I remember reading a blog from a music photographer a while back that referred to the artist-to-artist energy felt when photographing live bands. Basically he connected with the performance and the photographs came naturally – essentially a visual representation of his experience.

When asked to photograph a belly dancing performance, I immediately knew how I wanted to shoot it. However, one of the many wonderful things about photographing an artist is you invariable get more than you bargained for – and this was no exception. It was wonderful to have the intense energy of the amazing dance guide the creation of the photographs. And the shots most certainly came naturally.

Peace,
