Conan Backstage

After the show in San Francisco, we had the honor of being asked backstage.

It was unreal. He is honestly one of the nicest people I've ever met. A few minutes afer he walked in, I handed him a framed version of the picture I took of him when he was at ILM. (the one of him and ET). He honestly loved it!

 

We headed out to the stage for a group shot after a few minutes of joking around in the tiny dressing room. I just kept rolling film the entire time.

 

It was all over in a matter of 30 minutes..and in the end, had me and Conan talking Leica again before he headed off to peel 9 pounds of makeup off.

    I've really grown to love O'Brien's work over the years. I think he'll really hit his stride when he takes over the reins of The Tonight Show in a couple of years when Leno steps down...
  • Lee Davenport 8y

    Great expression and the adoring fans in the mirror are cool too.
