About this event

After the sun has set we will be creating eye catching and dramatic scenes after dark! We will have a host of Victorian re-enactors including gentry and workmen who will be spread out around the site ready to create historic and unique imagery. We will also have a fashion model in a special light up costume plus a light painting stick to add in another element of photography opportunities! With the use of our smoke machines and lighting this promises to be a unique photography experience that will push the boundaries of your creativity. Amongst the arches and machinery of this huge venue you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to photography opportunities. Capture our historic re-enactors and models and see the Victorian ironwork gleam under the lights!

Crossness is probably one of the best examples of decorative Victorian engineering there is, and a large number of volunteers take part in restoration projects to help keep this venue alive and looking its best. We will have access to the restored and unrestored areas, so there will be a variety of colourful polished backdrops as well as more derelict areas, both offering fantastic photography opportunities.

Hot drinks are included and available throughout the event.

We require you to bring your own torch as some areas will be quite dark and dont forget your tripods. Due to this being a restricted site we require your car registration number so that you can have free on site parking. Please email this to us after booking to info@timelineevents.org.

We also have a portrait training day happening during the day at Crossness, and if you attend this you get £30 off the night shoot: Book both events HERE
