About this event

An afternoon that will offer plenty of variety when it comes to photographing people in a fascinating and ornate setting. With a professional and modern fashion model, Steam Punk themed characters and vintage 1940's re enactors you will come home with plenty of eye catching images.

Papplewick Pumping Station is one of the best examples of decorative Victorian engineering in the country. The ornate pump house, industrial boiler room and picturesque surrounding grounds offers endless photography opportunities. You will be surrounded by fantastic backdrops from old solid wood doors with brass handles to wonderful decorative ironwork pillars and stained glass windows. What better place to capture beautiful and unique portraiture? Our small group will ensure social distancing and with at least 4 different models we can spread out over the huge site so there will be ample space. Having such a small group will also give the opportunity to set up your own shots and have some one on one time with the models.

We will also be bringing along our own LED lighting for you to use and a smoke machine to create atmosphere inside the pump house! Our session will start at 2pm and run until 5pm. There is plenty of onsite parking and in addition to the main buildings you will be free to explore the grounds and gardens.
