Welcome to Renaissance Faire Pictorial blog. Renaissance Faire pictorial.com is about to enter its tenth season. The site began as a project to learn photography and web design. I had been attending festivals since 1994 but the October 2000 was the first time I took a camera. I traveled to the Alabama Renaissance Festival with an acting troupe with the intent to capture the Chess match on film. That trip was the start of renaissance faire pictorial.
Early on I just took pictures of my friends and acts I liked. But soon decided to try capture the personality of the faire itself. Every faire is different and I wanted to show what make each faire special.
As part of this blog I plan on doing summaries of each year, a review of each faire I attended that year and what I was doing with the site. I will also do Then and Now images to show how place and people have changed.
