I work on aircraft and have always enjoyed photography (amateur/hobby).
I take pictures of airplanes all the time and lately have started to think that it would be good to combine the two as a side job type thing so, I am looking for some advice on how to bring this to reality.
My first question is, are there any photographers here who already do this?
How did you start? There is an FBO that handles corporate jets on a daily basis that I could probably start with in contacting owners who are thinking of selling.
If I were photographing aircraft that will be listed for sale, obviously I will need both interior and exterior shots so, the question I have is what lens would be recommended for this? I currently use a Canon 60D and will be purchasing a Canon 5D Mk IV soon so, I do know that the EFS lens is taboo on the 5D so the lens will need to be an EF so I can use it on both bodies. I do have a selection of lenses already but am curious as to suggestions that could possibly be used for both interior and exterior.
I do have the ability to "practice" by photographing the aircraft I work on.
I have bought books on this matter but it turns out that they are all just collections of aircraft in flight or pictures of random aircraft on the ramp which does me no good at all. I've only been able to find one website that talks about photographing interiors of aircraft but it only talks about set up as in how to dress up the seats and tables, nothing about lighting, lenses, exposure or anything that would actually help me with what I want to know.
I appreciate any input you may have and any stories you are willing to tell. Thank you
