About This Series
I went to Parkes NSW on Elvis Presley's birthday, January 8, 2011. With a portable studio, I photographed some of the many Elvis impersonators and supporters attending the Country Link Parkes Elvis Festival. I received assistance from Maria Chetcuti, the Parkes Elvis Festival Manager, for which I am very gratetful. The Elvis performers I photographed were very talented within their genre. The Priscillas and Marilyn Monroes were great fun. This series was photographed with my old original Hasselblad, on Tri-X film, with an 80mm Planar lens. The 2011 Priscilla winner found it amusing that I had to actually crank the camera with each frame. The scans are by Shayne Pearce's amazing scanners. These people were true believers. Three of these portraits are of Trophy winners. The others are just having fun.
