Join me, Tigz Rice, for a fully interactive portfolio-building styled shoot day designed to help you build confidence as a photographer, level up your directing skills and fine-tune your creative storytelling, whilst indulging in a little creative playtime.

Taking place in the main hangar at de Havilland Aircraft Museum – where the iconic Mosquito was conceived and the prototype built – we’ll spend either the morning or afternoon together in the presence of 3 incredible aircraft, including the original Mosquito prototype, with a supporting cast of two professional pinup models in period-accurate styling.

One particular outfit that will feature is a modern reproduction of this ‘Kestos’ style bra and tap pants made from an upcycled silk crêpe ‘Escape’ map of Italy, belonging to Patricia Knatchbull, 2nd Countess Mountbatten of Burma and third cousin to Queen Elizabeth II. The silk maps used to make this ensemble were gifted by her RAF serving sweetheart and refashioned into lingerie by her seamstress.

The aim of a styled shoot is to encourage playfulness and creativity in your photography, with less focus on teaching in favour of providing more opportunities to explore your own chosen narratives throughout your session. Breaking off into small groups, you will each take turns to step into the role of lead photographer, where you will direct your own scenes, poses and lighting.

Perfect for both the professional and hobbyist photographer alike, expect less set poses and tuition, and more gently-guided freedom of expression – although I will be on hand to offer professional advice, suggest camera settings and support your journey as much as you need.

GOT SOME

QUESTIONS?

CAN I BUY THIS AS A GIFT?

Absolutely, you thoughtful human you! If you know someone who loves all things photography, as well as either the pinup aesthetic or the de Havilland Mosquito (or perhaps even both!) then this would make a perfect gift. You can leave me a note on the order telling me the guest’s name, or email me the details.

WHAT LEVEL DO I NEED TO BE AT?

Planes & Pinups: The Mosquito is a creative play day, designed to give you the freedom to explore your own creativity and experiment with images you wouldn’t normally get the opportunity to shoot in your day-to-day life. Although there will be no official teaching moments during our time in the vintage aircraft museum in the presence of the original DH98 Mosquito prototype, Tigz Rice will be on hand throughout the event to offer technical advice on everything from posing and lighting to camera settings, making this event suitable for professional photographers and hobbyists alike.

HOW MANY ATTENDEES?

Attendees will be limited to a maximum of 8 per half day workshop, split into two groups of 4 photographers with a model each to work with. There will also be opportunities to shoot both models in one scene, with each photographer having the opportunity to direct.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

Your camera, memory cards and 1-2 lenses of your choosing. There are no right or wrong camera lenses – whatever you feel most comfortable shooting with is perfect. Though if you were to push me for an answer, I would suggest bringing something in the 35-50mm range to shoot wide and capture some of the architecture, plus something in the 70-135mm range for close-ups and portraiture.

Continuous lighting equipment will be made available for your usage. You will also have the opportunity to shoot with available light if that’s more your style. To protect the planes from light damage, there must be no flash photography during the event. If you have a pop-up flash on your camera, please make sure it is disabled before the start of the day.

IS LUNCH INCLUDED?

As this is a half-day event, lunch is not included. The de Havilland Aircraft Museum does have a small selection of light bites (sandwiches, crisps, chocolate, drinks) in its cafe, or feel free to pack a snack .

TALK TO ME ABOUT ACCESSIBILITY

All of the main display buildings at de Havilland Aircraft Museum are wheelchair accessible. Blue Badge parking is available. The nearest disabled toilet is located just down the hall from the main photoshoot area. If you are differently abled and require more information, please feel free to email Tigz for more information.

TALK TO ME ABOUT IMAGE RIGHTS
To make our Creative Play Days as financially accessible as possible for photographers, videographers, illustrators and content creators of all levels, our entire creative team (including the models, designers, stylists, locations, organisers and Tigz herself) have agreed to be compensated at their non-commercial rates. Therefore, unless otherwise agreed in advance in writing by Tigz Rice, any content created at our Creative Play Days must not be used for commercial gain in any form. In more simple terms, you cannot make a profit from the content you create at our Creative Play Days. This includes selling (licensing, stock imagery, product creation, book inclusion or on content sites) and publicising (press and PR) your content.

So what is allowed? As long as you are not receiving any form of financial gain (which includes gifted products and services in the form of an exchange), you can use any content you create at our Creative Play Days for personal use – including personal social media accounts, websites, blogs, vlogs and both print and digital portfolios. You may also include your images in portfolios for photography qualifications, including Licentiateship, Associateship and Fellowship – and we’d love to know if you pass! In return, all we ask is that the full creative team are credited each and every time, whether it be on a photo, video, BTS content, blog, vlog, Instagram Story, Reel… you get the idea. Share the love! A full list of the creative team will be provided to you on the day.

And what happened if you created something epic at our Creative Play Days and you REALLY want to use it for commercial purposes? Well, we are certainly open to having this discussion with you. Any commercial usage will need to be negotiated and agreed in writing by Tigz Rice as well as the model and the location. Please note that additional fees and/or royalties may apply.
