Ottawa Gymnastics Duo – Elodie et Julie-Anne – Photographie de Sport

WOW!!!! Incroyable.  Élodie et Julie-Anne ont commencées la gymnastique à l’âge de 5 ans (Julie-Anne) et 6 ans (Élodie). Elle sont devenues amies en 2010 lorsqu’elle s’entraînait toutes les deux dans le même groupe de gymnastique provincial à Tumblers. Bien qu’elle soit toutes les deux « retraitées » à cause de blessures, elle s’entrainent plusieurs fois par semaine. La passion pour ce sport existe encore très fort pour ces deux amies!!!  Cette prise de vue était simplement pour le plaisir, et pour illustrer leur amitié et leur passion pour la gym et la contorsion. En voici quelques exemples.

Chris Stuewe – Dance photography with Chalk Experiment

 Coming from a dancing background myself, I always wanted to try this kind of photo session. I have a big studio, but did not want the mess and having to clean up! So, one night, I took my studio outdoors. I had perfect conditions: high humidity, warm weather, almost no wind and the perfect dancer!!! Thank you Chris Stuewe for your perseverance in continuing to contact me about making this photo shoot happen!  I used my canon Mark 111 camera with a 70-200. I used a mix of strobes and video lights and tested the “in camera” multiple exposure options. 9 multiple exposures did not turn out so great but I got great results with the 3 and 5 options!  Here are the results of this fun “dancing with powder” photography session.

CHRIS STUEWE – DANCE PORTFOLIO PORTRAIT

 

 Here is an example of the studio portraits we do for a Dance and Performing Arts portfolio. Chris was wonderful to photograph. As a professional  dancer, he understands lighting and body movement. This gave us more opportunities to create interesting artistic poses. His black and white headshot is one of my favorite. Here is a short resume about Chris’s accomplishments at such a young age. We wish you good luck with your career!!!

“Chris Stuewe is an Ottawa native who moved from Manotick to New York City to pursue his dance career. He began dancing when he was sixteen at South Carleton High School and now has trained in Los Angeles at the Debbie Allen Dance Academy and the Edge Dance Centre. In New York he has trained for a year and a half at the Broadway Dance Centre under many of today’s top choreographers like Sonya Tayeh, Desmond Richardson, La Jon Dantzler, Ellenore Scott, Neil Schwartz, Joshua Pelatzky. He has performed with artists such as Shaggy, Robert Taylor Jr and LMFAO. When Chris returns to Ottawa he teaches and choreographs at various dance studios across the city.”  You can check out his website by clicking this link.

Dance School Photography- Photo de Danse, Ottawa, Orleans, Ontario

It’s dance school time again!!! For the next three weeks, we will be busy photographing dance schools around the Orleans area. We rented office space at 1981 St-Joseph Boulevard ( next to Cora’s and Royal Oak) so we can have a dedicated studio and set-up for dance photos. Have a look at a few examples from last years set up.

To view more photos from previous years, you can click on the links for these dance schools below!

Dedra – Modeling photography

Beautiful Dedra… We have had the great pleasure of photographing Dedra ever since she started dancing when she was a little girl…..And this girl can dance….she is incredible. She is now in Toronto, Ontario studding dance and wanted to work on her portfolio images. We had a lovely photo session at our photography studio in Cumberland, Ontario. We went from natural light to flash, changes set-up many times and just had fun. Since she can move so well, we elaborated on her posing skills and incorporated some dance moves in her portrait session. Here are some highlights of the photo session.

Ottawa Dance Photographers – featuring Laura Jeffs

Here’s a fun photo session for this time of year. Dance school photography is just around the corner as dancers are getting ready for their end of year recital. Over the years, we take photos of many dance schools in the Ottawa, Orleans and Plantagenet area. I really love it when we get to do an hour photo session in the studio in a more artistic matter. Laura offered these photos to her mom as a gift for creating and making all her wonderful dance costumes. She was also our first ballerina brave enough to dance in the snow!…A true Canadian!!! Here are a few highlights of the photo session.

Kevin Howe – So You Think You Can Dance Canada

If you watch ” So you think you can dance Canada” on CTY, you already know that Kevin Howe, from Ottawa, Ontario, is in the top 22!

The star.com wrote : Kevin Howe, 21, Ottawa: It was good to see Kevin back after he just missed top 22 last year. He’s a very solid, masculine contemporary dancer with lovely lines, great transitions and an excellent flow of movement. “Kevin, welcome back, you are a man that is on a mission,” said Mary. “You are someone that is not taking no for an answer. You are pushing through every hurdle. You are ready for Season 4. I’m gonna give you a little wooooo hoooooooo!” And speaking of welcoming back, it’s nice to hear Mary scream again.

Last week he danced his first routine with Teya Wild and here is what the Montreal Gazette wrote about it: “North Van hip hop dancer Teya Wild glams up and joins powerhouse contemporary dancer Kevin Howe, from Ottawa, in a Stacey Tookey routine about a cheating fool and his attempt to reconcile with his lady. Fave judge Luther says it all, congratulating Tookey for finding that perfect balance which allowed Kevin’s commanding technique to shine while allowing Teya the chance to dig deep emotionally and keep the technique to a minimum. A routine voters should remember.”

We wish him good luck and don’t forget to VOTE,VOTE,VOTE for KEVIN HOWE !!!

Here is a little trip down memory lane when we photographed Kevin every year with Leeming Danceworks in Orleans, Ontario.
