Photography, Dance, Collaboration – Workshop

Join me Saturday Sept 16 for this unique, exciting workshop. Photography, Dance, and Collaboration!  Its no secret, I love photographing dance, but its not just taking the pictures, what I love is collaborating with a dancer/performer to create something spectacular, not just one image but a series, a story.  This is a hands on workshop, talking technical, be matched with a performer, brainstorm an idea together and then make it happen, all in one day.

I’m thrilled to announce that our dancers will be the artists from Modus Operandi – Vancouver Contemporary Dance Program. I have had the honour of working with MO for many years, these artists are absolutely incredible. They will be participating in the entire day, learning with us! Check the program here: 


We talk technical, gear, (lenses, camera, shutter speed, depth of field)
We have a guest performer speaking about creating movement for camera
Lets talk idea’s, finding your voice when working in collaboration
Photographers and dancers will be paired together

Lunch break

Each pair creates an idea for shoot/story/narrative
The rest of the afternoon is creating

Everyone comes together again for a debrief
A closed FB group will be created so we can share the results of the workshop

All the projects will be outside so the location of the workshop will be determined the day before the workshop. Decent weather the whole workshop will be on location, rain we will do the morning in my studio and the afternoon at a location we decide.

During the creation part of the workshop I will be wandering between teams to help in any way I can.
