We have teamed up with Chappers Photography to offer a unique, hands-on course in aviation photography. You can expect to learn the theory behind aviation photography, pick up some tips and tricks and try out your newly learned skills in a range of settings, scenarios and cameos in and around the RAF Museum. The course will start at 10.00am, your day will begin with some informative photography theory. You will then test out some of this knowledge using the incredible collection of aircraft and exhibits as your subjects.
