Glasgow 2019 for Dance on Tan
Gloria aged 25 and Inti aged 19 in Milan 2019
I shot this series of images underwater. Using my mums wedding dress! The striking colour of the models hair against the black background really stands out to me and we had a lot of fun shooting these images.
I took these images before I had professional lighting. I actually used my car headlights to light the photos. I wanted to continue on that theme of mechanics/cars/machinary. A ballerina's body is like a well oiled machine, they fuel it with the right food, maintain and prevent injury and perform to be best of their ability. I had body painter, Sandra Temple, paint the dancers from head to pointe shoe in metallic copper paint. To see Behind The Scenes of this work please visit www.youtube.com/birdypeacock
Chelsea, a dancer from Brisbane on her holiday to London contacted me for a shoot. To see more of my work visit my Instagram @birdypeacock
