Through The Lens

Mitch Coad

1. How did you get into aviation photography?

I became passionate for aviation when I flew onboard the Qantas A380 and 747, respectively, in 2012 from Sydney to Los Angeles and back. Ever since then I would occasionally go to Adelaide Airport and watch the aeroplanes arrive and depart, sometimes even taking photos. I began spotting properly in 2015, however more frequently in January of 2018. Ever since then I continued my passion, and I love every moment of it, even when its pouring down with rain!

2. Why aviation photography?

Mostly because I love watching and capturing how these tubes of metal we call aircraft fly in the sky! As much as I understand the physics behind aviation, the reality of man-made sky buses flying still baffles me. I also do other types of photography such as landscape, aerial and a bit of car photography too. But aviation photography is my favourite.
