Lioness Photography was delighted to photograph Ali & Esh, two extraordinarily beautiful women. Both are professional dancers and dedicated pole dancing teachers at Inner West studio, Sydney Pole.
The results were incredible. Not only did the girls bring a fabulous wardrobe of props, pole dancing heels, jewellery, lingerie and talent, they had also shot with many of Sydney's best glamour portrait photographers, so there were no shortage of poses or ideas!
Their knowledge of pole dancing techniques and grace made for an exciting shoot. We used the the natural light of Tortuga Studios with sheer white curtains, white lingerie and flowing fabrics for the first part of the shoot.
The next chapter was using Canon cameras and Profoto studio lighting with darker themes, backdrops and lingerie. The NIkon D800 was used for bizarre double exposures, while Black and White magazine provided many references, along with the work of Helmut Newtown and contemporary American photographer, Ryan Muirhead.
