Firstly, I hope this post doesn’t offend anyone. I’m working on how it is best to showcase these types of images without mixing them too much with my regular family friendly images. I’m talking about boudoir images – sensual, flattering, feel good portraits for women (and perhaps also their men!).
At a recent wedding that I was photographing, I was sat next to a guy that with a couple of his friends owns a photography studio located in South Germany. We kept in touch after the wedding to try and work out a time when I could go and visit and see what they were up to over there. With my weekends booking up fast I headed out last weekend whilst I had the time. It was well worth it – great space! I felt like a kid in the best playroom ever there. Not only was I treated like a VIP, they had also arranged a lovely girl to come and play with me to test out the space for boudoir type images.
I conclude that is is a great space for Boudoir pictures! The studio is located a few hours away from Basel though, but if there were a bunch of girls interested in this, then we could organise a minibus and make a day of it. I am not going to post too many images and mostly ones that are less revealing. We had a great white background set, a black room, wallpapered section with lovely chairs, slatted blinds, natural light window and a cast iron bed. Loads of options and combinations! There was even a white vespa which looked great on the white background.
I’ve already got some great plans for more of this work this year. We can work 1:1 in your own home, I’ve also worked in groups – something to get excited about with your girlfriends – the planning, the shopping, the actual day having mates to giggle with and of course share the bubbly with! Other options other than the studio might include working with hotels and making a day of it with individuals or small groups. The options are endless.. Expect more on this topic this year, in the meantime here are some piccies:
