MOVING YOUR DANCE FORWARD
Dance photography is so much more than taking photos of dancers. It is a creative relationship between two artists that creates images with both technical excellence and emotional impact.
Choosing the right dance photographer to be your partner is essential to creating audition portfolios that get you noticed, and scroll-stopping Instagram posts.
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…Noelle B.
YOUR CREATIVE RETREAT
You are part of a creative partnership that will inspire something special that transforms your technical skill into art.
This is your safe space. Feel free to experiment with a new look or an idea, knowing that images that don’t measure up to your standards will NEVER be seen by anyone else.
I believe that your authenticity, inspiration, and emotion are the collective essence of what brings a photograph to life. So, bring your dreams 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.

BEYOND THE MUNDANE
This is your space to try ideas, make adjustments, fail without consequence, and wildly succeed. You have a whole studio, a master photographer, and a pile of props and snacks to fuel your imagination!
We also have time. Having the time to consider something new, or view it in a different way is an integral part of the creative dance retreat. I encourage you to explore a new idea or two, and hopefully amaze yourself and create dance photography that makes you say,
I love it !!

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.
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. While some dance clients utilize this space for outdoor dance photography, it gets more use with my high school senior photography and some professional headshots.
