You are welcome to come to the Glenbrook Vintage Railway on Saturday 29th September to mingle with the Auckland steampunk fraternity and photograph them against the backdrop of the GVR steamtrain, the GVR station or their workshops and yards.
Steampunkers go to a huge amount of effort to create their costumes and props and love to have their photos taken and are very happy to try out any creative ideas you may have. By holding this event at Glenbrook, you have the station, operating steam train, carriages and the extensive workshops available that will add additional impact. Two makeup artists on site will ensure the women are looking wonderful!
A feature of the day is the train ride at 1.30 from the station to the workshops and return. Beware: some steampunkers are armed and may attempt a hold up (but they are kind enough to pause for a photo). As a bonus check out the railway workshops and yards which are full of interesting artefacts. This day provides plenty of material for future competitions: Portraits, abandoned, creative and landscape.
APS is sponsoring the day and if you register through the club system, you will be able to come for the discounted entry fee of $30. The event is open to all photographers and entry on the day will be $40.
Please register for this tour on the APS site and to secure your place make a payment of $30 to APS.
