    • Took photographs for Acá Theatre during a couple shows and the performances I've been a part of are aimed at small children and are filled with activities that are great for photo opportunities. The interaction between the cast and the children is something that Acá looked for as their show revolves around reactions, so this is something I look for when photographing. The pictures are usually published on facebook after I send them to the Acá team. The only difficultly is when a parent asks for pictures of their child not to be posted as children can be very active in the show and I may not notice that they are in the background of the shot during that time, so I usually take a lot more photos so that those that can't be used can be filtered out and there are still enough photos.

    • Took photographs in lectures, seminars, workshops and events such as exhibition openings and edited the photos after. I typically take many photographs and then edit them down to choose which ones I want to use and then if needed I alter the levels of the pictures for enhancement.
