Ballet Photography by Vihao Pham

Capturing the beauty and magic of ballet is not an easy task. It requires a unique set of skills, a good eye for composition, and an understanding of how to capture the grace and elegance of the dancers. However, Vihao Pham – a photographer based in McLean, Virginia – has managed to excel in this field of dance photography. His ballet photography is unique, inspiring and captures the essence of dance in ways that few photographers can.

Ballet has always been a passion for Vihao. As a photographer, he found capturing the beauty of this art form challenging yet rewarding. There is something magical about the way dancers move – their bodies are in constant motion, but with a grace and fluidity that is hard to articulate in words.


Vihao’s Photography Style

One of the things that make Vihao’s work unique is his ability to capture movement. His photographs freeze the moment and show the beauty of the ballet dancer’s lines and shapes. His style is natural and elegant, with a focus on conveying the emotions and mood of the dance.

Vihao’s work is also characterized by his use of lighting. He understands the importance of lighting in photography, and his ballet photos have a play of light and shadow that gives them depth and texture. The lighting creates a dramatic effect that is both captivating and striking.

The images are also focused on color. Vihao’s photographs are not just about capturing the movements and beauty of the dancers, but they also highlight the subtle hues in the costumes and stage setting, creating a harmonious composition that complements the dancer’s movements.

    • Errr, Jake . . . you might want to know how old the model is before you start speaking so enthusiastically about a felony.

      And though I know you meant “tear her up” as a statement of interest, lemme tell you — it’s a phrase that just gives most women the creeps. Try “I wanna make her scream my name” — it’s just as torrid and a lot less suggestive of abuse.

    • I think she was 15 or 16 during that shoot. She’s a very pretty girl and the photo does convey a sense of sensuality, your comment is nothing but crude.

  1. commenter above me needs to leave, the rest of us who appreciate ballet can stay

  2. These works are fantastic. The 5th picture down looks like Terra off of Buffy the Vampire Slayer :)

  3. I love that in the last photo, the dancers shoes are tattered and worn. Shows character and makes her more interesting to look at.

  4. And here I thought I’d seen the best of ballet photography with Gene Schiavone. There’s just something about these. They’re not just pictures of ballerinas in performance, they’re glimpses into a dancer’s world. Simply amazing.

  5. This is amazing. How young they are! It’s absolutely stunning. I’m so jealous! I always regret not starting ballet at a young age.

  6. Absolutely love the third picture down. All these photos are amazing…

  7. What a great collection. I especially love the still of the ballerina in the phone booth.

  9. To Vihao Pham of McLean, Virginia:

    I hope you have a local show of your photography some day. I’m not too far from you, and I need to see these in person. Your perspective is something I want to see a whole lot more of. Congratulations on publishing such a beautiful portfolio.

    • Do you dance or do you do photography? I don’t do shows so most of my stuff is online.
