I’m obviously behind schedule.  The good news is, I have a nice backlog of photos to post.  The bad news, I suppose, is the work was mostly shot months ago. Perhaps the self-directed pressure to publish “current” photography is unwarranted.

Carolina Renaissance Festival Pt I, 3 pics

Last weekend I was able to attend the Carolina Renaissance Festival in Huntersville, NC, just north of Charlotte.   My intent was to capture both cast and visitors who represent the festival artistry and sub-culture.  There were multiple venues of interest and entertainment, both on and off the stage. What a crowd!  There had to be 4 or 5 thousand attendees that day.

I found the many offstage vignettes, or opportunities to engage more directly with cast and visitors, just as special as the larger audience performances (e.g. the jousting knights on horseback). In this series, I’ll feature compositions from both experiences.

Thanks for visiting! I hope you enjoy these images as much as I did producing them.  Click on an image to see a higher resolution version from my portfolio site.
