Airforce Photographer...

Hey All.

I am thinking about 'packing it all in', ie: quitting the Freelance Audio Engineer business, and joining the New Zealand Air Force as a photographer. It seems like a good way to mix my passion for Aeroplanes with my passion for photography. They have a world class 2 year photography course, then i would have to do 2 years active service after that...

What do you think guys?

"Active service" - when was the last time that the NZ airforce was involved in any conflict ?

Sounds like a great idea.

I think it's a brilliant opportunity.
Recently several friends and relatives have holidayed in NZ and all rave about the country.
My brother-in-law tells me that had he been 10 years younger(he's 57 and living in SA) he would have emigrated like a shot.
Mind I do think NZ like Australia are involved in all major conflicts.

They have been involved in every conflict that the US and the UK have been involved in. As a photographer dont expect all the best equipment either, cut backs within the NZ airforce have been major over the last few years, much the same as the UK.

I think you're probably excited about the idea, Chris and just need a shove to get your ass in gear. On either level (photographic or aeronautical) this would seem an opportunity very well suited to your interests. Both together is ideal. You're a very young man ....go for it, mate Smile

Go for it. If I'd had better career advice when at school, its probably a job/career that I would have aimed for. As you say, a great opportunity to mix your love of photography and aircraft in a job that (hopefully) you will enjoy.
