A Little About Me

My name is Simon Ho and I’m a York based performing arts photographer with a focus on elegant & balletic aesthetics. I chase the same ideals that many dancers (and their mums) have in their mind, they want to be that girl and I want to be the one who creates that image. They benefit from working with a photographer familiar with the technical aspects of dance who can help direct a pose closer to perfection and encourage a girl to look awesome while doing it.

I offer dance photoshoots & headshots at both my home studio and on-location. Ideal for the aspiring dancer to show off their skills and to build a portfolio.

I also do visits to dance schools for mini shoots and show coverage. I’m DBS checked, so dance teachers, if you can provide me a space I can provide a photoshoot day for your school, no cost to the school itself (proud parents pay for images), do get in touch.

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.
