Photographing the artists of Intiman Theatre

 

Dancer Brian Culbertson is one of the sweetest and endearing  people I’ve met. Our paths have crossed many times at theatre events, and I finally got him to come over to the studio for a glass of champagne mini-lifestyle session to capture this chapter of his life while interning for Intiman Theatre.

The entire session was done on a simple white background with natural light. All I wanted to focus on were his gorgeous crystal eyes, beautiful freckles and fiery hair.
