Fear of Flying

Today I had the pleasure of completing my first photo shoot for Tribeza magazine. I was assigned to photograph two local Austin artists. One at his Lock-Away studio down south and the other outside or rather on the Federal building in downtown. I found a few moments to capture aerial dancer and choreographer Laura Cannon from Blue Lapis Light as she took time to enjoy being suspended. I must admit I previously thought the shoot would be very challenging yet Sally Jacques the artistic director, Corey Fields the rigger and Laura were amazing to work with and I can't complain about the view. It was like my own private performance held at sunset. Although I am deathly afraid of heights I'm tempted to take a workshop and see what happens.
