Montreal based photographer Benjamin Von Wong was recently asked by medieval costume store Les Artisans D’azure to create a series of promotional images. Benjamin, who evidently got pretty psyched about the assignment, managed to find a medieval looking village, recruit 50 volunteers willing to dress up as orcs and knights, and convince Lozeau photo equipment to provide about 40,000$ worth of Profoto equipment. And all this in just two weeks!
As if that was not enough, Von Wong also managed to film a behind-the-scenes video and write articles about the entire process, including lighting diagrams and insightful tips on how to organize a massive shoot like this on a two week notice. You will find the video and more images below. If you like what you see, we highly recommend that you also check out Benjamin’s website, where he gives a more detailed description of how the images were created. His article on DIY photography regarding the actual organization is also well worth reading.
