pole dancing photography

Hanging about on a Sunday afternoon....

Well, I am back to work after the festive period - how long ago does that seem?!  I thought a good way to get back into the swing of things would be to photograph one of my favourite hobbies! I LOVE pole dancing - for the last 18 months I have been going to the Watermelon Studio in Edinburgh.  I have met some amazing people, made some great friends AND got myself fit and achieved something in the process!

I have wanted to photograph some of our beautiful poses for a while.  Perfecting these poses takes strength and commitment.  Two of my friends show them off perfectly! So, on Sunday afternoon we got to it.  We transformed my tiny bedroom into a makeshift studio.  Space was at a premium, so we were a little restricted with lighting and poses.  A black background worked perfectly, along with reflectors and flashguns.  I think we have pulled of some great shots!

I will certainly photograph more pole again in the near future...I can see an outdoor shoot in the making! But maybe we'll leave that one til spring!! 

Massive thanks so my pole pals and to everyone at Watermelon for teaching us such a beautiful sport.
