Backstage in Las Vegas with Donnie & Snoop(y)

Thursday, January 05, 2006 Concept/Objective:

Assignment ConstructThe ongoing objective was to capture interactive images backstage during the CES show in Las Vegas. Wherever possible, it was best to have client logos/signage in the background, but the best images were most important. It was not planned that we’d capture such an unusual paring such as this!


The location was very small—approximately 8’ x 10’, with a small table, chairs, and shelving. Next to no space to move, and the backstage door led into the room, and then the “frontstage” door led to the stage and display areas. The room served multiple functions, and my presence in there was a space-taker, but a necessary one.


The assignment was to document who was in the backstage room, as well as their appearances on stage. Each person who came either was performing, or participating in a talk radio interview, so covering on-stage activities as well as what happened backstage was a balancing act.


Images from each day, approximately every hour or two, were reviewed, captioned, and sent out via the on-site digital workstation, made available to media around the world.

Final Analysis:

Images from this day, this backstage paring, made it out into major press outlets, much to the client’s satisfaction.
