A lot of people know me as an event photographer. I do photograph a good number of events! These photographs are for Salt Lake Acting Company’s party celebrating the opening of Climbing with Tigers. Authors Nathan Glad and Dallas Graham were on hand to celebrate. SLAC also recognized the people who helped bring the play to the stage.
The first part of the event was the red carpet. As guests, actors, and other people arrived I would photograph them as they walked the red carpet. I would try and get each person in action… some people would pose and others would hide from the camera! I guess you don’t have to be in Hollywood to avoid the paparazzi!
And I always try to get the best photograph of people. That might mean snapping a burst of photos so I can delete the blinks and awkward poses. Everyone deserves to look there best, even when it is just a candid moment on the red carpet. We did have a few people stop to pose for the camera, which is great. Group photos are great for families, friends, and making new friends.
