Back in August last year I had the pleasure of photographing four dancers from The Australian Ballet in Bondi Icebergs empty pool. That was to announce the onsale date for tickets to Swan Lake’s Sydney season, and this week they arranged another spectacular photo opp to coincide with the show opening; four ballerinas in cygnet costume perched on a barge on Sydney Harbour.

I also attended a dress rehearsal of Swan Lake at the Capitol Theatre, shooting Act 1 and some of Act 2.
