Project – Isolate

What Is Isolate?

Isolate is a collaborative photographic project that incorporates dancers and barren landscapes to create imagery that evokes emotions of serenity and awe. 

Why Did I Choose this Project?

I am always looking to push myself to grow as a photographer, and I knew creating a project which focused on specific aspects of composition such as the use of negative space would be a great way of challenging myself. I wanted to push myself to generate a set of dance images that were unique and inspiring.

What Happens on the Shoot?

Like any of my creative projects, Isolate is a real collaboration. I trust the dancer, explicitly, to create beautiful body movements that fit in with the narrative. In turn, while acknowledging my five years experience in dance photography, I ask the dancer to trust me when I tweak certain aspects of a pose to make something more appealing in camera.

As well as an elegant form, I am always focusing on the dancer’s facial expressions to help eradicate tension. A beautiful pose will never redeem an image when the dancer has an appearance of strain. 

Where Do the Shoots Take Place?

At the moment, the shoots are taking place on a quiet beach as this is a perfect setting to find featureless scenes with a reduced chance of human interaction.

Special Thanks

I want to extend a special thank you to the amazing dancers who have helped me so far. To the future dancers who I have yet to work with, I cannot wait to meet you!

The Beach Sessions

Although Isolate is an ongoing personal project, due to the interest from dancers of various ages and experience levels, I have created a spin-off dance photoshoot package called The Beach Sessions.

If you are interested in The Beach Sessions package, please feel free to contact me.
