For a long time I have been requested to add a stripper pole set to my boudoir studio. I was hesitant for a while because I wanted make sure that my style could be represented in this set. I want my boudoir images to be sexy and classy, nothing that someone might regret later in life.
So how to keep the concept of a strip club from becoming raunchy was the challenge. The solution was actually more obvious that I thought. Just keep the poses classy. Sometimes you just can’t see the shot until you try it.
So stripper pole set was created. Use a variant of my musician stage set lighting to create a mood. Colored gels and grids for control allowed me to get the look. Then some time in Photoshop to bring the club into the set. And viola!
