My name is Rachael Dyer, also known as Movita Beaucoup. I am a dance photographer living in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I'm a graduate of the Teacher Training Program at Canada's National Ballet School and taught dance in Toronto and the Maritimes for almost 30 years. When you book a shoot with me you are hiring a photographer AND a dance coach. I draw on decades of teaching experience to help you with posing and fine tuning your technique.
I accept bookings from dancers aged 12 years and older (by the date of your shoot). I have a limited number of shoot available for 10-11 year olds each season, in addition to mini sessions for younger dancers. Several years of training is recommended in order to get the most out of your session. I shoot all sorts/genres of dance.
Your fully edited photos will be delivered via USB and digital download gallery. Digital files are generally available within 5-6 weeks from the session. I do not release RAW or unedited images from shoots.
I typically shoot in HRM, Nova Scotia but will happily consider travelling to other locations (in NS or another province). There will be additional fees if booking a shoot outside of HRM. Get in touch to discuss options.
If you're a dancer from outside of HRM and would like to travel here for your shoot, please let me know so we can adjust session times around your drive/schedule. I can also assist with selecting locations if you aren't familiar with the area.
