Dance Performance Photography

Dance performance photography involves a great deal of skill from the photographer. Not only does the photographer need to understand lighting in low light situations, but also have knowledge of dance movement vocabulary.

Julie Hopkins, the photographer, passed 13 years of her life as a professional ballet dancer in companies such as Los Angeles Ballet, Zurich Ballet and Monte Carlo Ballet. With her arsonal of knowledge in both photography and dance, Julie is the perfect candidate for photographing the ephemeral artform of dance.

Julie can attend rehearsals, dress rehearsals and performance to compile a documentary style collection of images for the dance company, dance television show, or dance school performance. Images can be used for newspaper, advertising brochures, posters for performance venues with proper credit to the photographer.
