The Australian Ballet production stills

In Dance Photography, Performance Photography

I’ve had the good fortune to photograph quite a bit for The Australian Ballet and this past month was no exception as I shot three productions as they opened at Sydney Opera House; Swan Lake, Vitesse and Symphony in C.

Symphony in C features a number of contemporary works, two debuting from choreographers from The Australian Ballet, Alice Topp and Richard House.

One of the joys of photographing ballet is capturing the extraordinary leaps that seem to defy the laws of physics.
