Catching up with Iman Lizarazu

Check out Iman Lizarazu's finished website ~ it's beautiful!

See it at Iman Lizarazu

Earlier this year we showed some images from our photo session with Iman. And now we can show you how the photographs are being used.

Sometimes we create a large collection of photos for a client so that they have a variety of images to use over several web pages. It makes the website even more personal, and if you're in a relationship-based business (like real estate) the more connection you make with potential clients, the more they seem to know you and are likely to call.

Our "Portfolio Photo Packages" are very reasonably priced, and we're very happy to work with both your branding consultant and your web designer to get the images you need. Contact us for more information.

Thanks!
Kim and John

 

Seattle Vice Preview

Hot new play coming to the ACT - Seattle Vice

It is always great to be greeted with an email in our in box that says something like this, "Hey John,  We're gearing up for a sexy photoshoot for Seattle Vice, are you available Monday..." Especially when it is from someone like Mark Siano who has produced some really wonderful shows with fun photo sessions (such as  The Habit in space suits  and  White Hot ).    Mark isn't ready to release all of the publicity photos yet, but he has allowed a sneak peak of the setup for one of the images (seen above). Be sure to check back in February for more photos. You can find out more about the Seattle Vice show on  their Facebook page .    Thanks! John

This week in the studio: Sara Sparrow

Seattle Performance and Headshot Photography

Well, the studio has been so busy that we got behind on blogging, so this should rightfully be called Last Month in the Studio. Sara asked us to help with some new publicity photos. She has a new studio and teaching facility called The Aviary in Olympia, as well as continuing to do fantastic ensemble and solo performances around the Sound.

We met Sara years ago as a quirky, fun-loving waitress with a great hair style in a local Italian restaurant when she was truly new to the circus community. As we got to know her we talked about the Moisture Festival and SANCA. Soon, she was doing aerial work with the Aerialistas and developing her solo work (which she has since performed in the Moisture Festival). She was also performing some comical acro-balancing with fellow artist Graeme Quinn, which was our first opportunity to do studio photos with her. In the more recent years, she has collaborated with the innovative aerial groups Richochet and Levity, as well as performing with Teatro ZinZanni in Seattle. She is equally talented at both comic, physical pieces and beautifully performed aerial work. She is also an actor and singer. And a musician. Visit her website at misssparrow.com.

Then contact John or Kim to set up your next photo session. We would love to collaborate with you!

This week in the studio: Iman

The quietest characters speak the loudest

The Moisture Festival in Seattle brings together many great performers from around the world. One of my favorites has been Iman Lizarazu. Originally from the Basque region of France, Iman now lives in Santa Cruz, CA. I was lucky enough for both of us to have a few free minutes to spend together in the studio working on images for her web site.

Iman is a mime. A clown. A juggler. A dancer. An astrophysicist. An entrepreneur.  She has spent time on the Russian navy. She worked out with the Bolshoi Ballet (her father was the artistic director). She makes people smile. She makes people laugh. She is also a visual artist, creating mixed-media pieces. She hardly says a word (in her act, in person she is a great conversationalist with a fun accent).

I admire brevity of words, so I'll stop talking and show some photographs:

Cafe Nordo Goes Western

It is that time of year again. I got an email from Erin Brindley and Terry Podgorski about creating new photos for Café Nordo. These are always fun, but often challenging sessions. I almost never know quite what I'm getting into until I show up on set for these photo sessions. But, did I mention fun?

This time the concept handed to me was "spaghetti western," and we set a date. The location selected was a favorite, the Georgetown Ballroom. Many people know the ballroom for events, shows, and parties. Few may also know that Jerry has a great storehouse of odd and ends that we call props. Need bottles? Barrels? A roadster car? Some musical instruments? Animal skulls? Taxidermy? Who knows what else. An amazing archive.

But back to the photos...

K.D. Schill provided the great costuming for Nordo regulars Max Davis, Opal Peachy, Mark Siano, Ray Tagavilla, and Evan Mosher. Ryan Higgins is the new addition. Tickets go on sale April 2 and the show opens in May in Seattle's Pioneer Square neighborhood.

Now its back to the Moisture Festival. That will keep me busy for another two weeks. Stop me to say Hi if you see me at a show.

SANCA's Up With A Twist

Yes, You Can Fly!

Seattle is home to one of the greatest little schools I’ve ever heard of. SANCA  is the School of Acobatics & New Circus Arts. Founded by Jo Montgomery and Chuck Johnson in 2003, SANCA offers classes that teach fun. Along with the fun you learn confidence, you learn performance, you grow in many ways. But the only pressure is to have fun. You can get a better understanding than I can describe from this video:

Each year they hold a fundraiser at the Teatro Zinzanni tent called Up With a Twist and I’m lucky enough to be the photographer for these events. They raised over $120,000 this year! These gifts and contributions will directly support SANCA’s programs for youth, including providing need-based scholarships to low-income youth, working with at-risk youth in their Circus Outreach Program, working for youth with special needs, and the  Youth Performance Program.

Check out SANCA for yourself and learn to fly like Kim did!

You can find photographs from various SANCA events and shows in my galleries.

Thanks for taking a look!

Musician's Association of Seattle

A Wall of Woodwinds!

The Musicians Association of Seattle recently partnered with us to provide headshot photo sessions for their members and also a day in the studio so that we could capture a collection of photos that they can use in their newsletter throughout the year. One request was that we photograph two ensembles: a Celtic trio and a woodwind duo. What incredibly interesting musicians! For the studio session they brought an eclectic collection of instruments including a Chinese stringed instruments and gorgeous historical wooden flutes. And then there was Quasimodo--a monster of a baritone sax that had been painted (long ago, by a previous owner) with shiny black automobile paint. We couldn’t believe its tone was so sultry!

We were initially told that there were two "clarinet players" coming over for photos. Imagine our surprise as they started unloading the collection seen below from their cars...

The next day we went to their office for the headshot sessions where we got to work with an eclectic mix of musicians.

Kim and I look forward to working with your and your organization soon. Call us at 206-547-5788 to set up your next photo session!
