Too long ago now I got together with a good friend, and up and coming burlesque star August Wiled to romp through the backwoods of the Fraser Valley and find some beautiful spots to pull off a shoot in. I think we found a few..
Definitely stand by what I’ve said before that dancers really do know how to explore poses in front of a lens, it was a pleasure to work with her, and get to know what makes August, August. She was professional and came with a whole bag of clothes to wear, she wasn’t shy, and she flaunted it.
The shoot happened just after August came second place in the 2012 Strip Search Vancouver burlesque competition, giving her a very big kick start to her burlesque career.
The whole shoot was shot with my trusty 50mm prime, and I had a new flash with a wireless synch that automatically fired the flash when the shutter was released that I used on some of the shots for some very light filling.
