On Sunday, November 2nd, I will be at the Patuxent Research Refuge (10901 Scarlet Tanager Loop, Laurel, MD 20708) from 2:30-5 waiting for garbed/costumed subjects to come my way. Gates to the park close at sunset (a bit after 5). Here's a hypothetical Q&A session I had with myself about it:
Q: Why free?
A: I want more garby styled pictures for my portfolio, and it's also just mad fun. So you must be okay with your photos being shared online by me. If you use my photos online, please give credit.
Q: How will I get my pictures?
A: I will Dropbox them to you a week or two later.
Q: Can I just show up any time?
A: Yes. I'll be there from 2:30-5pm, show up any time between then. If you want to set a specific time, which I recommend, you can do that too. Just let me know- send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be sure to block off a time for you.
Q: How will I find you once I get there?
A: When you come to the parking lot at the end of the road, facing the Visitor's Center, turn left and park in that far corner of the parking lot. I'll be in that vicinity, and will give my phone number to those that I know are coming so you can find me easily.
Q: What if the weather is terrible? A: UPDATED Forecasts for Sunday are sunny and windy, so we should be fine!
Q: Can I bring my awesome weapons? A: Sorry, but no weapons (foam weapons are fine). I don't see a park policy against swords (just firearms), but I do not want to remotely make trouble. If you're got cool-looking weapons you want to pose with, we'll have to set up a different session.
