The man BEHIND the lens...
My name is Daniel Hope and I am the lead photographer at DancePro Photography. I have a passion for capturing the power, beauty and strength of dance in photography from the intermate settings of the dance studio to the open expansive space of the stage. I have worked in the dance industry for over 10 years’, specifically within the ballet world. Throughout this time I have had the privilege to work with leading dance companies, elite dancers and graduate students, capturing thousands of dynamic images of dance.
Specialising in Dance Portfolio Photography, I work with dancers to capture the essential images needed to gain employment. I offer a variety of packages to suit every dancer's needs. Take a look at my gallery which features a full breadth of images from studio photography, classwork and stage shots.

What I Can Do for YOU...
The importance of STRIKING photos...
CV PORTFOLIO SHOOTS
To succeed in the dance industry it is essential you have all the tools needed for employment, which goes beyond technique and artistry. Now in the digital age it is crucial that all dancers have professional CV photographs which showcase their technique, lines and abilities to stand out when applying for professional work.
An investment in a dynamic portfolio can set you apart from the crowd, showing potential directors and employers you are someone who can bring their vision to life. A good photographer does not necessarily mean a great dance photographer. With over a decade working in the dance industry I are aware of what is required by employers, correct dance technique and what makes a 'stand out' image to impress prospective employers.
We offer different packages to suit your needs, take a look and book your shoot today!
Make the BEST first impression...
Everyone artist will need a headshot in their career and it is important this is current and truly reflects them as an artist. Having the right headshot will show potential casting agents or employers the essence of dancer and what they can expect from you at an audition or casting,.
As part of every CV Portfolio Shoot dancers will have the opportunity to have several headshots taken and it is advised this is done with different looks in mind, to ensure you have the right head shot to match your chosen career path.
Also, at DancePRO we offer just headshots shoots which can done either in the studio or on location. This can be arranged for either one person or groups.
Capture the ESSENCE of the studio...
CLASSES & REHEARSALS
Photographing classes & rehearsals has always been a favourite service of mine as I am always inspired to see dancers in their own environment. I am able to attend classes or rehearsals to generate images for promotional purposes or just to capture the essence of the company, dancers, studio or school.
As with all my CV Shoot offerings, high quality images are available to order in a variety of formats and sizes with full copyright to use for promotional materials and your website. Rates vary depending on times and locations, however, I am happy to discuss any potential collaboration.
