At the invitation of the organiser of the Steampunk Yule Ball 2014, Fey Pink of The Mysterious Freakshow, I was once again the official photographer for the South West’s premier Steampunk event. Taking photographs of the bands and performers, as well as the many fabulous people who showed up in their Victorian finery, I had a busy evening – up and down the stairs between venues and making my rounds finding interesting photos to take.
Above you’ll see some of my favourite photographs from that night. I tried very hard to get it down to 10, but by the time I’d selected my favourite photographs of the performers, I was already at nine and there were so many photographs of the interesting people who attended the ball, that I just had to keep selecting.
If you were to ask me what single photograph of that night I would choose for my desert island photographs, it would be the guitarist from Birthrite doing a sound check on his guitar on a blue-lit stage.
Many thanks to all of the great performers that night who made it a memorable evening:
- Lord Montague Jacques Fromage
- The Steam Queen
- DJ Practically Perfect
- DJ Louie-Louie
- BB BlackDog
- Miss Von Trapp
- The Wattingers
- The Mysterious Freakshow
- Professor Elemental
