With the pole exercise the aesthetics and elegance of the body forms some beautiful shapes and lighting the body beautifully with creative photography lighting enhances the shapes to give a sculpted look. Great photography is about lighting more than camera technique, this is Paul’s strength and his main focus is to create beautifully lit subject.

Shown on this page is a selection from one shoot so you can see the variety of shots created. The black background works well with having the final photos as colour or back & white whereas the white background is particularly suited to pure black white photography. We can also use colour gels also to create multi coloured photos.

Group photo vertical  pole shoots:

The most economical way is to get together with a few of your dance class buddies for a group photo shoot where each lady has 20-30 mins of photography time.  We can do these photo shoots at our photography studio or at your dance studio or other suitable space, you supply the pole as we don’t posses one. Prices are £125 each depending on the size of the group and what we agree to create. The £125 includes up to half hour for each pole artist and 5 high res edits. How many pictures we do for each person depends on how many poses they can muster in the time. All packages can be tailored to what each group would like and I am always happy to listen to your ideas. I look at this as a collaboration of two art forms; pole and photography. We will create an online gallery following the shoot where the participants can view the proofs and choose their 5 to be edited. Additional high res edited photos can be ordered at £28 each.
