Shoreham Air Show 2010 - Workshop Report

Last weekend, 21st & 22nd August 2010 I was honoured to host Park Cameras first photography workshop at Shoreham Air Show, down on the south coast of England, close to Brighton. The event was well attended by a great bunch of photographers. Despite the typically English summer weather a great day was had by all.

A little protection from the English summer!

Here are a few BTS (behind the scenes) photographs taken by my fellow photographer Paul Noble who provided invaluable help and guidance to the participants throughout the weekend.

The group were lucky enough to experience a unique air side photo walk led by members of the air show volunteer staff. The pilots and ground crews were very cooperative and even staged a mock WWII style scramble - see images under the above link.

I did manage to get a few frames myself during the day and tried out a few techniques to share the next time I lead an aviation photo workshop, which with any luck will be next year - despite the weather participant feedback was excellent.

"Don't panic Mr Mainwaring!!!" There were a fine bunch of very authentic re-enactors!

I for one am looking forward to next year or maybe sooner. If anyone who attended the Shore Air Show Photo Workshop is interested in a meet-up do get in touch.
