About me

Georgi Petkov aviation photography

My name is Georgi Petkov from Plovdiv, Bulgaria and I am freelance photographer. Aviation is my passion since my early childhood. I love everything that can fly since I can remember myself. My first attempt in aviation photography was in 1992 when US Navy Blue Angels performed over Plovdiv Airport.

In the beginning I didn’t have proper camera and the results were not good. That is why in 2001 I’ve purchased my first decent camera – Canon Rebel G QD with Tamron lens. Since then the results are much better.

Currently I use Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and Canon EOS 70D in combination with Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L II , Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM and Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lenses.
