Creative Dance Photography Takes Your Portfolio to New Heights

Your dancing career is likely not a straight line. Neither should your creative dance photography be. We work with each dancer to understand where they are in their path and translate it into a creative shoot with diverse options to celebrate talent, strength, individuality, and set your  portfolio apart.

Inspiration For Your Aspirations

Sometimes clients come to us with a creative photoshoot theme or idea already in their heads. Other times, dancers know they want to create something unique and stand out but aren’t sure where to start. Whether you come to us with a concept or not, our planning process and attention to detail during our creative shoots will ensure you walk away with amazing and unique images!

Inspirational storytelling through dance comes from many places. From pop culture references to modern interpretations of classic ballets, art, or other concepts, we’ve created some compelling images. Our creative dance photography helps you tell your story!

What To Expect

When you book a session with 530, we reserve the entire day and studio for you. During this time, our photographer and movement director will coach you through the poses that meet your goals. After your session, you’ll receive a Proof gallery of your photos. Each selected image will be edited and fine-tuned so you can take your career to new heights

A Lesson In Unlearning

As a master of this art, you’ve been trained to precisely execute certain angles and poses that are technically accurate to the eye. Dancing for the camera is different from the studio or stage. Playing to the audience of this 2D image means technical things shift, and the correct can look incorrect (and vice versa). Certain adjustments we ask you to make might feel awkward or unnatural at first, but when you see the results, the improvement is easily noticeable. It’s often this fine-tuning that helps us achieve what is not only usable but what is the peak of your ability as a dancer. Because we work with two art forms—dance and photography—we have to create a partnership between them in order to create together.

Dancer Safety is Our Top Priority

Dance is more than your career; it’s your life. We will never sacrifice safety for our creative dance photography. We do this first and foremost by maintaining open communication during the entire process. Additionally, our sprung dance floor was specially designed for dancers to absorb the impact of your movements and allow you to safely perform at your highest ability. And, because we reserve an entire day, we encourage as many breaks for stretches and refueling as you need.

Creative Dance Photography for Diverse Options

It’s difficult to translate the emotive power of dance into a still shot. But it’s in this intersection of motion and still photography that we thrive, translating your artform into images for your audiences to see. We work with our clients to create dance photos that showcase their raw talent, experience, and the powerful art they create with their bodies.
