This weekend represented two of my favorite things- pool parties and drag queens! I kicked off the weekend by shooting Skrillex at Talking Stick Resort's Release Pool Party. I have never seen the event so crowded! I believe it sold out.
Skrillex had a fantastic stage presence and always looked like he was having fun. Even if you are a casual fan of EDM, I'd recommend checking him out!
I closed out the weekend by photographing Kobalt's Memorial Day Divas Drag Show. I took some cool portraits of the queens before the show.
One of my favorite quotes as the queens were setting up was "day drag is weird." Drag is very much oriented in nightclubs, so it was interesting to see a mostly sober crowd enjoying the show. That didn't stop them from having a great time, though.
This portrait of T.C. Taylor is my favorite. I also enjoyed seeing Payda Parc in partial drag.
