Jon has over 15 years aviation experience, both as an Air Traffic Controller and a helicopter pilot specialising in Search and Rescue and Surveillance. He has worked with the media on several occasions, and has experienced the complications of trying to deliver effective media, with personnel who are not familiar with the unique challenges of the aviation environment. He writes on aviation topics for various publications and is a regular contributor to Vertical magazine and Vertical 911.
Jon has a passion for both aviation and motion picture, having flown and filmed everything from paragliders and aerobatic light aircraft to military fast jets and helicopters.
Lloyd’s professional photography career began before he had even finished his formal qualification. He soon discovered a talent for capturing high-speed motorsports, and combined this with his passion for aviation, nurturing the skill necessary to capture stunning aerial images from cramped cockpits and cabins, in situations that offer no second chances for the shot.
Lloyd has extensive experience working with air arms and aviation organisations all over the world, on behalf of both internationally renowned publications and OEMs. He prides himself on his ability to integrate with aircrews; safely and reliably delivering beautiful images of them and their machines at work.
