The Plane! the Plane! 2015 Sea and Sky Spectacular

Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography

Little known fact: when I was a child, I really, really, really wanted to be a pilot – I dreamed of flying fighters for the Air Force and even began the lengthy process of applying for the academy.  If it weren’t for my sudden need of glasses, who knows where I would be today.  Yet I was undeterred and headed to college with every intent of becoming a pilot and flying commercially.  However, after a year of flight training, I realized that while I love flying, the appeal of commercial aviation as a career began to wane, and… so here I am today, a professional photographer, writing this post for your enjoyment (or derision if you prefer).

But enough about me.  Let’s talk about this weekend’s Sea and Sky Spectacular at Jacksonville Beach.  Sunday afternoon, after church, we headed out to see the air show – though the weather was less than ideal and threatened rain, the show area managed to stay precipitation-free the entire time.   The show itself was filled with a wonderful variety of performers, from solo acts and formation groups, to historic flights from a couple of P-51 Mustangs and an F4U Corsair, to Fat Albert and the Blue Angels.  Because of all the moisture in the air, the planes were throwing vapor trails left and right, which made for some pretty cool opportunities, like the one above.

Flying High with Audi at the NAS JAX Air Show – Part 3 [The Panoramas]

Here’s our third and final installment from the air show – our Panoramas.

One of the unique things we provide at the majority of our shoots are ultra-high resolution panoramas.  This is a fun and unique way to capture all the activity in a wide area while maintaining lots of crisp quality, even at very large sizes.  Enjoy!

Flying High with Audi at the NAS JAX Air Show – Part 2 [The Planes]

Here’s Part 2 from this weekend’s Air Show. For those of you who missed the first post, we had the opportunity to shoot this year’s show on behalf of the title sponsor, Jack Hanania Automotive Group.

Aviation goes way back in my family.  My grandfather flew a P-51 during WWII and so the P-51 holds a special place in my heart (right next to my TR-6 if you were wondering).  The two P-51s above are flown by The Horsemen – the world’s only P-51 flight team.  It’s always a thrill to hear those mighty 16 cylinder engines come to life.  It’s a sound not easily forgotten!

For those of you who follow the blog, you already know I am a bit of a car nut, but you may not know that it was actually my love of aviation that brought me down to Florida.  I originally came down to Jacksonville University as a flight student.  Though I changed majors, my love for flying has never diminished.  So, having the opportunity to walk among such beautiful and storied aircraft, not to mention watch them fly, is quite a treat.

Above is a wonderfully restored example of the trainer variant of the Stearman model 75.   The first aircraft most WWII veterans flew, this plane taught countless thousands all the basics of military flying.  This particular Stearman is flown by John Mohr [of Mohr Barnstorming] – who put on a thrilling barnstormer-style display – flying just feet off the ground in a variety of unconventional attitudes.  It was all the more impressive this weekend because of the crazy crosswinds.  He’s truly a talented pilot!

Flying High with Audi at the NAS JAX Air Show – Part 1 [The Sponsor]

This weekend, we had the wonderful opportunity to photograph the NAS Jax Air Show on behalf of the title sponsor, Jack Hanania Automotive Group.  To shamelessly parody a cherished Christmas carol, though the weather outside was frightful, the stunts [and occasion warm jet wash] were quite delightful.  As you will see in a few photos below, we employed our ND filter for several unique time exposures of the crowd.  The one below is my favorite:

Jack Hanania Automotive Group has four dealerships in town, specializing in Audi, Acura, Hyundai, Mitsubishi and Volkswagen sales.  We had a great time getting to know some of their staff at the event, as they showed those daring souls who braved the cold, some of the great new cars from Audi, VW and Acura.    We hope you enjoy the photos!
