One of the really the great things about being a performance photographer is that while I am shooting I get to experience some amazing talent. Although I don’t get to fully appreciate it until I go through the images later since while it is going on I am trying to get the shots that wow the clients. The most difficult shooting I have encountered is for Teatro ZinZanni since the theatre is in the round filled with paying clients, wait staff, performers and management. The guidelines are strict but the payoff is pretty incredible as you can see in the image below.
If you have never been to Teatro ZinZanni and live in either the Bay Area or Seattle I highly recommend it. The venue itself is intimate and unique, the food is great but it is being so close to the performance that creates some real magic that you can’t find anywhere else.
