Shoot the shoot with Tyler Stableford

Get a behind the lens look at what it takes to produce the creative imagery you see on our site. Right now, we're featuring photographer Tyler Stableford, who recently gave us a sneak peek into a recent shoot he did with fighter jets at Buckley Air Force Base in Denver, Colorado. Says Stableford of the shoot: "Very few people have a chance to fly with five F16s over the Rocky Mountains." See how he captured the human angle of the fighter pilots and more.
