About this Event

Multi-disciplinary artist Jack Thomson is will be touring his dance photography workshop's series across the globe this summer. Connecting photographers from Tokyo to Amsterdam through our shared curiosity and passion for dance photography.


The Workshop

This workshop is aimed at photographers who want to develop their relationship with dance, and also for dancers who have a vested interest in photography and wish to deepen their practice in a collaborative, safe and creative environment (limited to 10 photographers per city).

Each workshop will use the backdrop of the host city, as we explore the intersection between movement & photography, with a focus on composition, form and the language of movement. We will also be covering...

  • Perspectives and approaches on capturing movement in a still form.
  • Tools to keep dancers/subjects inspired by offering stimulus to provoke their physicality.
  • Dance photography as a collaborative act.
  • Building a common collaborative language between visual arts and movement.
  • Tapping into your own physicality in order to achieve your desired image.
  • The body and space/architecture.

Photographers will be collaborating closely with four world class professional dancers throughout the day, in the morning classical ballet dancers and in afternoon two contemporary dancers.

The dance artists will be announced very soon.
