Shooting steampunks again

with 6 comments

Well, I’ve been shooting a lot of things to be honest – film premieres, streetscapes, my super-giant baby cat and… yes, more steampunks… the love affair continues. What can I say? I think I’ve reached some new ground though – it’s not the same-old, same-old… Here are a few of my favourites. They were taken At the Auckland AetherCon – some are vendors, others are friends I dragged out to the hallway for a little different lighting and less jangly backgrounds…

    • Thank you! She was one of my favourite models of the day. Though tbh, steampunks are perfect models as a general rule… They understand the concept of striking a pose…

    • I gotta post some shots from this past weekend! I organised a massive photoshoot – had about 60 photographers, 30-40 steampunks, various performers, friends, odd characters and… event was a total success. And raised quite a bit of money as well… unfortunately as organiser, I didn’t get to do as much photography as I would have liked, but still managed the odd amazing shot if I do say so myself… The costumes were so over the top amazing this time around too. Sigh… I wish I had 96 hours in the day – so much more I could get done!

      • Thank you! It’s been an unexpected and very interesting series of events and I am as surprised as anyone… and having so much fun… Just wish I had enough time to make all the ideas and projects come to fruition! I’m pretty sure I’m also a wee bit crazy… 😉
