Spartan Warrior Costume: Model Blake R. with Photographer Rahim Mastafa

Introduction

I received a question about the Spartan Warrior costume. While researching this article, I remembered a photo shoot that I loved.

A few years ago, I saw a Facebook post by Rahim Mastafa in which he posted images. The model, Blake, wore a Spartan Warrior costume was a physical education teacher and looked fantastic in the costume. (The costume comes from the movie titled “300” (Warner Brothers, 2007).

Rahim had a photo shoot with Blake, a physical education teacher, in Bath, United Kingdom. Most of the images were at the Roman Baths.

Others were outside or created in an apartment.

Rahim posted some behind-the-scenes video of his Bath photo shoot.

Conclusion

I am glad that I received the question, as I got to review one of my favorite photo shoots. I thank Rahim and Blake for the fantastic images. I even placed Bath, UK, on my travel list (post-pandemic).
