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 :-).
