Hiya,
I am trying to do an army style shoot eg the guns, camo's, etc im sure you get the gist of it and im sure many of you will have done one yourselves, but im finding it almost impossible to find any props, guns etc etc for hire. can anyone guide me in the right direction please or is there any studios with this stuff in? thank you in advance.

Marco

I'd suggest checking if there is an Airsoft group anywhere near you. A young guy I know is a regular at a local Airsoft venue. Most of the members have spent hundreds on their own camo gear and the weapons they use are indistinguishable from the real thing.

Whats your budget?

I've shot a couple of army shoots and we've had everything from camo and netting used as a background to proper period ammo boxes, armoured vehicles, period clothing etc.

There are a few hire places.

You could try contacting Bob on here.

Johnsons of Leeds are a good source of used military equipment in this country.

What is your budget and which period or genre are you interested in?
I may as well do it. I'm gonna get blamed for it anyway.

Google Airsoft in your area, if there is a site they usually have rental guns as well that you can probably sort out a deal with using them and the game site itself. Plus the players I'm sure would offer use of their gun and gear in exchange for some shots of themselves in game.
