Stomp at Fresno Saroyan Theater

[slidepress gallery=’stomp’]

Several weeks ago, on May 19, 2009, I was asked to fill in for my friend over at Third Element Studios on a photo shoot for Visalia Direct Medias‘ local publication of Lifestyle magazine. On very short notice I took the gig and attended the concert to get the photographs posted above. Stomp is a very loud beet driven musical with each person playing a non vocal part in the play. Instruments include the following non-musical objects: zippo, newspaper, garbage bag, and yes even the kitchen sink. Their tribal beat goes to the heart and embeds itself in the brain without even a second thought and the slapstick humor keeps you wondering what will come next.

For those looking for the article and the photographs published by direct media please look for the “Lifestyle” magazine for June 2009. Be sure to have a look at the photographs also included by Forrest Cavale and his partner Zach Niles over at Third Element Studios

It was with great honor that I recently attended the Steven Curtis Chapman/ Michael W. Smith United Tour concert held at the Visalia convention center as one of their 2 commissioned photographers. Growing up in the Central San Joaquin Valley’s Bible Belt has brought me many great opportunities, this being one of them.
