Dirk GROTHE

Born in 1965 I started with planespotting in 1979 (with Super 8 movie) and with aviation photography in 1981.
After thousands of Kodak slides taken I quit in 1989 and spent the next 25 years with Windsurfing and Kitesurfing on the best beaches around  the world.

The aviation virus stroke back in 2014 (it never has gone completely) and since then I'm back at the airports, mainly at my hometown Hamburg (with Airbus Hamburg-Finkenwerder)and twice a year in Asia (Bangkok/Thailand and Cebu/Philippines).

 I was born in Bratislava in 1974 and aviation became my passion since early childhood, thanks to my father. I spent hundreds of hours every year at Bratislava airport since early 80´s and after the collapse of the communism I started to travel abroad. First within Europe, later behind its frontiers and today I spend most of my vacations around airports all over the world. But I only started to take pictures seriously around 2000, first on film, since 2006 on a digital SLR camera. My hometown airport is BTS, Slovakia, but also VIE, Austria. I am especially in love with Russian/Soviet made aircraft (most of all IL-18) and older aircraft in general. The modern ones simply do not have the shape, the sound and the smoke trail of the past :-) I am also lucky to work in the aviation business since my studies.

Paul DENTON
AN_HONGZHOU.jpg I was born in Nyon, Switzerland, in 1970. I hold two nationalities (Swiss and British, my origin being Manchester). My home airport is Geneva (GVA). I started spotting in 1985 when I was 15 and used a rather basic camera at the time and used to shoot prints. I work for a Swiss private bank (the same one since 1987...). I lived two years in Dubai (2008-2010) having had the opportunity to move there while working with the bank and I must say I love that region. The aircraft types I prefer are russians and the kind of "oldies" nowadays such as the B727s, B732s, L10s, etc, most of which are getting difficult to see and catch unfortunately...
