Syracuse Photographer | Beauty and the Beast

If you know me, you probably know that I spend a lot of time volunteering at the CNY Community Arts Center here in Fulton. Mostly because my kid is in just about every play and musical that they do there. Last month he was in Beauty and the Beast, Jr. He played Cogsworth, and I couldn’t have been prouder of him.

One of my volunteer roles at the Center is, of course, photographer. I do cast headshots as well as production photos for most of the shows. This show happened to be perfectly timed for me, because one of my class assignments was to do a series of four related images, each with a different lighting set-up. So when I was doing the headshots for the cast members, I asked a few of them to spend an extra few minutes with me. The result is the series of four photos shown below.

First up is my favorite clock, Cogsworth…

Next is our mysterious Beast, with some dramatic side lighting…

Then there’s our lovely Belle…

And finally, that dastardly Gaston…
