Bust 'Em Up Burlesque

Send in the Girls Burlesque has hit the big time! 

Their new show, Bust 'Em Up Burlesque is opening tonight at the Citadel Theatre. We were so happy to be working with them to build promotional images for the fourth time.

For this shoot, we broke away from tradition where we shoot against a black wall, and went out into the real world. We first went to a house with an awesome claw bathtub, then headed over to the Mercer Tavern for the remainder of the session.

The Mercer was such a great fit because it has an actual large safe built right into the wall which fit perfectly with the 1920s bank robber setting of the show.

We will be there tonight for their opening. Can't wait to see it. You should see it too.

The National Elevator Project

This is the thing theatre can do that movies can't.

A one of a kind experience.

A chance to watch a 5 minute play in the intimacy of a real elevator.

I was so excited when Theatre Yes approached me to design their posters and online material for The National Elevator Project. The concept of the shoot surrounded some of the most awkward situations you could find yourself in during a quick ride from the 31st floor of a downtown sky rise.

I encourage you to visit theatre-yes.ca or head over to their Facebook page for more information. 

Plays are five minutes in length and will be available on demand during a 2 hour window daily (from 7:30pm - 9:30pm; matinees are from 2pm - 4pm).

Tickets can be purchased at Tix on the Square.

Capitol Theatre Presents - Blue Heaven

We have been selected to be the graphic designer / photographers for Capitol Theatre's new season. It is quite the honour. For me, it allows me to combine my two passions; theatre and photography. I can't wait to show you what we've been working on.

The Capitol Theatre at Fort Edmonton Park's first production this season is 'Blue Heaven' by Nick Green. The show runs March 7-17 at 8 PM in their beautiful new (old) theatre. Go check it out! Click here for more info on how to get tickets.

Also, check out the poster and promotional photos we did for this awesome group.

Here's to a fun season.

Snow Globe Festival of Children's Theatre - 2012

It's that time of year again! The snow has fallen, there is a jingle in the malls as you rush to get your shopping done, and back warming children's hearts for another year is the Snow Globe Festival of Children's Theatre, running December 18-22 at the C-103 (formerly the Catalyst theatre).

Promise Productions' annual gift to the city of Edmonton is back for it's second year. I had the privilege once again to handle all the graphic design and photography for this theatre festival.

If you have young ones, or are young at heart, you will not be disappointed with the awesome line up this year.

The festival is featuring:

Babes in Toyland by Rebecca Ryland

Robin Hoodby Kathryn Schultz Miller


Birdie on the Wrong Bus by the festival's own Ellen Chorley

Tickets are on sale now at Tix on the Square and more information can be found on their website:

www.promiseproductionstheatre.com or on their Facebook page.

Here are some of the shots I did for the festival.

Enjoy and hope to see you there.
