High Museum | Teen Night

– Posted by Mark

Last Saturday we were at the High Museum for their Teen Night! We had a photobooth there + event photography. Of course – since I brought along half of the Intern Army and since it’s the High Museum – we didn’t want to do the normal photobooth setup.

They actually requested we do something more ‘Warhol-factory-inspired’. SO. We did. We setup a large grey seamless, some side lights, made everything black and white – and let the teens do what they do.

Actually – if you’ve ever seen photos of Warhol’s ‘factory’ – they’re mostly black and white, and they have a harsh, raw and side-lit feel to them. Warhol did a series of ‘screen tests’ videos and a few months ago the High Museum also asked us if we could recreate something like that experience for their ‘Family Day‘ right after Thanksgiving.

We’ve been working with the High Museum for a while now and it’s always fun to try and come up with something different.

Oh yeah – one other thing – they have CRAAAZZY Dance parties there. Those photos will be up… tomorrow.

Dali ’til Dawn + Intern Army

So while I was photographing a wedding in Huntsville, Alabama last week – five members of the Intern Army were photographing the last night of the Salvador Dali exhibit at the High Museum of Art. (In case you didn’t know – we’re actually taking applications all this week for our next group of Interns.)

The team was led by Intern Laura, and included Interns Brett, Niki, Brittany & Amanda. They were contracted to be there from 10pm-2am but apparently since there were circus acts, costumes, and general craziness – they kept photographing long past the 2am stop time.

Current Interns Brittany, Brett, & Niki (note the bright orange badges that ALL LeahAndMark Interns wear while working events.)

This wasn’t the first time the Intern Army’s handled events on their own – they also tackled the Indie Craft Experience, several Yelp Events, and this proposal shoot in the Botanical Gardens wouldn’t have been nearly as much fun without them. Oh yeah – AND we photographed two other events at the High Museum when the Dali exhibit opened. Yeah. I think it’s safe to say the Interns have a good time.

Hey – look – even Alumni Interns were there (up above on the left is Alumni Intern Jenna!)

Up above that’s Alumni Interns Robby & Christy!

One of the strengths and advantages of the Intern Army is that when we photograph events – we work in teams. Photography is generally a competitive solo effort – and you know what? It’s really nice to be able to work large events such as this one – and know that you’re shooting with friends. Leah and I are present for some events, but then we also send the Interns out as a team on their own – and we encourage them to team up when organizing model photo shoots for practice.  Sometimes they’re paid gigs and sometimes we’re shooting for free (Anime!) because we think it’s interesting – but these events are when we get to try out new ideas in a live action setting (without the pressure of say, a wedding day.)

And of course – different from most programs out there, we have our Photography Business Marketing Workshop.

Leah and I feel like we’re building something special with our Intern program – and if you’re interested in working with us, or know someone who might be interested – check out the Application Here.

High Museum | College Night

Last Saturday evening – we had our photobooth outside of the High Museum of Art, Atlanta – for College Night of the Salvador Dali exhibit. In case you can’t tell – it was a lot of fun. I mean – what’s not fun about having a photobooth OUTSIDE – with hundreds of people walking all around and gawking at your cool setup.

Check out the video below to see us at work.

All photos were taken by our Interns – ChrisL & Kristen.

Chris actually drives an hour and half into town from Carrollton, GA for every photoshoot, meeting, and workshop with us – and Kristen actually moved up here from Florida for the 3 months of the internship. I cannot thank them enough for all of their hardwork.
