Last year i photographed the Adelaide Cabaret Festival for the first time, loved every moment! When they asked me back to do it again this year, of course i was overjoyed and couldn't wait to get started. Now its over and i'm fucking exhausted as is everyone involved, all the incredible artists, the crews, the teams of people who work endlessly putting together this amazing festival.
Back in April i met with the marketing team and publicists and asked ... "this year can i take portraits of the artists? I'd love to sit face to face with each artist for whatever tiny amount of time i can get and take pictures of them."
"Sure. That's a great idea." They said
So, i wish to express my heartfelt thanks to all the people at the Adelaide Festival Centre who helped put this together (you know who you are). It was a massive feat and i am forever grateful for the time you took to make this happen.
To all the artists who came into the studio for a portrait session, thank you so much for taking the time in your hectic schedules to pop in and be photographed, it was a pleasure to meet you all.
And to the one that got away ... that's another story!
These are some of my favourites, but then again i have so many favourites its too difficult to choose, they'll eventually be showcased on my website.
