As one of Hiller Aviation’s DC-3 pilots, I have had the occasion to fly this fabulous aircraft to airshows and events to showcase it’s rich history.  Sagar has added to this quest by capturing excellent images of the DC-3 both in flight and on the ground.  A particular example is a photograph of the DC-3 landing at Travis AFB, taken from the Travis Control Tower.  The image is beautifully shot with the DC-3 center stage, just initiating the landing flair with a Lockheed C-5B in the background.  One can only marvel at the technology differences between these two aircraft in such a short period of time.  Sagar has added to the timeless lore of such beautiful aircraft in his artful talent as a photographer.

I first worked with Sagar while on the C17 West Coast Airshow Demo Team. This guy is awesome! He is a real professional, and the photos he took of our jet are top shelf. I really like how he worked with my whole team; we got some very unique shots of the crew. We are using some of his pics to help advertise our demo team for future events. Sagar is a great photographer, with excellent people skills.

For the last three years Sagar has been a great asset as a volunteer at the Hiller Aviation Museum. He has been very accommodating and responsive to the photographic needs of the museum. He has a sharp eye for detail of the varied subjects he shoots.
He has shot everything from museum displays and events to the table settings for our yearly gala fundraiser. His photographs have appeared in the museums marketing promotions, membership newsletter and used extensively in our video slide show of our Vertical Challenge Air Show, which we send to the participants as a thank you. His photographs grace the walls of the museum in our Salute to the DC-3 display. Sagar is been very helpful with our Young Eagles program. Not only does he assist with the marshalling of aircraft, he also helps to load and unload the aircraft of the young passengers. Sagar is an asset to the safe environment around the Young Eagles flights

I have had the pleasure to work with Sagar on both ground and aerial shots.  He is meticulous and professional with a vision and passion for photography.  His pictures never cease to amaze me.

I saw this image and knew that I had to purchase it for my wife. Sagar matched the print, matte, and frame perfectly and managed to deliver it to me on time on a short notice and I thought the price was very reasonable. My wife loved the picture and that made me very happy. I continuously peruse his web site looking for other prints with which to surprise my wife.

Sagar has taken many photographs of our Helicopter both in the air and on the ground.  The pictures are suitable for framing. They're that good.  Day or night. Good weather or bad.  We've enjoyed working with him.

Thanks so much for the idea and creation of the Blue Angels Hornet art work you did for the etching on the Pontiac Solstice Wind Restrictor! It turned out perfect. The photos you took of it, they could not have been better. I will be sending you some more work to photograph so I can add the images to my web site. You would not believe the response I have been getting from the design; I will sell many more of my product because of your idea and the product images you provided me with.

                  Thank you greatly,
