Dances of Vice is and entertainment company producing high-end vintage inspired events all around New York City. It is my pleasure to attend and shoot these events. They force me to be extremely familiar with my camera settings and quick to shoot. These girls move fast, and we’re all on a boat in the dark. Getting these shots is definitely tricky and a lot of luck. Here are some of my favorites. The next Burlesque Cruise is on September 11th. visit http://www.dancesofvice.com for more information.
Last night was the start of something wonderful! Stockholm Filly, Foxy Vermouth, Pearls Daily, and Lickitty Split made their debut as The Lean Mean Strip Machine! Their show was inspired by music from The Big Mean Sound Machine’s album, Marauders. They took the audience on a silent film style show of epic proportions. Expect amazing things from this group of stunning ladies!
Last weekend I spent the day at the Coney Island Mermaid Parade. The day was beautiful and I had rented and borrowed some new lenses from Adorama and a friend. It was so much fun being able to get up close to the parade participants and take their photos. I was not attempting to get NSFW photos, and honestly none of the participants were very risqué even if they weren’t wearing tops. Everyone was tasteful and having fun. What a wonderful way to kick off the summer!
When I started my photography class, I really wanted to shoot burlesque performers and circus performers. The spectacle of it all was very attractive to me. I reached out to Wassabasco Burlesque because I wanted to shoot their Bathtub Gin Show, but they respectfully turned me down. I was finally able to shoot one of their models at the NY Pinup Club’s Film Noir shoot and I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to the group!
