Photo Shoots

Bringing you the best opportunities in aviation photography…


Dedicated Photo Shoots, often with Workshops attached.

There are two forms of Photo Shoot operations… One regularly engages with the ‘home team’ Royal Air Force to bring small groups of photographers a day behind the scenes to raise money directly for station charities, either as a dedicated COAP visit or assisting in wider Enthusiast events. Often these are short notice and are collated via e-mail application, and we undertake a share of the work on behalf of the organisers to assist in the preparation and delivery of a number of allocated spaces / tickets.

Our placing of photographers over 2016-17 events has had a hand in raising over £3500 for station charities, something which we are very proud of. Just check out some of the RAF testimonials about what it has meant to enthusiast photographers seeing and learning more about the RAF at home!

The second type of Photo Shoot concentrates on the preservation scene on specific themes, mostly in the UK and often in conjunction with the re-enactment pros at TimeLine Events Ltd. We are also expanding these dedicated shoots into Europe and the USA.

…Perfect scenes, legendary machines, period equipment and personnel, all expertly positioned and lit for you to capture!

Not only do these Photo Shoots include memorable recreations and re-enactments of stunning scenes, they also feature a full pre-shoot Workshop to ensure you get the most from the shoot and get the very best out of your photography. They will sometimes include an overnight stay/morning post-processing Workshop. A truly fantastic way to improve your photography in a relaxed environment and get to grips with all levels of image editing afterwards.

    Rolf, Photo Shoot attendee.

    Leigh, Photo Shoot attendee.

  • It was just truly incredible and something I will never forget. I didn’t just have such an amazing time and snapped some beautiful aircraft, I met amazing people who I am still in contact with.

    Josef, Photo Shoot attendee.

  • Exceptional, unrestricted access to life on a front-line squadron that is normally denied to members of the public. An excellent visit and I have to pinch myself to bring home the fact that I really was there and I was that close .
