At Dean Agar photography studio in Bulimba, 8km from Brisbane CBD.

What do I get? 

A chance to be photographed by multi award winning photographer Dean Agar, Brisbane’s leading portrait photographer. All who participate receive a COMPLIMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION and will be included in the book “The Beauty & Elegance of Dance” .
You will also receive a $150 gift certificate to be used towards any prints or products that you decide to purchase for yourself as a THANK YOU.

Can I purchase photographs?

Yes of course. You have the opportunity to purchase photographs at a viewing session that we will have right after your session, so you do not need to make a time to come back to the studio for a viewing. We will capture your child in a range of classic and contemporary styles, both in dance poses and portraiture. There is no obligation to purchase any images at all. You will only know if you wish to purchase once you have seen the results, but be prepared, as we know you will love them, and may wish to purchase many of them. As a guide most clients invest upwards of $395.

What do we need to bring? 

Please bring a few dance costumes plus casual and formal outfits for your child. Suggestions are a tutu, leotard, lyrical dress, unitard, romantic tutu for girls in light colours like white or cream or in black. Unitard or black dance pants & singlet for boys. We have a few lovely dresses to suit girls size 6 – 12 which you are welcome to use for portraits. Please avoid busy patterns, spots, stripes and large logos as they detract from the subject. Stick to neutral colours if possible although your child can have fun with their casual outfit. I am happy to discuss this with you over the phone.

How long do you keep the photographs for? 

Photos are kept for a month from your shoot date. 

Can I include other children or the family?

Of course. You are most welcome to bring in your other children or the entire family to be a part of this experience and get some great family images while you are here. Please let me know in advance so that we can allow enough time to photograph everybody. 

Can I book on a weekend? 

We take bookings on weekends and weekdays. We do not charge any extra for weekend bookings.

How long does a session take? 

Most sessions will take around an hour and then 30 minutes to view the images after the session..

What our past clients have had to say about us. 

“Karen called me within a day of enquiring about a session with Dean, and booked a time that suited me. On arrival I was straight into hair makeup with the very very talented Carla Zakrzewski and talked about what I wanted out of the shoot. Everyone was chatty friendly and open to my ideas. Both Karen and Dean were very professional and great at making me feel comfortable, I think we even had a chat about the GFC whilst I was posing in lingerie which surprisingly didn’t even seem wierd haha. After the shoot it was a very simple selection process, Dean has great skills in colour, Photoshop and bringing the most out in a photograph. the prints arrived in a beautiful box within the week and they looked so amazing, and once my partner got a hold of them lets just say he hasn’t left me alone since.”

“Thank you Dean & Karen for my photo shoot on Friday morning with you. I was a great way to spend my 4th Wedding Anniversary!

You were both very welcoming & made me feel very comfortable, even after 3 years of hating my body after having my son & dared me to be bold with a portrait style I would never imagine I would do!

I cannot wait to see the finished images.

PS/: Dean… You are a very passionate fellow BRIT!!!”

“I picked up my photos from the post office yesterday afternoon. They are just beautiful.

Many thanks to you both for a wonderful experience. I must also thank your makeup artist for being so friendly and welcoming. Not to mention what an awesome result she achieved for me. I am sure I will treasure these photos for a long time to come.

I would recommend this experience for anyone.
