Rebecca had the opportunity to work with a wide range of photographers while dancing in Australia. This is where her passion for the positive and fun experience of photoshoots began. Photography enabled confidence to build and more performance opportunities to arise. Through this experience Rebecca was able to learn how to transfer images from the 3D space into 2D images. Once returning to New Zealand she discovered that there were limited possibilities for young dancers to gain this amazing experience. Out of this, Inspired Dance Images was born.
