Photography

We are very much aware that photographers find steampunks very photogenic. The vast majority are respectful and considerate, there always seems to be a few that occasionally fail to follow common courtesy.

Behaviour advices for photographers

Many steampunks love being photographed – but some do not.

  • do ask politely if you can take a picture
  • do explain what the images will be used for and offer contact details
  • respect the individual’s wishes
  • do not order them around just to get the right angle
  • remember steampunks are not paid models
  • « no » means no
  • there are spaces where taking photos is strictly forbidden: toilets and food corners.

Behaviour advices for steampunks

Photographers can take a photograph of you without consent. You have no legal right not to be photographed.

But you can:

  • say “no”
  • ask them politely to see the pictures of you
  • ask them to remove any images you are in
  • ask them their contact details
  • ask what they are planning on doing with the images afterwards
  • the session is over when you say it is. If you become uncomfortable at any time, just tell them.

Remember, that if they are going to be selling the photo, then you are effectively an unpaid model. Once you’ve given your consent, they can pretty much do with it what they like.


Weapons

We recognise that fantastic steampunk weapons are a big part of the steampunk genre and we are always delighted and amazed by the creativity of some people.

But please be aware that even replica weapons can cause alarm in a public place so we grant us the right to ask you to store this weapon(s) in a safe place if it appears to be inappropriate.
