Below are various screenshots of Social Media posts by Jobsite Theater using my photography from several photo shoots as marketing collateral

Working with the awesome team at Jobsite Theater I was able to photograph the portraits of their cast of Romeo & Juliet. Jobsite brought an 80’s theme to their interpretation of this classic. With that in mind I light and posed the actors as if it were 1980’s Olan Mills portrait session, but influenced by John Hugh‘s directorial styles as well as Tak Fujimoto and Bobby Byrne‘s cinematography styles.
Centerbill is the monthly magazine / playbill for The Straz Center for Preforming Arts in Tampa, Florida. They used one of my portraits from Shockheaded Pete cast shoot for their cover this month!
“I was blown away by the production photos. The images were thrilling – in your face, subversive, and more than a touch frightening. In other words, a perfect match for the material.” – JPC link
Its all Smoke & Lights!

I was asked back to photograph Jobsite Theater’s production of Shockheaded Peter! Previously I did the promo-headshots of the actors in character. That was a lot of fun, so needless to say that I was really excited to see the show that they created.
These photos are from “final dress” rehearsal. With this level of access I was able to get some incredibly unique perspectives of the show that normally wouldn’t be possible during a theatrical event because of the disruption that it would cause.
These photos were used throughout multiple media campaigns, reviews, social media, and promotional materials for this show:
Tampa Bay Times, Creative Loafing (Tampa Bay), Broadway World (1st review), Broadway World (2nd review)
Shockheaded Peter is based on Heinrich Hoffman’s 1845 children’s book, Der Struwwelpeter. Think of it as a macabre version of Grimm’s Fairy Tales. A bizarre series of short “cautionary” … umm children’s(?) stories.
This was an opportunity to not only work with some fantastically talented actors, but also to create a unique dreamlike look with strangely distorted perspectives using techniques that I normally wouldn’t choose to use in portrait photography.
