Photograph taken by Steve Bailey 2016
In March last year I was given my camera for my birthday, with a soft case and a spare battery, to replace the ageing one my OH had taken away to university and which I had abused during the recent years at LARP. I love seeing the photos taken by the serious photographers at various LARP events and whilst I am not as practised or as skilled as they are at getting the beautiful portraits and depth of feeling during battles, I am trying. It is my hope that I will be able to continue to practise my photography and find the stories within the photos that so many people seem to enjoy.
Here are my favourite photos from the last twelve months.
