About this event

Join us for a morning and early afternoon of photography featuring two models at the excellent venue of Carriages of Cambridge. The event will run from 10.00 until 13.00 hours. The site will be closed to the public on this occasion so we will have exclusive access to the station and grounds.

Our host venue is a railway station constructed completely from scratch with building, platform, signal box and a host of railway ephemera - plus several Pullman coaches which now serve as an excellent restaurant. The platform was dismantled and transported from its original site at Oakham and has been reconstructed at Fen Drayton. The site has three former British Railways coaches now used for dining, including one which was used as part of Lord Mountbatten’s funeral train and named Louis to reflect its history. A number of excellent vintage vehicles are based on site, some of which we expect to include in our event.

This event will take place with a small group of photographers and we will have 2 professional fashion models available for you to capture around the site in a variety of modern and eye catching outfits for fantastic environmental portraiture. Timeline staff will be on hand to offer tips and hold reflectors.

The location is easy to find being just a few miles from Junction 24 of the A14, with ample free parking available on site. As our start location is a restaurant, you might guess that catering will be taken care of, starting with tea and coffee plus hot bacon rolls or similar in the morning before we start. We have chosen a day when the restaurant is closed to the public which should give us all the scope we need for our photography.

This promises to be an interesting and unusual event, and we hope to welcome you to Carriages for an enjoyable morning of photography on Monday 5th September.

*Please note model images are for illustration purposes and exact models will be confirmed nearer to the date.
