Johannesburg dance photographer

I'm a Johannesburg dance photographer, capturing unforgettable dance photos for talented dancers since 2005.

I understand the importance of preserving fleeting moments of the art form you're passionate about and have spent countless hours perfecting.

With my strikingly crafted light, I'll create timeless works of art that will set your dance portraits above the average and make them memorable for a lifetime.

Simple Pricing

It is a value-for-value exchange and an incredible investment.

I charge a professional rate of R2500 for my time, equipment and creative juices.

From an incredible selection of images, you will buy those you love. What you purchase is entirely up to you.

Images are sold individually and are R750 each.

My superpower is seeing and understanding dance expressions in all forms.

Less is more. I specialise in the most comprehensive and detailed editing but focus on a natural retouching method.

My Style

It is crucial to choose a child photographer whose style resonates with you.

My style is contemporary while timeless.

What to wear

Keep your choice of outfits simple.

White, cream, nude and grey tones work well on a white background.

Blacks and greys on a black background.

Bring your wardrobe on hangers to prevent it from getting creased - don't wear it.

You can do as many wardrobe changes as you like - time permitting.

If you're still in doubt, bring your whole wardrobe


Keep hairstyles simple and generally tied back.

Hands and Nails

So often overlooked, ensure you trim your nails. If you colour your fingernails, choose a neutral or clear tone.

Professional Makeup

Keep makeup to a minimum.

Think of your face as a template. A little foundation, concealer, blush, mascara and lip gloss are all you need.

I recommend natural makeup over complete makeovers but can arrange professional makeup for an additional fee.

Drink water the day before and on the day of your session. It reduces puffiness.


I want your photos to stand out from the average dancer's portfolio photos.

I use a simple one-light setup on black backgrounds, silhouette images, and high-key lighting for white backgrounds.


I typically use a simple one-light setup against black-and-white backgrounds and for silhouettes.

I want your photos to stand out from the average dancer's photos.

Why buy artwork when you have priceless dance moments?

View your dancing photo session as an investment for generations to enjoy.

Remember, you can't frame a digital file.

I strongly believe in enlarged and professionally framed prints; it is rewarding.

My studio offers a beautiful range of quality products.



My standards are high - let me capture an award-winning dance portrait for you.

I am thrilled to be among only two photographers in Africa awarded a Master's portrait accreditation from the Portrait Masters.


The next steps are easy


You think you have time. Next month. Next year.

Time flies. Let me make it stand still.


Your dance photo session includes a pre-shoot telephone consultation; we will discuss wardrobe, lighting and posing styles.

I want to meet your expectations, so please send me examples from my portfolio or elsewhere that you like.


Children often take over the session. The more chaotic, the better.

Bring the grandparents - the photos will mean the world to everyone over time.
