Mountain dancing with Agathe Petrini

20140828-agathe-950

One thing I really love about living in a place like Chamonix is the amount of raw talent and creativity found in such a small place. It’s almost as if it was a magnet for slightly crazy, very talented athletes! One of them is undoubtedly Agathe Petrini, a recent graduate from a fancy Paris dance school and Chamonix local.

The natural thing to do, of course, was to go shoot dancing in the mountains! On one of the few sunny days in late August, we headed to the Aiguilles Rouges and spend the day photographing her crazy moves with beautiful backdrops of the Mont Blanc range. Here are a few outtakes from the day.

As a sidenote, Agathe will soon start offering dance lessons in Cham, I’ll be happy to forward contact info if any local reader is interested!
