Fire Apparatus Photography is a provider of very high quality photographs
of fire service vehicles. Our databases include over 18,000 individual
listings of apparatus from Chuck Madderom of Santa Maria, California
and Shaun Ryan of Sparks, Nevada. Photography spans the globe including
apparatus from the United States and Africa, Asia, Europe and the Caribbean.
Apparatus from federal, state, county and municipal and private departments
are included. The listings in our database are searchable either as
MS XL spreadsheet software or in HTML format. Searches can be conducted
using a variety of topics: state, county, department, year, manufacturers,
builders, serial numbers, types and dates. The inventory is updated
periodically by both current and past photography by both Chuck Madderom
and Shaun Ryan.
RECENT UPDATES: Chuck has relocated to Santa Maria, California in Santa
Barbara County. This may provide additional photo opportunities in the
adjoining counties of San Luis Obispo and Los Angeles. Shaun will be
traveling to Austin, Texas on a regular basis in the coming years as
he has relocated a residence from North Carolina to the central Texas
The Consolidated database has been augmented with 568 records including
apparatus from Arizona, California, Nevada, North Carolina, Utah and
Virginia. We have also added records to the New Jersey listing which
now totals 1735 individual records.
We are hopefully going to add more recent photographs from 2012 and
2013 as well as continuing to add images from years past.
