My name is Hannah and I am the person behind Hannah Todd Photography. In 2009 I bought my first camera following the passing of my grandma and since then I have loved taking photos of, well, just about anything!
My main specialty however, is dance and performer photography.
For years, I have admired the grace and beauty of dancers and performers, and the shapes they can create and through my love of photography I have been able to work with some of the best dancers all across the country to create some gorgeous images. I have always loved dance, but as I have the grace of a baby elephant, it's not been something I have ever personally been any good at. Although by working with dancers in my photography I have been able to take this love and turn it into the business I have today!
From young dancers just starting out their journey for fun all the way up to professional dancers in some of the best companies in the world, I love working with people to bring out the best in them, try things they never thought possible and create stunning images to last a lifetime. Be it a simple static pose, or a truly magnificent jump, timeless images to cherish is what I always hope to create during sessions.
During my career I have had the honour of working with some amazing people.
From working with schools such as VA Performing Arts, Dancewise Performing Arts and SB Dance Middlesborough, working alongside dance brands such as Bloch, Dancewear Central and Dainty Dance, executing audition sessions for dancers applying to some of the biggest schools in the country including Elmhurst, Royal Ballet and Laine Theatre Arts, coverage of events as part of the official photography team such as Move It including the opportunity to photograph the class of the incredible Brandon Lawrence, Principle dancer at Birmingham Royal Ballet as well as capturing images of the incredible Russian State Ballet of Siberia!
It's been a wild ride..... I cannot wait to see what else my career has in store!
So if you are looking for a portfolio session just for you, headshots ahead of new castings, a group of mini sessions for your school, coverage of your competition or a show you want to remember forever, drop me a message and lets create some magic!
I look forward to hearing from you!
