Faces of Fright

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.  So when I recently saw a set of images shot inside a haunted house in Canada called the Nightmares Fear Factory I wanted to transplant the idea to a haunted house in the Los Angeles area.  The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor venue has 6 different mazes so after discussing the idea with their admin team I set my gear up inside in a key location.  Wearing all black – right down to gloves and cap – I hid in a dark recess and waited for reactions from the crowd. Many who noticed me had fear in their eyes, half expecting me to bound out from the shadows and scare them.  Happily for them, a deranged pirate was lurking around the next corner, ready to pounce. 

 The following portraits were all made in The Village of the Damned maze which is one of six Dark Harbor mazes at the Queen Mary.  The mazes will be open on Wednesday, Halloween night.
