Rob’s love of aviation stemmed from growing up around aircraft and jet noise. Growing up in this environment had a profound effect on him and fueled his desire to fly. Rob joined the Air Force in 1987 and spent his 21 year career as a boom operator. Rob first became interested in photography during high school and when he started flying it seemed only natural to photograph the amazing sights his job afforded him. Rob’s photos have been published by Air International and Aeronautika magazines and three of his photographs were featured in the book “F-15 Eagle Engaged”.
