Dance Street Portraits with Ella-Rose Jones

I had wanted to do this type of shoot for a number of months.

Ella was a perfect choice. I toured with her as she played Titania on A Midsummer Night’s Dream last summer and witnessed first hand what a fantastic dancer she is.

I have often discussed what a brilliant dancer she is with a good friend of mine who played Oberon opposite Ella. Upon finding out Ella had got into Barcelona School of Dance, I messaged her and we organised the shoot.

As regular readers will know I do a huge amount of street portrait photography. I wanted to combine this with dance to create photos that are a little different to the norm.

We shot in Hereford for ease but also because it does have some hidden gems all over the city. The cloisters by the cathedral proved a lovely spot, as did the underpass and Tesco car park!

I’m keen to revisit this style of shoot. I’d love to shoot in a laundrette (random!) or at some beautiful manor house with Ella.
