I Work Discreetly
I value the emotional experience of the ballet audience. My shooting style and gear is discreet. My camera is specially hand picked for ballet. Sony a1 and a9 are the only low light capable camera with absolutely silent e-shutter. I really don’t like to distract during the Swan Lake adagio. My lenses are bright, coming from Zeiss and Sony – it makes it possible to isolate the soloist from the background and shoot dark scenes like Giselle 2nd act and The Kingdom of Shades in La Bayadere. Nobody notices me, nobody hears me shooting the performance.
