Audience Favorite, Education Outreach Opportunity
A holiday tradition with unforgettable music, The Nutcracker provides an entry point into ballet for many future patrons. This highly-anticipated family event also creates high community interaction and visibility for Tulsa Ballet. Donors with an education focus see  consistent education outreach to low-income students, providing tickets to see the ballet.

For some students, this is the first time they have ever seen a fine arts performance. Great stories, great smiles.

A Demanding Shoot
Photographing dancers requires split-second timing. These incredible athletes execute complex maneuvers in midair, hitting a specific mark, over and over again. Their consistency made the shoot a delight as we captured the amazing athleticism and artistry.

This level of precision comes directly from the influence of Tulsa Ballet’s Artistic Director, Marcello Angelini. You can see Marcello zooming in on the remote viewer, ensuring every pose is absolutely perfect.Costumes help bring the story to life, and the designs are always stunning to photograph.

So what’s your story? Let’s tell tell it together.
