Dancer Headshots

Why is it important for Dancers  to have high quality professional Headshots to further their career?

As far as Dancer Headshots are concerned, It’s a well-known fact that Dancers and Performers need high quality Dance Headshots to further their career in the entertainment industry.

Dancer Headshots to stand above the competition.

Dancers must be able to stand out from their competition, but also not look fake or staged. Therefore, it is important for them to have high quality professional Dancer Headshots taken so they can book more jobs, as well as advance their career in the future.

Professional Dancer- Professional Photographer

Professional dancers spend hours perfecting every move before performing on stage. These same professionals then put all their professional appearance in 1-3 photographs to offer to Dance Companies, Dance Agencies and Theatres and it’s for this reason that a professional Dancer headshot is so important. Most Dancers will want one or two main looks they want to shoot, usually Ballet, Contemporary, Musical Theatre or Commercial Opportunities.

What kind of Photographer Should I book?

For Dancer Headshots it makes sense to book someone who already works with a lot of dancers and understands their needs. Here at Duo Photo’s Studio we have won Professional Awards and Accreditation with The Master Photographers Association for the quality of our Dance Photography. Having worked with many dancers and Dance Clubs we are fully aware of what you need to send to Agencies, other Dance Schools or Urdang for example

Don’t allow your Dancer Headshot to be the weakest link.

Don’t allow your Dancer Headshot to be the weakest link in your professional Dance Portfolio, trust a professional who is as dedicated to Photography, as you are to Dance. 

Very few Dancers and Actors expect to get ahead in their career without high quality headshots.

I went to Duo Photo to have a Company head shot done. The two guys Edson and James were great making me feel at ease and I was very happy with the outcome.
The place is immaculate and I would have no problem in returning if I want anymore photography done.
They also showed me some corporate videos that they have done and again they looked great and it was very interesting how they actually shot these?
100% all round good experience!

This guy James did an excellent job of taking photos of my Guest House in The Lakes. He was professional and took time over detail. I will be using him again next year when and as my rooms change. Very happy with the results.

I took my partner and daughter here as a birthday gift and we had a fantastic time. My daughter is only 2 so I was worried it would be a difficult shoot. I’m glad to say I was wrong as she was made to feel completely at ease and really got into the shoot. We’ve ended up with so many great photographs the only problem I have now is picking which ones to take home. I could not recommend duo photo highly enough. Professional, friendly and extremely helpful.

Family Photoshoot every year

As a mother of three children, Lisa.S “enjoys the opportunity to take her family on a photo shoot every year or so”. She said that” it is difficult to find an accommodating photographer who can provide professional photos for all members of the family- from toddlers to grandparents”- and she always felt rushed with in-studio photography sessions. That’s why she was thrilled when she discovered “Duo Photo’s” Photography Studio next to Team Valley Retail Park, which offers full service portraits for everyone in the family: people, pets.

Family Portrait Sessions used to be stiff and informal!

In the past, getting family portraits taken meant going to a studio where everyone had to sit still and not talk. This can be difficult for children who are naturally hyperactive. However, some photographers have now opened studios that cater specifically to families with young children. These “Happy” photography studios provide a photo-taking experience tailored to younger kids so they will enjoy the session and be more cooperative in front of the camera. Getting your family’s portrait taken should be an enjoyable experience!
