The Steampunk Empire

The Crossroads of the Aether

So, where do you like to take photographs of your steamsona at? In the woods, historic town/city, urban jungle perhaps? What about a castle or the historic train station?

Or perhaps there's the Dream Photoshoot that takes place at the airship field...?

Here, you are welcome to talk all about it.

So far, I've only taken photos at home and just outside my door. XD

But I would love to dress up with friends and go out to the mountains or wooded area for photo-ops.

Also, I've been working on a movie script for a steampunk inspired film which should procure very interesting images =^-^=

Why Thank you sir.

And yeah, Shingle Springs is pretty far away XD

I think a brickwall would also make a fantastic backdrop. Now only to find one..

I've been toying with the idea of dragging a 9x7 foot backdrop frame, various backdrops, and studio lights to cons/fairs and getting a big hotel room, and offering photography. 

My lovely wife. Thanks!

You have a good figure Wally lol


I must say, your character reminds me of Snidely Whiplash XD

I am blessed with amazing locations in the New York-New Jersey area. Much industrial history is here. Iron mines, Edison’s Lab, Speedwell (a farm where the telegraph was developed), static and operating water wheels, A 19th Century museum village. Farther East I have Mark Twain’s house in Hartford, CT. Further East I have a steam historical society. Check out my page on the Empire.


Check out your local historical societies as you are also in a hot bed of Victorian development. You have a spectacular state rail road museum to the west in Sacramento. East of you are mining towns (Placerville) and logging towns (Camino).


The trick with museums and photography is to politely ask permission, preferably in advance of your arrival. Becoming a member of the museum also can give you some leverage. Check out their policies on their web-site first.


Good shooting and post results

Ah yes, my local museums! Honestly I had forgotten all about them XD

So far it's only been in my home studio. I have a desire to do some at the PRR museum this spring, though. Lots of classic high iron there that fits the "backdrop requirement" but isn't too busy to detract from the main subject of the photo.
