Backless dress...

2014-02-20-FetPhotoman_300-web

Backless dress to the extreme, featuring black shiny PVC laced down the back. While conservative and stunning from the front, this dress makes a bold statement when viewed from the back.

This image is from a fetish wear ‘party dress’ photo shoot we did recently in the studio.

Makeup artist

2014-01-31-MUA_902-web copy

Working with makeup artists is great, they bring so much to a shoot and make a huge difference in creating great images.

Makeup artists are that gem behind the scenes who contribute so much. At a recent shoot, it was a great surprise when the makeup artist finished her work, then she did her own makeup, changed outfits and unexpectedly walked onto the set. For her it was a chance to get on the other side of the camera for a change. Spontaneity is always fun

Seasonal themed photo shoots are fun and popular.

2013-10-01-Dracula_Fetish_153-web

Whether it is the result of the recent popularity of the Twilight series or such classics as Dracula, Vampires are popular!

The Devil's Mistress

2013-10-01-Devils_Mistress_210-web-a

Shooting around Halloween can be quite fun. While most lingerie and boudoir photo shoots tend to be pretty similar with the traditional garter, stockings, bra and panty look. For this shoot, the model brought a Halloween lingerie theme she called “The Devil’s Mistress”.

The “Devil’s Mistress” wore a red lingerie set, black garter, stockings, and thigh big boots. Then added a formal jacket, red tie, and top hat.

A Fallen Angel

2013-06-14-Aerial-Hoop_356-web-b

At the end of a portfolio shoot with an aerial hoop performer, we wanted to try something a little different by having the performer in an artistic angelic pose, but wearing lingerie.

The concept was to create an element of tension by mixing artistic circus performance art with lingerie and a hint of the erotic.

This image entitled “A Fallen Angel” was the result.

Betty Page themed pinup shoot

2013-08-07-Evilyn13_211-web



Recently I had the opportunity to do a portfolio photo session with a well established Fetish / alt / pinup model from Vancouver.

We did two looks and outfits, but the one that was the most fun was inspired by the work of Betty Page. It was amazing how well the model was able to portray that ‘erotic yet playful Betty Page spirit’ .

Corset

2013-01-SMBeachBabe_106-web-c copy

On location photographing several models in corsets was a refreshing change from being in my studio.

This was a fun and interesting shoot with the challenge of shooting in a different space from my studio where I do most of my photography. Also, this was an opportunity to try a different lighting technique and a new light modifier with great results.

Intimate lingerie

2012-09_intimate lingerie_


Photographing a product line is a very intense and busy thing to do. For example, this image is from a shoot working with 3 professional models, makeup artist, and art director for a company that produces very intimate lingerie products. In the end, we photographed more than 30 outfits/stylels over a two day period.

boudoir for real sized women

2008_11__Brianna__610-web-RW copy
Recently a woman contacted Look Studios about doing some lingerie and semi nude photos as a gift for her partner but was unsure of booking a photo session wishing she was skinnier. She said “because I would like it not to be an issue so that I am able to use the photos as a gift”.

Most of my clients are not young and slim as presented in magazines or even my portfolio. Most are women in their 30‘s and 40‘s and are real women with busy lives, careers, and often children. Most women have a lingerie and glamour photo session as something special. Such as a gift for a partner or simply to treat themselves similar to a day at the spa.

We use creative lighting to capture any woman in the best light in a tasteful and our goal is to provide every woman images she can be proud of for years to come.

lingerie with a twist - body paint

2005_08_Paige_012_edit-web
This was a unique lingerie/body paint photo session requiring five hours of makeup and body paint. The model was photographed both in studio and then on location at Granville Island.

This was such a fun project, especially the work on location on the rooftop of the Waterfall building at Granville Island. The body paint by Sarah Burgeest and model was Paige Monroe, both of Vancouver.

Life gets better with age: women over 35

2011-01-Angie_1041-web
While most glamour magazines and photographer portfolios are filled with images of younger women, the majority of clients for romantic boudoir and lingerie photography are women between the ages of 35 to 55. Women over 35 are confident, accomplished, and often looking to create images either as a special gift for their partner, or as a fun experience for themselves.

We work with makeup artist/hair stylist to provide a full make-over experience to creating tasteful and artistic boudoir/lingerie portraits. A professional boudoir / lingerie photo session is designed for real people to create glamourous images to celebrate every body shape and age.

Honeymoom suite

2005_11_Sophia_047-RW


To create quality boudoir / lingerie / glamour images can require considerable time and effort.

Choosing lingerie that is fun, playful and sexy, hiring professional hair and makeup artist for the photo session.

In this case, rather than shoot in the studio, the model rented the honeymoon suite in a post downtown hotel for an exotic location and look.
