About this event

TimeLine Events are pleased to be running this portrait day at Ropley Station on the authentic Mid Hants Railway. This event will aim to push boundaries of your photography and deliver you a brilliant day of learning. Come with us on a journey back in time where you will be able to capture fantastic photographs of our vintage fashion models and re-enactors, who will be a mix of ladies and gentlemen from the late 50s and early 60s era.


The fantastic backdrops of Ropley station will set the scene, and we will have a loco in steam with carriages at our disposal for the entirety of the evening. Not only will you be able to take images on the platform with the loco, but you will be able to go inside the historic carriages to capture beautiful and authentic portraiture with our own lighting available for you to use. Immerse yourselves into the inspirational surroundings of this wonderful station to create images that jump out and bring you a twist of period fashion meets heritage!
