Yesterday I dragged my ass out of bed at 7:00am to go shoot the Preforming Arts Department at SMU. My lady friend wants to use the photos for promotions, and to encourage alumni to give back to the arts. I always complain when I have to get up that early to shoot, but once I start, I'm so thankful I did. The light is so forgiving that time of day...spilling over everything outside and into windows. I'm excited with how these shots turned out. Here's a few of my favorites:
This is Giva Taylor (Dallas' Mistress of Insane Costumes...Really, she's the gate keeper of some breath taking garments) teaching a costuming class. I had the pleasure of working with Giva when I preformed with the Undermain. She's fabulous, and I just wanted to stay in her costume closet. SO many incredible pieces and ridiculous hats. Howsbout taking a costume class with 3 students? Wow.
"Nah, i'm not going to skip drawing today, ya know cause the class is in an old museum and all..." GAH!
Last shot of the day. Floating nest installation. Amazing what you can miss by not taking the time to look up.
This shoot was pretty damn fulfilling. All of the facilities were quality. The set building shop, the sewing room with 50 industrial sewing machines. LAWD, it made me want to go back and get a Masters...For those of you who can afford it...or who love taking on huge amounts of student loans...I recommend checking out SMU.
