The amazing women featured in the top three photos will perform at the show with El Circo Cheapo Cabaret. I shot those portraits recently for a project I’m working on involving acrobats, aerialist, and other circus artists. Also appearing this weekend will be the incredible Zoppé Circus. The suave dude in the bottom picture waiting for a drink is composer, drummer, and culture kingpin Mike Reed, who created BCPA. You might remember him from this post or if not that one, maybe it was this one.
I just started a new self-assigned project, shooting portraits of jazz musicians. Here are shots from the first two photo sessions: Mike Reed (top, shot last weekend on his rooftop) and Frank Rosaly (bottom photo, shot last week at the Hideout during a sound check).
If you’re a jazzer and up for having your picture taken, contact me.
