Rocket Aerial Photos


I’ve combined art and science in these amazing photos taken by 35mm cameras onboard custom built rockets. Some depict colorful scenery or unusual topography. Others provide an interesting view of old mines or ghost towns. And every photo captures the excitement and action of rocket flight!

Each image can be purchased as a ready-to-frame, glossy 8” x 10” print. Prints come mounted, matted and signed. They make great gifts too!

Email for ordering information.

LDRS XX, 2001

In 2001 I attended the 20th annual “Large and Dangerous Rocket Ships” launch. This is the Tripoli Rocketry Association’s national convention for high power rocketry, held in different locations around the country. I have a few aerial and on-site photos of this event.

Safety is my number one priority! All necessary steps are taken to ensure that my rocketry activities are safe at all times and do not endanger people or property. If you fly rockets, please do it safely.

Contact your local rocketry club for information about rules and regulations affecting rocketry.
