That Girl at the Club (NSFW)

Christina has been my colleague for a couple of years now, performing make-up duties for a number of projects. She’s also a dancer as well as an all-around great kid.

After all that time, she finally managed to persuade herself she should try standing in front of the camera, instead of being somewhere behind, usually shooting embarrassing backstage footage on her smartphone.

Indumentum Oris (NSFW)

Here are some samples from a photo-shoot we did some time ago with A.M.

We set it up in a theatrical theme with the masks introducing the element of identity, truth, and interaction. Are the masks we wear our habitual protection from reality? What about the faces we wear every day? And how about, even, the naked skin: does it reveal or conceal the truth in us?

Portraits of a Troupe: Introducing PurgARTorium with AcrOdance

This is the first part from a project I did a few weeks ago, with the extremely talented team from Acrodance.

Acrodance  by Anna Omiridi is a brilliant combination of acrobatics and creative dance. Acrobatic routines are integrated seamlessly into choreographies with emphasis on guided improvisation. The main concept of this approach is that movement and exercise, as creative expressions, hold a significant role in human lives and help in structuring positive self-awareness and knowledge of oneself. Thus strengthening your body and building your muscles will allow you to experience mental uplift.

There is an anecdote, about a documentary photographer -who's name I can't remember, unfortunately- being inquired if he used "available light" in one picture. His answer goes something like this: "yes, it was available light, I had a speedlite available so I used that".

A pole-dancing shooting

Pole dancing has emerged, during the last decade or so, as a very popular fitness trend, slowly but surely washing away the stigma of night and strip club connection. A growing number of young -and not so young- women, and, in recent times, also men, choose it as their favorite fitness pursuit. Thus, it is not peculiar that, as a modern sport, "vertical dance" as it is sometimes called, is even considered as a full Olympics event.
