Photographer Spotlight – Chris Pasley

By: Category: FriendsUncategorized

We here at Phxspotters are happy to announce our first Spotter Spotlight. We are happy to announce that Chris Pasley has been picked for our first monthly spotter spotlight. Chris Pasley was just a small child when he picked up his first Aviation Book of “Air War in Vietnam” and he could not get enough. He attended his first Air show in 1996 “El Toro”.

Chris uses the Canon XS and a 300mm lens. Chris is cutting image of what a spotter should be. And Chris is always up for some good spotting. We are happy that he is a part of the team. We look forward to many more years of great photography.
