Dancers in the Mist


Show Full Text

I learn by doing so I give myself little projects all the time to facilitate becoming a more skilled photographer. I started photographing dance in January and I’m sampling all different genres to see what I like. I had played around with a fog machine last year with a boxer and thought it would look good with some dancers. I put together a few shoots with some very talented local dancers and we made some great images.

The fog really reduces the studio to just the small space the dancer occupies and I like the effect.

I am Mark Ruddick, an experienced photographer working in London, ON. I enjoy photographing dancers and really appreciate the athleticism and artistry involved. Coming from a fight photography background, I have developed my technique to capture rapidly moving subjects at high speed in front of the lens. The resulting instinct for timing fight photography has lead to an ability to capture my subjects at the peak of their motion.

Let me capture the photos that move you.

Here are some of my favourites from the sessions.
