Pole Theatre Paris 2016

February 2016 – Paris – Pole Theatre Paris, second edition.

A wonderful competition celebrating the expression of the pole dancers. Organised by Laurence Hilsum and her team from Pole & Dance, I had the honor of photographing these wonderful althetes. I smiled, cried a bit, laughed a lot, and enjoyed this fantastic afternoon of a well organised and very friendly competition! The selection of pictures from the event is available here.



Huge print & graduation

How cool is it to see your work printed?

Pole Dance Factory Amsterdam ordered a huge print of my work for their studio, a beautiful picture of her team. Look at that, me being so proud ;-).


Something completely different…

Happy Christmas!

Snow and red outfit

For the last shoot of 2015, the girls from Verticale Balance came for a shoot at the studio. We made beautiful pictures in the pole and in the hoop, and obviously we had to make some Christmas related pictures and it was so much fun! Fake snow, red outfit and little kids and grown-up girls celebrating for the camera! Oh oh oh :-)!

Men in pole dance.

As a pole dancer, I am in admiration of the amazing athletes of our community. There are not strong women but also men, sometimes playing on the sexy side of pole or doing the most crazy tricks and acrobatics.  One of the best pole dancer in the world – earned world champion titles – and excellent choreographer from Ukraine, Alex Shchunkin is one of these dancer I am so impressed about.

A dream comes true.

So when he went for a photoshoot at my studio after International Dutch Pole Art, I felt blessed to be able to work with such a talent. I had a plan trying out new techniques like bodyscape and lightpainting but eventually we just went with the flow. Funny enough, he mainly jumped around the studio than did trick in the pole, and I was able to create fantastic images of him. Have a look at a selection of some of the images by yourself :-).
