Shooting steampunks again

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?

Until I started working on these photos – the colour palette, the endless bits and pieces and detail, the drama. SuddenlyContinue reading “Trains”
