Another day, another fantastic opportunity to shoot one of the well known names in UK poledance, the brilliant Deb Riley.
Deb runs The British Poledance Academy in Stoke on Trent, an enormous and quite frankly superb place to train which she’s built up over the years through tremendous dedication and hard work.
My first time at the BPA, so we were all set up to shoot on a white backdrop, but once getting there their mini stage, seating area and studio ambience really got me thinking and I can’t wait to get back there to make more use of the environment as it really is fantastic!
One of the things I want to work on more are contextualised shots of performers, rather than isolated studio shots. They’re not quite as popular but it’s an avenue I want to explore as it will present a whole raft of new options.
