Dustin was born into aviation. His father was a 36 year captain at American Airlines, all the while owning private aircraft. Dustin learned from his father. He carried that knowledge with him into his film and photography career. Yes, there are other professional photographers out there, but Dustin has a leg up. He knows the industry and the aircraft.

I realize that for my clients and their clients, time is money. When a broker brings me in to photograph and film an aircraft...AND...they use my marketing properly, the average days on market is 34 days. When I am not brought in or they use someone else, the average days on market is over 320 days.

  • Whiteout in Florida

    A stunning aircraft both inside and out, the L500 makes a statement wherever is goes. I met up with this beauty at Opa Locka Executive Airport, just north of Miami, Florida. As always, the weather in southern Florida can change on a dime. The few days leading up to the shoot via weather.com were looking promising with only scattered clouds. I landed in Ft. Lauderdale on Southwest Airlines, late, the night before the shoot and it was raining hard. I was hoping the rain would subside by the following morning. After dropping my gear off at my room, I made my way to my favorite place in Ft. Lauderdale to go, Waxy O'Connors. It's a great Irish Pub with good food and atmosphere. Ft. Lauderdale was packed with cruise ship people and getting at table, even at 10p, was proving to be difficult. After some Irish fare and a Magners Cider, I called it a night. The following morning, I woke up to the familiar tapping on my window...the rain was still going. Making my way to the airport, I saw breaks in the clouds every so often, so I held out hope. I navigated my way through the downpour to Orion Jet Center at Opa Locka Executive. Orion's extremely helpful staff is always eager to help me out...which is not always the case. Their ramp was full of big iron and I could see this was going to be an all day project. After speaking with the line guys, I estimated staging eta was about 2 hours....although, as always, the line guys bent over backwards for me and got the aircraft staged in about an hour. To be honest, I was hoping for the 2 hours in the event that the storm would blow by in that time. I had the guys bring me a GPU so that I could photograph and film the interior first...once again, hoping the time would bring better weather. After getting inside this L500, I realized, this thing is brand new. The gorgeous interior of the Embraer is highlighted by their craftsmanship. The collaboration with BMW on the design of the interior is evident. This aircraft is, what I call, flying in style... without the high annual costs of similar aircraft. Entering the flight deck is every pilots dream. The technology in this aircraft is second to none. For Apple enthusiasts, it is like flying an iPad. The Garmin G3000 Prodigy Touch System is ergonomically set up to have everything you need at your fingertips, literally. And, the first thing you notice upon entering the cockpit, is the absence of a yoke. The joystick controls leaves the pilots a lot of room and helps in the comfort. After about 2 hours on the interior and flight deck, I made my way outside where the rain was still pouring from the skies...but it's what I love about my work, it's never the same. Filming an object that is white, against a white sky...and making it standout... is one of the most complicated tasks as a photographer. However, the line of Embraer aircraft is like shooting a gorgeous model...they look good anywhere. I, truly, enjoyed filming this aircraft.

  • Snowy CJ in Aurora

    It's the middle of winter and when I get a call to be in Denver for a shoot, the hair on the back of my neck immediately stands up. I know that weather in the Rockies can be unforgiving and brutal. I, quickly, looked at the weather and contacted the client. I told him that we have a brief window of opportunity to film if the aircraft and pilot were going to be available. My plan was to hit Denver right before the storm, film this CJ4 and then head right back to DIA to catch a flight to Kansas City for another shoot. I got to SLC with plenty of time to spare. The, never popular, bus was pulling up at the economy lot and I tried to climb aboard. To be honest, I HATE the new system Salt Lake International has put in place for parking. I used to be able to park and walk down car rental row right into the airport. Well, they have eliminated that all together. Now, I have to ride the sardine express. It really starts a trip off with a bad taste in your mouth. Anyhow, I made my way to the line at Southwest and got right in for my boarding pass and checked bags. No delays on my outbound flight and into DIA. Now, DIA has it's challenges. It takes quite a while to get your bags and the rental car agency is quite a ways away from the terminal. Anyhow, I landed in Denver only to find the storm hit early. A fresh 8 inches of snow lay in wait for me. Got my bags, my car and I was on the way to Centennial. The 20+ mile drive was littered with vehicles who's drivers lost control and ended up in the ditch. I found it humorous in a state that sees many snow storms every year. Upon arriving at Centennial, it seemed VERY quiet. And then it dawned on me....Superbowl weekend. All the big iron was in SF. I had a whole tarmac to myself....oh joyous day. The downside....snow covered tarmac, socked in skies and a white aircraft...hmmmmmm, how does one make this aircraft stand out? Kind of like finding a cotton ball in a field of snow. After quite a while of trial and error, I think it came out quite well. This Gorgeous CJ4 was definitely a ramp queen and showed off well, inside and out.

  • Scottsdale Snub

    Every once in a while I get to an airport that has some funky rules. This is one of those times. I was on a tight schedule and just landed in PHX. I got my bags and my rental car fairly quickly. I made the 30 minute trek to the Scottsdale airport, which was packed with heavy iron for the NCAA College Championship Game. I had forgotten it was that weekend. My mind raced to figure out how we were going to stage the aircraft as the tarmac looked like the Brooklyn Bridge on a Friday afternoon. I went in to the FBO and spoke with one of the girls. I told her I was there to film tail number N510LM. She gave me that look my dog does when she's trying to figure out what I'm saying....head slightly cocked with a dazed look. She then went into a back office and told someone I was there and asked if they heard about me coming. A short conversation ensued and then she pulled out of the doorway, looked at me and said, "do you have a permit"? "Permit"?, I said. She then explained I needed a filming permit from the city which I could apply for and would take up to one month to approve. I was dumbfounded to say the least. I told her that I just flew in from SLC and I needed to film the aircraft now...I didn't have a month. After several phone calls they tracked down the person at the city who approves the permits and he said he would expedite it if I could fill out the paperwork and get it over to him. The clock was ticking as I watched the sun getting closer to the west. I got the paperwork and began filling it out. I asked the girl from the FBO, "do you guys lease your property here?". Yes, she said. I then began to explain to her that it was up to them, not the City, whether I can film the aircraft on their tarmac. She didn't believe me and had me finish the paperwork. We sent it to the city "worker" and waited. 2 hours passed and I just knew that I was going home without filming the plane. Finally, the girl called over to the city and found the man in charge. Turns out I need a insurance certificate of 5 million dollars in the name of the Scottsdale City before I can film. Obviously, I don't carry around a certificate with Scottsdale assigned to it. That became a whole new issue. I had the girl put him on hold and explained, at this point I have 1.5 hours at the most to film this aircraft and it normally takes 3. I asked her to tell him, "since we are leasee of this property, can we take the responsibility on him filming on our tarmac". Wouldn't you know it....he told her "yes, that's fine". After she got off the phone, I said, "lesson learned".

  • Stuffed

    This story...at the time...was a bafflement of immense proportions. Normally, my clients send me an email that is attached to a group and one of those people are usually the owner of the aircraft I am to film. In this case, I had never met the owner before and was not up to speed on his brand of, what they tell me is, his humor. I "replied all" and told his that is was nice to meet him and that I needed a few things before I can get his aircraft filmed. One of those things was the airport and location on the airport of his aircraft. After sending the email out, I received a quick response. Happily, I opened it up. I had to read the email several times to completely take in the contents. It simply said, "If you don't know where my airplane is, we will need to find a photographer who does." I was completely thrown back, and quite frankly, didn't know how to respond. Before I could come up with, what I thought, was a well written response, the broker sent me an email and told me to not take it to heart as his humor overlaps his frankness. So, we got passed that hurdle. Normally, I have, on average, a 3 email conversation with the client or pilot before I film. In this case, I was berated for about 19 emails. Once I was at the field, I thought, "this will be the easy part". NOT EVEN CLOSE I found his hangar and went in to meet the owner. His assistant greeted me...she was very nice. She went into his office and told him I was there. He had someone in there with him. I overheard the guest, "well I better let you go". The owner replied, "no, he can wait a while". So, I sat there for more than an hour, waiting. FUN He finally came out and introduced himself to me and took me out to his aircraft. He told me that is would be the nicest aircraft I had ever filmed and that he just had it detailed, inside and out. I did my usual walk around to see if there was any damage. It did look very nice and I told him so. I then asked if I could look inside. I leaned through the door and immediately saw custom seats that were adorned with leather and suede. It was VERY nice. I peeked around the edge of the front seats to look in the back and was thrown back by what I saw. I had never seen so many beanie babies and stuffed animals in my life. It to care as to what I was about to say to the owner. He, caught me off guard and spoke first, "looks great, right". "Yes", I said, "however, can we possibly remove the stuffed animals for the interior portion?". His response was quick and curt, "absolutely not...it adds character". As, I do not argue with owners, I began my process...it went somewhat smoothly. After getting back to my studio and finishing the film and photos for the marketing package, I uploaded them and sent the broker a note. I received a response swiftly from my client, "this is a joke, right?". I told him the story and said that it was not a joke. He then asked if I could "photoshop" them out. Easier said than done. Each photo took over and hour to touch up and remove the stuffed animals. I truly hope I never have to do that again.
