cincinnati ballet

I had the opportunity to assist one of my favorite photographers (who happens to be a great friend) Peter Mueller a few weeks on a shoot with the Cincinnati Ballet. Peter and I met in photography school and have been close friends ever since! In school, I always called him my hero and he always referred to me as his inspiration. :)

I can't say enough good things about Peter and his photography. You have got to check out his website. His work is amazing!! He did the portraits of Dan and I on my site and on the blog. They are pretty much the only pictures I've ever liked of myself. :) I'm not a big fan of getting my picture taken. ;)

Peter is the official photographer for the Cincinnati Ballet. He was hired to do an all day shoot for a new brochure they are working on and he was nice enough to ask me to help him out. It was nothing but a great experience! I walked into it not knowing anything about ballet but left being completely amazed and wanting to know more. The entire day I stood there basically speechless as I watched them perform. Everyone was SO nice too! I cannot wait until I get to see an entire show .. hopefully in May! :D

It was an insanely busy day so I didn't get to take many pictures but I did manage to snap a few during a break. :)
