We’ve known Kyle for about 4 years, he lives down the street from us. Kyle will graduate from Clemens HS this Spring. He plans on joining the military to become a pilot/chaplain. I know it’s seems like a strange combination, but think about it: he will be closer to the Heavens while flying, so his prayers won’t have to travel as far. Kyle was the recipient of a scholarship that starts him in pilot training this Summer. He plans on joining the Air Force Reserves afterwards, and eventually becoming an officer, when he finishes up his schooling. Since Kyle likes to dress up, I thought, “why not capture him ‘Vanity Fair Style’?” The image turned out exactly as I thought it would. I think he could actually be on the cover of a major styling magazine. “Lookin’ mighty dapper”.

When we discussed what he wanted for his portrait session, he wanted something with airplanes and a runway. I called a friend of mine, Jeff W, and he helped set it up. On the day of the session, we met Brad, call sign “Hoss”, at the flight line, and he escorted us to where the planes were. Every thing worked out perfectly. There were A-10s on the runway, T-38s everywhere, and a couple of F-16s at the end of the tarmac. I could’ve stayed there all day and shot, but we had to get back to the studio to finish up his session. I must say, “Jeff, you are the man”. Thanks for helping set this session up. And Brad, your hospitality and genuine concern for us to get the best images, really stood out. I can’t say enough about the entire experience. Kyle, I hope all of your dreams become a reality. We need more pilots in this country, but more importantly, we need more men of integrity. You are definitely on the right path. We hope your career leads many, many more people to the Truth.
