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.

know if you don't see something in the print store that
you would like and we can get it added.
