Through The Lens

Joe Hicks

1. How did you get into aviation photography?

It all really started when a friend introduced me to the world of aviation around 5 years ago. Upon discovering the interest, I began collecting model aircraft. As of today, I’m still collecting models however the interest for photography and videography really came around in early 2018. At the time, I didn’t have a camera, and had completely no knowledge on photography, lighting etc – not even aircraft schedules! My first time plane spotting occured at a backlit lookout at Adelaide Airport, with my sitting in the car with my iPad, and filming aircraft out the window! At the time, it was really only domestic aircraft (737s, A320s etc), as I had no idea when the international arrivals came in!

2. Why aviation photography?

I chose to pursuit aviation photography, because it corresponded with my interest of aviation. Before aviation photography, I had no skills or interest in general photography – all of that really came from aviation photography! From this interest I have began experimenting with other photography, though I still find photographing aircraft enthralling and exciting – certainly a great way to get a feel for photography!
