A while back I spent the day at Montgomery’s own Old Alabama Town. It’s a couple of blocks of downtown packed with relics from Alabama’s rich history. You can see a real cotton gin, log cabin, general store, pharmacy, church etc.

Along with a handful of extras the reenactors really brought the town to life in a series of photographs for some future advertising. LWT has a yearly project called Createathon where we do work for local non-profits that might not have been able to afford us other-wise. I was real happy when they accepted my proposal to shoot this series for the project.

Below are some of my favorite portraits from the session as well as a behind the scenes video… enjoy!

    Hello Stephen, those are some nice photos. I think old Alabama gets a bad rap, and in some cases that may be valid. It is however, part of our history as a nation so we should accept it and of course appreciate the lessons we learned. I look forward to seeing more of your photos once you get them posted. By the way, your blog came up on twitter which was how I found it so that’s working well for you, nice work.

    Thanks… I didn’t I’m just getting the blog set up and was surprised to see your comment so early.

    You’re right about Old Alabama Town, but it’s a part of our history and we need to learn from it instead of trying to hide it.
