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!
Cleveland Contemporary Dance
Bryant is a dancer relatively new to the Cleveland area. He reached out to me about updating some shots for his portfolio after seeing some images I made for a friend of his. We met earlier this year on a day that we thought was warm, but really, how warm is it in March?
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! ...
Trevor Dancing in Cleveland
I came across a social media post that mentioned Trevor dancing in Cleveland a few weekends ago. A couple messages later and we had scheduled a session in downtown. With a new dancer, I also took a new direction and walked west for a change from Public Square. It was a great night and the photos are really solid.
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!
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 ...
Fields and Flowers
I usually ask all my clients if they like fields and flower or urban cities and concrete. Ellie said both. So both is what we did for her Senior Portraits earlier this fall. Ellie is also a dancer. Her older brother was one of my daughter's tap dance instructors. So dance runs in the family. After leaving the fields, we headed into ...
Olivia at Squire’s Castle
This young lady, Olivia, is dancer with my daughter. This week she's living it big out in LA taking part in some workshops, but last weekend we got together to take some fun photos and get some portraits she can use as head shots.
We worked our way around the grounds at Squire's Castle. Avoiding a wedding and family portrait s ...
Going to the River
"We're going to the river to dance", I said.
I'll try not to go on and on about these photos. Not that I'm all that verbose anyhow, but these are a little different. They are portraits of my daughter. She loves to dance. It's probably the only thing she knows how to do. By that I mean, if you asked her what she would do if ...
Rachel is a ballerina. A dancer. It's what she does and she does it well. I see get to watch her every week because she is also one of the senior students at the studio my daughter dances at. She's a Senior at Lake Catholic too. A while back we met at my studio to make a series of photos that would be her High School Senior Po ...
