For the past 2 years, I've had the pleasure of providing a mini studio session to each of the top 3 in the Funniest Person in Austin contest, hosted by Cap City Comedy.
There's nothing like photographing funny people. It's how I got into professional photography. The comedy scene in Austin gives you a chance to watch creative people put themselves out there night after night, working their craft, experimenting and having side projects. It's a community that creates room to play with ideas and make fun things.
Check out each of the finalists and find out where they are performing next. Please, just go to live comedy, it's worth it. This city is packed with talent.
The second year in a row I've been lucky enough to photograph these four, and this time around I got to meet the fifth member of the family, Taco the dog. We met up in Wimberley last November, at the very spot where they're going to build a beautiful home of their own.
Paige is also a photographer so it's a double honor to be asked to capture them as a family, and, needless to say, her kids are used to having a camera in their faces. ;)
