Aviation Photography



About the Photographer
Alain Thimmesch, director and publisher of Skycontrol, also developing his talents in the field of aviation photography, has the eye for getting the right photograph of an aircraft. Alain’s interest in aviation photography was ignited in 2005 when he created Skycontrol and started attending airshows and aviation events. Alain now lives in Brussels, Belgium. As he is not (yet) a pilot but loves flying, he never misses an opportunity to take part in a flight for air-to-air photography. He also used to attend airshows and other aviation events in order to capture spectacular moments in aviation.

This section encompasses creative aviation photography and is dedicated to providing high quality images for both aviation enthusiasts (e.g. private pilots who would like to have photos of their aircraft in flight) and professionals but also for aviation related companies including airlines, advertising agencies, media, website developers, graphic design companies, editors, corporate marketing departments, and other organisations. Most of the time, Digital Eyecatcher works on assignement and has developed two very attractive Event Concepts.

Special Event Concept

1° Possibility – for attendees and hosts
This concept aims to help both attendees and hosts to leave the headaches of photography behind. The system is simple: we take professional photos at your event and you and your guests can view the pictures taken within the 48 hours. Log on to www.digitaleyecatcher.com and purchase only the pictures wanted.
We can preserve your privacy: all photographs taken can be made accessible in a separate folder with a private access code.  Instant delivery is guaranteed with a download code which is provided after payment.  Depending on the needs, each photo can be purchased in 3 different resolution qualities:

  • High Resolution: 49€
  • Medium size Photos: 9€
  • Small size Photos: 5€

2° Possibility – for events hosts
This concept aims to supply events hosts with professional photos and to give them the opportunity to deliver photos to their clients as a souvenir of the event. We provide the event host with a CD-ROM containing the photos in high resolution (about 250 photos for a half-day event and about 500 photos for a full-day event). The photos are also put online (800×600 resolution) in a special folder (with or without access code). The participants to the event can download the photos for free, with the organisators’ compliments.

  • Half-day event : 499€
  • Full-day event : 995€

These prices include:

  • The provision of the photographical service
