One of the things that we do when not shooting commercial photography is take images of all kinds of aircraft, both fast and slow….
I went to the Waterloo Airshow, June 1st, in Waterloo, Ontario and had lots of great opportunities to capture fabulous aircraft images up close. The airshow has a wide range of military, historic and commercial of aircraft on static display and offers many vantage points to shoot from.
The Waterloo Airshow offers a broad range of performers, including the Canadian Snowbirds!
An added attraction is that the taxiways for the landing strips are a stones throw away from the spectator area, offering great chances to capture close in aircraft images.
Even though we got rained on, the show is one I will return to in the future.
This is the one of the best vantage point shots, CF-18, painted in the 2013 colour scheme is an example of how close you can pull an image in …
Update 2015: Unfortunately, the Waterloo Airshow has been cancelled according to their twitter account. This is really too bad as this show had the best access around for taking images of the CF-18! We will miss it!
