I have been attending Live Roleplaying events as a player for almost 20 years. Around 10 years ago I was asked to crew for event called EOS, where I borrowed a friends DSLR to take a few shots and I suddenly found myself hooked on LRP photography.
The next event I crewed as a photographer was a bit of a departure from the classic high fantasy of EOS, it was called Death unto Darkness and was set in the far future. I've now crewed in excess of 150 events and I attend over 40 events per year.
The UK LRP scene is getting bigger and better every year with many new games and a diversity of themes that goes way beyond the Tolkienesque image that is the most common public perception of LRP. I am sucker for events that break new ground or have a unique style and will attempt to attend them all wherever and whenever they are.
I like to stay relatively close to the players at a game as, not only does it allow me to follow the action, it also means that I can notice scenes and moments that are important to the players and their characters. A few years ago a player told me that, in preparation for a Death unto Darkness game, they were able to conjure up the feelings and emotions that they had felt throughout the previous event by viewing my album again.
Everything that I take and upload to social media is free for anyone to use for profile or cover photos and I have no plans to change that.
Your contributions will help pay for my insurance, transport, web hosting and purchases of new cameras, lenses and accessories.
I also have a website that has an integrated shopping cart that allows me to sell digital copies, prints and a variety of gifts. As a thank you for supporting me, all pledge levels come with discount codes for reduced prices from my store.
I will also be doing some occasional codes for each pledge level to snag free stuff from my shop.
