    Default Whoa!

    Wow, those are some awesome pics. I wonder how he does
    it too. I am also curious about what camera he uses.

    Those pictures are pretty sweet. Thanks for sharing.

    Glen Ellman of www.fortworthfire.com is an amazing photographer. He is my personal favorite for best fire service photographer, though I know there are many others who are great also. There is also a guy from the Baltimore City FD who does excellent work. He has had some of his photos published on the covers of Firehouse and Fire Engineering.

    Glen used to teach a fire photography seminar at the Baltimore Firehouse Expo. It was a great seminar. They haven't had him teach it in a few years now. I did see him last year at the expo taking pictures for Firehouse magazine.

    He may have changed his equipment in the last year. But until a year ago he still drove around with 3-4 Nikon F4's in his vehicle. He used all Nikon lenses with F2.8 speed ratings. He also used 200 speed Fuji Superia film for all of his photos. He has his own commercial photography business along with being the photographer for the Ft. Worth FD.

    It is just amazing to look at his work. Especially with the great exposures he is able to get during night scenes.

    I only wish I had the time to devote to fire photography. It seems like I'm always too busy...doing initial attack. I enjoy photography and video tremendously. My equipment icludes a Nikon F5 body, Nikon N8008 body, Nikor 49mm AF lens, Nikor 70-300 ED AF lens, Nikor 35-105 AF lens, Tamron 500mm manual focus lens, Nikon Speedlight SB-24 flash, and a Panasonic AG460U S-VHS camera. I just started using Fuji Professional Grade Provia ISO400 slide film...and also am experimenting with Kodak Portra-400UC 135-36 Professional Color Print Film.

    There is no set aperature or film speed that one can recommend for fire photography. Each situation is different...each camera, lens and perspective differs....so you'll need to experiment with your equipment. Don't buy bargain equipment...you get what you pay for.

    Go out...and enjoy!

    Although Fuji film is generally rated slightly higher than Kodak, Kodak still makes superb film. Though, in technical tests, and in the opinion in many professional photographers, Fuji does make better film.

    If you go to www.thewatchdesk.com/forum, under General Fire Department Discussions there is a section for fire photography. There is a thread on there titled "photo info". You may find this very interesting and informative. You may even want to contribute to that thread.

    Sorry folks but photos associated with this thread have been removed. Its fine to post pics you have permission to post and such, but you cannot post photos that are clearly copywritten. Since the pics in this thread that were posted had huge 'copyright' watermarks, we had to take them down.

    Thanks
    WebTeam

    Thanks for referring my skydiving buddy Troy,
    I told him that you acknowledged his photography and he wanted me to thank you. Send him a "hello" so he can thank you personally, he is wondering who you are - mystery person. Thanks again.
