I had a great day out this month at RAF Fair­ford and the Royal In­ter­na­tional Air Tat­too. I was there with reader Dave Barker and avi­a­tion pro Lloyd Hor­gan for this month’s Ap­pren­tice fea­ture, and I think I prob­a­bly learned as much as our reader did!

Lloyd’s knowl­edge of air­craft and Nikon cam­eras was amaz­ing, but when we first ap­proached him he was wor­ried his cam­era gear wasn’t ‘pro­fes­sional’ enough. Lloyd uses a Nikon D7100 for his aerial pho­tog­ra­phy and an older D300s for reg­u­lar mo­tor­sport as­sign­ments and he pointed out that most of the pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­phers we fea­ture in Ap­pren­tice use full-frame Nikons.

But Lloyd’s pho­to­graphic port­fo­lio speaks for it­self (see page 13) and he quickly demon­strated that it’s the skill of the pho­tog­ra­pher that re­ally mat­ters – you don’t have to use a costly cam­era to get pro-qual­ity pic­tures!

I was also de­lighted that best-sell­ing au­thor and pho­tog­ra­pher Michael Free­man agreed to be our in­ter­view sub­ject this month on page 76. But that’s not the only ex­cit­ing news. Start­ing next month, Michael will be bring­ing all his knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence to N-Photo on a reg­u­lar ba­sis as he takes over Nikon Know-how, the first part of our Niko­pe­dia sec­tion. This is a real coup for N-Photo and we look for­ward to a great blend of in­sights, ex­pla­na­tions and in­struc­tions for all Nikon users.
