Yesterday I had the great pleasure of photographing Taiwanese dancer Billy Zhang (張逸軍). We had quite a bit of time (most of an afternoon) to make some images — which is something I’m not used to. I primarily do editorial photography where my subjects often have to be coaxed and cajoled into a session and are looking for excuses to finish the shoot at the soonest time possible.

Billy travelled the world with Quebec-based Cirque Du Soleil for three years before becoming a teacher/choreographer for the Colorado College Drama and Dance Department in Colorado Springs. He has just come back to Taiwan and is needing some promotional material.

Not only did I have more time than I am used to, I also had a subject that is a consummate professional and added more creatively to the shoot than anyone I have ever photographed.

He threw out some great ideas and then we would work to realize them.
