My name is Dirk Jan de Ridder. I am a renowned photojournalist specialised in military aviation. I work for armed forces, but I’m paid for it by the printed media that publish my work. Many air forces have benefited from the free exposure and photographs I provide them.
Rather than visiting air shows and other public events, I prefer to arrange private visits to air forces around the world. My job offers me amazing opportunities to take photos of military aircraft in the air, so called air-to-air photography. I could probably write a whole book about it, but this video on the right says more than 1000 words.
