About this event

Join us for this environmental portrait day that will aim to push the boundaries of your photography! What better place to capture themed models than a huge Victorian pump house, full of natural light and beautiful backdrops with access to a new area that we have not been able to use before (Triple Expansion Engine pit). As well as having our own exclusive use of this wonderful venue we will have a dedicated fashion model plus steam punk themed models for you to capture that all work really well in this setting. 

You will also have TLE staff on hand to hold reflectors, lights and offer tips.

The aim of this day is to give you a great portrait photography experience and have you coming home with some great and unique images, expanding your knowledge and giving you the chance to try new things.

What to expect:
A beautiful industrial and ornate venue with a photography opportunity everywhere you turn - with a restored and unrestored area so you have a variety of backdrops.
A professional fashion model who will model in a few different outfits
Professional steam punk themed models
The opportunity to take outstanding portrait imagery
A relaxed and fun environment
Free tea and coffee

Crossness is one of the most impressive and ornate pumping stations in the UK and we will have exclusive access.


Due to this being a restricted site we require your car registration number so that you can have free on site parking and enter through the security gate. Please email this to us after booking or put it next to your name on the booking form when booking. You can arrive by taxi, but the taxi must enter through the security gates and drive you right up to the Crossness museum as you cannot enter on foot.
