I really enjoyed meeting Ross and photographing him for the project. As a trained & professional dancer, I was keen to photograph Ross in some recognisable dance poses – hearing he studied ballet too I got him to dust off the shoes and dance tights for the shoot! My lack of technical terms came into play but Ross taught me a thing or two about dance positions.
I love his childhood photo too – almost looks like he wanted to be a dancer from an early age with that arm extension!
After seeing my tweets about the project, Alistair got in touch. Actor, model and dancer Alistair Frederick, was no stranger to the camera – after a coffee and chat about the project, work, theatre, travelling and even killer whales; we got to get some great shots!
The portrait I chose reflects Alistair’s personality & positive vibes.
