WHITE HOT is the critically acclaimed play by Tommy Smith.At its west coast premiere I was lucky enough to be on the fringe during production and thought it would be a great exercise in photography to photograph the men who made this play happen. My goals for this were to:
1. accomplish mastering new lighting techniques
2. hone my skills with photographing single male subjects and
3. support and bring awareness to a theatre project I personally supportThank you gentlemen for being kind enough to fit me into your busy schedules for this.
