I've been fortunate to shoot five shows over the past year and a half for Boston's Wheelock Family Theatre, including last month's final dress rehearsals for "Stuart Little." The final mainstage show of the 2017-18 season, this fun and entertaining theatre experience ends its run on Sunday.
My featured artist exhibit, "The Resilience Project," is on display in the Arches Gallery (building W-9) at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton through April 1. A reception will be held as part of the center's Second Saturday Art Walk from 6 to 9 p.m. on March 10.
Included in the exhibit are 28 photos focused on the theme of resilience, as well as photos taken by students from Holmes Middle School in Annandale. The student work is part of the Artist in Residence program I'm participating in thanks to the Arts Council of Fairfax County.
Come see my work! To read more about the exhibit and get a preview of the photos on display, go to http://glenncook.virb.com/resilience
Earlier this week, I had an opportunity to shoot photos of the iMpulse company at Metropolitan School of the Arts. The purpose was to promote “10Plus1,” a show on April 15 that will mark the company’s 10th anniversary and be the spring performance of the Metropolitan Youth Tap Ensemble. Iconic movies will be one of the themes.
Of course, when a photographer has a number of talented dancers in a black box theatre, we had to take some additional shots, so I have a few “outtakes.” To see more, go to my "Art & Dance" gallery here.
New headshots of Gabriella, a senior at South County High School, are now up on my website. Take a look and schedule your session soon!
Over the past several months, I've been shooting a series of conferences/performances, writing freelance stories, and taking headshots. That's the good news.
The bad news is this blog has been a little neglected during that time.
I have been updating the blog with things you missed, one of which is this gallery of your favorite photos from 2017. You can see these and others in my Facebook album here.
All of these are for sale, in whatever size or configuration you'd like. I think they'd make great gifts, nice sets of cards, etc. If you're interested in something, send me an e-mail or message on Facebook and I can get you a price list.
I hope you enjoy taking a look at some of the random things I see, and I promise to be back with more soon.
Just added an Instagram account for my business. Follow me @glenncookphotography
Sixty-nine of my photos, images taken throughout Virginia and Washington, D.C., now adorn the walls of Innovation Health’s new and recently expanded offices in Falls Church, Va. All but one of the photos are professionally printed and framed 16x24 images; the last, a frozen Potomac River, is a metal 36x24 print.
This project has been in the works for several months and more photos have been added as part of the company’s expansion. The last set of images were delivered last week, and I wanted to share the work here.
Innovation Health is the result of a unique partnership between two industry leaders: Inova and Aetna. Inova is a nationally recognized not-for-profit health care system serving more than 2 million people each year. Aetna, one of the nation’s leading health care benefits companies, serves more than 22 million medical members. Innovation Health also is the official health insurance company of the Washington Redskins.
If you know someone who would be interested in this type of project, large or small, for their business or company, please consider giving my name as a reference. I also am working on an expanded webpage to sell prints of these and other images that should be up in the near future.
Meanwhile, if you are interested in purchasing prints of my work, send me a private message on Facebook or an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again to the staff at Innovation Health for their faith and kind words, and to my photographer friends and family who helped along the way.
On a cloudy, soupy and humid Sunday, with less than a day to kill before I started shooting the first of two conferences this month in New Orleans, I decided to go on a tour of a Louisiana swamp.
The tour of Bayou Barataria started at the dock of Crown Point, located just 12 miles from the French Quarter and adjacent to the Jean Lafitte National Park and Preserve. Lafitte, the infamous pirate, used the bayou as his “highway” to New Orleans.
The tour included bayou views of a 200-year-old above ground cemetery known as the Indian Mound. We also saw herons, a couple of pelicans, and the inevitable alligators.
A couple of interesting facts from our guide at the Louisiana Tour Company:
• The major difference between alligators and crocodiles is gators hibernate for 3 to 4 months a year.
• Male alligators typically grow up to a foot a year until they reach 6 feet. They continue to grow — reaching up to 13 feet in length and more than 500 pounds — but the rate slows at about age 6.
• Female alligators are smaller and grow less quickly than males. They can reach 9 feet in length and more than 200 pounds.
• Alligators are color blind. It’s one reason they like, believe it or not, marshmallows. It’s true; I’ve seen it up close.
All in all, an interesting experience and an opportunity to take some fun photos.

The Virginia Dance Coalition recently held DanceFest 2017 in Alexandria, a weekend event featuring master classes for students and performances by 13 area companies/studios. I was the official photographer for the event, which featured 20 performances in a two-hour show at the end of the festival.
These photos were taken during the dress rehearsal, where I could walk around and look for different angles, and the performance. Companies performing, in alphabetical order, were:
Ballet Arts Ensemble, Ballet Nova Center for Dance, Classical Ballet Theatre, DanceArt Theater, Encore Theatrical Arts Project, Fairfax Ballet Company, Kalavaridhi Center, Kista Tucker Insights, Metropolitan Youth Ballet, Nrityanjali, Play Time Tap, Virginia Ballet Company, and Xuejuan Dance Ensemble.
A new gallery is up in the Performances: Theater & Cabaret section of the website. To see more photos from the event, go to my e-store at http://glenncookphotos.smugmug.com. If you are interested in purchasing photos that are not watermarked, send an email to email@example.com.
My poster for "Road Show," now in building 16 at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton through March 4. Exhibit hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays.
Two and a half years ago, just after developing the “Art & Dance” concept, I took a group of ballerinas from Metropolitan School of the Arts into Washington, D.C., where we shot photos at a graffiti park and in the Federal Triangle. The shoot was very successful, and spurred much of what has taken place since with this series.
What was missing, however, was a second chance to take photos of MSA ballerinas in this type of setting. That changed on Monday, when five members of the Metropolitan Youth Ballet and a helpful apprentice went to Theodore Roosevelt Island and to Great Falls, Va., for the latest installment in the series.
Blessed by an early spring-like day, we navigated around an unusually large contingent of families walking around Theodore Roosevelt Island and took photos in a creek at a small park near the larger Great Falls facility.
At last weekend's Women's March on Washington, I was drawn to the vast variety of signs and messages directed at our nation's new president. To commemorate the historic day, I decided to create a collage of the various messages and make it available to anyone interested in purchasing it.
Titled "Signs of the Times," the print also is available with a foam core backing. If you are interested, send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. A portion of any profits will be given to one or more nonprofits that served as "Partners" on the march.
One of my largest freelance jobs is shooting photos for Metropolitan School of the Arts. Over the past two years, I've captured more than 50 galleries of performances and events that feature studio and Academy students. Those galleries are posted at my e-store (http://glenncookphoto.smugmug.com) and both prints and high-resolution downloads are available for purchase.
4x6 prints are only $2 and other sizes are available. Downloads range from $1 for a print suitable for use in social networking to $3 for a high-resolution image. Visit the site, browse, share, and purchase. A portion of the proceeds will be returned to MSA.
