BALINGUP MEDIEVAL CARNIVAL

Once a year my adopted home town, Balingup (Pop: 500) is transformed for the weekend and taken over by thousands of Medieval clad fanatics. They come from far and wide… not only from Perth and the surrounding region but also as far away as the east coast. Dressed in full attire whether princess or pauper, monk or maid they really go the whole nine yards.

This year together with Claire Martin, i ran a weekend photography workshop. One aspect of the workshop was a portrait booth / tent set up at the heart of the carnival where students practiced taking portraits. I couldn’t stop myself from jumping in and taking a few shots myself.
