Let The Show Begin : Working with Michaela Percival School Of Dance

20th May 2012
Michaela Percival has been running a successful dance school in the Cramlington Area for a number of years catering for all ages. Not only do her students learn various styles of dance and work towards nationally recognised grades but the entire school stages a dance show every few years. Leading up to the show images are required for promotion literature and programmes. My part of that task began yesterday with all the students donning their costumes and posing for myself and my associate Tom in a studio we'd set up in a local community centre.
With several hundred shots in the bag I now have the task of sorting and editing but I'm not finished there. Using my stage photography skills I will be shooting during the dress rehearsal to provide an alternative set which will capture the essence of a live show. From those two shoots a selection of images will be compiled and prints made available to the students and their families as a memento of this fantastic event.
So now for me it's on with the task of editing the first batch, in the meantime the students continue to practice for two days of hard work and superb entertainment.
