Mike Fizer

Mike Fizer got a camera for his 15th birthday. A few days later he was shooting pictures when an airborne motocross bike landed on him and sent him to the hospital. That put an end to his plans of following his father's footsteps as an Air Force fighter pilot, but it gave him a new interest: photography. Mike interned for noted aviation photographer Paul Bowen, started his own photography business in 1983, worked for Flying magazine for four years, and has been staff photographer for AOPA Pilot magazine since 1988. In this months' Profile, AVweb's Joe Godfrey talks with Mike about the art and science of aviation photography, and Mike shares his tips about how to improve the pictures you take.
