SKYFALL Re-enlist Party Night

by dav.d

It has been forever and a day since I last photographed a dance club. I was hired by SKYFALL to photograph their military themed party night. They are trying to bring the circuit scene to Salt Lake City. They had me photographed a step-and-repeat which can also be called a red carpet. Usually it’s a large vinyl sign as the background. I brought in my lighting and it worked great.

Check out all the photos on my SmugMug website.

SKYFALL also imported two dancers, Matt Palmer & Gage Alexander Kalama-Florence, and a vocalist for entertainment during the evening.

It’s the hosts, Stockton and Johnny with aerialist Brandon Scott. You’ll see some of his photographs in this post and in a later blog post. It was a fun evening.

SKYFALL has a number of VIP booths. If you drink, it’s a fun option. I don’t drink anymore, so I photograph these events stone cold sober. Years ago, I learned a ton about photographing in clubs and parties. It’s a bit different sober. As you can see, the practice paid off. The lighting for a club is a challenge and the smoke machine can be a blessing and a curse. And people want the photos ASAP.

I took a ton of photos of Brandon Scott’s aerialist performance. He is a national champion and amazing. I even created a video for the evening and it’s on YouTube.
