Here’s a collection of images from a test shoot with a local young dancer trying to find new ways to capture motion. The shots were made by combining a slow exposure (shutter drag) with a quick flash to freeze one image over motion blur.
Another project with long term collaborators Lila Dance, creating concept images for their new dance work The Hotel Experience.
Was a great pleasure to collaborate with Luka Brown on some concept images for his new show The Dandelion Child. We played with colours and textures to enrich the images with a flavour of the show.
I’ve been working with Lila Dance again over the last few months on a new immersive dance performance called The Hotel Experience. Here are some shots from my photoshoot with them in the Creation Space at The Point. I love dance photography and when it is always interesting to try to capture the themes of the show in photoshoot. One of my key aims was to use flash photography to freeze moments in time or motion, illustrating how the hotel is a place of transition. The show has a magical element to it, that the hotel itself feels somehow alive, and i’ve tried to show this through the surreal look of bodies floating above the bed.
