Dance Photography – Ballet Ireland’s Swan Lake

My last post of 2014, a great year with lots of wonderful sessions and super clients, looking forward to another wonderful year, see you in 2015 !!

Last month I had another opportunity to photograph Ballet Ireland, this time it was the dress rehearsal for their production of Swan Lake in The Gaiety Theatre, Dublin.

Like last year I wanted to get a different perspective, I wanted to photograph behind the scenes or from the side-line of the performance.

Mini Session – Peelo School of Dance ( Part 2 )

This year I got to do my first Mini Sessions, they took place in The Peelo School of Dance and it was such an enjoyable ( & a little exhausting ! ) day.
The talent of these young ladies is unbelievable, and a joy to watch dance in this gorgeous studio, they are a credit to their teachers in the school.
The day could not have been possible or ran so smoothly if it wasn’t for all the work Deirdre and Niamh did on the day thanks so much ladies.

The Performers Academy – Dance 2014

The Performers Academy is a youth dance company set up by the Peelo School of Dance, for senior pupils.
It has become very popular and has some wonderful talent in it.

The students and teachers put in a huge amount of work and when they put on their performance you can see this – they really are a joy to photograph ( I love my job! ).

Dance Harmony, Peelo School of Dance

March was a very busy month for the Peelo School of Dance as they prepared for 4 shows at The Helix.

I photographed all 4 shows and enjoyed it so much, there was such variety and talent on show from the Maynooth and Celbridge groups, and of course lots of wonderful photo opportunities.
Below is just a small sample of what took place.
