Palm Springs Film Festival

Palm Springs Film Festival

For three years now I have had the pleasure of running a portrait studio at the Palm Springs Film Festival Gala. What I love about it is that it has the usual fast-paced qualities of a film festival portrait studio: brief but intense portrait sessions and new subjects every few minutes, but with the added bonus of me being the only portrait photographer at the event.

It is always a great early glimpse of the films and stars of that year’s awards season. And it is at this event that I make some of my most memorable portraits.
