Rodeo Clown

Noah's Mom  asked if we would photograph her son as a Father's Day gift for her husband. The fact that we're always looking for an excuse to hang with kids made it an easy yes.  We've photographed many kids over the years - our roots as assistants were with one of the top NYC children's photographer, so we've been on set with plenty of kids and yet it always presents it's own particular challenge.  What we've come to realize is that photographing children is about 10 percent skill as a photographer an 90 percent skill as a Rodeo Clown. The trick is to pace the clown act just enough so that you capture the fleeting seconds where the child actually stands still.  Or not.
