For most of my career as a studio commercial photographer I have done my best to have at least one project going that is a different type of subject than the commercial product work I do day to day. The work that follows are collaborations with performance artists of various stripes. Circus, dance, and theater artists, and some who defy a category, have all contributed to these photographs; photographs which would not be possible without the dedication and hard practice that it takes to do the things they do. They graciously put up with the demands of meticulous studio lighting; often holding poses and performing under less than ideal conditions. I am deeply grateful for the chance to have worked with such talent and hope you enjoy viewing the work as much as I did creating it.
