  • Dance Photography Packages

Having realised there is a gap for dancers to be able to find affordable dance photography that can be produced in a suitable safe environment our dance packages have been specifically tailored and created to offer a stress free one stop solution.

Starting from 1 hr for £99 (including 20 images and use of our professional dance studio) our packages can be used by individuals, groups of 2 people or small collectives, right up to dance companies.

Find out more here!

We also offer competitive rates for miscellaneous services such as printing, equipment use, and offer free hot desking facilities.

Once it is safe to do so we have plans for informal coffee mornings and get togethers.
