    Hello Everyone,

    I'm hoping some of you seasoned urban explorers may be able to point me in the right direction:

    I'm seeking out an abandoned Asylum / Hospital / Mortuary to photograph. Ideally the location will be abandoned but have some interior features intact (a mortuary table / beds in wards etc - would be amazing). It would be advantageous to know that I would be unlikely to be disturbed for a number of hours/ overnight even better.

    This is for an alternative art project and I have models who are willing to participate - in order to get some interesting and unique pictures.

    I would be happy to have someone experienced escort us (If anyone is kind/ willing and open minded enough).

    Documenting the current state of the location whilst there would be a pleasure.

    We can travel anywhere in the UK but within 3-4 hrs of Hampshire would be ideal. I have scoured the lists of Asylums and Hospitals and although they are very extensive and a lot of information is given - in some cases it is difficult to know whether the current condition of the sites make them accessible.

    If anyone can point me in the right direction - That would be fantastic!

    Many Thanks,

    L, x

    Sorry, we are not here to provide people with locations. (even though we effectively do). This kind of request isn't welcome and wont be answered.

    You are welcome to use my home, it's not too different from an Asylum :D

    All I ask is as you say the - "models who are willing to participate - in order to get some interesting and unique pictures". Less than 4 hours drive from Hampshire, lots of safety brews provided free if that's any help?

    There is plenty available out there trust me. Even a total beginner can find what they are looking for. Exploring is the name so get out and explore. Basically get a name via the big search button or browsing and go for it. If it fails you still learn etc so just have fun. Also posting in right section might help things lol

    Just look through this forum, you'll find plenty. Is it erotic photography? ;o)
    To be honest, the whole 'pretty model in a derelict location' isn't that unique an idea and almost seems to be the standard, especially if its a bit fetishy or the birds have tattoos etc

    There is a bloody list at the top of this page. However none of the derlict places have a mortary slab intact. A trip to St Peters beckons then.

    I was after more of a recommendation - and would have looked up the details myself. But thank you - I didn't realise this wasn't allowed.
    Especially as locations are listed in pretty much every other thread on here in one form or another.
    Perhaps you could advise me on how to proceed 'within the boundaries of the rules'? As you can see, I am new to the site, and may not be familiar with established etiquette.
    Many Thanks,

    Its very alternative (not commercial) and for a fetish artform. The models aren't the standard either. So I'm hoping they will come out a bit more unique than most. I agree with you on the pretty girl / derelict building setups - and that's not what I'm aiming for. I am an artist - not a photographer the pics merely record my work. I'm willing to put in the work to find the ideal place.
