It’s been ages since I posted anything, so I thought I better put something up here so you don’t think I’ve quit the biz! Here are some of my latest victims.
My specialty – or at least most of my work – is shooting headshots for actors, and my favorite spot is the alley behind the November Theatre (formerly known as The Empire). My first session there wasn’t really a session, but more of an experiment with then 16 year old Chase Kniffen, who is now the Associate Artistic Director. I call it my studio. So do a lot of the folks who work there, and I love that I get to see them going to and from their shows.
I’m thinking about getting t-shirts made with my logo on it that say “I Was Shot in the Alley.” Here are some of my recent victims.
TRAIN is Cadence Theatre Company’s training program for kids ages 12-18. They take classes in acting, singing, dialects, musical theatre, as well as TV and film, all in preparation for getting into the business of performing. Part of this included having professional headshots done. Here are a few:
In case you don’t follow me on Facebook, I was pretty busy last year gearing up to do Gypsy at Virginia Rep. I had the time of my life! I wish I had had the time to blog about it while it was going on, but it was just a whirlwind experience. I hardly even took any photos. However, my Herbie (played deliciously by Chris Hietikko) is also a photographer, and he got this fabulous shot of me from the wings at the end of the show. I really miss him – and it – and everything about it!
Well, my photography business is on a break. If you’re on my books, you’re still good, but I’m not taking any more appointments. I have a couple of projects that I’m working on that are going to require my full attention (more about those later), so I’m going to have to put the headshots on hold. But just for now. I’ll be back at it this time next year!
Until then, here’s a picture of a cute kitten.
