Artistic Dance CollaborativeTM

Andrew Bowen Studios

When two artists collaborate, magic happens

The Artistic Dance CollaborativeTM is an environment where your creative expression and artistic standards are fully supported. Welcome to a world where your voice and your goals are the number one priority! My success comes from partnering with you to realize your vision, cultivate new ideas or approaches, coach your form, and illuminate your best artistry through photography.

No two collaborations are ever the same. The combination of our creative energies is unique to us on this day. So, come with your ideas, wardrobe, props, and sense of adventure; together, we will create the unexpected. Dream, and I’ll do my best to make it a reality. Let your imagination soar!

Relax and be creative

The Artistic Dance Collaborative is designed to have ample time to try out an idea, try some variations, and end up with something uniquely you. I want you to feel free to experiment a bit; not every idea will be gold, but there is value and joy in exploring new concepts and seeing what we discover.

If you don’t love something, even the lighting, speak up, and we will develop a different approach. You have full veto power, and only the images you approve will be released.

Above all, Artistic Dance Collaborative is a celebration of YOU as an artist. The many hours, sore muscles, and emotional highs and lows have combined to make you the dancer you are today. It is time to turn all of that experience into stunning photographs you’ll cherish forever.

So much more than a photo shoot…

“This shoot was such a positive experience for me. I had never had my dancing photographed by a professional before, but I’m so glad that I did. I got so many shots that I’m so happy with and a great workout in the process. I had so much fun and came out feeling so happy.”

The Artistic Dance Collaborative is about so much more than incredible photography. Regardless of age and ability, you will become more aware of your movement, how the camera sees you, and how to bring everything together in a split-second that blows you away. My goal for you as an artist is to strive for a vision and succeed spectacularly. You will leave physically exhausted but emotionally full from a sense of accomplishment and elevated self-esteem as an artist. All the while, you had a blast and made great memories.

“His work is incredible. He connected in such a way with my daughter while doing the photoshoot which created the perfect combination of movement and emotion. He captured the best of her work and more. As a person he is kind, smart, warm and so easy to get along with; and as a professional, he is just on another level. His talent is amazing, and together with his hard work, he is able to deliver an exceptional result.”

“In this time, and in this place, I want you to be unforgivably yourself: full of flaws, beauty, chaos, and imperfection. For these are the things that make you real…”
