It seems that everywhere Michelle Gibson goes she brings her infectious energy that all who come in her presence can never forget. Michelle's energy and passion are matched by few when it comes to dance.

Choreographer, educator, and performing artist, she received her BFA in Dance from Tulane University and her MFA in Dance from Hollins University/ The American Dance Festival at Duke University. 

Her teaching practice and choreographic works range from genres of the African Diaspora, Contemporary / Traditional Modern, Afro Funk, Jazz, and her own New Orleans Second Line Aesthetic. 

Cultivating her craft over the past years in an effort to preserve her culture Michelle has been teaching and creating works that are firmly rooted in New Orleans culture and has defined this idea as her own “Second Line Aesthetics ” that she has determined involves both technical and improvised movement, brass music and the embrace of communal ritual.

Sharing her culture aboard Michelle was invited September 2015 to Rennes France teaching her New Orleans Second Aesthetics and Guest Lecture with the Compagnie Engrenage and the festival Le Funk Prend Les Rennes (translated the Funk Takes the Reins).

The festival honored and focused on the brass band culture of New Orleans both music and dance also focusing on Nigerian Afrobeat .

A five year faculty member with American Dance Festival and currently a candidate working towards receiving the Katherine Dunham Technique Certification she has had wonderful opportunities teaching, lecturing, and setting choreography at various intensives, institutions and universities not to mention choreography for several theater companies and live entertainment organizations locally, in the U.S and internationally.

If there is one thing I can say about 2015 it is that it went by so fast! I guess it is true that when you are having fun time goes by fast and we had a lot of fun in 2015. I am always amazed that every year that I have been a photographer I always learn something new, have new experiences, go through new doors. 

In 2016 Omar Ramos Photography begins the year with a new partnership with Telethia Hurley to form Hurley-Ramos Wedding and Event Photography.

The Selfie

No matter how great your smart phone takes photos along with myriad of apps to beautify an image please for the love all things chocolate do not use a selfie to represent your professional profile. Professional networking sites such as LinkedIn prides itself as the premiere B2B site for individuals and corporations to connect. So why am I seeing duck lips on profiles trying to connect with me professionally? I don't get it, I know I may be a little old fashion but I believe business networking should be done as professional as possible.

It is your online resume and in a resume you are presenting individuals and corporations your intent of providing professional services for them. So I guess the point I am trying to make is that it is worth the investment of getting a professional headshots made so people can take your professional profile seriously.  Whether employed, seeking employment, entrepreneur your goal is to grab the attention to whom you are marketing to.

Here is a link to a great article on how does appearance affect an interview: www.ehow.com/how-does_4565423_appearance-affect-interview.html

Marketing You

Omar RamosComment

Team at Esquire Court Reporting

It is refreshing to get outside of the box and present fresh and engaging photos. Marketing to a select few is  just plain bad business, but creating inviting environments on social media, websites and print campaigns trends acceptance over the buying public. Utilizing everyday locations where many of us work and play gives a message to the common man that we (the corporation) are here with you. A big thanks to Esquire Court Reporting for moving out of the comfort zone for this campaign.
