Shoreham Airshow 2010 - Park Cameras Photo Workshop
Shoreham Air Show in Sussex has to be one of my favourite shows of the year for many reasons - including proximity to home and the fact that the flight line is illuminated by the sun for the whole day. I’ve been to air shows where you end up shooting into the sun which doesn’t help when trying to create decent images. All you get is a headache from looking into the sun for too long. All the images in this blog where created by me during the last 5 years at the Shoreham Air Show.

The 2010 Shoreham Airshow will be special in many ways. It’s the Centenary year of Shoreham Airport and the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. The flying show this year starts at 11:30 AM and concludes approximately 6 hours later. I’ve been asked by Park Cameras to host an air show photography workshop based in the VIP enclosure on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 August 2010. This promises to be a great day for all as we’ll benefit from our own parking area away from the crowds and our own space within the VIP enclosure.
Whether or not you’re an aviation enthusiast, a place in the VIP enclosure has to be the best way to experience Shoreham Air Show - the whole air show centres around the VIP enclosure giving you opportunities to get photographs other will not.
There is always plenty going on in the air at Shoreham and this year is no exception. There’ll be the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, aerobatics, parachute displays, the Harrier and Tornado Euro Fighter. For more information go to the Shoreham Airshow website www.shorehamairshow.com.
Park Cameras have put together an incredible package including a pre-show airside tour with loads of opportunities to get some special shots away from the crowds. With any luck there will also be a special photo call with the Breitling wing walkers, their 1940s Boeing Stearman biplanes and flight crew. Places for this special package will be snapped up quickly so be sure to book your place today. You can find out more by going to the dedicated page on the Park Cameras website.
And another good reason to book your place now - all participants will benefit fro exclusive pre-airshow offers! I look forward to seeing you the 21or 22 August for what will be a stunning two days of airborne thrills and entertainment.
