I'm a native of New Jersey and have been around aviation all of my life. I grew up in the back seat of my father's Fairchild F-24R on the weekends as we took flights all over northern New Jersey. After obtaining my Private Pilot's License in 1994 and renting aircraft for a few years thereafter, my father and I purchased a 1964 Cessna Skyhawk after he sold his share of the Fairchild to fly with me. For over twenty years, Dad and I flew all over the northeastern United States with me as pilot-in-command and aerial photographer. I feel that some rather interesting and memorable photographs were shot during this time and is the reason for creating these aerial photo books.
