A very random conversation with one of my buddies back home in Pittsburgh got me to recall that I used to photograph dancers. I had spent about seven years getting to know a specific local folk dance community. It was a chance to learn how to photograph motion as well as beauty. Anyway, after seven years I had built up enough trust with various belly dancers to work with a variety of artists. My favorite was this one. We had a number of photo sessions over the years, including her Virginia Beach wedding! Having that trust between artists, and working on creative projects has to be one of the best things I've enjoyed in this life. So many recent events have unfolded here in Wisconsin, giving me a chance to collaboratively create again. I'm feeling really luck.
