GOTHIC PORTRAIT SHOOT – WHITBY

MISCHKAH

Whitby, the setting for Bram Stokers book Dracula. And for those of you that don’t know,  the Gothic weekend which takes place in October. Such is the popularity of the event, Goths come from all over the world. The appeal has widened to include steampunk and Victoriana and numbers have increased as tourists come to witness and photograph the wonderful outfits that are on display.

It was by sheer luck I bumped into Mischkah, a pofessional model originaly from the Whitby and who iv’e photographed previously. The town offers some great locations for such a shoot, that’s if you know where to go. The secret is to keep away from the hundreds of other photographers who are only to keen to get in on the action. 

Here’s a handful of pictures from the shoot. A huge thanks to Mischkah for the opportunity.
