Copyright 2010, Stopped Motion Photography. www.stopped-motion.comLast weekend was SteamCon 2, a gathering of steampunk affectionados who on the whole are a lovely collections of nerds, geeks, and other assorted cool people. Really, this is genre in fandom with a flair for Science! (Note the capital S and the exclamation point.) While steampunks come in many different shapes, sizes, and ages--my youngest counts herself amongst their numbers--they all share the same sense of the visually amazing. Let me show you one such cool person.

She goes by the moniker Cherries Jubilee amongst the local Steamrats and even does dance classes with a distinctly steampunk flare to it. What's not to like? Perhaps if you're Agatha Heterodyne and you're trying to stay out of the way of Madame von Pinn you may not care for her. Now when Cherries came to me asked for a quick photoshoot to capture the von Pinn inspired costume how could I say no? Besides, silly ideas to present themselves from time to time. What could be sillier than a construct like von Pinn contemplating the day with a glass of wine? [more]

Photos from the Fashion Show are finished! Last year, it took me a couple of weeks to get through. Understandably, I'm rather happy about this. I shot close to 350 and photos 226 photos made it into the final gallery.

The SteamCon Fashion Show

I just finished up a weekend at the 2nd Annual SteamCon, a steampunk exposition of the amazing! Amazing was a good word for it. For the most part, I spent my time in the photo salon photographing dashing men, beautiful heroines, innocent babess, and a fantastic mechanical universal tracker! M.U.T. was very impressive!

I had the oppurtunity to shoot the fashion show for SteamCon again and this year, I was able to make some additions to lighting arrangements. I am very pleased with the results, but don't take my word for it. Here are a few images from the hundreds I shot.


Keep an eye out on the gallery for all of the photos as they come online.

Into the Weird Weird West of Fashion!

Last October, I shot photos of the SteamCon Tea and Couture Fashion Show. I had a lot of fun taking the photos. You can view all of the photos here.

A couple of weeks ago, I was approached by the coordinator of the SteamCon 2 fashion show asking if I'd be interested in doing it all over again. It would be an understated to say I agreed to do it again. No, this year, I have ideas on how to improve the lighting and get even better shots than some of the awesome ones below. To celebrate this occassion, here are some photo's from last year's fasion show, Tea and Couture.


SteamCon this year will be November 19th to the 21st at the SeaTac Marriot and Hilton. For more information, check our the official website at
