Andrew Bowen Studios

So Much More Than Just a Photoshoot

At Andrew Bowen Studios, I believe that the creation of dance photography can and should be an experience that builds confidence and helps the dancer grow as an artist.

Welcome to your Creative Dance Retreat — a creative experience that is fun and supportive, focusing on each dancer as a unique artist. I promise that every dancer will receive the agency, respect, support, time, and dedication they deserve to grow as an artist while creating images that reflect their personal style and their technical best.

Andrew Bowen Studios is the studio fully invested in each dancer’s artistic development.

Creativity is an organic process that varies between artists. Whether contemporary dance, commercial dance, or classical ballet, we will work within your creative framework and finesse your ideas until they reflect your unique point of view.

Where are dancers coming from?

You know the song “I’ve Been Everywhere”? Our dancers are helping us fill in our map with so many towns and cities. In our home state of North Carolina, we have dancers from Advance, Asheville, Burlington, Cary, Charlotte, Clemmons, Durham, Elon, Gibsonville, Greensboro, Greenville, Henderson, Hickory, High Point, Holly Springs, King, Mooresville, Pinehurst, Raleigh, Summerfield, and Winston-Salem. We aren’t stopping on the state lines, either. We’ve had South Carolina dancers from Charleston, Columbia, Greenville, and Simpsonville create their images with us. Dancers from Savannah and Atlanta, Georgia, have made the trip as well. North of the border, we have retreat alumni from across Virginia, including Fredericksburg, Lexington, Manassas, Radford, Richmond, Roanoke, Virginia Beach, and Williamsburg. Some of our dancers make an even longer trip, coming in from Boise, ID; Denver, CO; Indianapolis, Indiana; Montgomery, AL; New York City, NY; Oklahoma City, OK; Pittsburgh, PA; Sarasota, FL; and Seattle, WA.

Creative Partnerships Benefit our Dancers

Our creative partnerships benefit our dancers in multiple ways. Most obviously, they allow us to have an expanded selection of dancewear and tutus at the studio at all times that everyone can use. Additionally, we have periodic product photoshoots and invite back full-day retreat alumni for modeling.
