  • Last Flight Out Photography!

    I get this question a lot..."Scotty, why Last Flight Out Photography?".

    Well, let's say you are on a trip to some exotic location like....uh....Iceland, for example. There are three flights heading home on the last day of your in the morning, one in the afternoon, and the last flight leaving just after dinner. Which one do you choose? If it were me, I would choose the Last Flight Out because I want to spend every last minute I can getting just ONE more shot....know what I mean?

    This blog/website highlights my favorite photographs from trips I make around the world. There's nothing I love more than sharing my passion for photography.

    I am a High School Photography Teacher at the Jakarta Intercultural School in Jakarta, Indonesia. If you are ever in this part of the world, give me a call, and we can go out shooting together. Thanks for visiting my site, and please come back again and again...

The new “Bug” arrived today. Well, it really is not new. It is a ’69 VW. Kayla calls it a “frog”, so the new name for the car is “The Frog”. I will drive this little car to and from school every day so that the Everest can be used by the girls.

We finally heard from our architect. We had three bids that were way over our budget. Burhan has written to them a detailed list of where cuts can be made or where certain materials were way over priced. The contractors will now submit second bids to answer the requests that Burhan has made. After those new bids come in, we will have sit down with Burhan and make design changes, maybe choose different materials, etc. to further bring the costs down. My friend, Chris, was able to reduce the intial bid by 43%. If we can do the same, we will be within our budget.

These two graduation photos will be published in a few magazines around town. I think the “Letters from Aceh” article was published recently as well…will let you know.

We heard some very sad news today. Our good friend, Rob Weber, pictured above with Tika, died last night of a heart attack while on vacation in Malaysia. He was on a motorcycle trip with a good friend of his. They stopped to look at a view. Apparently there was some kind of make shift bridge that he walked out on. It gave way, and he fell about 30 feet. He was taken to the hospital to have a bad cut on his leg stitched up. He was still alive. Later, while in the hospital, he suffered from a heart attack. He will really be missed. He was a great guy, a great teacher, and a great friend.

I went with the summer school program this morning on a field trip to the air field. I am being paid to take photos of the new summer school program called “JIS Academy”. The kids got to climb into the cockpit of a helicopter and plane…it brought back flying memories of my old days as a pilot.
