Steampunk Shoot at The Old Mill

Ready for an evening of fun at the Old Mill by the River?  I've been working really hard to arrange several models for us that will be styled in Steampunk attire.  This location will make a perfect back drop for steampunk models!

The term "steampunk" became popular in the 1980's & 1990's.  It is best described as a Victorian/ Industrial style, and incorporates elements of science fiction, fantasy, and adventure. With Halloween approaching I thought this would be a fun photography event. Please just Google the term in order to see more images

This will start at 5:00 but I understand a few people may be late due to work so we will just begin with the session and feel free to jump in when you arrive. We will work until the light no longer allows us!

Early bird special - $20 until this Sunday, October 7th. On the 8th the cost will go up to $30.  This is to encourage early enrollment so that I will know how many to expect.  It makes it much easier to plan for these events when we have some advance notice and these costumes are a bit involved.

Please feel free to bring any steampunk props if you have them. i have created a few myself that I will bring along.

I will be also be bringing a studio strobe and show anyone who wishes to learn how to use it for some neat effects on-location.  You will learn how to balance the sky with the subject using the external light source. I will also share my light and remote trigger in order to allow anyone who wishes to capture images with it to do so.

Please bring your tripod also if you wish to capture some possible HDR shots. This location will be perfect for this as well.

*The models are also promised one to two high resolution image from each photographer (of their choice). You will have the rights to use all the images you capture from the session in your portfolios. These images are to be uploaded to the photos section of Meetup within 2 weeks of the event. Thank you for your cooperation on this.

If you have any questions, please email me.

I will look forward to seeing you ......

      Hi Carson... that is totally up to you! Not sure how you can get it down into the area we will be shooting in though, so it's not neccessary but everyone is always welcome to bring whatever props, etc they like to use!

    My number is[masked]
    Please walk down into the park to the old mill building that sits by the water... I usually wait at the entrance but since people will be arriving at different times I will be down in the park already shooting

    Just a reminder that it's no problem, I know many of you will not be able to make it until 6:00pm. For those of you who can be there at 5:00pm, we will just have more time with the models. I want to get started a little early in order to beat the setting sun. It just gets dark so much earlier at this time of year.
