The second photoshoot of the Cambridge Ballerina Project, in Jesus College. The main model here was Jenny, one of the dancers I spotted in the recent CU Ballet Show “Sleeping Beauty”. I noticed her potential, even though she wasn’t one of the prominent dancers in the show, and she certainly exceeded my expectations.

Having photographed contemporary and ballet dance shows in Cambridge over the last 5 years, and recently inspired by Dane Shitagi’s “Ballerina Project” based in New York, I decided to work on my own project, creating beautiful images of ballet and contemporary dancers in scenic (and not-so-well-known) locations around Cambridge.
This inaugural shoot took place in Magdalene College and St. John’s College, with Luciana and Claire, two of the more experienced ballet dancers in the recent CU Ballet Show “Sleeping Beauty”.
