One of the most fun things I get to do as a photographer is to help out area high schools by photographing their musicals. It all started when my kids were part of the casts. I volunteered my time and talent to shoot the headshots for the program and display case and then the dress rehearsals for promotion and display. They have graduated and moved on, but I have continued to support the stage arts by offering my services. As I've said before about my senior portrait business, I love photographing high school students! The energy and excitement is infectious!! It's no different working with stage production students. They love what they do too and to be able to give back to them is so great.
I've had the good fortune, for the past few years, of working with Webster Schroeder High School's theater department. Carrie Zugelder and her staff and students put on an excellent production of Guys and Dolls. It was a pleasure helping them out, from headshots to dress rehearsal.
A dear friend in Irondequoit has a daughter, Margaret, who is such a talented young lady and has been a major part of their productions for the past two years. She asked if I would photograph last year's Legally Blonde and this year's The Drowsy Chaperone. What a fun, truly funny show and I had a ball capturing the performance for them. Rob Line and his cast and crew had me entertained from the first line to the last!
For those of you that enjoy a good high school musical, you need to do yourself, and the schools a favor. Attend a show! Support them and take a night out any time you can. You won't regret it!!!
