Not your everyday Senior Portrait…

Arthur came into the studio recently requesting something different than I usually create for a senior portrait package. I had met him a few years earlier when I was the photographer for his sister’s Bat Mitzvah and ran into him again with his family in Ashland at the Shakespeare Festival that they attend every year. When he showed up for the session in his outfit (which included spats!) I thought he was someone selling bibles :) He claimed to have no theatrical aspirations but I could tell by his movements and mannerisms that he must have spent countless hours watching Charlie Chaplin and the Marx Brothers movies because he had their shtick down pat and had his mom and I cracking up with his antics. Arthur had very specific ideas as to what shots he wanted to capture/perform so we just worked it out from his list. I love spending time with energetic, creative young people and it’s even more fun photographing them. I’ll still keep my eye out for his name to appear in a production or cast list sometime soon because this young man is really going places!

    Brian these are great shots. Inspiring to see kids who are confident in exploring and developing their own identities. I am sure his family will appreciate these photos for years to come, seeing this unique boy with a sparkle in his eyes! Great work Brian.

    These are great shots of a great person. He comes from a family of “individuals who really appreciate him. He is also very artistic in a wonderful weird way. You have taken great pictures of the whole family. ( I am biased, I am his grandmother.) Thanks for sharing.
