as luck would have it, a second netflix comedy special that i worked on was released this month, too: tig notaro's happy to be here, out on may 22nd.
this was planned and pulled together very quickly - shot in early april, out less than two months later. the shoot itself was . . . odd. i have long had a great amount of sympathy for those who are uncomfortable being photographed. i pride myself on being fairly good at putting nervous people at ease and making the experience as pleasant as it can be. in this particular case there were very particular restrictions placed on what i could and couldn't do during the shoot, and the interactions between tig and myself. that's pretty much all i can say, except to say that it's not anything i've ever run across in over two decades of photographing people.
still, here are a handful of out-takes that i liked, below.
