… got talent?

The assignment was to photograph Peter and Jennifer Jones of StarStruck Performing Arts Center in Stuart, FL for the cover of the latest edition of Martin Arts Magazine. Peter and Jennifer own and operate StarStruck with a vision of fostering the love of musical theatre. Their work touches and enhances the lives of so many people in our community. Their productions and performing arts training classes are very popular and really top notch. So if you want to talk about talent, they have it, and they share it…

They recently moved into the former Palm Beach Post building, and have renovated 12,000 square feet to house a new performance theatre and workshop space for their many programs.

Coffee break outtake…

It was nice to spend some time with Peter and Jennifer and get to know them better. What a wonderful relationship they have, their mutual love and affection for each other is obvious and refreshing….

Here are some of the final shots…


…and my favorite…

I love the new studio and looking forward to seeing many productions of StarStruck and other performing arts in this community.
We are very fortunate to have people like Jennifer & Peter giving our young people an early education in the arts.
Thanks for the great job you do to educate us in the community,
