Urbex and Frill Gelled Lighting Event Derelict Chapel Malvern 2nd March 2024

A full day event (11am-5pm) for photographers in this amazing, unique and distinctive location with three amazing models and some very special gowns and lighting!

Your lighting technician for the day is Chris Conway of Trident Studio. Chris is a full-time professional photographer with his own commercial studio, based in Plymouth. Well known for his high-end gel lighting work, Chris will be bringing his years of expertise and knowledge to bring us a first for my events, a fully gelled lighting event. Combining incredible colours, gowns and this amazing derelict setting, the images taken on this event will be breathtaking!

Lighting and expert assistance will be provided by Chris to make sure you get the best shots. You will be working in a group of four photographers on this event meaning you have plenty of shoot time. Please note this is not a teaching event although Chris is on hand to answer questions and assist you on the day.

Each model will be modelling one full look on the day, a statement ballgown picked to work within the gelled lighting setups. Expect beads, embellishments, tulle and gorgeous fabrics like taffeta and velvet.

There are just twelve photographer spaces (three groups of 4) available on the day so don't delay, book your space on this exciting event. Shooting time will be on a strict 121 timed basis. I’ve deliberately kept group sizes small to ensure a relaxed shoot where everyone has the same opportunity to shoot and work with our models.

Time: 11-5

Cost: £325
Location: Malvern, Worcestershire

What to expect

Lighting gels are a transparent coloured material placed over light sources to create colorful effects. Chris has years of experience in this lighting style. Here are some images taken by Chris. The first two were taken at the location and the other images are examples of his studio gelled lighting work. Chris will be using a variety of different coloured gels over 6 lighting setups on the day to give you a variety of shots.

Our location

Our hired location for the day is a centuries old, derelict chapel. So many beautifully textured interiors within and we will be dressing the space with floral displays and other props. There are toilet facilities at this location. Photos by Paul Harris and Paranormal Hauntings. Please note two of the second set and all the third set of photos were taken when the building was completely abandoned and not looked after. The debris has since been cleaned and is looked after, but has not been restored. 

Our models

Our models are the amazing Amie Boulton, Ashleigh Rae and Xenia. All of these ladies are experienced models with years of experience on these kind of events. They will make sure you get the best out of the day and are happy to pose themselves or be directed by you.
