Are you a dancer? Do you have experience in pointe? I would love to photograph you. I am expanding my brand to specialize in creating ballet portraits which also means that my portfolio needs to expand to embrace those portraits. What does that mean? It means that I am offering three lucky dancers a $1000 gift voucher to my portrait studio in west Asheville, that's what.
