What is Burlesque Photography?

A reader recently asked me what burlesque photography was after seeing a few other boudoir photographers offering this service.  Intrigued myself; I decided to do a little research especially as the other photographers did not appear to be offering any additional services.

The dictionary definition refers to burlesque in the theatrical sense with dramatic clothing worn by the performer in a comedy role with dancing usually leading to a striptease.

My interpretation of this in the sense of offering a burlesque photography service is that it is simply another form of boudoir photography.  However, rather than wearing modern sexy lingerie as one might buy from Ann Summers your lingerie would be more dressy.  Your lingerie will be lush and colourful – perhaps classical such as that worn in pin-up or vintage glamour.  A few props such as a fan could complete the picture to create some beautifully seductive burlesque photos. I will take a series of images that could involve removing your garments to emulate a striptease – where you can be as tame or bold as you wish.  And or course, I help you create poses intended to tease the recipient of this amazing gift.
