Alison Cook Beatty
ACB Dance Company
“Working with Tristan was a great experience. Tristan had a lot of energy. As a dancer and choreographer I really appreciated that and felt the work we were doing together had a great momentum. He was extremely professional. And a perfectionist in the best way one could be. It was fun, exciting, and he was right there physically in the shoots with me. One minute he would be on the floor, the next minute he would be up, then running to the other side of the room to catch the perfect light or angle. He was all over the place. It was great working off of his youthful energy and passion. He loves dance, he loves people, and he loves life. It comes out in his photography. He gave great direction, and I enjoyed collaborating with him. Tristan has been very supportive of the dance company I direct, Alison Cook Beatty Dance, and I am very thankful to him as well for his support. “
“Tristan Pope is a brilliant young talent in the photography and video world. I have done several dance collaborations with him and experienced not only superb end results, but he was also extremely efficient to work with and quick to complete/share the finals products. I highly recommend Tristan for any collaboration.”

“From start to finish, my experience with Tristan was fantastic. A super fun day of shooting, and the end results blew me away. I’m so happy to have these photos, and I have gotten a ton of great responses. Having photos like these are so valuable for my industry, I am so grateful to have them.”

Tristan is an organized, thoughtful, and open minded artist. He’s easy to work/collaborate with and has a great personality! I’ve worked with him on more than one occasion and have fully enjoyed each project we did together.

“Tristan is incredibly professional with a strong sense of creativity. He thinks ahead when planning projects and comes well prepared. He is very thorough and timely with his projects. He maintains a sense of leadership and direction and yet allows for input.”
“True professional with a calm welcoming energy so you can let your nerves go and let your creativity fly with his. He has a sharp eye for angle and light. “

“I don’t know if I would ever have made it this far without your head shots … so in turn… I love you!
“Working with Tristan is always a fun experience. He is knowledgable about dance, which makes the collaboration even more productive and enjoyable. Tristan is patient, yet always pushes towards a goal and is a great motivator.”

“Tristan is an incredibly gifted and passionate photographer. I have always been fascinated by the world of glamour photography but had never modeled before. My glamour session with Tristan turned out to be amazingly fun. He was very helpful in providing tips on how to look natural in a glamour shot. The photos turned out beautifully and I have never dreamt to be able to look like that. It was a privilege to work with Tristan and I hope I will have the opportunity to do so again in the future.”

Dancer at Natalie In Motion
“Tristan definitely has a clear vision on set, but is fluid enough to allow nature to take its course. This allows for really amazing and personal sessions. Personable and professional, one can only expect a quality product from this highly invested artist.”
Co-Director at TAWK Theater/Daughter to Original Fantasticks Producer
“Tristan is an amazing director. The production of The Fantasticks was a tribute to my father’s original Off-Broadway production. I have seen other people produce/direct The Fantasticks, but it was not a pleasant experience! Tristan’s direction brought his production to life—the changes were refreshing and he is a tireless and diligent leader.”
David J Durand

“Tristan is an extremely passionate and talented artist, photographer, designer, and video and film director. When I worked with him at Blizzard Entertainment, he was a generous and committed team player, a highly creative inspiration and collaborator, and an asset to any project he was part of. It was a pleasure and a privileged to work with him.”
