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.
