Model Access: Steampunk Photoshoot

Steampunk Photoshoot!


We realize it is hard for many photographers to come up with professional models, props, backgrounds, costumes, hair and makeup, and professional lighting equipment.  This is why we had the idea to provide all of this for you in one package at an affordable price!

Precision Camera is teaming up with St. Elmo Soundstage, Hair and Makeup artist Allison Lowery, and photographer Tim Babiak to bring you this exciting themed photoshoot… Steampunk!  For this shoot we will stage it, light it, and let you shoot it!  This is not an instructional seminar, instead we will be allowing you the entire time to shoot and add great images to your portfolio.  We will however, have professional photographers on hand to help you with your camera and settings.  Lighting will be provided, must provide your own camera/lenses.

What is Steampunk?

Don't worry, you're not the only one who might not know what "Steampunk" is.  Envision a combination of science fiction, steam powered machinery, the Victorian era, with a little bit of the American west… and then put it in a futuristic setting!  All that is a recipe for some amazing photos!  Read more about it on the Wikipedia Page.

About Allison Lowery:

Styling for the models will be provided by local wig and makeup stylist Allison Lowery. Allison earned a MFA from the UNC School of Arts in Design & Technology of Wigs and Makeup. Today, Allison serves as Wigs and Makeup Specialist at the University of Austin Performing Arts Center where she serves as an instructor. Allison has published two books. The first book, "Wig Making and Styling: A Complete Guide for Theatre & Film" was released in 2010. Her second book, "Historical Wig Styling Set: Historical Wig Styling: Ancient Egypt to the 1830s" was just released in April of this year.

About Tim Babiak:

Tim Babiak’s entry into digital photography was typical – he simply wanted better pictures of his kids playing soccer.  When he purchased his first digital SLR, he was hooked.  Before long, he was reading everything about photography he could get his hands on and shooting everything and anyone who would let him. Before long, Tim's images were winning awards and appearing on magazine covers and billboards.  Wanting to share his knowledge of shooting people, Tim has taught hundreds of people locally as well as internationally various aspects of photography and post-production. People who attend Tim's workshops discover his passion for photographing people as well as his desire to help everyone become a better photographer.

    Loved the styling and makeup and models. Staff was wonderful, as were the sets and lighting.

    Shooter rotation and discipline was out of control - grouping experience shooters together in 1 group may help some with that. Please note this is a major issue.

    Facilities need greater amounts of air conditioning and humors control - it was seriously uncomfortable (and the models were melting). Beverages and seating too.

      Other comments would make would be around the constant light setups. First off they were very green (this shows more in the raw files than the jpegs, and it's annoying to have to correct). The other thing constant lights do is encourage others to shoot next to and around you. Which is distracting to the shooter and the model, and also a bit rude since really it's stealing someone else's shot direction and creativity. With strobes that doesn't happen as much because the light is trigger by one person... Constant light has no such restriction. I think it makes the problem of shooter discipline much worse then we've previously seen in group settings.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
