N.C. Photographer Sparks Creativity with Dance Images!

As a photographic artist, I am always looking for ways to stay creative. Personal projects are a great way for me to stay creative and get inspired! I had such a great time with the “I Am a Dancer” project. I love to photograph dancers! I have watched many dancers grow throughout the years. I see their passion and hard work to be the best they can be.

I practice. I persevere. I endure. I am a dancer.Logan Marker 20x24 metal copyWe asked dancers to send us their story of why they love to dance. We had a great response, from very young dancers to several professional dancers!

I take flight. I soar. I touch the sky. I am a dancer.

We even had one story about three generations of dancers!

I share my passion. I encourage. I teach.
