I’m not so much a people shooter. But when there is an opportunity with the right location, I certainly go for it.
The Ballerina is the daughter of a close personal friend and the location is owned by yet another good friend. Mix friends and occasions and you are presented with the opportunity you’ve been waiting for. I have found that when one is developing as photographer you dream up these wonderful settings you would once love to shoot. While dreaming you don’t see things that are apparent around you. People you know who have access to great locations, friends that are into special sports, dance or other cool activities and you don’t even come to think of just asking them if they would love to get some nice pictures for themselves. My tipp to you: sit back, think of your close friends and what they are into and just go ask them to join in for a great photo session. Work on creating opportunities for yourself and for others. It’s going to be fun for everyone involved.
Special thanks to Beat for providing this wonderful location and to Aline for her wonderful ballet dance
