Delaney Hawley has always been photographing. She began leaning into her portrait work about seven years ago, pivoting then to musicals, and again to ballet. She has worked with regional studio groups, but especially prefers capturing dancers in more unique settings off-stage. Most recently, Laney has been working extensively with local musical greats, WINEHOUSE. Overall, she appreciates the unique challenge of dynamic lighting and high-motion subjects that continually compel her to experiment and adapt her work. She deeply connects her love of music to her photography, as she draws inspiration from her favorite performances, tracks, and album art to drive her shoots.
