There are very few things as elegant and as passionate as Latino dancers. Particularly really good ones such as this fantastic pair.
Even in the controlled environment of a photography studio, photographing them was not a simple and easy undertaking. It was couple of hours of hard work for all of us but in the end I do believe it really payed off.
Fluid and beautiful dance offers many photographic opportunities and each movement is a piece of art in itself. Combine that with beautiful, elegant costumes and you have a real treat playing out right in front of your lens. It was almost an overwhelming visual experience of movement and beauty.
Countless hours of training… total determination… perseverance…
These are the keys key to their success.
I can relate to this as well as I am aware of all the hard work that I myself have put into my professional photography and I hope it shows in the photos.
This award-winning couple has already set their sights beyond New Zealand and there is no stopping them! Last time I checked, they were throttling the globe in their conquest of the dance stages following a win at a major New Zealand competition.
People beware, these two will dance right into your hearts!
This is the kind of photography that I really enjoy as it is both meaningful, full of emotion and captures truly awesome people doing what they love to do.
I hope to see these guys again some time soon so that we can push my photography way outside of my zone of comfort and capture something truly unique again.
Stay safe and enjoy those precious moments!
