The Dance Experience
Comprehensive details about the Dance Experience with D.C. Dancer Photographer Leandra Brown of Photography by Leandra.
I started dancing at a young age and I honestly can’t remember the exact age. But it wasn’t until I was thirteen and began dancing in my church that I realized that dance was my favorite form of expression and that photography was my favorite form of communication. Photography is my point of view. It’s an art form that allows others to see the world through my eyes and communicate to the viewer what my words fail to express.
Through my dance photography, I can communicate the beauty, strength, dedication, heart, soul, and the movement of the dancer. Dance to me is a beauty like no other. Dance inspires me to be creative and express myself in a way that nothing else can. So instinctively, combining my two loves, dance and photography was a natural progression. With every dancer I photograph, I hope to showcase them how I view them, as a work of art, a masterpiece.
This session takes place outdoors at a location of your choosing. I love incorporating unique architecture and environmental elements into the photographs. I’ve photographed anywhere from busy NYC streets, hotel garages, parks, etc.
The Studio session
This session takes place in studio. I love these sessions because I can completely control the lighting and the environment. You don’t have to worry about the weather; these sessions can take place year-round.
After your session, you will be able to purchase prints of your favorite photographs. You will receive the digital copies of your photos as well, however nothing beats the beauty of a print.
Why you should have a dance session
Trust me, I know how hard it is to be a dancer. I know how many seconds, minutes, days, months, and years you’ve put into dancing. Whether you’re new to dance, or have been dancing for years, you deserve to have the spotlight. You deserve to showcase all of your hard work and see your movement in a new light.
A dance session with me is your time to shine. It’s your time to show off your favorite moves and have fun dancing without the pressure of performing. We’ll pick some really cool locations and create some amazing dance images that not only you will love, but also your friends and family will love.
