Just thought it would be cool to share this video of Sgt. Larry Reid. He's a photographer for the Air Force and he has some cool work.



The accompanying article.

It's also cool that he shoots with Nikon too. Looks like he has a D810 already.

Seems like a pretty awesome job, and I'd imagine it'd be really difficult to get good shots with those crazy G forces.

Edit- looks like a D610- wonder if that was a personal procurement or if the government lets him get the latest gear. :D

    Haven't looked at the link, but I used to do aerial photography (mapping). Was much fun

    Cheers,

    I doubt he takes pictures at high G as it would affect the mechanics of the camera and I am surprised he's not mirrorless for that job.

    Great share!
