Big Apple on Pointe


I am a photographer working to capture the beauty of ballerinas around New York City.  I am a performer, a photographer and a lover of the Big Apple.  I decided to combine all of those passions and work to create something that exemplifies the true beauty and art found in the city.

 This series is an effort to bring more beauty into the world, through the lens of living in the city as a performer.  Walking through the park, hailing a cab, grabbing a coffee. Every day things performed with grace and beauty by these incredible dancers.

The money raised will provide equipment needed in bringing this series into reality.  It will also help me take this project to the next level after the photos are all compiled - creating my own photography show in the New York area. 

Thank you so much for you support!
