Dancers in Motion

  • Jul 21, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The goal will be to challenge your ability to take inspirational, creative and fun images of dancers in motion that may not be easily captured in a photography studio.

Featuring competitive dancers of The Studio School of Dance: There will be an opportunity to shoot at least 3 pre-professional dancers in motion in approx. 4 different costumes each in a variety of dance disciplines including ballet, jazz, hip hop, and contemporary.  There will be opportunity for the dancers to perform their solo routines and if time allows some duets. More dancers will be added to the roster with increased interest. Dancers have experience working in fast paced demanding environments. Some dancers have modelling experience and are working towards buidling their modelling/dance portfolios.  Photographers will be asked to share high res images with the dancers.

Special guest photographer: Denis Rule of Denis Rule Photography aka The Lighting Guy will be in attendance and has graciously offered to allow us the use of his lighting equipment.

Suggested equipment: Each photographer should bring an off the camera flash just in case it is needed. There may be 4 different shooting areas. Priority may be given to photographers who are willing to assist by providing back drop and/or lighting equipment.

    Nicole - I'm wondering what is/was the deadline for the contest that the moms were doing for us? It's been so crazy in my house I haven't had a chance to complete my pics but I don't want to miss the contest!

      Hi :) The deadline was Friday, but it had completely slipped my mind that this was the long weekend. I'm extending the deadline to this Friday. So that will give us some extra time to get our images ready.

      Life has been crazy here too, so I fully understand. I keep reminding myself I only have a 4 day work week then I'm on summer holidays. I'll be able to breathe then, lol.

      Look forward to seeing your pictures.

      So are you using the pictures we submitted to this site, or is there somewhere else we are supposed to put them?

    Just wanted to thank Roman, Seigfried, and Mike Hanlon again for bringing lights and your amazing help!!! Thank you to all the photographers from the dancers and their families. The dancers had a great time and there is already talk that the dancers are looking forward to another shoot next year ;) Can't wait to see the pictures! This afternoon, I'll work preparing the links for submitting your pictures for the families to vote on, and I will send that to you as soon as possible. Thank you and it was nice to meet everyone :)

    Stuck on highway 40 on my way back from Montreal. Not sure that I will be able to make it early in the session. So disappointed. Sorry.

    oh dear, I have been booked for a shoot tomorrow afternoon and while I love doing new and creative things, I can't turn down an opportunity to make a client happy! I will be canceling and requesting a refund. I see there is a wait list and several folks have expressed interest, so hopefully Nicole will be sure to call someone up.

    July 20, 2013

    • Mike G.

      It is not up to the host to call for replacements. You did the right thing by changing your RSVP to NO. That creates a new opening so the system e-mails everyone on the wait list. If one of them happens to fill the opening then the host may permit a refund. It is best however to adhere to the Refund policy established by the host.

    HI there, I signed up for this before I went away on holiday and did not pay on line before I left.Absolutely new to this group. Am I still on the list? Please please?

    • Nicole L.

      Jinny, I'm sorry. It doesn't look as if you are on the attendee list. I'm not 100% how it works either but I believe if you don't pay within a certain amount of time then your spot isn't confirmed.

      July 17, 2013

    • Mike G.

      I see no indication you were ever confirmed Jinny. Generally if there is an fee set by the organizer then you can't RSVP without paying. Some permit it, but most do not as we've had too many people offer to pay on arrival only to never show leaving people on the wait list frustrated and the organizer with a shortfall to cover expenses.

      July 20, 2013

  • Nicole L.

    Yeah! Thank you so much to Roman and Siegfried who will be bringing lights :) Look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow :)

    July 20, 2013

  • Roman R.

    Can bring two lights and a softbox

    OK I'll learn to be faster next time.

    I do have some bad news regarding the shoot :( Denis Rule informed me yesterday that he is no longer able to attend the shoot. Denis was bringing in his demonstration equipment for us to use. In his absence, I will need 2 sets of strobe lights. Would anyone attending be willing to bring strobes? Please and Thank you. For 2 people willing to bring in their strobes, I might be able to arrange that when you are setting up your equipment a dancer or two is present.

  • Nicole L.

    Mike &Jenny. I'm away from my computer at the moment, i'll answer late morning :)

    July 17, 2013

  • Mike G.

    I am interested in attending. I also have black/white/green cloth backdrop and an arsenal of speedlights and modifiers.

    I don't have an external flash. Will I be able to borrow one, or is it just a nice-to-have?

    July 11, 2013

    • Nicole L.

      All the Studios will have lighting so the external flash is not mandatory just a nicety.

      The external flash will be nice if while waiting your turn and you wanted to take extra photos outside of the studios, such as in the hallways, waiting room, or outside.

      July 11, 2013

    • Nicole L.

      If it's nice outside you could use ambient light :)

    Just a quick note: Everything is coming together wonderfully for the shoot :) I have 8 dancers attending. Mike Hanlon will be bringing a set of lights and a white back drop, Denis Rule will be bringing 2 sets of lights and his many years of dance photography expertise, and I will be bringing a set of lights and a black back drop. This will allow us to use all 4 studio rooms. 2 rooms will have back drops for creative portrait images and 2 rooms will be set up for creative jumping and turning type of images.

    I will be opening the shoot to 3 more photographers: for 4 groups of 3 photographers.

    I am now working on the photo shoot plan and will hopefully be posting in the next week (or two).
