Steam Punk Big Shoot Papplewick pumping Station

9th October 2018

It really is an adventure WEB

Big Shoot will be doing a steam punk theme in Britain's finest Victorian Water Works and the only one in the  Midlands to be preserved as a complete working water pumping station.

Papplewick Pumping Station was built between 1882 - 1884 to supplement  the water supply for the growing city of Nottingham.In the main building there are two massive beam pumping engines, thought to  be the last built by the famous firm of James Watt & Co. of Soho Works, Birmingham and London.



10.00 - 12.30

Damian dedicates the first section of the day to education. See how an image is conceptualised, the location is scouted and then styled and lit. Watch as Damian employs the tricks and techniques he's used to wow clients for decades.

12.30 - 15.30

It’s now time to put into practice what you have learnt. With the support and encouragement of your peers you will have plenty of personal shoot time within a small working group. Damian and the whole team will be on hand to guide you as and when needed.

15.30 - 16.00

Round up and any final questions.
Whilst we will supply lighting equipment you are welcome to bring along your own kit to practice these techniques with.
