Portrait Photography - 1960's Fashion at Hadlow Road - Black and white photo of a model wearing a 60's outfit

Portrait Photography – 1960’s Fashion at Hadlow Road

Portrait photography and 1960’s fashion – it’s the perfect photographic combination.  So, charge your camera batteries, pack you camera bag and head to the historic Hadlow Road, Willaston, Neston – because this is going to be the perfect day to learn all about portraiture photography, off camera flash lighting and working with model(s).  Our Welshot Model(s) will be dressed in authentic 1960’s costumes with a wide variety of props and accessories.  From the ‘Swinging Sixties’ to the television series ‘Heartbeat’  – we are convinced that 1960’s fashion was specifically designed and created with the portrait / fashion photographer in mind.

Hadlow Road railway station is a Grade II listed heritage railway station in Willaston, on the Wirral Way footpath. It has been restored to have the look and feel of the day the station was permanently closed to passengers in 1956. It has an authentic ticket office, waiting room and telephone box which we will be sure to use throughout the day.

As well as shooing in the immediate vicinity of the railway station – we will also be making use of the nearby woodlands to capture our Model(s) in camera.
