see his professional photography is aimed at weddings.
Sarah's passion is aviation photography. If there's an airshow in Southern Florida more than likely Sarah will make time to be there to capture the action with her Canon camera. Click on the large photograph for a link to her Flickr portfolio. Click on the smaller thumbnails to enlarge the images. Initially I chose the first thumbnail photograph because the blue sky in the background was so rich and vivid but after careful consideration I chose to use the one with the Florida islands as the backdrop for a more visual appeal and because the aircraft cowling had better lighting, although the larger photo above sure was a strong contender. I think we'll be seeing more of Sarah's T-28 photographs in the future.
