Hi All,

 

My name is Harry I just recently moved to Columbus from Tucson AZ where I lived for just over 3 years I am origianlly from Scotland but lived most of my life in Leeds just 2 miles from the local airport, I have been photographing and logging aircraft numbers for over 20 years, I have an SBS box which is very useful.

My largest airport is Port Columbus, but not had time to venture down there yet just managed a few trips along to the local airfield Ohio State University which is only 3 miles from my house.

So I am new looking to find any good spots for photography around CMH as I prefer landing or departing shots and looking forward to meeting some local photographers. Some picture are on flickr.

Welcome to winter, Ohio, Opshots, etc.

Hi Massey

 

Thanks for the welcome it sure is cold but I was used to that in the UK, I shoot with canon I have a EOS40D i use for most of my aviation photography and I use a EOS 1 mk3 rarely because its mainly for my wedding and portrait work, I shot the thunderbird pictures using a sigma 100-300 f4 with 1.4 converter on, I got a few shots I took the other day at OSU will post later once I have got my PC I use to process images up and running.

 

Cheers

 

Harry

Welcome! Best place to spot at Port Columbus (that I know of) is on level 5 of the parking garage in the short term area, as they've removed the old "observation area" due to the new 28L/10R. Hope to see you out there sometime!

Thanks, Harry.  Maybe Santa will bring me a telephoto lens - I've been pretty good.
