Greetings from Park City! This week, Team InStyle has descended on the snowy town for the annual Sundance Film Festival. It’s always a special time here during Sundance because Hollywood’s hottest are shoulder-to-shoulder with the coolest up-and-comers for one goal—to generate buzz for their indie flicks. And we’re here to document it all at our pop-up portrait studio at the Grey Goose Blue Door Lounge in the heart of Main Street.

All the stars are swinging by to give us the scoop on their projects, and Aussie photographer Christopher Ferguson is behind the lens, snapping shots of all the stars, from Nicole Kidman to Keanu Reeves to Ethan Hawke. And while the big names always create a fun experience inside our studio, Ferguson is most excited to discover the new talented stars on the cusps of their big breaks. “It creates a whole new energy inside the studio,” said the photographer. “You can feel the excitement they have. They enjoy getting interviewed, they enjoy getting their picture taken. It’s the new part of the journey, and I love being a part of that.”

Sundance is all about the energy. Click through the gallery to see who’s stopped by so far.
