INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM FOR AVIATION PHOTOGRAPHY

Welcome!

It’s a pleasure to welcome you to this, the 14th Annual… INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM for AVIATION PHOTOGRAPHY! Our mission is to provide a major international forum for the art and science of aviation photography; to provide a means for the exchange of aviation photography ideas, technique, philosophy, and equipment; and perhaps most importantly, to provide a mechanism for communication, education, and friendship among those who have a professional stake in, interest in, or simple love of aviation photography. We’re very pleased you could join us. We have a terrific schedule lined up and the slate of speakers and special guests is truly world class. On the following pages you will find a day-by-day, hour-by-hour program covering each of the next three days. We hope you will find many things of interest! Larry D. Grace, ISAP President ISAP Board and Staff Members

ISAP GEORGE HALL LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

Jay Miller Jay Miller began photographing aviation subjects nearly 50 years ago and, in addition to countless shoots for a wide variety of editorial and commercial clients; he has authored or co-authored 36 books and more than a thousand magazine and newspaper articles; and has served several aviation museums in a variety of roles, including as the director of both the American Airlines C.R. Smith Museum and the Flying Heritage Collection, amassed by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen and today displayed at the Flying Heritage and Combat Armor Museum. Over the years Miller assembled one of the world’s most significant aviation and aerospace reference libraries, consisting of approximately 10,000 books dating to 1765, more than 100,000 periodicals, and some 1.2 million photographic images. His collection was acquired by the Aerospace Education Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1992, and was transferred to the San Diego Air & Space Museum in 2015. In addition, Miller co-founded ISAP in 2001 and led the organization until 2013.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Brig. Gen. Keith B. Connolly Brig. Gen. Keith B. Connolly entered the Air Force in January 1956 as an aviation cadet and through his distinguished career, he logged more than 4,800 flying hours in F-86s, F-100s, A-7s, F-4s, F-15s, and F-16s. That experience included 172 combat missions over North Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos.

He will talk about his experiences flying the F-100 Super Sabre, the first mass-produced fighter to break the sound barrier in straight-and-level flight thanks to its afterburner. The first operational jet used in Vietnam, Connolly logged 1,987 hours in the F-100 over 10 years. His presentation will cover tactical fighter employment concepts as well as the Super Sabre itself. GOING THE DISTANCE! NIKON GPAC NIKON NPS Scott Diussa • Joseph “JC” Carey • Brien Aho Once again it’s time for the amazing and always entertaining Nikon-sponsored Great Paper Airplane Contest (GPAC)! As ever, prizes will be awarded in direct proportion to the engineering talent manifest in the lift-over-drag figures achieved by these fragile flying machines and their talented builders. Two prizes will be given; one for covering the longest distance and one for staying aloft for the longest period of time.
