Commercial photographer in Gosport - Spirit of the 40s event at Explosion Museum in Gosport, Hampshire
Today I was working as official photographer for Explosion Museum in Gosport and photographed their ‘Spirit of the 40s’ event on Sunday 3rd April 2011.
We had slightly cool but fine weather which made for good photography conditions for this commercial work commission. There was a range of mock battles and events throughout the day – all of which kept me fully occupied and I worked at the event from 10am until late afternoon.
The day included American paratroops and British infantrymen taking part in a mock battle, live gun fire re-enactments, Allo Allo style sketch performances, military vehicle displays, a mock air raid and even a themed 40s style dance. There was also all sorts of wartime memorabilia and experts on hand to explain details about the items on show. PLUS many themed costumed individuals AND – entry to the museum included in the ticket price.
If you are organizing an event and require a high caliber event or commercial photography service – please feel free to get in touch to check out my availability and to see what I may be able to offer YOU.
You can also see samples of my event photography in my website portfolio or on the Facebook page for Martin Lewis Photographer.
The organisers of this event were the staff of Explosion Museum in Gosport and they are also connected to Action Stations Museum in Portsmouth and are a friendly and committed team.
You can find their Explosion website and further contact details here: www.explosion.org.uk The images will be available for viewing by the staff and directors of Explosion Museum soon and will be available for use in their website, press, PR and publicity. I know they are planning to hold a similar event next year and so I hope these images will help them develop and publicise this fantastic event for the future. I believe Explosion Museum is also running some current ‘deals’ on membership. Why not get in touch, if this interests YOU?
