Aviation Photo Shoots
When it comes to aviation photo shoots, Lerro Photography has a lot to offer. There are 3 unique experiences of photo shoots that we provide. These include historical reenactment photo shoots, air-to-air photo shoots, and stationary night photo shoots.
Lerro Photography will work directly with the museum staff and airport management to ensure the safety of both the people and the aircraft. We understand the importance of these historical and invaluable aircraft. With years of experience, we have perfected how to manage small and large groups of photographers in addition to our equipment and the people involved.
Aviation Reenactment Photo Shoots
Step back in time with Lerro Photography on one of our historic reenactment photo shoots. As part of our small group of photographers, you don’t just stand to the side; You get to be right in the middle of the action, just like a Hollywood film crew.
During our reenactment photo shoots, we recreate authentic-looking 1940’s scenes utilizing reeanactors, props, vintage vehicles, and aircraft. We take an immense amount of pride to ensure the historical accuracy of every possible detail, from the clothing, equipment, hairstyles and scenery.
Aviation Night Photo Shoots
Lerro Photography is a leader in providing professional state-of-the-art lighting for aviation night photography sessions. We provide the official lighting for airshows such as “Thunder Over Michigan” for the Yankee Air Museum and “WWII Weekend” for the Mid Atlantic Air Museum. Lerro Photography has also sponsored privately funded night photography sessions at the Liberty Aviation Museum, Military Aviation Museum, and the Yankee Air Museum.
We have state-of-the-art LED lights and independent power sources that allow us to shoot anywhere in the airport. Our lights are so bright that the photographers can even shoot video.
The premise of the night photo session is simple: position an aircraft, set a photo line of photographers, light the aircraft with our lights, water down the ground in front of the aircraft for reflection, and then have the pilot start the engine of the aircraft. The engine typically runs for 4-6 minutes so the photographers can move around for different shots in a predetermined area. Once the motor shuts down, the aircraft is towed away and another aircraft is towed into position, then the process repeats itself. Many of our sessions may have as many as 5 or 6 aircraft in a single night. These aircraft include WWII warbirds, helicopters, and even modern fighter planes.
