Industry Dance Magazine is an online dance magazine, the number 1 dance community website in Canada. I was taken on board to shoot the July front cover with editor in chief Christie Lee Manning and dancers Tia Haraga and Thiago Fayad. Christie Born and raised in Vancouver, BC, Christie Lee Manning has established herself as a a very talented, upcoming artist. Trained in Classical Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Tap, Musical Theater, and Ballroom, Christie graduated from the Langley Fine Arts School as a Dance Major after performing with the school’s modern based dance company, Esprit De Corps.
The location chosen was downtown Vancouver and with a few ideas for shots it was going to be a busy day. The series of shots ranged from aerial photographs onto the street below, dancing with buskers, jumping down stairs and littering alleyways. Not everything went to plan. We were asked by security to leave one set stairs as they apparently were not meant to be photographed and a not so kind elderly lady was convinced we climbed on her car to get onto a spiral staircase even though the behind the scenes video shows the team effort gymnastic leg up option we decided on.
