My photographs are not always technically correct, I tend to break the rules but I do that knowing what the rules are and having a reason to do so. My photographic images are what and how I see the world around me in my minds eye—they are who I am.

    well done. cheers rick

  • Thanks Rick, I’ve been photographing these reenactments for a couple of years now but this was the first event that I took part in as a reenactor/living historian. Lots of research into history yet to do but very enjoyable discussing what I do know with the people that come to watch our events. Lots of great images to capture.

    Well done, great timing and framing.

  • Thanks Paul, the framing was consciously done the timeing was pure luck (and a lot of tries).
