Why the name Aeronautica? First of all it starts with my romantic retro notion of the exotica of aviation past and present, ships, oceanic travel. Adventure. Gung ho pursuits.
Aeronautica delivers compelling photography & film to leading hotels of the world, the hospitality industry, multi-national corporations, advertising agencies, editorial clients and green energy companies.
