He soon began my placement with world renowned photographer Chris Nash in January 2008. Observed and soaked up as much as possible. This was an exciting time for him as a dancer as he was meeting professional dancers and companies such as Rambert, Bedlam and Ben Wright.
Kyle was kindly given a 25yr old set of Courtney Flash lights by a family friend and soon started experimenting. This was the beginning of a new creative journey!!
This surprisingly began to develop and lead to students seeing Kyle's work around and asking for professional looking movement portfolios and head-shots... thats where his professional interest began.
LABAN has played an influential role in Kyle's progression as a photographer. Being surrounded by passion and creativity for three years can do amazing things for someone who has just found a new instrument to express themselves.
Over the course of three years Kyle intensively studied the body, it's capabilities, it's boundaries and it's effect on space and relationships. This enables him as a photographer, the ability to communicate with dancers and choreographers with a shared understanding of movement on a personal, intuitive and passionate level.
Dance photography, for Kyle, can be just as fun and technically challenging as performing himself.
