A unique photo shoot with an amphibious craft and a stunning model is on offer to local snappers


A monster of a photo shoot for local photographers in the offering, as's Laura Kolbusz will be modelling for a very unusual shoot at New Brighton Rock, on the Wirral. This will be a group photography modelling shoot, that will take place on 26 June 2016, with the amazing LARC XV Defiant II.

The amphibious rescue craft has had a few alterations since it was last photographed on Southport Reporter, making it more impressive, if it wasn't already. This unconventional aluminium hulled machine will now be joined by another amazing large military truck. This is's 1st teamed group shoot on this scale and we have to admit; it's looking like it will be quite a hit.

This shoot is a specialized shoot, which has been gaining huge interest from petrolheads, not only due to the craft, but also thanks to the amazing Laura. She will have a good selection of things to be photographed in and holding! Laura is a very experienced model, modelling a wide range of clothing for designers including New Zealand's Lola Fang. So don't miss out such an amazing opportunity!

If you still don't know what the LARC XV Defiant II is, it's a massive amphibious cargo vehicle that was used by the United States Marine Corps (USMC) in the Vietnam War. This is a shoot you can't do with anyone other than though!

The shoot will start at 10:30am and will run until 5:00pm/5:30pm. This shoot is designed to work with people on a tight budget, and is just £80.

This includes going out on the craft to 1 of the 3 islands, at the mouth of the estuary of the River Dee, and if time allows, a small trip down the river Mersey.

To see the machine in action visit this YouTube link.

As this is not your normal shoot, the team will have a few more surprises for the photographers who come on this adventure... This includes FX gear... Basic camera tuition if required and more...

All photographers going can freely use and sell images they take on the shoot. A modelling release will be offered, but whenever possible, Laura must be credited as the model.

Deadline for applying to do the shoot is 22 June 2016.
