Tom A. Warner
In 1990, I moved to Rapid City, South Dakota and piloted the B-1B Lancer for 5 years. The Black Hills of South Dakota were simply spectacular and reminded me of my years growing up in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. The clear, dark skies of South Dakota provided a great canvas for night/low-light photography and allowed me to develop a long desired astronomy hobby.
In 1995, I moved to Del Rio, Texas and spent two years as a T-38 instructor pilot before returning to Rapid City, South Dakota. In 1997, following my career as an Air Force pilot, I combined my interest in photography and passion for flying by pursuing aerial photography. The challenge and freedom of maneuvering an aircraft to the exact right spot to capture images was very rewarding.
In 2009, I began capturing time-lapse imagery using DSLRs, and the atmosphere in motion is my favorite subject. My YouTube channel contains these and other videos as well as my high-speed video imagery.
In 2012, my family and I started traveling abroad and to date we have had the incredible opportunity to travel to all seven continents and over 60 countries. My Around The World image gallery contains images from our travels.
