I'm an aviation videographer from Calgary, Canada, and this is the official website of my aviation YouTube channel, "dude8472productions". This site supplements some of what I do in my aviation hobby outside of my regular videos. Scroll down for more about me.

So, who is "dude8472productions"?

I'm an aviation videographer based in Calgary, Canada, and have been a plane spotter

at my home airport of YYC Calgary International Airport since a cold winter evening in 2013

when I decided to head out to the airport with a cheap camcorder and tripod. In that time,

I've  uploaded over 700 aviation videos to my YouTube channel, upgraded my equipment,

and met tons of like-minded individuals here in Calgary.

One frequent question I get is, why "dude8472productions"? The simple answer? I was young,

wanted a YouTube channel, and later bought a domain name. So I just stuck with it!

Aside from plane spotting, I also love to travel. I take in-flight footage on board my flights 

where possible, fill my SD cards with photos from the terminals and will be doing some trip reports starting in Spring 2018. Watch this space!

The majority of my footage is taken at Calgary International Airport, but I've also made trips
throughout Canada to Edmonton (YEG), Vancouver (YVR), Toronto (YYZ), and Montreal (YUL), and filmed lots of footage from their respective airports.

Outside of the Great White North, I've also made trips to the United States, and filmed footage from Los Angeles (LAX), and San Diego (SAN), along with Paine Field (PAE), home to Boeing's widebody production line and some incredible viewpoints. I've also been to Japan and spent hours plane spotting at Tokyo's two main airports, Tokyo-Haneda (HND) and Tokyo-Narita (NRT).
