As you may already know, I have been working on lots of exciting Dance Photography shoots recently.
I think dance photography is like art. I love capturing the movements and poses of a dancer, as they allow me to create images that are truly unique and beautiful. No two shoots are the same. The poses of some dancers are graceful and elegant, others are strong and powerful. This means that the possibilities for me, as a photographer, are endless!
Due to recent events regarding Covid-19, I’ve had to postpone a lot of my shoots, including my mini shoots at CAN YOU DANCE. While this is disappointing, I’m taking this time to hone my craft and look back on some of favourite dance shoots.
Last year I worked with Squad Dancewear to shoot their clothing range. The shoot involved The Greatest Dancer winner Ellie Ferguson, as well as other talented dancers Rory McLeod, Grace Watt and Emma Kennedy from Edinburgh Dance Academy.
For this shoot, I used techniques that I learned at Rachel Neville’s Dance Photography workshop. We shot a series of group and singular poses against the stunning backdrops of the Meadows, Holyrood Park and the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh.
Squad used the images to promote the range on Instagram and their website. It’s always so much fun working with the team there so be sure to follow both them and myself to see that and any future work.
Another exciting shoot I worked on recently was with the talented Jorgia to promote the Grishko Dance clothing. Jorgia is a rising star who has studied with the Royal Ballet School and Ballet West Scotland. I used Rachel Neville’s teaching and Jorgia’s expertise to create a series of stunning images that focused on her dance techniques. Hopefully you agree that they truly display the beauty of her talent!
Looking back at these shoots is so much fun and really gets me excited for getting back to business when things go back to normal. In the meantime, I hope that you’re staying safe and I’ll see you back here soon for new Dance Photography chat and more!
