Just last week the Bombay Beach Biennale 2018 was a great success with art installations and ballet and opera and fun. Sadly I missed it with flying duties at the Palm Springs Air Museum. However I have been doing my own art installations at Bombay Beach and around the Salton Sea for a number of years.
Bombay Beach boating fashion with model Xtine. Eco-friendly, everything we packed in we packed out. And we walked away with our Art created with a camera. The Art created by Xtine, myself, a Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting.
Many installations of the Bombay Beach Biennale 2018, such as the the Opera House, The Hermitage Museum, Drive-In Theater, The Institute, Angler Grove, and Nine, have become permanent gifts to the town. I will certainly be going back out to take a look. Go visit and also remember that the Salton Sea is one of the most environmentally important places in the country and must be protected. Thank You!
Not your typical behind the scenes setup, except maybe for me. Shooting the board of directors for the Palm Springs Air Museum in front of two aircraft, showing both fully and the sign on the hangar. Two rows of 19 people sitting and standing. And very simply it came out perfect. Will show the final photograph when it is released. Could not be happier with the results!
Lighting was the Broncolor 1200L Move, Broncolor Para 133 and a Broncolor Octabox for some fill. Had to balance it all out with the Sun in and out of some overcast, low behind me to my right. Camera was a Hasselblad H4D-40 with the Hasselblad HC 50mm lens.
Everything was all set up and ready to go before anyone got there. I shot 12 frames in succession in no more than two minutes.
I am honored to write the feature and shoot the photographs..
Our 2018 Annual Gala was a huge success! Special guest, Motion Picture “Top Gun” Commander “Viper” Tom Skerritt punctuated the evening as we honored our Heroes among us.
Our World War II PBY Catalina “Harriet’s Chariot” was dramatically presented in lighting and staging allowing us to announce the beginning of it’s restoration to it’s status of being such a very historic aircraft and part of our Living History here at the Palm Springs Air Museum.

The precision of the United States Navy Blue Angels even just coming back to the flightline is amazing! At the Naval Air Facility El Centro Airshow this past Saturday. With the Palm Springs Air Museum, we were very happy to have been part of it with our own aircraft too! Thanks!
The Palm Springs Air Museum took four aircraft to the NAF El Centro Airshow this past weekend. These are not them. Took me along too. Good thing I brought a camera (or two)!
The United States Navy Blue Angels! At their opening demonstration for their 2018 flying season. We were very honored to bring our own aircraft to the Naval Air Facility El Centro for this exciting Air Show! And just as excited to bring you a look at our experience in photos and video. Thanks!
