Photographing the artists of The Seagull Project at ACT – A Contemporary Theatre

 

Concept Shoot of “The Seagull Project”  in Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull at ACT Theatre in Seattle.

 

The All-Star Cast of the shoot included Julie Briskman (actor and producer), Brandon J. Simmons (actor and producer), CT DoescherHannah Victoria FranklinMark JenkinsAlexandra Tavares (actor and producer), Julie JamiesonPeter CrookJohn AbramsonJohn Bogar (actor and producer), Tyler Polumsky, producer Gavin Reub, and director John Langs (also ACT Theatre’s Associate Art Director).

The Set was put together with talented Scenic Designer, Jennifer Zeyl who helped with art direction and Megan Tuschhoff Props Master. It was also a pleasure to work with Costume Designer, Doris Black.

The Best Photography Team a girl could ever ask for consisted of Ian Spires who rocked out the lighting like no ones business, Ben Jadron who helped with lighting and was my awesome assistant photographer, and Truman Buffett who took great behind the scene stills (post coming next week!) and assisted me in detail photography.

We Started loading out the photography and lighting gear into the Bullitt Cabaret at ACT Theatre at 11:30am and had the set wrapped by 5:00pm. This shoot was amazing from start to finish with an all-star cast, design team and photography team.

To simply state the experience: “dream shoot!”
