Sometimes planning a photo shoot can take weeks, even months. If you’ve ever tried to setup something with a diverse group of people, you understand. But every once in a great while, things just happen. And it did at Wicked Faire. It started simply enough that Tom of Brute Force Leather wanted to do a shoot. Then we picked up some more people and went location scouting, and finally we managed to end up invited to shoot inside the irish pub in the hotelI have to say that the staff of the restaurant was amazing toward us, as we were in the way taking pictures while they were trying to do their job.
These kinds of shoot are often the best. Everything was relatively spontaneous, or at least we were planning it out as the shoot progressed. Ideas get tossed around. “We’re in a bar, we need to do a fight scene!” (Those pics are coming). It also seemed to be a lot of fun for the pub’s patrons. While many where con goers, some definitely weren’t. The table next to us were having a great time and snapping picks of the whole affair.
Lots of stuff goes on at this Tavern apparently. Arm wrestling is common. I’ve heard this gentleman has never been beaten. Or spilled his drink.
Though apparently they still part as good sports.
Arms are sometimes traded
Looks like she needs to pay up.
And of course there is often quite a bit of silliness going around.
Never touch Ev’s stuff without asking first…
This is only part of the shoot. I will be uploading more to flickr over the weekend, and then you can look for part two posted here next week (and maybe part three if I get swamped) when I finish.
