Carlisle Dance Photography

Dance Photography in Carlisle

We have been photographing dance and theatrical shows in Carlisle for several years now. Get in touch to see how we can help for your upcoming show.

Fast Action, with low and changing lights can make for a difficult photographic environment. Keltic Rose photography has a proven track record of working with these difficult conditions.

From group photo printing at the concert to online sales, Keltic Rose Photography can deliver all of your requirements.

Working with you through rehearsals and live shows we try anticipating moves before they happen, capturing the best of the action.

Why Choose Keltic Rose Photography for Dance Photography?

I could give a number of reasons, but for many families, it comes down to three things.

1. Fun, one of the words that is often used by customers who have had photos sessions with Keltic Rose Photography is great fun

2. Quality, there are many photographers out there, and I believe that I take excellent quality photographs which capture beautiful moments in time.

3. Cost, I may not be the cheapest photographer in the area but I believe I give fantastic value for money.

Dance Photo Sessions are only £50 and this includes the photo session (either in the studio or outdoors), a complimentary mounted 7″ x 5″ photograph of your choice.



Lovely photographer! Absolutely amazing photos. I love working with Allan, he always makes sure his dancers are comfortable! Such a kind and caring man. Amazing photos every time, couldn’t recommend a better photographer in Carlisle!! 😊


How it works

1. Agree and arrange a date

At this time you need to pay the deposit fee which secures your date. This is £50 and I send an invoice for you to pay via credit card, bank transfer, or we can arrange for you to come to the studio with cash.

2. On the day

On the date agreed you and the family (friendly dogs as well) come along to the studio or to an outdoor venue that we have agreed.

3. During the session

Family portrait sessions usually last about 45 minutes but bank on being in the studio for a little over an hour. We have some fun and I take photographs of all of the family, then of groups then of individuals and any other ideas you might have.

During the session if in the studio you have full use of the studio, there is a changing room, props, and a number of backgrounds – if interested do ask about these when you arrange your session, the default is a studio white background.

4. At the end of the session

At the end of the photo session I will take the remainder of the session fee. This can again be paid by card, bank transfer, or cash.

5. Viewing your images

Up to 2 weeks later I put your photos in a password-protected area, give you the password and you can choose your complimentary 7″ x 5″ photo. 

6. After ordering images

Once you have ordered your photographs sit back and a couple of weeks later I will in most cases hand deliver your pictures. If you need a photo urgently let me know and we will see what can be done.
