Photographing the artists of Intiman Theatre: 1 of 35

 

Timothy McCuen Piggee was the first actor I had the pleasure of photographing for my personal photo essay featuring Intiman Theatre.  On our quick walk about on the city streets capturing images, I found that he is fun, spontaneous and very kind.  Not to mention gorgeous.  I absolutely love the inner strength he holds, and I kind of like to think of Timothy as my personal Super Hero.

Special thanks to Seattle TESLA for allowing us to photograph inside the showroom.

 

Q&A with actor Timothy McCuen Piggee

Photo Sister: Elvis or Beatles?
Timothy Piggee: Beatles (I mean really…)

PS: What do you fear most?
TP: I think that would be my loss of freedom. The thought of loosing any aspect of personal choice, thought, mobility or capacity to dream sends me right over the edge.

PS: What do I splurge on?
TP: Dinner parties with friends. Few things give me more pleasure than gathering a few close friends (and a stranger or two), for a few hours of fellowship, food and drink.
