Ballerinas – a photographic journey (12)

Living in the Thompson Okanagan region of British Columbia is fantastic; the most sunshine in all of Canada, stunning late fall and early spring days, and very unique topography for those willing to put in the effort to find it…I am.

I had been up here earlier in the day because it’d been a year or so since I’d visited these hoodoos just outside of Kamloops.  I found this funky locale that I wanted the dancer to use as not only an element of her pose but also have her mimic the statuesque form of the rock formation.  It’s a bit of a hike but Morgan was  a trooper.  We agreed on the white outfit and pink pointe shoes as a contrast to the landscape and tried a few different angles and poses before finalizing this one.

When I work on the series it’s extremely important that the dancers love the pose and the final results, and I won’t move forward until we both feel we nailed the concept.

Dancer:  Morgan     Location:  Kamloops, BC

To see more of the series go to –   Cheers, Kelly
