Dancer Headshots Portland | Portland Ballet Test Shoot With Giselle Tiret
My test shoot with Portland Ballet dancer, Giselle Tiret, could not have been more pleasing. Giselle’s mom, a wonderful friend of mine, contacted me, inquiring about headshots for her daughter’s application to a Paris, France summer dance academy. This is a common necessity for international auditions. Giselle will be needing a headshot as well as a full body shot en pointe in arabesque.
I developed a vision. I want to produce something more stunning and artful than a typical headshot and wanted to test out lighting and setup for my vision. This first shoot turned out beautifully and I absolutely cannot wait to pull together all the fine details… including a different leotard and tulle tutu… to make it a masterpiece of perfection.
It was amazing that I got this call out of the blue, because I have always been inspired by dancers and had recently been thinking that I’d love to start working with them. My hope is that this will open up opportunities to work with dancers more often.
Now that I’ve tested out setup for this look, I’m looking forward to more headshot sessions with dancers here in the Portland, Oregon area and beyond.
