Like any photojournalist, Sergeant Larry Reid Jr. is interested in capturing moments that might otherwise go unseen—Reid just happens to do a lot of his work from the skies.

Sargeant Reid is an Air Force photojournalist and one of two the official photographers for the Air Demonstration Squad, Thunderbirds. Watch this FStoppers original video where Reid discusses his gear choices, creative control and what it’s like to make pictures while going over 500 mph.
