Based in Los Angeles, Chad Slattery transitioned from general photojournalism to specializing in aviation and aerospace subjects twenty years ago. He's a contributing editor at Air & Space / Smithsonian magazine, which has just published his 30th cover for them.

On average once a month he shoots air-to-air stills of commercial airliners and executive aircraft aboard a highly modified photo Learjet 25B.

Nels discovered his first camera at age 16, in a box in the back of a closet. It was an old malfunctioning twin-lens reflex that had belonged to his grandfather, with a few frames left on the roll inside. He clicked off a couple of random shots of his brothers and dropped the film off to be developed.
The prints that came back included the blurry photos of his brothers from that week— along with holiday snaps of him and his brothers, shot by his grandpa, 8 years previously. The camera had secretly juxtaposed these moments across half his lifetime, and this made him feel like he’d been smacked on the head with a magic wand.
