Dance school shows, acting,
musical theatre & performance photography
An efficient service, photographing your performers.
Many schools use our services at the dress rehearsal where we can take perfectly lit shots of the individual dancers and groups, which can be used for the programme and available for parents to view both in displays at the school/show and on password secure online gallery.
Having a background in graphic design has allowed me to produce beautiful poster size prints from the shows, these are very popular with parents and dance schools for their walls.
Dance is not like other performance photography, you need an understanding and flair to get the best from the various disciplines of dance, from ballet to tap, you need to know the dancers moves!!...
Detail is everything and dance schools throughout the UK, trust and rely on
on me, year on year to provide the very best service possible.
I offer a FULL range of options to allow you to choose which is the best for your event.
I can provide a small studio with the best lighting equipment and various background options, and along with the latest professional lab printers for my on-site printing -
Some photographers state that "It is totally impossible to provide high-quality prints on the day", this is nonsense, and usually means they have either a lack of skills or have not got correct equipment to produce quality work on-site, obviously this does not apply to live-action photography where there is simply not enough time. Alternative is...
We capture all the action of the dance and have many alternative ways of providing parents with photographs either by a password protected gallery, or a download option which includes supplying ALL the images on a personal gallery. I have years of experience within the design and image-making industry, retouching and working with photographic images at the highest level.. I am a full-time professional photographer, not a 'weekend warrior'
Live-action photography is right for some events, but not for all, you have no real control over stage lighting whereas a mini studio can get the very best from all the costume detail as well as the most flattering lighting on faces.
The advantage of using my service is that all options are available to you.
PLEASE NOTE: Dance shows and other dance events will be deleted from all sources and backups five years from creation date in accordance with GDPR rules.
Sometimes there is a need to have two photographers to successfully cover an event, I work closely with another dance photographer Ashley Holmes. More and more we are working together on many events and projects. We also cover for one another when it's a busy time of the year or in case of illness, we will not let you down. Ashley is one of the best dance photographers around and his work and style compliments mine, his dedication to providing parents with the very best images is second to none.
