NIGHT AT THE TANK MUSEUM

Published: 07 September 2020

The Tank Museum and Threshold.aero are teaming up to bring enthusiasts a truly unique tank photography experience on 17 September.

With the evenings drawing in, ticket holders will have exclusive close-up access to a range of tanks in The Tank Museum’s arena: all lit by Threshold’s LED lights.

The tanks on display will span a century of armoured history – from the First World War Mark IV replica, all the way through to Challenger 1.

With no visitors to get in the way, ticket holders can take advantage of Threshold’s crisp white 5000K LED lights – which reduce glare and minimise shadows to get the perfect shot!

Threshold was launched in 2017 by aviation photography enthusiasts Andrew Morley and Paul Varcoe, who wanted to provide a truly unique photography experience to fellow aficionados.

Paul Varcoe: “Our number one mission has been to provide something enthusiasts usually can’t get, while supporting operators and owners by raising money for their charities and trusts.

“We thought it would be a great idea to recreate our aviation photography events with military vehicles. What better place to start than The Tank Museum at Bovington!

Night photography brings out the skill in a photographer – “It will be fascinating to see how some of the most famous tanks in history look, lit by our lights and pictured by some great photographers” Paul Added.

He went on to say: “We can’t wait to work with The Tank Museum, and raise some valuable funds at the same time.”

All tanks will be well spaced to guarantee visitor safety and this will also provide plenty of room to get some great shots!
