The Old Orangefield High School Urbex Engagement: Jaime & Craig
Jamie and Craig first when Jamie was contracted to cover Craig’s classes at Orangefield High School while he was away. They hit it off and as they say the rest is history.
The School therefore of had special meaning to both of them but as it closed in August of 2014, they really wanted to find someway of incorporating it into their engagement shots though. When Craig called Graham to discuss their shoot then mentioned heading to Orangefield Park and getting some shots at the gate and maybe with the school in the back ground which sounded like a good plan.
So the day of the shoot arrived and Graham met Jaime and Craig at the school gates and again they were talking about what a shame it was that they couldn’t get in. Graham his usually jokey self said “but its only trespassing so long as you don’t break anything to get in”. He explained that there are lots of photographers who take photographs at derelict places, it even has a specific term “Urbex” or “urban Exploration” So off they went to see if they could find a way in.
Luckily they managed to find a bit of the fence that was broken enough for them all to squeeze through and they were in! They got some fantastic shots around the grounds and even managed the get a shot outside their old classroom.
