“What Tristan is able to accomplish in just 4 hours is enough to fill out a portfolio and even provide extra content for social media.”
As an Emmy award winning director I am handed a lot of headshots. I look at them for about 3 seconds and if I think they have the look for the part I immediately search for a reel, I want to see them in motion. In a word imbued with Photoshop, nothing tells me more about someone before I meet them than film! It gives me a quick idea of their expressions, personalities, and capabilities as performers.
Some very talented people don’t have reels for one reason or another, be it cost, inability to make one, or just not having done enough work on film yet.
Those with the reel stand out from the crowd.
The same applies for my dance photography, I want to see the person in motion. A picture can only capture the peak of a move, but not the form, positioning, and technique leading up to it. All of these are extremely important for those trying to get cast in their next performance!
Tristan Pope Photography is the mastermind behind Dancers Of, a film series that took the short film festival circuit by storm. It is what inspired this beautiful evolutionary “leap” for dancers and artists to showcase their work!
My goal is to give people the opportunity to get an accurate and affordable portrayal of them, in motion, and in the perfect image! The idea here is to bypass the need to be in hundreds of performances, waiting for those performances to be released so you can add them to your reel(that you may not be equipped to do) by creating a portfolio catered to you, in an extremely timely manner, but with the quality of a leading performance!
