Kerryanne Warne was a dream to work with on her audition photographs. Graduating from Ballet West in Scotland, she knew her body and the movements that suited her the most. She came with a collection of photographs that she wanted to achieve from her audition photo shoo, which we got in the bag very quickly and then moved onto some ideas that I came up with for her. Kerryanne doesn’t want to limit her auditions to only ballet companies and so we agreed to allow some time for contemporary and Jazz/hiphop photographs too. Her photo shoot lasted about three hours and we were able to achieve a very strong portfolio for her to take forward into her upcoming auditions.
It is always very difficult to find a photographer who understands how to take a good dance photograph that will help the applicant stand out in the stack of applications a director of a school or company will be looking through. This is something that after 10 years as a professional ballet dancer I can understand and really help to get you noticed for the right reasons. I have been fortunate enough to have won awards for my dance photography but it is always down to the person in the photograph as they make the picture that I capture. I love working with up and coming dancers and so if you are looking at auditioning for school’s or companies please visit my dance school page and get in touch to check on my availability. It would be lovely to hear from you.
