Arpil 07, 2011 – My Newspace photography group was invited to Darcelle’s XV in Portland, Oregon for a behind the scenes opportunity to shoot the performers. Darcelle’s is not for everyone but the energy is high and the performers are fun, down to earth people. We arrived around 6:30pm. We where led downstairs where the performers where getting ready. They where situated in front of mirrors applying make-up. They where engaging and fun and appeared to really enjoy themselves. The dressing room is tight quarters to say the least. I was difficult to photography without getting another photographer in the picture. Once the show started we continued to take pictures and enjoy the show.
