The most important image you will have as a Performing Artist

As a former entertainment agent of 20 years standing, believe me when I say:

Bad publicity:

It closes doors, it puts bookers off, can give the impression you don’t care about the show, it will lose you work and therefore it will lose you money. I’ve seen bookings get cancelled because of the publicity sent to venues.

Good Publicity:

Opens doors, it gets bookers interested in your show, it shows pride in your appearance, it looks professional, and will increase your confidence & your income.

Drag Queen Publicity Photoshoot

In recent years, the popularity of drag queens has experienced a remarkable surge, captivating audiences worldwide with their unique blend of creativity, talent, and empowerment. Drag, once considered a niche subculture, has evolved into a mainstream phenomenon, thanks to the widespread acceptance and celebration of diverse gender expressions.

At Atherton Photography Studio, I recognize the significance of capturing the essence of drag culture through my lens. The artistry and self-expression displayed by drag queens have become a focal point in contemporary conversations surrounding identity and acceptance. Drag performances, known for their flamboyant costumes, impeccable makeup, and captivating stage presence, have become a source of inspiration and empowerment for individuals across the spectrum of gender and sexual orientation.

Social media platforms have played a pivotal role in propelling drag queens into the spotlight, providing a global stage for performers to showcase their talent and connect with a diverse audience. The viral nature of drag content has not only contributed to the mainstream visibility of drag culture but has also fostered a sense of community among fans and performers alike. This interconnectedness has facilitated the sharing of stories and experiences, fostering a more inclusive and understanding society.

Beyond the glitter and glamour, drag queens often use their platform to advocate for social justice and equality. Many queens use their visibility to address issues such as LGBTQ+ rights, diversity, and body positivity. This activism has further endeared them to audiences seeking representation and role models who challenge societal norms.

Drag performances are no longer confined to traditional venues; they have infiltrated mainstream entertainment, with drag queens becoming fixtures in television shows, movies, and fashion events. This integration has not only diversified the entertainment landscape but has also contributed to a broader cultural shift toward embracing individuality and breaking down societal barriers.

In conclusion, the popularity of drag queens is a testament to the evolving cultural landscape, where diversity and self-expression are celebrated. As a photographer, I am committed to capturing the vibrancy and authenticity of drag culture, recognizing its profound impact on shaping a more inclusive and accepting society. Through my lens at Atherton Photography Studio, I aim to contribute to the ongoing narrative of empowerment and creativity that drag queens bring to the forefront of popular culture.
