A Little About Me

My name is Simon Ho and I’m a York based performing arts photographer focusing on dance and headshot work. I’ve a keen eye for elegance and over the years I’ve picked up the lingo and appreciate the technical aspects of dance, to the point where dance mums often ask if I’m ex-pro. I will pick up on things like sickled feet, turnout etc and like dance teachers I no longer understand the concept of “one more time”. I’d like to think clients will find me reassuringly passionate about getting the best out of their aspiring dancer.

I also do visits to dance schools for photoshoot and show coverage. All dance teachers need to do is provide me a space, I can setup a popup studio at your school, no cost to the school itself (parents pay only for images).

If you’ve searched for me specifically you almost certainly have been referred by a past client who can vouch for my character, please rest assured I am DBS checked, a husband and father and the most established dance photographer in my area. In the small world of dance we almost certainly have several mutual acquaintances, do get in touch and let’s get to know each other & work together.

Wedding Pricing

If you like my natural approach to wedding photography I can be hired alone or with a 2nd photographer or even if you wished to combine my style with other photographer (have the best of both worlds) and hire me as the 2nd photographer. All my wedding packages come with a complimentary disc with your hi-resolution processed images (typically over 150). Clients are of course not obliged to purchase prints from me but of course the lab prints I source will be far superior to typical online/supermarket printers.
