Travis Magee has been photographing dance since he was sixteen years old when he was recruited to create work for the Genesis Dance Company. Since then, he has been training and working as a professional dancer and dance photographer. As a dancer, Mr. Magee had the honor of being a member of the Lucinda Childs Dance Company as well as a frequent guest performer for the Metropolitan Opera Ballet.
As a photographer, Travis Magee’s work has been shared throughout the world, where he has enjoyed international acclaim for his unique vision of dance imagery. His work is based on the concept of capturing real-life kinetic movement in order to elicit complex emotions. As a result, all of Mr. Magee's photography is achieved in one choreographed shot, and he does not use Photoshop to manipulate or construct his images.
