Dance

Beauty.  Strength.  Art.

 

We consider it a true privilege to play a small part in the art of dance, and to use the art of photography to celebrate dance.  We understand that capturing these moments, whether for a young aspiring dancer or a seasoned professional dancer, is important to our clients.  We believe our attention to detail, professional skill, and love & appreciation of dance set us apart from most photographers.

 

We work with individuals and dance companies/schools, on-location or in-studio.  We use only professional cameras, lenses, and lighting.

Comstock Photography's primary photographer, Chris, is a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP), certified by the Professional Photographers of America (PPA).  Chris found his way into dance photography several years ago when a fellow homeschooler asked him to photograph for a local studio, and has been enjoying it ever since.  He is experienced with timing image capture with dance moves, and truly enjoys the challenge and interaction with dancers!  He will be attending the Pas de Deux Photo Conference in Chicago this coming July, and is currently working on dancer safety trainings as a prerequisite to the conference (with U.S. Center for SafeSport, Youth Protection Association for Dance, and other organizations).
