Noah Benezra is hilarious. Like a younger version of Mark Siano but on crack coffee and black tar maple syrup.

Seriously.

And may I add, the perfect energetic mix for his current character “Wolf” in Bed Snake at Washington Ensemble Theatre.

When I originally asked Noah if he’s like to be featured here on PhotoSister.com I asked him if he had any cool concepts and his answer involved cooking bacon, which is AWESOME. Oh yes, this shoot is a big professional nod to my creativeLIVE junkies out there (you know who you are). For those of you who don’t know creativeLIVE, it’s a live interactive photography workshop that airs across the globe and the course chat rooms frenzy on the word “bacon”. (DRINK!)

As soon as I arrived at his door step my energy went from 7 to 11 in 17.8 seconds and we quickly came up with three concepts all involving consumables that punches your energy then makes you crash. All good things for a ridiculously enthusiastic shoot. Noah, thanks for rockin’ this shoot out!
