Ballet in the Flats
I met Jessica through North Pointe Ballet and this Spring we met up to do a session away from the performance stage and in the streets of downtown Cleveland. It was a pretty chilly evening when we met on the East Bank of the Flats for our session but the sun was shining! We managed to only shiver in between photos!
The Nutcracker Ballet
I was very fortunate to get the opportunity to photography the Nutcracker Ballet as performed by North Pointe Ballet. I started early during their warm-ups and then was given access to go anywhere on stage as they ran a full costume dress rehearsal of the show from beginning to end. Here are just a few of my favorite images! ...
I headed down to Akron for dance session a few weeks back with Kristi. It was a chance to get into a new location to shoot and that always leads to a bit of creativity compared to the places you know well. We had a great time walking around the city and found a some cool spots to capture some photos.
There have been a lot of city sessions lately so how about some beach dancing? Jessica is a dance major getting ready to finish up her academic career and move into the entertainment industry. I'm sure she'll be very successful! For this session we met at Mentor Headlands State Park. Lake Erie was a little too rough to get in b ...
Ballerina in Cleveland
This is what you get when you put a ballerina in Cleveland! Leah is an amazing dancer and is only 13 years old! I can't wait to see what she does with her art as she grows.
Taylor Dances in Cleveland
Taylor dances in Cleveland in this post of images. She is another of the fantastic instructors at Dance Studio M. As usual for me, it was a just a walk through the city and picking out the spots that looked interesting in the moment. Made a lot of great images!
Jen is another instructor that I worked with to create some great dance photography. We got together in downtown Cleveland and walked a few blocks. Ducking into some interesting alleys and side streets to make some great ph otos!
Dance in Cleveland
Michelle is the owner and one of the instructors at Dance Studio M in Solon and I met with her and a few others from her studio to dance in Cleveland a few weeks ago. I never have much of a plan for these sessions. It's a bit of seeing how people dance then playing off the landscape around us - the buildings, alleys - and blendin ...
Ballet Photography in Cleveland
If there is one thing I want to do as much of as possible, it would be ballet photography in Cleveland. Taking talented dancers into the city and making wonderful images with them like I did a few weeks ago with Abby.
I met Abby when she danced the Nutcracker with the Cleveland Ballet Company. After a taking her picture in cos ...
Dance Ballet in the City
I had a free morning in Washington, DC about a week ago and put out a blast on social media to see if I could find someone to dance ballet in the city for me. My calls were answered and on a brisk Spring morning I met up with Barri to explore a bit. We started at the City Center shopping area and found this wonderful background o ...
These is another two of the tiny dancers that were in the dance class/recital shoot I did about two weeks ago.
