The backstage as your studio

How cool is this; I have been photographing the Cape Town Ballet Company dancers during rehearsals (at their dance studio at the University of Cape Town) and dress rehearsals (mostly at Artscape) for about a year now.

What started as a mini project morphed into somewhat of a passion. One of the side benefits of my relationship with this company is that during productions I have the privilege to get access to the back stage for some non-performance shoots. Large open black spaces make for excellent studios…

Trevor Schoonraad, a principal dancer at CTBT kindly agreed to a shoot. It was fantastic working with him and I think we got some great results!
