Evan’s headshot

Evan is an opera singer, and he wanted something a bit on the formal side – so we started with a very basic, formal headshot. The results were fine, but not special, so we talked a bit about the mood and character he wanted to present, and he jokingly suggested a more serious or ‘evil’ look might work well for him. Switching the lighting to a low-key setup with just one strong side light gave us this dramatic image. It’s far from evil – his expression lets his warm personality through.

Serse – Opera at the Boston Conservatory

I was hired by the Boston Conservatory to make some press photos for their current show – the opera Serse. It was a lot of fun to shoot – great sets, lighting and costumes (designed by Janie Howland, John Malinowski and Susan Slack respectively) and a cast that was really easy to work with. These are a few of my favorites. The show is still playing, there are performances tonight and tomorrow afternoon if you’re interested.
