Duo Dancers Tia & Amelia

A few of the duo images we shot when dancers Tia and Amelia were in studio.

Coming from a fight photography background, I have developed my technique to capture rapidly moving subjects at high speed in front of the lens. The resulting instinct for timing fight photography has lead to an ability to capture my subjects at the peak of their motion.

Dance Session with Amelia

I had a great dance photo shoot with Amelia. She really hit her moves beautifully. She even teamed up with Tia for some duo images.

Dance Shoot with Tia

I did a shoot with Tia, a very powerful and graceful dancer. She is able to jump very well. I had a blast working with her and we made some striking images.

Ballet in the Fog with Nicolette

I did a ballet photo shoot with Nicolette out of Step Above Dance. Nicolette was referred to me by a mutual model friend of ours. Nicolette came in and really killed it. We setup the fog machine to do a series of backlit shapes, jumps and poses. Here are a few of the best ones.

Ill at Will in the Studio

I had a couple of members of the Ill at Will B-Boy crew into the studio last night. The crew has been active for the last 10 years. Rob and Jim were on set and really impressed me with their moves, made much more difficult by me asking them to hold the longer for pictures. Both guys were repping their clothing line Stay Hungry, Stay Humble.

Here's a few early edits from the shoot.

Group Dance Shoot - Sneak Peek

I had a group of six dancers in the studio on Sunday. We had pizza, took some pictures and at one point had an impromptu musical break out. It was a whirlwind 4 hour shoot that got so many good images. Thanks to my assistant for the day Wendy Blang. Here's a sneak peek at some of the pictures.

Dance Photoshoot with Montanah and Celeste

Montanah and Celeste came to the studio to show off their dance moves. I wasn't sure what to expect vis-a-vis their skill and power. I was really impressed with both. Their jumps were high, poses graceful, holds powerful and aerials amazing.

I cranked the lights to a really short flash duraction of 1/4400th of a second to freeze the motion.

They had some really strong duo poses

Perfect form on being upside down.

They were competitive as to who got the best air
