Over 22 Sea­sons— We’ve cap­tured a lot of shows!

We love theatre.

Get­ting the script to read just sets my imag­i­na­tion fly­ing— what will the set and cos­tum­ing look like, who will be cast, will the key moment hap­pen in a flash on a dark stage (thanks for that trau­ma Amadeus!)? As I’m read­ing the play, I hear the char­ac­ters in my favorite actor’s voic­es, and some­times it ends up that they are actu­al­ly the ones cast in the roles (Like my friend Skip Greer in Music Man).

How we work.

We’re usu­al­ly hired to shoot a live final dress rehearsal. At times we do some point to points, and at time actors do freezes for us (usu­al­ly that’s more a col­lege cast). We quick­ly edit those down and sup­ply the the­ater with around 100 images in about a day for their ads, reviews, and PR. Since we sup­ply so many pho­tos with approval for reuse, our PR con­tacts and their teams keep a stead stream of images on social media.

What’s it like on a pro­fes­sion­al the­atre pho­to shoot? A lot more goes into pro­mot­ing a the­atre show than you might guess. For My Fair Lady at Play­Mak­ers in Chapel Hill NC, we often do pho­to shoots sev­er­al weeks before the final dress rehearsal to have some great…

DPAC Hamilton Timelapse

DPAC Hamilton Timelapse

DPAC want­ed some­thing extra-cool to show off the excite­ment of announc­ing the Hamil­ton tour. So we planned with them and over a peri­od of two days pho­tographed a time-lapse of the ban­ner going up. Every 20 sec­onds dur­ing the work a pho­to was snapped from the near­by…

PlayMakers’ Measure for Measure at the Library

PlayMakers’ Measure for Measure at the Library

It’s always fun to pho­to­graph Shake­speare per­for­mances, but dou­bly so when it’s a new, cool, pub­lic pro­gram like Mobile Shake­speare. Imag­ine a packed meet­ing room at the library, that mag­i­cal­ly becomes a the­atre in-the-round stage. It was awe­some to see fam­i­lies,…
