Welcome to Van Gilder Aviation Photography. This is just a small sample of pictures that I have taken over the years at air shows and airports. Most are from the Southern California area.  New sections and features are added regularly. The updates section will always list the latest additions, with the newest being at the top of the list. There are free desktop wallpapers for personal use and free desktop jigsaw puzzles for those days when weather keeps you from the airport.

The long awaited print store is now open! Click the banner below to visit.
