Founded in 2009, Arizona Aviation Photographers (AzAP) is a group composed of Arizona-based photographers with a shared interest in aviation. Many members are veterans of the armed forces, others work in the aerospace field, some work as full-time professional photographers, some are pilots, and others are aviation enthusiasts with a passion for photography. AzAP's mission is to provide a means for Arizona-based photographers to record and preserve the southwest’s rich aviation heritage, both current and historical; to establish and maintain a forum for sharing and promoting each photographer’s unique vision and perspective on aviation-related subjects; to provide a mechanism to encourage and assist in further development and self-improvement as photographers; and to serve as an aviation-media resource for news media, museums, military, and the aerospace industry.
