Saturday a week ago, between two oceans of dance recital photos to edit, I went to an oasis. The first person to ever hire me to make a photograph asked me to make some family portraits. Maggie, a 17 year old mare with a sweet temper, weakness for peppermint candies and a magnificent tail was the main goal, along with Cheryl and her husband Vince. There was champagne involved and after my work was done, a second bottle was opened and enjoyed by the humans while Maggie enjoyed the clover. Driving home, it occurred to me that the most important part of being a photographer is trust.
I’ve no idea how someone can transition from Rasputin to a tap dancing Train Passenger in 20 minutes Time stamps on these images say its true
And in the next 90 minutes, dance the Can Can, switch to the ballet corps and back to Rasputin
I was told to make the picture, not any one of a zillion lame jokes about “The End”

The immediacy of tomorrow morning only allows time to sample performance images made today.
I like this one a lot.

Soprano Lora Fabio knows I turn to mush when she sings. This was the first dancer who did it.
