First Annual Pas de Deux Photography Conference
Pas de Deux Photo is a professional organization for dance photographers. The first annual Pas de Deux Photo Conference was an amazing success. Taking place the last weekend of January 2020 in Phoenix, Arizona, the conference brought together photographers working in dance in a way that had never been done before.
More than 200 Photographers from around the world attended the conference, which featured speakers Rachel Neville, Jordan Matter, Alexis Cuarezma, Judy Host, David Hofmann, Jonathan Givens, Taylor-Ferne Morris, Eric Pare & Kim Henry, Daniel Woods, David Cooper, Oliver Endahl, Dave Brewer and Ron McKinney.
We also had more than 60 dancers from around the country posing for our photographers in studio setup sessions and outdoor photo walks.
Pas de Deux supports photographers working in volume and individual portraits, with opportunities for business and artistic development.
