Welcome to my Art and Dance Photography gallery!

My work is dedicated to a simple goal: capturing the essence of the emotion in each unique image.

I have focused the majority of my work in this gallery on dance for a number of reasons. First and foremost, dance is truly the most visual, emotional and ephemeral of all art forms. It combines extraordinary grace and physicality with exceptional artistry, both individually, and collaboratively and collectively in the choreography of each piece.

The intensity of the emotions in each moment is often breathtaking and always gone in a blink of the eye. Capturing that moment is the beauty and gift of the photographic art form.

You will see that the dance section of the gallery is organized by emotional themes: Love, Grace, Sorrow etc., which I hope will resonate with you.

You’ll also see that under the poetry in motion tab I have paired a number of my images with poems where the visual and written emotions combine sympathetically for me.

Emotional and spiritual themes also run through my landscapes; and to a lesser extent in my portraits ,where I have endeavoured to capture the beauty of the spirit of each of my wonderful subjects (many of whom are dancers).
