Melissa is new to modeling, but not to the stage. She is a dance performer in North Hampton. I really enjoy working with creative models. By taking them places like Enders State Forest, they get inspired and their performances are always amazing.]
Yoga & Dance at Enders Falls
I like to use Enders State Forest as a location for its waterfalls. I often use it for first shoots with a new model. Kristi is a professional dancer in Connecticut who travels quite a bit. For our shoot she combined dance and yoga and we created some great images.
Belly Dancing at Elizabeth Park
Elizabeth Park in Hartford, CT is the oldest municipally operated rose garden in the country. It makes for a great place to shoot. I have shot there several times with CONNetic Dance
The roses come into full bloom at the start of summer, so I set up a shoot with one of my belly dancing models Lisa, AKA Carrara Nour. As a professional dancer, Lisa collects belly dance costumes like photographers collect equipment. And she had just acquired some new ones and was ready to do a shoot.
CONNetic Dance at Enders State Forest
Went out to a favorite spot nearby, Enders State Forest. There are some great water falls that are easily accessible. I have shot there with several models. This time out it was with CONNetic Dance. They planned out what they wanted and we got to it.
Promotion Photos for CONNetic Dance
I was asked to shoot some promotional photos of my friends at CONNetic Dance company for a performance.
