One fun moment in every show is when you get to take the publicity photos. Usually it is the first time that members of the cast get into full costume, make-up, and hair and fully create their characters for others. It is also a chance for the director to find that one image that effectively conveys the mood, message, and style of the show to the audience.

For Princess Academy, director Megan Sanborn Jones wanted to concentrate on 3 things:

1. The Academy girls

2. The books

3. The mountain

As Shannon Hale has stated that one of her major influences in creating Mt. Eskel was our very own Wasatch mountains, we decided to gather the girls and their books and head up Provo Canyon.


This girls eagerly headed up to our final destination:

Many minds (including photographer Mark Philbrick) collaborated together to get the perfect shot:

To create the magic of our final shot, our prop designer (Scott Jackson) took some extra shots of the books flying through the air:

Eventually, it all came together!
