Photos: Sundance Film Festival

A couple weeks ago, I attended my first-ever Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. I was part of the Getty Images team of photographers and photo editors and was technically there to work. Getty has a long relationship with Sundance as the main photography vendor.  There was no shortage of film premieres and parties to cover. My main client of the week was IMDb. I manned one of the photo walls and photographed film talent before they went on to appear on the IMDb show. It was a whirlwind week in Park City with some long days and fun nights. I also had a decent amount of free time to explore Park City and get to know other photographers. It was definitely a great experience overall.

The number one question I’ve been asked: did you see anyone famous? I did indeed have close encounters with celebrities, the most memorable being Nicholas Cage, Robert Pattinson, Peter Dinklage, Usher, and Forest Whitaker.

Most of the photos I took went directly to clients, but I have a few memorable moments captured in photo and video form below. If you’d lke to read more about the experience, check out my blog, “Tips for Attending the Sundance Film Festival.
