It's a great photographic experience being part of Still Moving and Your Move at Siobhan Davies Dance.
Big Dance 2012 is accumulating a database of photos that celebrates the diversity of movement in our lives.
Why don't you take part?
I have a selection of photos from my Vinyl Replay project, spinning vinyl in public and private.
Still Moving also allows us to work with established dance photographer Pari Naderi. The course includes group sessions, mentoring, and photoshoot opportunities. We've just been photographing the rehearsals of The Bridge by Janine Harrington. Looking forward to this large scale interactive choreography that takes place across the length of the Millennium Bridge on the 23rd June 2012 from 2-8pm. Fingers crossed for the weather.
This is my first visit to Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. It's a resplendent building framed by sculptural green edges next to the River Thames.
I'm a reasonably experienced photographer, but it's still a challenge to capture the heart and soul of dance and dancers. Not having access to a digital SLR, I'm working around the Canon G9 and utilising some of the techniques (long exposure, moving camera) used for Vinyl Replay.
