 Experienced professional photographer located in the Washington DC/Northern Virginia area is looking to create a series of artistic images of ballerinas. Ballerinas should be 18 years of age or older, but only to ensure there are no issues with the commercial use of the ballerina's image.

 

The ballerina will receive finished images electronically for use as she pleases. This is a great opportunity for ballerinas to have action and headshots done at no cost.
