Georgetown Fair Queen: Fair Week Portraits with 2015 Queen Sierra Dicken and Court

The 2015 Georgetown Fair was one of the best yet, and we can't wait to see what they put on the schedule for next year's fair. 2015 Miss Georgetown Fair Sierra Dicken and her court had a busy week, and on the last day of the fair we found a few minutes to do some pictures with Queen Sierra's fair week convertible sponsored by Toyota of Danville, and we got lucky with a few night pictures in the midway.

As the official photographers of the Georgetown Fair Queen we stay pretty busy in Illinois, and we also get a lot of questions about how we do our fair queen coverage. We plan on posting some behind the scenes stuff for photographers interested in the equipment we use, how we develop our coverage strategies, and stuff like that. In the meantime, here is a quick look at our fair week by the numbers:

1,500 is the approximate number of miles we drove back and forth from Indianapolis to Georgetown. Starting with fair family dinner, we went out six times in ten days. 36 is the number of rechargeable AA batteries we burned through on pageant day. If you happened to notice Joe handling a double flash rig at the pageant, we hope to talk a little more about this and our gear later. 11 is the number of posts we put up about the Georgetown Fair Queen Pageant in the month of August. In these posts we've shared about 100 pictures you won't see anywhere else. 4 is the number of camera bags, on average, that we took with us on each trip the Georgetown Fair.

After a busy week with the Georgetown Fair Queen, we're looking forward to sharing some of our other trips, and we've got some behind the scenes stuff to share with you, too. So keep checking back often and be sure to wave if you see Josh and Joe Travels!
