Come experience “the professional difference” - posing to bring out your best images.
Carl works to CAPTURE the dancer’s uniquely special style and personality.
Through artistic direction dancers learn about posture and projecting emotion.
Quite often dancers we work with say “they felt like a professional model in our photo sessions”
with professional artistic direction and attention to detail.
The Professional Difference images capture your personality and professionalism.
Visually everything in the image “makes sense” - the essence of you in a well coordinated pose: posture & energy, head & body angle, hands & arm positions, & expression with animated eyes, face, mouth = uniquely you personal performance power and persona.
Many have told us “information, direction, and coaching received in photo sessions transformed
their dancing and performance on stage – and more importantly, that people in their audience
note and commented on their professionalism and performance quality”.
