Ballerina Photo Shoot
I recently photographed Katie, a young Ballerina from Yate.
Rather than shooting in a studio, we chose a scenic location to shoot, one that could provide creativity and allow us to bring the beauty of ballet outdoors. Location photo shoots like this always gives you something magical and I was excited to create something a little different.
Dance has always been an interest of mine. I used to be a street dance performer and teacher, so I was thrilled to be asked to photograph Katie and her Ballet, to enable us to put two arts together - photography and dance.
The weather had been unpredictable for days before our shoot, with persistent rain and thunderstorms, and even on the morning of our scheduled session it rained and looked like the middle of winter. Even up to the last minute, it was possible we could be rained off and have to reschedule again. But, as it happened, we were blessed with late golden sunlight through the trees and an early summer sunset that gave us the most wonderful light.
Here is one of my favourite photographs from our photo shoot, and I hope you like it also. This location in Bristol offers the most wonderful backdrops.
Katie was so great to work with, and created some spectacular poses. I hope I unleashed her unique personality and translated it into a still image that she will be able to look back on in years to come and remember fondly.
