Johan provides a stress free, supportive environment to create photos that show off the best aspects of you as a dancer. During my shoot, I never felt pressured or rushed but instead I felt supported as he provided me with encouragement and corrections to create the best looking shots as well as taking ample time to find out what I was strongest at. The photos produced were amazing and highlighted all my strengths as a dancer, I would highly recommend Johan to dancers looking for audition photos!

Johan took my audition photos, he created exceptional photos with brilliant lighting and I could not be happier with them- thank you Johan!
Ferne Clifton, Central School Of Ballet
Working with Johan has been an extraordinary experience: his unique, compelling and dynamic shoots were fundamental for me to start a new life as a professional ballet dancer!
Martina Marini, La Scala Ballet School
Shooting for my audition photos with Johan was so exciting. His lighting is clean and striking and ensures you look at your best, but most importantly his understanding of dance, whether it be timing the shot to perfection, or making you feel inspired and at ease is second to none.
Matthew Ball, The Royal Ballet School
As a student preparing to go out into the world getting the right audition photographs is so important. Having the opportunity to have them taken by someone as wonderful as Johan Persson was an honour. As a hugely successful dancer himself I felt like he could capture me at my best. I hope to work with him again one day.
Claire Calvert, The Royal Ballet School
I had the pleasure of working with Johan Persson to create my portfolio of audition photos during my graduate year at the Royal Ballet School. Being a former ballet star himself he was the perfect person for this task giving me clear and helpful directions throughout the shoot and knowing exactly what lines and angles would turn out best. He had plenty of ideas for poses and jumps while encouraging me to try out my own ideas too. I would highly recommend him and am sure you will be delighted with the results!
