Photography Blog by Duncan Holmes

Studio Shennanigans

Somehow I anaged to find a wee gap in my Spring/Summer schedule and organised a day at Dreghorn Photography's studio in Kinning Park. I decided, for a change, to try something different and put out a call in local steampunk and Cosplay groups to see if anyone fancied a quick half hour shoot and then arranged time slots throughout the day.
 
In the end 11 people signed up for the slots available (I'd left myself a 15 minute break at midday and at the end for packing up).  in the end thought we had a cancellation the night before and 3 cancellations during the course of the day, so my frantic schedule was a lot more relaxed in the end.
 
I've invited along Alice to help out on the day. I'd bumped into her when she was acting in a play with her mother, Claudie Baker Park, a talented actress and singer in her own right. who I'd first bumped into years ago at a Burlesque/Jazz night organised by Eris Events and had subsequently shot with as a model. So anyway, Alice was along and helped handle the to and fro of the visiting "models" as well as taking them through the shots and to pick out their selections for final edits. She also managed to find a moment or three for some behind the scene shots and a few shots with folk in front of the lights as well.
 
We had a varied selection of folk through the day and it was interesting to see the care and attention each person had put into their costumes, personae and poses. We kicked off with an Avatar Aang from the curiously named Last Airbender. Not the movie, the more established anime series.

After the Avatar we had Stephen and Janine. A lovely couple presenting their Steampunk looks. Check out the Glasgow Ubiquitous Steampunk group if you're interested in Victoriana, cogs and goggles!

Still, it gave Alice and I a chance to grab a bite and meant that our next model, Yasmin, was able to kick off a little bit earlier with her shots. This time it was an inspired "human" characterisation of one of the Pokémon creatures. A cute little shoot and a marked change from our earlier subjects.

Somewhere around Yasmin's arrival we also received the hurricane of chat and enthusiasm that was Blake and Grayson who were the next two subjects to step into the fray, with Blake as Kagamine Len from Vocaloid and Grayson as Eren from the ever popular Attack on Titan cosplay. (I finally got the Manga for Attack on Titan and am making headway, though it's been a while since I was in the habit of reading books backwards).

Amy was next from the legend of Korra...

 and then we ended up with Ela in another Steampunk outfit. Ela was a fun end to the day which was a mixture of highs and lows.

Still, back to the real world of events and weddings now. At least with weddings you're reasonably sure that the main "models" will be turning up.
