Dance Photography Workshop Reviews

We just wrapped up our first group photography workshop for dance photographers this past weekend, and I can truly say that  I think we all had such a wonderful time!

Eight photographers from all over the country traveled to NYC to cover a comprehensive topic list focused on shooting and building their businesses around dance photography.  The dancers we worked with were not only awesome to work with but generous with their feedback.  Workshop participants quickly became a close knit group, helping each other out and learning from each other’s questions.

The first day we saturated our photographers with information and some test shooting.  The second day, we worked hard to have everyone think beyond their comfort zones, experiment with different lighting patterns, and shoot in new and creative ways.  Some of the photographers who attended our workshop were used to studio equipment.  For others, it was their first time playing with it.  All came away with an image or two that they (and I) could be proud of!
I want to take a moment to thank all who were involved in our dance photography workshop.  To the dancers, you were all wonderful!  To the participants, I thank you for your excellent questions, your ability to take in a huge amount of information in one weekend, and for your passion for our art.  I also want to thank Anna, my studio manager, for organizing, and Lydia, our intern, for keeping things running smoothly.

We all had such a great time that we have decided to run a Round Two within the year!
We’re already getting some wonderful reviews from photographers who attended the workshop.
“Easily it was one of the most rewarding experiences I have had yet. The environment was really inviting, I learned a ton about dance photography, and made some really great friends. Overall a great experience.
Probably the most inspiring thing I saw was how genuine you were and ready to share what you knew with other photographers with the intent of helping us succeed and us helping more dancers succeed. There should be more people like you!”
Emily Northrop, Photographer and Workshop Participant
“What a pleasure meeting you, seeing your space and hearing your expertise!  I can honestly say I am inspired to be a better business woman and a more confident creative photographer.
Thank you again! I loved it!”
– Heather Sachleben, Heather Renee Photography and Workshop Participant
