I was asked by art director Scott McKowen to take a photograph of a donkey for Theatre Calgary’s upcoming production of Midsummer Night’s Dream. Who would have thought an hour away from where I was working at the Shaw Festival there was a donkey farm.
Meet Bob Ray who was our model.
We were lucky to get a fearless Toronto actress by the name of Alexandra Ordolis who managed to cuttle with our donkey for two hours. Here’s Scott’s sketch for the final poster.
We had a few lucky frames that were at the end of the shoot when they both seemed in love!
