Last week, I was thrilled to photograph The Art of the Teese, an incredible burlesque show featuring the legendary glamour girl herself: Dita Von Teese. I have been a fan of Dita since before I started my photography business, and her book "Burlesque and the Art of the Teese" has been an immeasurable influence on my art and my career. What a treat to not only photograph her, but also her amazing cast, including Dirty Martini, Violet Chachki, Ginger Valentine, Zelia Rose, Jett Adore, and Jonny McGovern. From glittering rhinestones to confetti cannons, from high glam costuming to stunning near-nudity, this show really delivered! Take a peek at some of the images I captured of Dita and her cast performing at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, CO.
I absolutely ADORE Fannie Spankings! She is a Denver burlesque performer who is quite the accomplished lady. When Fannie signed up for last year's The Clocktower Series, I was thrilled to photograph this stunning beauty on her home turf!
These images are all in color because I can't imagine any of them in black and white! Fannie's colorful personality shines through and the beautiful Clocktower is a stunning backdrop for her style. If you want to sign up for your own spot in my next Clocktower Series, be sure to sign up soon! There are only 2 spots left ;)
My friend Shan de Leers is a burlesque performer in Nashville, and she had the brilliant idea of doing an outdoor photo shoot in her custom Playboy bunny costume. We had the perfect location and with just the right light and posing, we made pinup photography magic! Shan's makeup by Alicia Maynard.
