Test pilots risk their life to make the lives of others saver. We visit America‘s only civilian test pilot school in the Mojave Desert, where top pilots get their higher education on 25 different aircrafts. They survive, because they never stop to learn.

About Photographer

In addition to producing award-winning photography for a global roster of clients, including Nokia, Wells Fargo, The U.S. Army and more, Krantz has devoted much of his career to capturing the American west, a sliver of the United States that, for so many, encapsulate its history and spirit at its purest. The lauded commercial artist, whom Communication Arts profiled in a recent cover story, is also a fine artist. He’s represented in New York’s prestigious Danziger Projects Gallery, along with many of the world’s most prominent photographers, including Annie Leibovitz, Vik Muniz and Chuck Close. He’s been honored by the likes of Communication Arts, The American Photography Awards, The Lucie Awards, and The Art Director’s Club. And in 2010, the IPA named Krantz its 2010 Advertising Photographer of the Year.
