The Catwalk

3-2015 Catwalk

The Catwalk Eastern State Penitentiary

One of my favorite shooting locations for sure, the Historic Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia. The place is loaded with creepy hallways and great shooting possibilities. It normally has some of the most unique lighting as well, so you really can capture some moody and creepy scenes depending on the time of day. The cat was actually an artisan exhibit of the Eastern State Ghost Cats, I believe the exhibit was taken down since this was shot. When the Penitentiary was shut down it was taken over by feral cats, and this exhibit was put up as a remembrance of the past, and also to the man who took care of the cats  known as Dan the Cat Man. They were located all over the massive complex in different places.

 

Thanks for stopping!

One of my favorite locations to shoot, located smack in the middle of a quiet little Philadelphia neighborhood looms this awesome structure. Anyone that has ever had the experience of shooting this place knows that it is a major drain of memory cards, this place is just to cool if you like shooting these types of scenes. For a small charge they let you roam most of the areas with a tripod in hand, if you time your visit right you may even catch a slow period where you don’t have to fight people in every frame. It was a rainy gloomy day on this visit, which was perfect.

Nothing like roaming around a haunted penitentiary with tripod in hand, thanks for stopping!

and Happy New Year!
