Fairfield Theatre Company

I have photographed many events at stage one at The Fairfield Theatre Company but never at the warehouse at FTC. This was my first time at the warehouse which is 4-5 times larger than stage one. I hope this makes sense.

I was in awe of the space, it really is a great place to capture an event. It is really a test to photograph in there, the ceilings are very tall and all of the walls are black. It has a large stage in the middle with a bar area to the side and a second level area that has extra seating and a unique view of the stage.

I used the banister to prop my camera for a time exposure.

Stage lights can be used for a positive solution for a good image.

I always like “reactions” or “emotions”.

The more natural the better.

FTC Warehouse is a great place to hear and see music.

Fashionably Westport 2023

Each year the Westport Downtown Merchants Association produces a fashion show to raise money and awareness to Homes With Hope. Homes with Hope provide solutions to help homelessness in Fairfield County.

I do not get to photograph runway models often, but when I do, I really enjoy it. The hardest part is holding my camera in a vertical position for so long. your arm starts to get wonky after the 10th model so you have to find ways to give your arm a little break.

My favorite part of the shoot is the backstage stuff. Going unnoticed and capturing expressions of people who are not aware of you and being a native Westporter, I get to meet and talk to my old and new neighbors.

Here are the links to my photos. Have fun.



Before the storm.

Can you find my logo?

Last minute advice on walking down the runway.

Young love caught in the dressing room.

70-200mm canon lens gets pretty heavy after 5 minutes of vertical shooting.

But it is such a great lens. Tack sharp. Even caught a wink.

My spot at the end of the runway in “the pit” it was so much fun. ( photoshop of me)
