A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting a dance spread for West Hollywood Magazine. Photographed using the Leica S and 35mm and 70mm CS lenses, the shoot took place high above Sunset Boulevard at the Andaz Hotel, a hip boutique hotel located in West Hollywood, CA. The direction for the shoot was to showcase the talents of 8 dancers- Kim Gingras, Taylor James, Melanie Mah, Michael Silas, Vincent Noiseux, and twins Jayme Rae and Jenny Dailey.
Here is the cover along with a few outtakes and behind the scenes from the shoot. To see the entire spread, visit the website. You can also check out the digital version here.
Michael Silas started the day off strong.
The light changed quickly which required quick adjustments in between dancers
Twins Jenny and Jayme Rae Dailey discussing their strategy
In addition to great energy and camaraderie on set, we were rewarded with gorgeous views of the Los Angeles skyline.
