Come with us as we mix Fashion & Beauty with an industrial backdrop, Saturday 11th August 2018

Come with us as we return to the Steam Yard in Andover Hampshire this August for what promises to be a real feast of fashion and beauty. An event that will aim to push boundaries and deliver you a brilliant day of learning, creating images fit for publication. Come with us on a journey that will teach and show you how to get fantastic photographs, using the very unusual backdrop that is an environment that has stood still since the mid 1950's. Produce images fit for any fashion based publication, website or of course club competitions. A perfect mix of hybrow fashion and industrial heritage will ensure you interesting and evocative images.  

Immersing ourselves into the inspirational surroundings of this wonderful location with all it has to offer we will use its historical locations as our backdrop to create images that jump out and bring you a twist of fashion meets heritage. This event is not just for making amazing imagery, we have planned the day for the enthusiast and keen amateur photographer that not only strive to make great pictures but also wishes to further the knowledge of their equipment, approaches and techniques.
