RAF Museum Cosford Nightshoot

at RAF Museum Cosford, Shropshire, England


We've all seen the external exhibits at the RAF Museum at Cosford, right? Well now's your chance to photograph them all at night on 16 March 2019. We have been working with the Museum staff on a number of events and this is the first one we will bring you. All aircraft will stay in their Museum setting as none can be moved however we will endeavour to move anything from around them that can be moved. All will be lit at the same time using our LED lights, which will give you the opportunity to move from one to another at your own pace.

The event will not include any catering so please remember to bring something with you.

We will start at approximately 5:30PM after a short safety briefing and will end at 9:00PM at the latest. 

Will this be your first nightshoot or are you still finding your feet? Well don't worry as the team all of whom are published photographers are there to help. We suggest that you bring a your camera and lenses up to 200mm, tripod, remote shutter release and some warm clothing. Don't bring your flashguns as you wont need them either. 

Please remember that you are required to wear a Hi-Viz Jacket/Vest at our events, this is for your safety and help us to control all of you in the dark.

Parking for the event will be the Museum car park in front of the visitors centre.
