On this week’s podcast, Rad interviews Dino Garner, former Army Ranger, biophysicist, and self-taught military aviation photographer who learned how to shoot on film while riding an F-4, F-14, A-4, F-15, F-16, and FA-18. His 500-page coffee-table book, TOPGUN: The Otherworldly Dreams of a Lifelong Ten Year Old, is due to be published in September 2022, with Kickstarter, IndieGoGo and GoFundMe campaigns beginning in May 2022.
In the episode, Dino shares how he was invited to shoot while riding Air Force planes and how the Pentagon learned of it, leading to many many more opportunities to shoot in the air. He talks about one time when he almost ejected himself out of an F-16!
Dino also talks about his time in the African savannah protecting wildlife against poachers and then joining the Army Rangers afterward. He also discusses the process of creating his coffee table book, the out-of-this-world shots he took, and the many amazing contributors who helped put it all together.
