Malahat Marauders Black Powder Rendezvous

Some photos I shot for The Globe and Mail about Early Canadian historical enthusiasts who stepped back in time to the annual Black Powder Malahat Marauders Rendezvous at the Victoria Fish and Game Protective Association in Malahat, B.C., on Vancouver Island. The three-day event captures what life was like in the 1800’s when people lived off the land. Using black powder firearms they fended for themselves and used survival skills to get by. With nicknames like Fire Fox, Bear Woman and Lil’ Red, enthusiasts dressed in custom made period costumes and took advantage of the weekend to catch up, tell stories and share their love for the black powder rifle, pistol and mini-cannon.
