The first annual Pas de Deux Photo Conference features photographers leading the field.
Jordan Matter has taken dance photography to the top of the NY Times Bestseller List. Rachel Neville and her team have taken the experience of the studio experience to a completely new level. David Hofmann, known as "sharkcookie" on social media, has acquired a prodigious following on social media with both dancers and photographers due to his extraordinary work on location and in the studio, particularly with artistic, edgy lighting.
Canadians Eric Pare and Kim Henry have worked together to create brilliant light-painting portraits using Eric's colorful light tubes. Taylor-Ferne Morris might still have her pointe shoes, but her focus these days is behind the camera in Australia photographing dancers from the Australian Ballet, the Melbourne Ballet and the New Zealand Ballet. Jonathan Givens of EPS Photo published a book titled Dance Across the USA and creates impeccably beautiful artistic portraits in his studio in south Florida and on location everywhere.
