Posing for Pole
February 17 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Mynx Academy is thrilled to have Pole Portraits with Insomniac Studios on February 24th! With that in mind, I am offering this posing workshop specifically geared toward photo shoots on Pole. This workshop is open to all pole dancers, whether you are signed up for the portrait sessions or not! The photo shoot is sold out, but this workshop could still serve you for future photo shoots.
Pole shoots can be much more challenging than some may expect. In this workshop I will share with you some general tips for posing on pole and also help you find the best shapes and angles for you as an individual.
I suggest thinking it over and making a list of tricks you would hope to be photographed in. Consider looking through pole photos of others and making notes of things you like. Think of the things you are strongest and most comfortable with, the things you can hold confidently for at least a few seconds, and the things you can maintain a relaxed face or smile with. Remember this is the time to use those beautiful shapes you just can’t seem to find the perfect transition for. Also keep in mind some of the simpler grounded poses that you like seeing yourself in. Often times those make for some of the best Pole shots.
Bring any costume pieces you would like to wear and any ideas you may have for your specific vision. Please also bring your phone or camera for me to take some practice shots of you.
