The images presented with this post are from a recent photo shoot, featuring local improv comedy group – NERDprov. As you might guess, these guys focus their material around topics like Harry Potter, Superheroes and video games. They needed shots for their new site and promo material, and I was honored to come take them.
The photos were shot on location at The Market Theater, home of Unexpected Productions, right behind the gum wall by Seattle’s Pike Place Market. We used the main stage for group shots, and a smaller stage out front for solo portraits. I had a ton of fun. A bunch of comedians is not what you’d call a boring client, plus it’s not every day I get to take pictures of people in costume.
If you get the chance, you should go see NERDprov do their thing (check their site for upcoming shows). Also, if you’re the organizer of a con or other such nerdy event, NERDprov may be just the entertainment you’re looking for. Find more NERDprov on Facebook and Twitter.
More and more, I find myself photographing performers and artists. I have three more shoots lined up this week, and I couldn’t be happier for it. Not only is it fun, it’s also immensely inspiring to be around and watch other artists do their thing. The only downside, if you can call it that, is that they always leave me wanting to try what they’re doing at least once. Though I don’t know if I have the balls to do improv!
If you like my work, I am available for hire.
