Photography, Photography

Branching Out: Photography

One of the things that I’ve learned about my aviation/journalism journey is that it’s not linear. I’ve loved learning how to write, how to captivate an audience, and how to get my thoughts down on “paper” (typing is the twenty-first century paper right?). Now my journey is taking me down a branch I never thought I’d explore. Photography!

I purchased a camera a few months ago to capture photos to go along with my articles. I also enjoyed snapping pictures of all the planes that take off and land at DFW constantly!

Now I’ve decided to also learn more about my camera and what it can do. I’m going to be posting different photos I take both on assignment and in my free time. I’ve also decided to start booking professional photography jobs – both aviation and otherwise. So if you’re in the need of a photographer in the DFW area, feel free to reach out to me!

Mathematicians are now Air Safety Investigators

Apparently my degree in aviation has no weight anymore – now mathematicians can tell us definitively what happens to our missing planes.

I love it!

Thank You, Lieutenant Penney

When I attended the WAI Conference in March, one of my favorite speakers was Lieutenant Heather “Lucky” Penney’s two keynote speeches on empowering women in the aviation industry and her experience on 9/11. Many people do not know that a squadron in Washington D.C. – Penney’s Squadron were sent to take down United Airlines Flight 93 – hijacked with terrorists – with no active missiles on board their F-16’s. Penney was essentially on a kamikaze mission and spoke about her willingness to not return home to her family that night because of her commitment to serving our country.

Air & Space Magazine had sent me to the Conference to cover Penney’s speeches and another story that may be published in the future. It was the most moving story I have done thus far. There were many people in the room with tears in their eyes as she told her story – just one of million’s of stories from that Tuesday morning. It was a very touching story and one that I hope everyone gets to hear in full one day. My article touches on the very basics of her speech and what she did that morning – what she was willing to sacrifice. I hope that you’ll take the time to read this story and understand and appreciate what Penney was willing to do that day.
