Being a musician myself, I enjoy photographing other musicians. I believe this is the first solo portrait that I have taken of a bassoonist. Here are a few of the favorite poses from a recent sitting that I did of Asha Kline. Asha is one of this year’s winners in the Columbia Orchestra Young Artist Competition. As she talked about the challenges of making reeds; it brought back memories of my days with the United States Army Field Band and conversations I had with double reed instrumentalists and their issues making double reeds.
