First Star...

... Last night I shot pictures for First Star, a children's rights advocacy Charity group in DC.  Having now shot two events for them, I am pretty confident this is an organization that really cares about abused children and children's legal rights overall - and I am really pleased they chose me to shoot for them.  

Funny thing about Corporate Style Event photography....

1.  It is hard to transition into event photography when at heart you really want to shoot in a more photojournalistic or artistic style.

2.  Make sure there is no artistic/historic NUDE paintings on the wall behind VIPs you are trying to capture with your camera.  Nipples above the heads of the Board of Directors and Honorees for a Children's Rights group are probably not what they want for marketing/media purposes.

"The Way of the World" performed at Theatre Lab...

... some select shots from the dress rehearsal of "The Way of the World" which will be performed this weekend at Theatre Lab School of the Dramatic Arts in DC.  A restoration comedy with a great cast and set.  What really nailed it for me were the costumes - very visually appealing!

Theater work...

... i will be busy this month with some kids theater work which i will advertise later.   Kids theater is intriguing for me to watch on two levels... there is some grade-school nostalgia there for me... and as an adult, my hat is off to those who run such shows and programs for their "herding cats" abilities.

Miraculous patience indeed!

Deadlands 2: Trapped (3d Movie Shoot)

... 3d time i shot digital stills for Gary Ugarek, writer and director of Deadlands 2: Trapped in Fredericksburg, VA.  Click the title of this post to see the entire set on Flickr.  Google it or search on IMDb.

Deadlands 2: Trapped official site:

Shooting movie stills is difficult as you can't exactly use a flash while they are filming and you can't click away while they are filming sound.  High ISO is the norm here.  Click on the title of the post to visit the Flickr to see all the shots.
