For me, the Upstate of South Carolina can be a magical place full of history and mystery. Never has that magic come to life as it did several months ago. I had taken my kids to Poinsett Bridge for a day of hiking and I spotted a group of men dressed in medieval costumes. They appeared to be acting out a scene from “Lord of the Rings”. I stood there for several minutes trying to figure out what this was all about, then I spotted the photographer.
My curiosity took over and I introduced myself. The group of costumed men were with the Fell and Fair Production Company based right here in the Upstate. They had commissioned New York photographer, Nicolas Bruno, to do a series of photo shoots for their company, and Mr. Bruno graciously agreed to answer my questions for this story.
