To be a photographer of ballet/dance there has to be passion about this absorbing subject.   The high level of performance in the 21st century demands focus, and hard work!  As a camera artist, I approach all my subjects with complete sincerity.     

An official photographer for the UK’s leading dance magazine, DANCING TIMES, choreographers and dancers range from pure classical ballet, contemporary, experimental, folkloric.  Each choreographer creates an image with his/or her dancers – a photograph has to capture that in a shutter second. 

As a trained dancer myself, their world is still as fascinating. My  published  work includes  IREK MUKHAMEDOV, THE AUTHORISED  BIOGRAPHY  (Jeffery Taylor) and NINA ANANIASHVILI – the official book published by the Ministry of Culture, Tbilisi, Georgia.  

The companies and dancers covered are worldwide, including Royal Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet, Mariinsky, English National Ballet, Rambert, Richard Alston Dancers, Akram Khan, Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures, etc. 

All work is available to Photo Desk Editors of newspapers,  magazines for publicity and editorial coverage of the productions photographed.     Commissions for publicity and marketing are welcome.
