Attention young, hip, creative-types of Denver! Need a photo to help launch your musical, acting, fashion, artistic, writing, dancing and/or modeling career? Look no further than local scenesterette Sarah Cass. The 21-year-old photographer from Grand Junction has been building quite a portfolio as of late by snapping promo pics for the likes of the Hot IQs, Ian Cooke, Morning After Record’s Dan Rutherford, and artist Justin Simoni. But more than the standard sullen-on-the-railroad-tracks portraits or Glamour Shots style glossies that usually accompany press packets, Cass’s images feature uninhibited shocks of color and playful compositions that give the subjects weight without being overly serious.
