Jim Anderson has been a pilot since 1968, inheriting his father’s love of flying and a 1940 J-3 Piper Cub. The love of flying and an interest in photography led to the establishment of Anderson Aerial Photography in 1980. Jim added a 1978 172 Skyhawk to the business which has increased his photography coverage area. After 31 years as a Speech and Language Pathologist in Traverse City, Jim retired in 1997 to pursue aerial photography. Jim and his wife Jan reside in Traverse City.
