It is that time of the year again for Sherwood Forest Faire. Sherwood Forest Faire is held yearly, every weekend from March 4th through April 23rd, in McDade, TX. Out of all the renaissance festivals I have been to in Texas I would have to say Sherwood is my favorite. Good people, good food, good music, good fun, and awesome outfits all make for a great trip. From a photographer's perspective I am humbled that I am allowed to capture the characters within my new found friends. To honor the opportunity I try to bring those characters to life. Now for a journey through my photographs I took at Sherwood. All photos can be seen and purchased here.
I started off photographing my archery friends. After the archers cleared out of the arena the knights prepared for the jousting.
The Kings and Princes also decided to join in the knightly fun by having their own competition. King Richards horse was ill so he decided to pay homage to Monty Python. As I headed up to the castle for the Castle Siege there was some great light at the chess board so I snapped a few. So now for the Castle Siege. The story progressed since last year so I didn't know when or where things were going to happen. Although knowing the series of events helps me setup the shots I want, it is more exciting not knowing.
If you have not been I recommend you at least go and check it out. I hope you all enjoyed this journey through my trip to the Sherwood Forest Faire. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think of my work. Cheers!
