Dance photography is my vocation. Ever since I first photographed dance, I have been passionate about capturing its elegance, energy and mystery.
But I still occasionally do other kind of photography.
Although it is always a great opportunity to photograph opening nights, shoot dress rehearsals, capture dance competitions like the IMA’s European Championship or the IDO's Championship, I take slightly greater satisfaction in crafting professional photographs shot offstage, during rehearsals, at the dancer’s favourite place etc. It gives me an otherwise impossible opportunity. It allows me to learn something real about the person I photograph. It may seem unnecessary but to me it's substantial in a way similar to reading a light meter.
Although I‘m passionate about photography, I haven’t yet fully committed myself to a photographic career. This means I can afford to shoot some interesting projects just for the love of it.
Write and tell me about your idea and don’t hesitate to take this opportunity.
