I have found LA is full of so many talented humans like my good good friend Nicole Voris and her husband Oliver Endahl. Oliver is the incredible photographer behind Ballet Zaida. My experience during the shoot couldn’t have been better. Oliver is SUPER professional he had a plan for the day to keep everything on track and calm. Music was always playing and to make me feel as comfortable as possible and had me use my iTunes instead of his own. Oliver went over the many outfits I brought and added a tutu had me change my hair etc. It was always with a kind and positive demeanor which made me as a dancer feel even more comfortable which I believe translated into the pictures. Plus plus plus his incredible wife was also there!
A short little brag about the two of them. Nicole and Oliver had one specific look during the day that they wanted to shoot. You could tell how legit they were by the fact that the look took about 7 minutes max. NICOLE IS A PRO. The two worked together like a dance in itself and it was super inspiring being able to witness them work together in person. Simply an incredible day with super incredible people.
A little about Oliver from his website: http://balletzaida.com/about/
My name is Oliver Endahl, I’m a professional ballet photographer. Before I became a ballet photographer I danced ballet for over a decade. Because of this I know what proper classical ballet technique looks like, and that is what you will always see in my photos & films.
Ballet is a truly unique and amazing art form. Unfortunately today, a large amount of the general public is not exposed to the amazing art that is ballet.
By using the internet to make ballet available to everyone, Ballet Zaida has already reached millions of people from all over the globe, and that’s just the beginning.
Ballet Zaida doesn’t only showcase dancers from one company, but from various companies and schools from all over the world.
The purpose of Ballet Zaida is to expose the world to ballet, and to evolve the art of ballet itself
