My long awaited Steampunk fashion shoot is here at least, shot on set in front of (and on top of, and next to, and inside of) historical steam locomotives. I had the pleasure of working with the incredibly beautiful (and sweet) *MeganCoffey, the first model I've ever contacted on DA to collaborate with. Thanks to, Karen von Oppen's beautiful Steampunk designs, this shoot really came alive.

As for some cool news, you'll forever be able to see a piece of this shoot in Google Maps, because Google was on set photographing the railroad for a Google Maps 360 Tour of the place, and asked if they could photograph one of my models (~WingedInfinity) to be used in the tour! That's one way to get published!

As always, comments and feedback are always greatly appreciated. This is my first full-scale production with a fashion designer's wardrobe, multiple models, a make up and hair stylist, an assistant, and a licensed set.

Expect plenty more updates from this shoot!

This three pictures are really beautiful, separately but also together. Every one of them has its own personality that fits with the clothes and accesories.
The first one looks more masculine and in this aspect it´s really original, the violet haircolor let the whole picture look transcendental, specially with the smoke in the background. I think the pose might be a little to stiff.
The second one is more classical, but it has a really strong steampunk feeling. The white shirt attract the attention and brings out the beautiful corset. I really love the expression of her eyes. The make-up is fantastic!
The last one is my favorite. She´s more delicate and the pose is very refined. The corset is gorgeous and her hairstyle is very interesting.

A like the harmony between the three pictures: same backgrounds, same colors, the smoke... I also noticed that the poses are well coordinated: the first one turn to the left. The second one to the camera in front of her. The last one to the right.

But for the impact I think it would be better to have each picture separated from the others.
But appart from that it´s a fantastic fashion shoot !
What do you think?

With each one of these shots you've managed to create a steampunk story. So effortlessly, just like that :) Lovely models, best setting possible and it's like I'm left hanging wanting more :) Would love to know the story of each steampunk heroine...
Which one is a detective, which one a mercenary, which one a scientist... LOVE IT!

I like how it is all Steampunk Vogue. That's a very interesting tweak to the idea.

Very cool! I love the outfits and how they show different characters. One thought is that you might make more use of your backgrounds (perhaps you did in other shots?). Train sets are epic and hard to get into so many people Photoshop blurry ones into backgrounds. Since you've got the real thing, you can do so much more with models climbing on it and such.

So beautiful ladies... captures very well. The light is good, the background fits and is blurred just right.

These teaser photos look very interesting, can't wait to see more. :)
Good to see you also got to use the smoke machine a bit. (I guess that's where the smoke comes from?)

Miki looks fantastic as always and it's cool to see some fresh new faces, I think Ashley has very interesting look and I am particularly captivated by Megan's gaze here. :)
At first I thought that the highlights in their faces were a bit too bright, but when zooming in slightly I can see that it isn't that much of an issue after all - I don't think you've lost any details in the highlights.

Very cool that Google was at the location, certainly do post a link when it's available. :)
Where was the location, and where can I find it on Google Maps, btw?

Thank you, Thomas!
And, yes! We couldn't get it work on my battery packs, due to the voltage the machine requires. Fortunately there was a vending machine we were able to leech off of (with a 50 foot extension chord), that made it possible for us to get the fog machine to the trains.

All of the girls were great, and I was really glad to work with some new models. Megan has such an incredible look and demeanor, so I'll definitely be collaborating with her in the future.

Some of the lighting was a bit hot at times, but I managed to keep it so it didn't blow everything out.

It was so cool and random, haha. They were taking stills for their 360 tours on Google Maps (not where when it's going to be up), but it'll be for the Gold Coast Railroad Museum in Miami. But, when I was photographing Miki, they asked if they could include her in the shot, and asked if she was brave enough to climb on top of the train (which we weren't allowed to do, but apparently because Google wanted it, the station was cool with it), and that was that.

It was really a blast, and I learned a lot I can apply to large productions like it in the future.
