Poledancing competitions are a tricky one – fast movement combined with typically moody lighting are a real challenge, and timing of shots becomes crucial as you need to catch the moves at their apex to really show off the performers – without the opportunity for a second take.
Needless to say though, when Daniel Rosen (Pole instructor and performer extraordinare) approached me to ask if I'd like to shoot the event stills for the first outing of the new Heir to the Chrome competition I leapt at the chance. Whilst event days are nerve wracking experiences they're also a heap of fun. With the hilarious compere Glory Pearl running the show front of house and Daniel and Mitch backstage managing the venue and performers it was a superb day out, running very smoothly and with fantastic performances from all involved.
Fingers crossed I'm invited back next year as I can't wait to shoot it all again!
