If you have ever had a window seat for a cross-country flight, you know the magical transformation that occurs when you ascend high above the houses, roads, and natural elements of the landscape. Photographing from the air offers a remarkable vantage point for understanding and depicting the world below us, and our place within it.

In this two-and-a-half-day intensive, Alex teaches you the fundamentals of photographing from a small airplane, enabling you to take control of the experience and make fantastic images that would be impossible from the ground—or even from a commercial flight.

Topics covered include locating and hiring a pilot; research, preparation, and flight safety; appropriate equipment and technical tips; photographing as you move through four dimensions; and all of the aesthetic choices that arise while photographing from the air. Each student has the opportunity to fly over the Santa Fe area, in beautiful morning light and again in the glow of late afternoon, and to make images that are critiqued with the class and then printed.

Our time together is intense and high-energy, and you leave with the knowledge and skills necessary to begin or continue your own aerial photography projects.
