When Pittsburgh Opera Star, Danielle Pastin, contacted me about doing promotional portraits for her, there was no way I was going to pass up the opportunity. She is an incredibly talented musician and I was excited to work with her. She needed new promotional portraits and came to my portrait studio so we could make some photographs for her. This portrait was taken in my home studio in Sparks, Maryland. I used a black seamless backdrop with three Profoto D1s. She was incredible to work with and because of her stage and theatre training, knew how to move and what looks she was going for. Photographing musicians in my studio never gets old and is one of my favorite things to do. A huge thanks to Danielle for trusting me with her promotional pictures for the opera.
