I had the pleasure of shooting a dance event a bit back and I thought I would try something different and document my night so you can see some of the things I do as I wander around the many events I attend each and every year…
So have a gander at my short little video and appreciate all that is me freezing my arse off while trying to set my focus… or in this case not focus. lol
Each year the Latin dance community puts on a charity dance event that not only is a great night out but OMG its a dress up as well……
Now last year I popped along not know what it was all about and was totally surprised by how professional the event was, not to mention the number of people rocking the floor.
From a strict entertainment point of view, this is a great night out… The show that they put on is fantastic and while it comes across as a Latin dance event it is soo much more…
They have a full on night filled with performances of all sorts and last year they had like a circus of performers along with the most exceptional dancers from all styles that you could imagine…
Now one of the best things about this event is not that it is a great night out, has more than enough entertainment to fill they Sydney harbor or that it has more rock than the rolling stones… No… Its because every single cent raised from this event go to charity!!!!
All the organizers work for free. The equipment is for free and I am also working for free..
Last year was a rocking year for the event and I know to talk to Mark (organizers) has some very special things lined up for this year.
So what ever you are doing in your calender on the 26th of July go along and cancel it NOW and rebook to come along to this great night out at the Albert Hall here in Canberra.
On of forgot to mention that this years theme is Mythology so you have to come dressed up in that theme and take it from me you will only feel left out if you dont come dressed up….
What more info them pop over to their facebook site or drop me a line.
I have dedicated my photography career in the pursuit of capturing the very essence of what I am photographing so as to bring the “forever memories” back to life. Through this, I now have the ability to share my years of experience with you through my on-line courses.
“Yes, I was very pleased with the photos. I was hoping for a nice family picture but ended up with so much more...I love the story behind the photos (like the fake laugh!), hence me ordering a number of the candid ones. My mum is visiting at the moment and she picked a few for herself too which is great."

"BTW thanks very much for the special gift, kids love those photos!!! And will find a use for the voucher if I can."
"Fantastic Brendan, I'm very much looking forward to receiving them!"
"So many people have said how amazing you were on Saturday and that you are such an amazing person :)"
"They look amazing! Thank you I'm very happy with my final photos."
"Hey Brendan, thanks for the photos - they're fantastic. I gave Jenny (the girl in the photos) her copies and she was very happy. Thank you very much!"
"I've been dancing since I was three years old. For me, dancing is how I express the depths of who I am, each fluid movement allowing me to tell a story about an emotion, a time or a person.
What I loved about Brendan was his ability to capture that expression, story, and reveals more about me that a simple happy snap."

"We loved the passion and artistic angles Brendan Maunder put into our photos from the National capital championships, the service Brendan provided was 10/10 and the comments we got on the photos after we posted them on our fan page was overwhelming"

"Brendan I just saw a few of the wedding photographs they are just beautiful. The ones you captured of the moment I realised the music playing was from our wedding day are so special I cried seeing them a beautiful moment captured by you. I cannot thank you enough and look forward to seeing them all later this week when I sit down with Jodi and Jamie. Thank you x"
