Dance Photographs 


Hi, My name is Daniel Cardelino. I am an Atlanta-based photojournalist looking to expand my portfolio, so I thought there’s no better way to grow than photographing Atlanta artists. For my next project, The plan is to tell the story of arts and artists in Atlanta. Primarily using portraits, I plan to layer the pictures with a small statement from the artist about their connection to the art form, and possibly include candid photography. Dance is a beautiful art form and I’d like to find some dancers who are willing to be photographed for this project. If you are interested, please let me know.
For dates and times, contact me directly at cardelinod@gmail.com or @danielcardelinophotos on Instagram.
