It’s been a busy couple of weeks for me.
I started the photo shoots for my burlesque book project with the lovely Millie Dollar. We started off doing hair and make up at Miss Dixibelle with hair by the lovely Vanity Thrills Vintage Hair and make up by Ivory Lovelust. We then moved onto Ghillie Dhu to do the shoot.
Firstly we shot a film noir inspired look with outfit from Miss Dixibelle….
We then moved onto photographing Millie’s ‘Dior’ inspired burlesque costume for my book….
And finally onto some latex pieces. A Sailor inspired outfit for Cathouse Latex then a red dress for the amazing Jane Doe.
The next day it was then onto shooting Missy Malone’s burlesque show at the Voodoo Rooms. The Voodoo Rooms is a very intimate venue and is quite hard to photograph good live burlesque shots but I was pretty happy with the lighting and got some of the best burlesque shots I’ve taken at the venue. I’ve been taking a lot more close up shots of performers recently so I decided to use my 70-200mm f2.8 lens. Here are a few of my faves from the night….
I will be putting the rest up on my Flickr soon!
This week I am mostly working at my call centre job, chasing, emailing then a shoot on Sunday! I never stop 🙂
