Aviation Photographer – Richard Cooke Ep 3


BTS of aviation photographer Richard Cooke’s amazing Red Arrows shots!

“The Red Arrows g test my Nikon camera and I take the first ever wide angle head on shots of aircraft

Inside the aircraft my camera was a black bodied Nikon F2 Photomic with Nikkor 24mm and 35mm lenses, both with polarising filters.

On the outside of the aircraft the camera was a Nikkormat EL with an autowind, a 24mm Nikkor lens and a polarising filter.

In both cases the film was Kodachrome 64.

It was shot for the Telegraph Colour Magazine in July 1977”

Hi everyone, I am a freelance commercial photographer and specialize in actions sports/lifestyle imagery. For me it’s all about putting my vision in front of the lens to get unique photos. What makes a photo unique for me is not only the photo itself, but also the way I capture it. This kind of mentality has gotten me dangerously close to the action and into some amazing situations. I have a great passion for action sports, and photography helps me stay close to the action and involved in the industry. Photography is not only something that I do, it’s my lifestyle.
