501ST LEGION- TAMPA BAY GARRISON

Non-Profit Photography in Tampa & St. Petersburg, FL

The Dark Side of Star Wars does good.

In 2014, I met Magnum who was part of a global non-profit orgnaization, the 501st Legion. According to their website, “…The Legion is an all-volunteer organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate. The Legion seeks to promote interest in Star Wars through the building and wearing of quality costumes, and to facilitate the use of these costumes for Star Wars related events as well as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work…”

I’m grateful to be able to capture some of these events the Rebel Legion & 501st attend. I’ll never get tired of seeing the kids AND parents faces lighting up when they see their favorite character come to life. Disney and Lucasfilms should be proud of not only the Universe they have created, but the reality and beauty of what is happening daily through this organization.
