Attention, EAA Members! Do you want to see one of your photos in EAA Sport Aviation magazine?!?!
Then just post it here. And make sure we like it better than all the other ones ...
As always, here's how it works:
- First, you’ll take a great photo, one that evokes the spirit of aviation. Feel free to include a caption or any other notes about the setting, subject matter, etc. The "spirit of aviation" is a broad definition - show us pictures OF aircraft, pictures taken FROM aircraft, people thinking ABOUT aircraft ... well, as long as it's obvious ... anyway, you get the idea.
- Then, you’ll reply to this thread and embed the picture in your post. (We prefer it if you include just one picture per post.) Note: to embed a picture, click the camera button on the toolbar to find and upload the file .... Please use this method to make the picture immediately visible as opposed to simply attaching the file.
- As our deadline approaches, the photo submissions will be reviewed by the editorial team (and me), meeting in a secure and undisclosed location, and we will choose a winner to be published in the magazine (with full and appropriate credit, naturally.)
- We’ll contact the photographer directly to arrange for their submission of a print-quality version of the winning photo (see below.) We’ll also provide the basic legalese at that point to ensure that we have the rights to publish the photo.
There are a few things to point out:
- The photo contest is open to all members of EAA.
- Note that, above, we said you’ll take the photo – submissions must be made by the original photographer.
- While we will be choosing the winners ourselves, we are, in fact, human beings, and certainly wouldn't’t ignore a picture if it had an unusually high “thumbs-up” count or a lot of positive comments here in the forum.
- Photos must be posted here to be considered – email submissions will not be accepted.
- In addition, the pictures you post here will be automatically resized for web viewing, which means they won’t be of a high-enough resolution for print. So, in order for your picture to be considered for publication, you must be able to provide a high resolution print-ready version on request.
- This means that the original should ideally be 8 Megapixels (~3264 x 2448) or higher.
Enter as many pictures as you like – the more the merrier! (Though, again, we prefer you post each picture separately.)
The deadline for submissions to the August, 2011 issue is
June 15th, 2011.

Vans RV8 f Owned by Dr. Chuck Wallace rom a trip that I took to Big Bend State Park in Texas a few months Ago. Photo was taken with a Canon Rebel T2i with a 55mm-85mm Lens. This is an HDR photo.
I am also building an RV7 so my interest in the Vans RV line of aircraft is incredible. They are a beautiful bird to photograph. I am also the Production Manager for Sky-Tec Starters and always have camera on hand to capture all the different aircraft that visit us here on the Granbury, Tx Airport.

I've always wanted an "aerial refueling pose" photo of my Hummelbird (NATO code name "Bogey Hunter"). It was one of those things that rattled around in my head for a very long time but I figured I would never be able to get the shot. It was just too complicated and too challenging. But when I renewed an old friendship with my buddy Kim Pederson the equation changed. I told him about my fantasy to get this photo. He was intrigued and became the missing piece that made the photo possible. With a remotely operated camera temporarilly mounted on his Beechcraft Sierra, some good weather, and some rather intense flying teamwork we got that photo!
The aircraft is shown flying 3,000' above the Cosumnes River (the last un-dammed river on the western slope of the Sierras) approximately five miles east of Rancho Murieta airport (RIU) near Sacramento California, home of EAA Chapter 1476.

I shoot this photo during a nice afternoon at my favourite grassfield in Kopaida, Central Greece.
The moment that the instructor is teaching a young boy how to fly a RC/model is magic. Also a magic hour with great lighting.
