The photos from last January’s 2018 FADS NJ Team Match are expiring! Firstly we have to thank all the support from the dancers that purchased photos. Obviously we could not produce these images without you! Before the photo are archived, you can access them here:
Not only was this our first time at this event, but this was our first time to this part of New Jersey. Although we did get confused driving around as we are originally from Woodbridge, Virginia! However, we felt right at home by the end of the weekend.
2018 FADS NJ Team Match
The dancing was a really high level from all the participating studios. Various events from competitive heats, showcases, and group formations were danced. Surprisingly the students and staff handled all of these well! I enjoyed the variety of all the events keeping the photos interesting throughout the day. For the final Team Match with Summer Vs. Winter, the studio spirit really came out! To conclude this event with all the dancers in the middle of the floor cheering and dancing was exciting to photograph. The professionals really showed off their talent in an effort to win it all!
Thanks again for Nadia for inviting us to her event. We enjoyed the opportunity to show what we can do to a new audience. Best of luck!
The photos from last weekend’s 2018 FADS NJ Team Match have been released! Another new event for us and our first trip to New Jersey in years. We are not yet as familiar with the studios here, thus we sorted the photos by gentlemen’s number. While they are up, you can find them here:
Last year, I was contact by Nadia from the Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Montville, NJ. Certainly this was a booking due to a scheduling conflict. Given that Ryan Kenner usually photographs their events, it was unexpected for us to be here. Without a doubt, I was nervous about covering this event. Ryan is an amazing photographer! It would be big shoes for me to fill for these studios.
Once I got setup, and started making photos, I was feeling better. The venue was the Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel ballroom. Without a doubt, the organizers were very familiar with setting up a room for ballroom dancing. This was not just a studio showcase, this looked like a big dancesport competition! Of course with a new audience, we hope that they enjoy the photos. Please send me any feedback that you have on the results!
The from the 2015 New Jersey State Open are expiring at the TimeLine Media proofing site! Firstly thank to the Roxanne, Susan, and Tom, the organizers who invited us to their event. As I have noted in previous posts, I appreciate all the support. Indeed they have partnered and referred us to grow our business over the years.
The ballroom for this event was very long. Besides being a great distance for my remote controls to work, it was also a large floor. Consequently, I only had lights setup on one of the short sides of the ballroom.
Finally, we wish all the dancers and organizers continued luck with their dancing endeavors! Despite this being a passion, or hobby, so much work went into this weekend. Afterwards, I had some editing and posting of the photos to finish, but it was a success. Eventually the photos will be removed, so please view them soon!
