I'm a Salt Lake City photographer focusing on dance and movement-based photography for dancers and commercial clients.
A love of dance came first, when at age three, I decided my future career would be in ballet. I've been dancing ever since. Photography came a few years later when I got my first camera at seven years old. I was fascinated at the process and complexity behind the simple click of a button, and pored over the prints my mom would develop and share with me.
I can’t remember a time when dance and photography weren't in my life, so photographing dance and movement feels like the most natural culmination of both worlds.
My experience with dance allows me to position and depict dancers in a technically correct manner, and more importantly, has left me with a deep understanding of the inner emotional journey of a dancer: I know what it's like to feel the thrill of performance, the frustration of limitations, and the crushing beauty of it all.
I work with dancers individually to capture them in the prime of their craft, and commercially to capture movement and dance for advertising and brands.
I'm available locally and nationwide. Contact me to discuss how we can work together.
