With a saturated market for photographers, it's hard to really make your work stand out. French photographer Dimitry Roulland, however, has done a fantastic job making his work unique and unforgettable. Aside from being a superb photographer, Roulland is a very talented dancer and gymnast as well. Combining his two talents together allows him to create art you've never seen before.
What makes his work different than other dance photographers are the locations he chooses. All images were taken in and around Paris, which adds so much depth to every single portrait and really compliments the subject in a special way. Even if the dance doesn't speak to you here, the way he composes the dancer with the scenery is epic. As stated before, for Roulland, it is all about combining photography with dance. This is an important lesson every photographer should take. If you have a hobby or talent aside from photography, think of a way to combine the two. This can lead to astounding results making you stand out in a saturated market.
You can follow Roulland's work on Facebook, 500px, or Instagram. He also has a second Instagram account where you can follow his dance and gym activity. If I could trade my photography for this kinda stuff I'd likely do it in a heartbeat.
