I did it! I'm a Ghostbuster! Ooops, wrong thread... ;-)

Post by mistercrowley »

Seems like it was just yesterday; I was dropping one of my prints off at Gallery 7, in Joliet. I walked into the building and right past two people dressed as Stormtroopers. I think I did a very comical double-take and then followed them back out the door to see what was going on. Across the street, by the library, I see just the most amazing sight; dozens of people dressed up in costume. There was Darth Vader, Jango Fett, Scout Troopers, Rebel Pilots and so many others. I couldn't believe my eyes. I went back in to drop off my print and asked the gallery what was going on. They said, "some kind of Star Wars day at the library." I had just finished a portrait shoot that morning so my cameras were in the car so I loaded up the parking meter with all the change I had and went out to photograph the event. Later that day I shared some of the photos on the Joliet Public Library page and that is when you all started tagging each other in the photos and that was when I was first introduced to all the great people behind the masks, many of which I consider great friends today!

A little over 2 and a half years later I am now officially a member of the Midwest Garrison, after one of the most amazing surprises I have ever had, by you guys, at Adler. I am very honored to have joined the ranks of all you fine ladies and gentlemen.

For those of you that don't know me or haven't met me, if you see me at an event (I'm the guy with the camera) don't hesitate to say hi and let me know if you want a specific photo of yourself. I'd be happy to oblige!

Here's some of my favorite shots I've taken over the last couple years: http://www.matthewcrowleyphotography.co ... e/Cosplay/
