I had the privilege of photographing the professional dancers of the Greensboro Ballet. Each of these talented, athletic, artistic and wonderful human beings was a pleasure to get to know and to create with. A dance shoot is hard work. Each dancer spent about 90 minutes in the studio with the artistic ballet directors and myself creating these images. Some of the creations happened rapidly, others took a few takes to correct nuances that didn't photograph as well or home in on the timing for transitional poses. By the end of each series, they had a very complete workout.
This series is in casual dance wear, no costuming. That work will be released soon, so be sure to check back!
In the meantime, enjoy a further sampling of the artistic grace, power and control of Elisa, Jessica, Kira, Kevin, Lauren, Nicholas, and Wesley.
