About Me

The Story of Your Photographer

Hi, I am Brian Balloon!

Welcome to my photography portfolio and thank you for visiting!

My initial interest in dance started when I was back in California and took elective courses of Jazz Piano and Jazz Dance after college. I remember I put my enthusiasm into them and got an "A" out of the classes and that confirmed, to me, that I had some dance potential! After marriage and moving to Dallas a couple decades later, I received my own camera. I began portraits by attending Instagram model photography workshops and progressed to capturing movement by working with dancers around the DFW area, attending conferences, and being inspired by their beautiful movements and dedication to their art.

Capturing images and video that you love is my goal as your photographer.
