Sara – Bull Run Bluebells

Bull Run Bluebells, Manassas National Battlefield Park

Every spring along Bull Run creek in Manassas National Battlefield Park, the Virginia Bluebells, Mertensia virginica, come alive and add a touch of beautiful blues and purples to the stream hiking trail. This year I shot a local Professional Ballet Dancer, Sara Gaydash, in among the bluebells, I love the moody dark feel of this image. I will be posting more from this shoot in the near future!

Poetry of Motion

Poetry of Motion

For the past two years I have been shooting a Dance Art Photography project; both to highlight my Dance Photography and to bring more awareness to the beauty, artistry and athletic ability of dancers. These images are of a very talented young dancer from The Academy of Russian Ballet in Manassas, Virginia. To view more of our “Poetry of Motion” Art images please visit our
Website: Poetry of Motion  or Blog: Poetry of Motion

Poetry of Motion

In the Spring of 2011 I started an art project entitled “The Poetry of Motion” centered on capturing the beauty and artistry of dance in still photographs. The project is set to wind up in the fall of 2012 with The Gallery at 915 in Fredericksburg, Va. hosting the exhibition of the images in late Winter 2012.

We have created a blog for the Poetry project and we hope you visit it here, to enjoy the images of the wonderfully  talented dancers. To purchase any of the limited edition prints from this project please visit our storefront, if you have any questions about the project or are interested in participating please email me for further information.
