A Project Named Desire

This week I caught up with three of the nine theatre companies that are participating in The Tennessee Project Toronto. Rehearsals are in full swing and you can tell that the project will be full of spectacular performances from some special talent. Here are some shots from the rehearsals of This Property Is CondemnedAnd Tell Sad Stories of the Deaths of Queens, and Something Unspoken.  The companies responsible are Theatre CaravelAfterglow Theatre, and Written On Water Theatre respectively.

Pancakes and Portraits

Last month some friends dropped by early one Sunday morning for some portraits; so I made some pancakes.  Not sure about the connection, but I think it helps put a natural smile on their faces!  Rebecca is in a theatre group so she needed some actors’ head shots, while Emma is in banking and required some corporate head shots. It seems the key to good results is to use some good natural lighting and real maple syrup!
