The Artist At Work: A Portrait Session With Veiko

I recently had the opportunity to do a portrait shoot with an artist in his studio.  It was a fun challenge to work in someone else's space and along with the usual portraits it was also an attempt to tell the story of the subject's interests.  There was a lot of fun things, such as the first picture where I had him pose with a self portrait Veiko did of himself some years ago.  Adding some interest is that Veiko grew up in Peru and showed off some of his early artistic influences, ironically enough, American comics, soccer and Peruvian cartoons.  Though his personal work has moved far beyond these influences.  And as a fun bonus he agreed to pose in the kilt.

Promotional Photos for Stage Coach Theatre's Next Production

Last week I was given the opportunity to do some promotional pictures for Stage Coach's next show: Of Grapes And Nuts.  This is a funny spoof that blends together Of Mice And Men and The Grapes Of Wrath. It has a great cast and they were a lot of fun to work with.  The show opens January 11 and you can find out more at

Théâtre sans Limites: Star Wars Abridged, Revisited

I usually wouldn't blog the same kind of event twice but this one was so much fun there's no harm in doing it again.  Plus I can justify it with a last minute cast change and the fact that this time around I was able to capture some of the expressions of delight on the audience's faces.  This performance too place at the Ada County Library to a standing room crowd.  They added a few new jokes to the show and one of everyone's favorite moment was when the narrator yells "Ewok Attack" and the audience throws teddy bears at the actors.  A fun time was had by all and I hope you enjoy the pictures.
