We filled up maybe next year we can do it again.
Do not send payment unless you have contacted William or Linda first.

All updates and information about the ESP shoot can be found on this website.

William Kious and I would like to hold a group shoot at Eastern State Penitentiary, Philidelphia PA March 7th 2009 from 10am to 6pm. 

Read the website for all details and updates. 

It is really haunted day and night...

There is $35 entry fee per person (to be paid in advance/nonrefundable) with food and drink available.
Please message me if interested.

Respnose from ESP about is and what is not allowed

Your rental is from 10 am to 6 pm.  You cannot arrive earlier than 10 am to set up.  The Center is part of the tour route so you cannot stage from that area.  When you arrive, our Site manager can help you find an appropriate location to stage from.

Nudity is not allowed.  Lingerie is fine.  We’ve never had the body paint question before, but if the model is nude it would be prohibited.

Regarding the spaces that will be available.  I stated on the phone that in the Winter we are only open for guided tours, which means that the public does not have access to many of the spaces they normally would have access to during the regular season.  I apologize if I was unclear, but it would be impossible to offer any group “free rain of the place.”  ESP is a ruin.  Many areas are unsafe and we are not licensed to bring visitors into these spaces.  In your phone message you mentioned the Chapel and hospital.  Both of these spaces are unstable and not accessible to visitors at anytime.  Your group will have access to cellblocks and outdoor spaces not on the tour route.  Some of these cellblocks are open during our regular season.  Some are not.

I posted on the last thread, but I'll check in here as well.  This would definitely be cool.  I can offer a carpool seat from Baltimore too if anyone's interested.

If you can confirm a date, I will try and add it to my schedule and bring some of the Sinful Girls.

Also, if you need anyone local to handle anything, I live a stones throw away from it.

Wish you luck with it - when I lived in Philly I used to run a shoot at ESP each year. Great place, but freaking cold, and difficult to get power.

I've shot around there once.  Pretty cool location for a group shoot if you can work it out with the Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site, Inc.

I called and left a message with ESP yesterday and I will email them today.  I am trying to find out what the noncommercial rental fee would be.

The entry fee for everyone (Photographers, Assistance, MUAs and Models) would cover the rental cost for the use of ESP and food and drink for the day.
