GET NOTICED

Choosing the right dance photographer is essential to creating audition portfolios that get you noticed, and scroll-stopping Instagram posts. Dance photography is not taking photos of dancers. Instead, it is a creative relationship between two artists that creates images of both technical excellence and emotional impact. When you leave a dance photoshoot, you should feel like you have performed your best as an artist, creating powerful imagery that highlights your strength and beauty.

We never imagined there would be a professional photographer with the skills to make dancers’ visions come to life right here in Greensboro

“Andrew Bowen is the real deal! We never imagined there would be a professional photographer with the skills to make dancers’ visions come to life right here in Greensboro until we met Andrew. Every step (the pre-planning and exchange of ideas – tour of the studio space – the creative process) were all done with the comfort and input of the dancer as the priority. It all shows in the photographs, and we couldn’t be more happy with the results!” — Noelle B.

BEYOND THE MUNDANE

You should be a part of a creative partnership that will inspire something special that transforms your technical skill into art. It’s never, “A couple of clicks and moving on.” We will review, adjust and dance until your skill and artistry jump off the screen and you say,

I love it !!

He is truly an artist who brings creativity and out-of-the-box thinking to sessions.

“Andrew Bowen is amazing to work with, from his pre-shoot consultations to the beautiful final products. His studio is well-equipped, and he has everything from Gatorade to hairpins… He is a true collaborator who understands dance technique and is committed to creating work that both he and the dancer are proud to share. He is a great photographer, but he is more than that. He is truly an artist who brings creativity and out-of-the-box thinking to sessions. I’m very thankful my daughter had the opportunity to work with him, and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a fabulous dance photographer.” — Laura R.

YOUR ARTISTIC RETREAT

Working with some photographers means following their direction and vision. However, I believe that your inspiration and emotion are the essences of what brings a photograph to life. So, bring your ideas and inspiration, as well as lots of leotards, costumes, and props. I will work with you to craft the images that transform your personal vision into reality. You have a whole studio, a master photographer, and a pile of props and snacks to fuel your imagination!

I would highly recommend booking an artistic collaboration with Andrew Bowen! The session started with a virtual tour of Andrew’s studio to ensure we would be comfortable walking in. We brainstormed a few ideas and packed a bag for a day-long studio session. During the day, my daughter was a co-creator in the photos. As a girl-dad, one of Andrew’s talents is coaching girls to speak up and be a part of the artistic process. We never felt rushed, pressured, or stressed.” — Cyndee W.

CHLOE’S DANCE PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE

THE RESULTS

THE STUDIO FOR DANCE PHOTOGRAPHY

As a dance photographer based in the Triad region of North Carolina, Andrew Bowen Studios serves dancers across the Mid-Atlantic. My studio is situated on a beautiful 2+ acre property with ample wooded, rustic, and manicured spaces for outdoor dance photography (and senior photos) as well as the newly-expanded indoor studio.

Indoor Studio Photography

The indoor photography studio allows us to fully craft the light anyway we want and provides a clean space to create and keep the focus on your form. With nearly 1000 sqft of shooting space, 12-foot ceilings, and over a dozen light heads, there is little we can’t create in this space. The high ceilings provide ample space for jumps and even some lifts.

Most of my dance clients desire the controlled lighting, soft floors, and endless possibilities afforded by indoor studio photography. The uncluttered backgrounds keep the focus on your shape and the fine control of the lighting allows me to shape the image in fine detail.

Outdoor Studio Photography

I use the phrase “Outdoor Studio Photography” very specifically. Even when shooting outside, we use strobes to accent the light mother nature has provided when necessary. A similar approach to light is applied outdoors, to best show your form and create the mood you are looking for.

The outdoor photography studio encompasses over two acres. The back acre is wooded with a stage, shack, custom mural by Jesca Jaymes (a local artist), swing, fence, bridge, and custom ironwork. The front acre has lawns, pine straw, brick paths, hardscaping, and plenty of textured spaces.
