Just finished 3 days shooting at the Bushcraft Show 2013 at Elvaston Castle in Derbyshire. The Bank holiday brought much needed sunshine and the event was very successful and busy. The work load was tough as I was producing video and photography and could have done with the ability to be in two places at once. I will thank Anne though who was a great help throughout the weekend!
The images look great and I am positive the edited film will look just as good. I even managed to eat a live bug at the Bear Grylls stand. Actually tasted pretty good!
The organisers managed to fly a group of Massai dancers over from Africa (who they and a bushcraft school have been working with out in Africa) so they could perform traditional dance. They sold beadwork and there was a charity auction to help raise funds for there village back in Africa. It was a great experience to see them dance and the auction raised several thousand pounds. 6 out of the 7 dancers had never been outside of there native village and I couldn't help but smile to see 7 traditionally dressed Massai dancers stood eating baked potatoes from the spud van, it was good to see and the whole event would have been an amazing experience for them. Great work!
