A rare look inside the luxurious (and tacky) world of the private jet

Wired has a fantastic look inside the world of photographer Nick Gleis, an artist who specializes in photographing the interior of private planes. His assignments come from the wealthiest of owners – and show some rare footage of the inside of the ultimate in private jet luxury.

Some of them (actually, most of them) are amazingly tacky – lots of gold, photos of naked women and more leather than a biker bar, but I can’t help feel a bit jealous. Even though I’ve had my fair share of first class travel, none of that compares to being served breakfast in a real bed.

Head on over to wired for the gallery, and a brilliant article on the technical aspects of making photos inside a private plane.
