With the theatrical demeanour that Burlesque brings, when Robyn invited me to come along and photograph her class, I was certainly intrigued and it wasn’t an event I had photographed before, although I have shot dancers, concerts, festivals and nightclubs so it fitted the general description of techniques required!
For the photos download or for those just wanting to see, head over to the link in the top right under “events” (Still figuring out my web design, so this may change in the future).
My first photo shoot in Barcelona was with the lovely Valeria, although there was a slight barrier of language. My grasp on Spanish at the time was near to terrible so the ability to communicate poses and positions was down to Google translate and a whole lot of hand gestures.
Despite the struggle, it paid off and here’s how the single outfit shoot 03went. It was also a night shoot, which with my nightclub photography background made me feel a little nostalgia!
