Everybody’s Dancin’ in the Streets! At least the incredibly talented dancers of Body Motion Dance Company were. I love working with teams like this who think outside the box and want to change things up. For this dance company, we started on the streets of downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. I love finding ways to use the environment in a street shoot like this. Whether it’s a light pole, a bench, a red brick wall, or even a car, if it’s available, I’m gonna use it baby.

Exchange Place Plaza downtown has this amazing graffiti wall and red brick walls and sidewalks. With the dancers’ red plaid shirts and amazing red shoes, they totally popped with all the color around them! I feel so fortunate to have been able to work with such talented athletes. I mean, look at those lines! Holy Moly!
We didn’t stop there though. To switch things up, we headed to my studio for some incredibly clean, modern shots. We kept the focus on the dancers by using bright, white walls against their black and purple costumes. Again, I love to use my environment so we brought it some unique props. I love the shots with the chairs! I was so glad the dancers from Body Motion Dance Company were willing to let me get a little bit creative. We even created a “cage” for a few funky pictures! The window light created amazing natural lighting that combined with my unique studio lighting techniques and accentuated each girls’ beauty. We used those fabulous windows again for close-up portraits and headshots.
Thank you for checking out this amazing session with Body Motion Dance Company! I want to thank them for trusting me with their team photos this year and I can’t wait to see how much they learn and grow over the next year!
