Liz Kaszynski has one of the coolest photography jobs in the world. As one of the 10 Lockheed Martin aerial photographers certified to take pictures from the back of fighter jets — and their only female photographer for the F-35 — she photographs and rides in some of the most advanced flying machines on Earth.
In the video above, we get to go behind the scenes with Kaszynski and see her in action.
From photographing F-22s from the backseat of an F-16 over the Hawaiian islands to sitting in a Blackhawk helicopter with the door wide open during sunset over Tucson, Kaszynski’s aerial photography experiences are vast and definitely worthy of envy.
Check out the behind the scenes video up top, and then head over to her page on the International Society of Aviation Photography website to browse through some of the images she’s captured over the years. You can also keep up with her through Twitter.
