Last June, I finally photographed a series that had been on my mind for quite some time. In LA we lived less than a mile from CBS Television City, a famous studio where shows like The Price is Right, American Idol, and Dancing With the Stars have taped. I used to drive by on my way to and from photo shoots and see lines of people, dressed as if for church, sweating it out in the sun. It took me a bit but then I realized — these were the live audience members you see on talk shows and game shows. These were the people you can hear laughing in the background on sitcoms. These were the Live Audience. 
I posted a casting call on craigslist and LA Casting, asking people who had been an audience member on at least three shows to come in to the studio and be photographed. Over the next ten days or so I’ll be posted some selects from that series. You can see the whole project on my site.

Eva Longoria is a beautiful woman. It’s easy to see, and she’s easy to photograph. So it was a blast creating a simple but glamorous scene for the actress//producer/director/activist at Cherry Soda Studios in Los Angeles for Backstage Magazine. Longoria stars, along with Ed Harris, Michael Peña, and Amy Madigan in Frontera, directed by Michael Berry. Awesome design by CD Robert Wilson.

Sometimes I get to go to really pretty places, and shoot in really pretty light.

Judy Greer is delightful. No surprise there, because she seems like she would be. She also has amazing blue eyes which, you may notice, match her swimming pool. In addition to playing an ape in “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” she is starring in FX network’s “Married,” AND she’s written a memoir, “I Don’t Know What You Know Me From.”
