I’ve been an official photography for the Freddy Awards held at the beautiful State Theatre in Easton, PA for nearly 10 years.

Last year was unlike any other previous years for them as well as many theaters. They were able to have an abbreviated performance outdoors to keep the tradition alive after having to cancel in 2020.

This required a lot of rehearsals outdoor on the parking deck of the theater often in the heat and sun.

In the end it was all worth it and everyone had a great time!

Freddy Awards 2019 Retrospective

What we feared most has sadly come true. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, there will be no 2020 Freddy Awards. But wait – all is not lost. WFMZ and the wonderful State Theatre will be having a television special on Thursday, May 21 at 6:30 pm. Details are still being worked out on what will be in the special but I can’t wait!

My favorite photos from last year’s Freddy Awards are currently on display at the Easton Hospital Gallery inside the State Theatre. Of course, no one will be able to see them until we return a little more to the old normal and are able to re-open the theater. In the meantime, I wanted to share a slide show of my photos that are on display in the gallery.

If you see one you love they are for sale by the State Theater. Please contact them to find out how to purchase. Get in touch with me if you have any questions.

Until next year, break a leg!

Freddy Awards 2018 Retrospective

With everything going on in the world right now, I wanted to share a little theater joy. I’m not quite sure what will be happening with the 2020 Freddy Awards, but I know a lot of school’s productions have been postponed until the quarantine is lifted. So I wanted to share some of my best photographs from the 2018 Freddy Awards. These were on display in the Easton Hospital Gallery in the State Theatre last year. I will post my 2019 Freddy Award photographs soon.

All of these, and MANY more can be seen and purchased on my website:
