I had the good fortune to work with the dancers at Academie de Ballet Classique (ABC) this summer to create some great portraits for their production of the classic Peter & the Wolf. I spent the day shooting portraits of all the dancers (from pre-school age on up) at the ABC studio. A few weeks later I was also able to meet up with the 2 of the lead dancers-Peter (Kendra K.) and the Wolf (Lauren W,) in Sisters, where we did an outdoor shoot in the woods. Lauren and Kendra were such great sports trouncing through the forest–even with Lauren’s sore knee– letting me set them up on some precarious places. I hope you all enjoy viewing these pictures as much as I enjoyed creating them.

Here are some highlights from the actual show and recital that I shot as well.
I also want to give out a huge thanks to Valerie H. (owner of ABC) for allowing me to be able to capture the memories for the dancers and to Deborah W. for helping with the logistics and transport for the dancers in Sisters–and for playing the part of my VALS (voice activated light stand).
