I have recently been inspired a lot by the portrait paintings from the “Old Masters”, and have spent some time trying to incorporate it into my photography. After much thought , I realised some of the most elegant images I have ever seen are those of ballet dancers, and therefore they would be a good subject for me to try out my “Old Master’s” theme.
I was very fortunate in finding two beautiful Little Ballerinas who wanted to have their portraits taken in their gorgeous tutus – Hannah who is a pupil at the Go Dance Studios in Sleaford, and little Evie, who attends the Danielle Rawlinson School of Dance. Fortunately they were both brimming with ideas for their poses and we had a wonderful time photographing them. I have worked with dancers in the past having been the official photographer for The Small Ballet Company when they toured in this country – my images are on all their publicity material and website.
After taking the photos I then worked a little bit of artistic magic on the images – the results are here. I am thrilled with the response that these images have had amongst the dancers and am looking forward to being able to create many more pieces of art such as these. If you are a dancer, either in ballet or jazz, or tap or any other form , and would like something to really treasure please get in touch. I have some very attractive introductory packages on offer from only £99 but this is only for a limited time!
