[BTSV] Tyler Stableford’s Incredible Photoessay On The Modern Fighter Pilot
I know that we’ve experienced a pretty big spate of aviation-related posts over the past few weeks. Anyone else getting sick of them? No? Good. Me neither. Here’s another one that is just too cool, and makes me way too jealous.
Tyler Stableford is an Aspen-based action and adventure photographer who has won countless awards for his work, has been named one of Canon’s ‘Explorers of Light’ and one of the seven best action photographers in the world by Men’s Journal. In this project, Tyler strove to make a connection with the pilots and dig a little bit deeper to find out the effects that their career choice has had on their lives. Rather than just taking pictures, he wanted to make a visual statement and be able to have each picture share an emotion with the viewer. I’d say that he was wildly successful. While I wish that there was a little bit more tech-talk and how-to included, it’s still a rare glimpse into the workings of a well-established photographer making killer images.
