I recently had the opportunity to photograph Jillian Harvey, a phenomenal ballerina who trained at Allegheny Ballet and School of American Ballet. She became an apprentice at New York City Ballet in 2010 and joined San Francisco Ballet in 2012.
The photoshoot was for the series called “Day in a life of Ballerina”, which I will be sharing a little later.
During the day I also had a chance to take some portraits of Jillian starting with ballet studio and ending at hills overlooking Golden Gate Bridge.

Camera: Canon 5D Mark III
Lenses: Canon 85 1.2, Canon 24-70 II
