Early in 2012, I posted some of my dance photography to Photoserve, work produced both for dance companies and for personal projects. Shortly thereafter, I was contacted by a writer at Photo District News who wanted to spotlight my passion for this kind of imagery. Within a few weeks, a story was available on Photo District News' news feed, http://bit.ly/V1IIgv.
In May, my agent Doug Truppe was contacted by an art buyer at The Martin Agency who had seen the story. Within days, we were hired to shoot a series of young children jumping into the air to illustrate the idea of excitement for learning.
It was a wonderful experience all around. The shoot was produced in a studio in New York, with a medium format still camera and a Red Epic video camera to capture motion. On set were a choreographer to help guide the children in their posing, plus the usual complement of assistants, wardrobe and make-up stylists, a digital tech, a producer and her assistant. It was a great crew, and it was a blast to do the job over two days.
Print is already rolling out for advertising and collateral materials, and video footage will be used in-theatre and online. I'll post that when the agency gets that to me.
