Happy Monday everyone! For the next few days I’ll be posting some rehearsal images I shot with Ballet Central down in that there London.
So, recently I was given the opportunity to go into the rehearsal room with @_Ballet_Central_, as they prepared for their upcoming tour across the UK. I love shooting rehearsals, and instead of the ‘standard’ rehearsal shots of dancers doing amazing moves, I try to offer a perspective of the dancers and the process that you just don’t see when watching the finished project. I get close, I focus on details, and I’m always looking for these tiny moments that tell us far more about the dancer and the company than a perfectly executed grand jeté ever could. I always feel very fortunate when I’m asked in to shoot rehearsals, as there’s always a tremendous amount of trust that’s being placed on me. I’m being asked in to the inner sanctum - a special place, where the work is often being made right in front of my eyes - and sometimes even the tiniest distraction (like the click of a shutter) can ruin a creative flow. The way I shoot is quite a delicate process, but fundamentally it’s born out of a feeling of empathy, and mutual trust. Hopefully that gives you a tiny bit of insight into the way I work - I’ll be expanding a little bit tomorrow, and if you have any questions or comments, feel free to pop them below.
ps. Thanks to Jenna, Chris, and the rest of the team and dancers for inviting me in!
