Behind the Scenes: Improvisors at SFIF

This week I’ve been posting portraits from the San Francisco Improv Festival. I can’t tell you how much fun it is to photograph improvisors! Such creativity, generosity and commitment. A photographer’s dream.

Here are some behind-the-scenes photos of yours truly being goofy with Jamie Wright, one of the SFIF‘s producers. (Photos by my lovely girlfriend Jacklyn, who is a talented photographer in her own right.)

Here is the final portrait of Jamie, as well as portraits of two other SFIF producers, Sam Shaw & Cassidy Brown:
