Photographers tend to ‘wax lyrical’ about their dance portfolios and really, it all tends to sound the same. It’s difficult to tell from the marketing ‘blurb’ what a photographer’s capability really is when it comes to photographing dancers. Well, don’t take my word for it... Victoria Marr, enjoyed a distinguished 17 years career with Birmingham Royal Ballet, dancing principal roles all over the world. It’s hard to imagine someone more qualified to comment on the merits of a dance photographer. She said…
When you combine this with a head full of creative ideas and an abundance of contagious energy brought to each shoot; then you have a great photographer to work with."
There’s more to it than that but we don’t want to give it all away here…suffice to say that typically, dancers leave our shoots on a high!
