Photographing a comedian is hard. Why? Because it’s difficult to keep the camera from shaking from laughter. [Lowie] is one funny dude. Which is good since it is what he does for a living. Originally from Australia, he now hosts a radio show and does stand-up comedy all over the place, mostly notably here in Los Angeles.
We played a word game.
I would say a word, and I told him to make a face in reaction to that one word (i.e., politics, confusion, sad, naughty, religion). The pictures captured were hilarious. We walked the Santa Monica Pier and took shots in secret (since they are so finicky there about photography). I think my favorite shot was the one where I was forcing him to get on a little kids’ ride, but a little girl beat him to it.
So he got on the mini carousel instead.
