Behind the Scenes of the COMEDIANS Photo Series
The inspiration for this photo series came from what was supposed to be a one-off portrait session with one of my oldest friends in NY, comedian Ardie Fuqua.
The series was made possible thanks to the help of professional makeup artists, set designers, costume designers, BTS photographers, video editors, location owners/managers, and many additional friends who all volunteered their time and talents towards the ultimate goal of raising funds for charities devoted to helping children who are suffering from ADHD, anxiety, and learning disorders.
This past November, Carolines Comedy Club and TBS hosted and sponsored the gallery fund raising event as part of the NYCF lineup, which benefited the Mount Sinai Division of ADHD, Learning Disabilities and Related Disorders. That was just the begining, what I like to refer to as Phase One of this project.
The series is still a work in progress, with many more comedians coming up next.
