I've been wanting to do a personal project, ever since I've been going to festivals.
I've been wanting to do proper festival portraits of the festie folk, and with great help and permission
from Bestival and Rhythm Tree Festival, its been a great fun project to see grow to reality.
I was lucky enough to be given a Press Pass for both this year, and Bestival in 2014
To me, its the people of any festival that makes it such a great place to be.
The fancy dress themes people do is different each year.

The following blog is just a small selection of what I had the pleasure of shooting.
To do this I have a unique set up, this helps me take the style I like, but also gets
me noticed, so people ask me to do their portraits...
The Interfit Pro-Flash unit is attached to my back, so its flashing
over my head as a proper studio unit.
I also dress up....this helps with relaxing everyone...and I like dressing up..haha
What follows are a small selection from the two Bestival's and this years Rhythm Tree.
The Bestival is famous for its Mardi Gras Carnival, and this years' was spectacular.
