The Artist

Head_023 SMALL.jpg

I believe in creating beautiful Fine Art dance portraits and capturing both the amazing ability and passion for the art of Dance. From classical ballet to modern, from urban street dance to freestyle. My dance shoots focus on creating a unique and stylish portfolio displaying your individual skills. Open to all ages and ability, whether you're in need of a professional portfolio or your little ones are just starting their journey. 

Stephanie Thornton has been working as a photographer from just 14 years old, working in studio's specializing with Fine Art artistic cinematic lighting. She turned to Dance photography by accident in 2016 and as such Wild Berry Dance Photography grew. Stephanie believes in creating dramatic styled photographs that capture the beauty, muscle and passion each dancer has. 





In any artistic industry it is so important to stand out from the crowd. That is why I believe each dancer deserves a truly unique experience and portfolio. Dance is an art form where many people create the same position but with dramatically different results. I believe each shoot should represent you as a dancer, at the stage you're at on your journey. I always create new styles in each shoot and love to incorporate ideas from you too!


Shoots can use used for personal artistic images, creating beautiful works of art for your walls and memories to cherish. We can also focus more on portfolio and technical images that will carry you forward through your career and make you stand out on social media

We always offer special offers and packages combining both Fine Art quality printing and digital files, so I always work something out to suit everyone. Mum can have her art piece for the wall and you get have your digital images to dominate social media!

How much is a shoot?

Please see my session pricing here

What do I wear?

When you book your shoot I will send over a clothing guide with all the details of what to bring. I always suggest to bring a few options so we can pick and choose what will work best.

What if I don't know how to pose?

Do not panic, I will help guide you and pose you throughout the shoot to make sure we have the best images! 

What shoes shall I bring?

My preference is bare feet or pointe shoes, but feel free to bring anything else if you feel it will add to your shoot

Do I have to be really flexible?

Not at all, I have worked with dancers of all abilities. I am happy to help guide you through poses that look amazing for all ability types. 

Can there be more than one of us?

Multiple dancers in a shoot is welcome, especially in the case of duo's or siblings. However please bare in mind the time and that each dancer will be sharing the time.
