Steampunk Anniversary Giveaway, April 16th – Massive picture giveaway!

Ruud De Korte for Space Machine Imagery
La Dutchessa by Ruud De Korte

Kicking off the second half of our month long giveaway is a sensational gift from Dutch fantasy photographer Ruud De Korte. His photography company Space Machine Imagery is responsible for some of the most iconic European steampunk and fantasy photographs around. He’s a familiar face on the alternative culture scenes and a regular at events such as Castlefest. Most recently he documented the travels of a Dutch airship with atmospheric, moody images and interesting video.

I first met Ruud in 2014 at Steampunk Doncaster – a now defunct steampunk event effort. He had travelled over there with Airship: The Peregrine which consists of Emma McMurphy, Joshua Abernatty Lloydd and of course steampunk/dieselpunk sweetheart Captain Constance Bashford. Ruud was giving workshops on steampunk photography. I managed to learn a lot from him in those few moments.

We’ve also interviewed him at the Journal, covered his documentary about Airship: The Aviator and generally been enthused at his support for the culture.

“I don’t shoot good photos, I make them. Create them.”

What do you get today?

You will have noticed over the past week that part of the giveaway has included an image download from Ruud. Well that’s because he has donated seven – yes, SEVEN – of his photographs! Now after seven days of giving away single images, the winner today will receive ALL SEVEN images. These are high resolution images that you are free to download from Ruud’s website. The winner will receive an email with the download link and password to gain access to the images.


The items up for grabs on 16th April is a full set of seven high resolution images from Space Machine Imagery.

We would like to extend our thanks to Ruud De Korte for donating his wonderful talents and prizes for the Steampunk Journal Steampunk Giveaway!

Make sure you watch the Facebook page for the winner being announced!
