I have had the opportunity to work with a lot of established as well as up and coming models as a Detroit model photographer. I love having the opportunity to collaborate with a group of talented individuals to create something special that will truly stand out in a model portfolio. Along those lines, the photo shoots I enjoy most are the ones where I have total "lighting freedom" am able to bring an edgy, moody feel to the session.
To capture great images, it is critical to work with a GREAT TEAM! The ballet dancer model photo shoot images below would not have been possible if everyone involved was not on their A game … especially the incredible model! Regardless of a model’s professional photo shoot experience, not everyone is physically capable of performing as a ballet dancer. It took years of training to hold these poses!
Model: Dee Evasic
Hair Stylist: Ashley Malinowski
Makeup: Cristina Gherghinis
Photography: Paul Manoian
By keeping the lighting simple for this ballet dancer model photo session, I was able to capture some incredible shots with very dramatic lighting. I only used two Elinchrom soft boxes for this series of photos. I absolutely love these images and it was very difficult to only select a few for this blog post.
If you are a ballet dancer in Metro Detroit and looking for a model photographer to help build out your model or ballet portfolio, I would love to have the opportunity to work with you. Please contact me online or call 313-883-9500 for additional information.
