Excuse the number of images, this was just such a fun shoot and great crew. For the second year I photographed the opera’s campaign of the three performances being staged for the upcoming (2012-13) season. One scene created for each opera, each at a different and iconic location in SB – The Tea House at the Botanic Gardens for Madama Butterfly, a 1920′s Montecito Mansion (Casa del Herrero) for Don Pasquale, and the ruins of Knapp’s Castle at 3,000′ in the hills for Aida. Huge thanks to the creative staff, models and crew!
I’ll post the final images soon, these are just the fun snapshots.
