Guy Aceto started painting, drawing, and taking pictures when he was a child. His passions have always been art and aviation and he has had the gifts and talents to use those two passions as his career.

Working for 21 years as the Art Director for AIR FORCE Magazine, his photos were on the cover of more than 35 issues in a fifteen-year period. He told countless stories through his work, taking the reader behind the scenes to look at the service from the flightline to the cockpit of some of the hottest aircraft flying. He has amassed some 500 hours in fighters, tanker and transport aircraft. His travels have taken him to Japan, Hawaii, Alaska, South Korea, Europe, and the Persian Gulf as well as throughout the continental United States. Guy did the layout and design of more than 200 issues of the magazine and a number of other special publications. He continues to work with AIR FORCE Magazine in a freelance capacity.

Guyís images of Asbury Park, New Jersey and other rock and roll photographs have also appeared on DVD and CD covers and other musicianís websites. In 2006 Guy had the great fortune to photograph several of the Bruce Springsteen and the Seeger Session Bandís concerts for Backstreets magazine.
