A moment in time

Part of being an event photographer is that I get to go to these really cool places, and capture all sorts of things, and one of those cool places I went to a few months ago was the Australian’s salsa open in Sydney.

There was a large event spread over three very long days, but they were fantastic days. I got to meet lots of people, make new friends and capture some really interesting shots. And this is just one of those.

Now I’m not sure how they got into this position or even how they got out of it, but it does make for an interesting action shot.

National Capital DanceSport Championships – Congress

If you attended the 2014¬†National Capital DanceSport Championships Congress I have a special treat for you…

I am giving away all the photos from the Congress… ¬†Why would I do such a thing? ¬†Well easy really.. ¬†I see the¬†future of dance and the extraordinary¬†levels that¬†were on display at the NCDC through the attendance of people to Congress.

The talent that was before the¬†people was awe inspiring and I don’t dance!!!!! ¬†I was surprised about sitting there¬†listening to the presenters that they all had a common theme. ¬†A theme that was not solely dance related. ¬†They spoke about the challenges they faced and how they overcome them, they spoke¬†about the mindset that it takes to succeed and they spoke about the commitment to give it there all even though it was tough..

This my friends was not a dance congress but a life congress.  Well done to everyone that attended as you are taking steps in the right direction to not only becoming a better dancer but a better person.

So if you did¬†attend the congress you are free to¬†download any or all of the images from my website. ¬†Simply¬†click on dance from the menu on the left then select the Congress gallery. ¬†From there you can open the images and right-click to save them to your computer. ūüôā

Enjoy.

Learn how to dance in Auckland New Zealand – Aussie Style

Now for anyone that knows me in the dancing circles I don’t know how to dance. ¬†Not that I don’t want to learn how to dance it is just that I don’t know how to dance.

I would really like to learn how to dance and while in New Zealand I came across a dance¬†studio out of Auckland that would help me… Viva Dance Studios…. ¬†How did I come across and studio that would help me¬†show me how to dance in Auckland… Easy…. ¬†The director of the New Zealand Salas Congress Saione Greer is also the director of Viva Dance Studios.

He is one of the¬†nicest blokes you could meet… He is out to help everyone and¬†even though he is a busy man has time for everyone… ¬†Which to me in my¬†business is a nice¬†change?

The students from Viva Dance Studios are also a¬†pleasure… ¬†and¬†watching them¬†perform was also a sight to be seen.

Most Aussies dance like me I am sure…. Beer in one hand and no interest in the other…. but I must say when you see these guys crack off a move you just wish you¬†could be part of that….. and the¬†reality is that if you live in Auckland you can…. Learning how to dance in Auckland is just as easy as¬†calling up any one of the dance studios but I must say given my experience you should give Viva Dance Studio the first go. ¬†Not because their¬†students put on a show at the New Zealand Salsa¬†Congress and not because they are located in New Zealand’s biggest city but because they are just¬†nice people.. ¬†My time spent in New Zealand was sooo much better thanks¬†Saione Greer hospitality and for that I thank him.

In fact, her is a photo of him in action.. ¬†ūüôā
