The Royal Families of California
A Collection of Portraits of Members of The Imperial Court System
by Karen Massing
A collection of portraits of various members of the Imperial Court System. The Court System is one of the largest LGBT fundraising organizations in North America, with chapters throughout the US, Canada, and Mexico. The portraits were photographed at various "Coronations" , the yearly event of each chapter where the old reign steps down and welcomes the new reign. Primarily photographed in the San Francisco area during 2008 and 2009.
Long time hobbyist with a pasion for classic portraiture. I love shooting alternative lifestyle events and will most of the time do so for free with exchange of a model release.
