IVEY Awards 2009

I went to the IVEY Awards last night to take a few photos for Minnesota Playlist and was pretty much limited to the red carpet. There were already several photographers shooting posed portraits, so I tried to get some different stuff. Here are a few of my favorites. IMG_2912-Edit The scene outside the State Theater.

Theater Rehearsal Photo Project

Over the past month I had the honor of being invited in to document the rehearsals of several Minneapolis theater companies. The goal was to produce a photo gallery showing the often unseen rehearsal process for Minnesota Playlist, an online performing arts magazine. Below are a few photos, but you can check them all out here. You might even see a photo of yours truly at the bottom of the page.

Thanks to everyone who welcomed me in and gave unrestricted access to what is usually a fairly private process.
