With over 20 years of experience, shooting thousands of dancers and dance companies, Rachel founded Rachel Neville Studios as her dedication to the dance world, and her commitment to supporting wellness and sustainability of each and every individual dancer and dance company that we work with, and thus the dance world at large.

The paintbrush to her canvas lies in Rachel’s proprietary method of shooting dancers that she developed over the past 2 decades that she now teaches to photographers across the globe.  The Neville Method ®  is a unique way of coaching dancers and finessing lighting patterns that accurately converts the 3 dimensional movement of dance into the 2 dimensional space of a print or screen.

Audition Photoshoots

85% of our clients get into the auditions of their choice

100% of our clients come away with a renewed sense of confidence, empowerment and excitement about their future.

Creative Photoshoots

The art we create together truly thrives in the spirit of collaboration. Creativity is the muscle, the dancer the muse

Dance Is Who We Are
Photography Is What We Do


The studio’s creative process begins and ends with the dancer’s confidence and wellbeing at its heart. A focus on showcasing lines, energy and technique to their fullest, before considering additional elements in an image is a must. Once this becomes muscle memory for a dancer, the creative juices flow freely!

"I cannot thank you enough for the incredible experience shooting with you. Your knowledge, eye, and attention to detail are unparalleled. When you see the world's best dancers come through your studio, at the peak of their prowess, doing shoots with newbies is just not the same. But you made my experience such a positive one and your advice is worth so much to me as I begin my journey in NYC."
