About Russell Munson
Russell Munson’s first pictures taken at age 12 with the family Kodak were of airplanes. The love of airplanes led him to the love of photography, and he combined his two passions from then on. Munson made all of the photographs in Richard Bach’s classic book, “Jonathan Livingston Seagull;” wrote and photographed the book, “Skyward: Why Flyers Fly;” and wrote, photographed, narrated and produced his DVD, “Flying Route 66,” with music by Crawford Brown. Munson’s commercial photography and writing has appeared in advertising and magazines such as Flying and Air & Space Smithsonian. His fine art aerial landscape photographs are in the collections of private collectors, museums, and corporations. Munson holds a Commercial Pilot License, with Instrument, and Multi-engine ratings, and a DC-3 type rating. He owned his beloved 1962 Piper Super Cub for over 35 years, and in some 40 years as a pilot has flown a variety of aircraft from ultralights to corporate jets.
