Head Photographer / Specializing in Remote Camera Launch Imagery
Alan Walters has been a photographer for about a decade. In the beginning he shot primarily pictures of wildlife. Living close to Kennedy Space Center and the adjacent Cape Canaveral Air Force Station brought a different type of flying creature to Alan’s attention – rockets. For some time he would coordinate with his friends that worked at the space center so he could get close – but he still wanted to get closer, to record the history he saw taking place along Florida’s Space Coast.
His opportunity came when he began working with a media outlet that covers space. This allowed him to be accredited for access to KSC. Alan has been photographing space-related events for the past five years and has begun working for AmericaSpace in a similar fashion. Alan works as a computer programmer in his day job, he writes automatic vehicle tracking software (GPS-based systems) – primarily for EMS first responders.
