The weekend just gone was somewhat manic, though thankfully in a good way. The fun started at 11am on Saturday morning when I arrived at a photoshoot for the Steampunk club White Mischief. The talented Ben Hopper (flickr stream here - warning, NSFW) was shooting some of the patrons to promote the club's forthcoming Hallowe'en ball.
It was lovely to see some familiar faces amongst the models, and meet those I didn't know. Quite the most amazing thing, though, was the space used for the shoot. It was hosted in a delightful, high-ceilinged warehouse conversion which serves as a flat for our kind host. It boasted an almost M.C. Escher-like array of mezzanines, each of which was an open bedroom from which sleepy figures peered out as the models arrived. The place was filled with all manner of wonderful retro and Steampunk artifacts.
Below are some of my best snaps from the morning. I'll post Ben's photos when they arrive.
