About Cody Choi

“Follow not only the movement but breathe with the dancers” is Cody’s approach to his dance photography.

Cody’s dance photography journey started as he toured and danced around the world with Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake for 3 years. Capturing different places, theatres and fellow dancers whom he went on the road with filled his days.
As an experienced professional choreographer and dancer whose work have been performed in the Linbury Theatre at the Royal Opera House, The Place, Adidas, LG, BBC, World Dance Alliance, Greenwich Dance in London and other major venues across Europe and Asia.
He also worked as a feature dancer for two Hollywood Movie – 47 Ronin (2013), Walking on Sunshine (2014) & Doctor Strange (2017).
Cody’s photography demonstrates his acumen in dance and photography by being able to immerse himself into intimate visual dialogues with the dancers. Their relationship do not stop at the movements but extends to the dancers’ ability, state of mind and emotions.

He has been invited to host his solo exhibition at The Camera Club – one of the longest standing camera club in the world founded in 1885.

Cody has exhibited/ shooted for Ben Sherman, The Other Art Fair, Affordable Art Fair, Taipei 101,Imitate Modern, Urban Art Fair, Hong Kong Dance Alliance, Airwick, The Place Theatre, Peacock Theatre London. Kim Geung Soo Ballet Company.

Cody is also an award photographer for The Place.
