We had the opportunity to create something special for Jeremy’s professional dance headshots. He has been traveling to out of state auditions and needed some new headshots. Visualizing the perfect location and lighting with an edge, we set out to bring the best out in the talented dancer for this shoot. He’s got some moves, this was a fun shoot!
To his surprise, he wasn’t as naturally gifted in dance as he was in baseball and soccer.
“I took my first ballet class and hated it,” he recalls. “I was so sore afterwards. I didn’t know a plié from a tendu.”
Dance became a hobby, then a passion and finally a career goal for Zapanta. He auditioned for professional ballet companies after graduating from high school and performed in regional productions of The Nutcracker.
