I know it has been a while since I last uploaded some of my photos, so I figured that instead of making a bunch of old posts that aren’t super relevant anymore, I would just throw a sample photo from each event in and link you to the facebook albums if you cared to see more.
This summer was a busy one. Lots of running around, trying to get my personal life in order. I had to find a new roommate, move out of my apartment, apply to graduate school, and deal with a car that chronically had something wrong with it. I’m glad to say that I did, eventually, find a roommate; we did, with much effort, find a new place to live; I was able to get into graduate school (I’m going to be a psychologist!); and, of course, my car still has problems. On the bright side, I’m glad to say that I am officially the staff photographer of Eastern University’s Fine and Performing Arts Division, so that means more dance, music, and theatre photos will be posted over the course of this year!
And now for the blog posts that should have gone up months ago…
Jessica Czop Headshots
I met Jess back in undergrad some three or four years ago. She happened to be the roommate of one of my co-workers. She was majoring in something biological during her time at school, but has since turned to acting. She must be doing well since she has her own IMDB page! I was thrilled when she told me she wanted me to do some new headshots for her! Maybe someday she’ll get famous and take me along with her…

DVDA’s “An Evening by the Lake”
This was an interesting show to shoot because I was actually in the wings taking these pictures. Standing amongst the dancers. Trying not to be in the way. It all turned out well, though, and the girls did a wonderful job! It was so cute seeing the little kids in their duckling costumes (not pictured above).
Want to see all of these pictures (including the ducklings)? Take a look at the albums on Facebook. There’s a total of three albums posted, so make sure you look at each one!

Jillian Miller @ Chaplin’s Coffeehouse
Jillian and I go way back — to the very first class of our undergraduate careers. She is outstandingly talented and extremely passionate for music, which is obvious to anyone who hears her. This was her first coffeehouse in recent history and has been since invited to open for an act at another coffeehouse in Phoenixville. Hopefully she’ll keep at it — it won’t be long until she’s the headliner!

Eastern University’s Dance calendar ended with their spectacular Spring Dance Show. I was particularly impressed by the student’s skill through different styles of dance – from an interesting tap piece set to guitar, to a beautiful and graceful ballet piece, and even to a very intense and exciting African dance piece. If you ever get the chance to see one of Eastern’s Dance productions, I would highly recommend it!
Update: If you like what I’ve been able to do with Eastern University Dance, Music, and Theatre, then you’re in luck! I have been officially contracted as Eastern’s Fine and Performing Arts photographer for the 2011-2012 academic year!

It’s been a while since my last post, but I’m glad to finally share some of the work I did with the Delaware Valley Dance Academy out in Hatboro, PA. These remarkably talented dancers invited me into their studio for a photoshoot. Although this was a bit out of my area of expertise (I’m not really a studio photographer — more of a performance photographer), I think we came up with some nice photos!

Not too long ago, I had the pleasure of working with Cate in the dance studio at Eastern University. This girl is crazy talented! And to think, she’s still got a few years of college left! We had a lot of fun during this shoot. I showed her a thing or two about photography and she made me feel incredibly out of shape. A perfect night.
Here are a few samples of Eastern University’s Senior Dance Show titled “Still Standing.” The show was comprised of pieces choreographed by each of the three graduating seniors this year: Heather Mahurin, Liz Lyle, and Kelsey Brennan. I have been fortunate enough to work with these three before and I was simply amazed by the beauty of their choreography. Each one had their own style about them, making the entire show a joy to watch. It will be sad to see them leave, but I’m sure they all have bright futures ahead of them!
