Glamour Photography

March 27, 2015

Glamour photography has come a long ways since the the 20’s. Interesting enough, glamour photography used to be considered erotic photography.  Ha! Thankfully old french pin ups in the 1900’s gave glamour photography a new face. During World War II is where it really started gaining momentum! Movie stars started exposing more and more skin and there it began, sassy, scantily clad dressed women were winning the hearts of service men and men around the world.

This new take on glamour made it more socially acceptable. Although it was not as taboo as before, it was still considered to be highly controversial and even illegal up till the 1950’s.

It was the one and only Marilyn Monroe in 1953 that was featured nude in the first ever playboy magazine. This took nude and glamour photography mainstream.marilyn-monroe-1953

There has been so many glamour standards and styles over the last century. With each period reflecting what is socially acceptable. Glamour photography has never gone away but over the last decade it’s made quite the comeback and is better than ever.

I like to say I shoot modern, fashion, glamour photography for real women. It’s so nice to see that boudoir and glamour photography are more popular than ever and more every day women are feeling empowered to celebrate who they are! I love showing my clients that they are just as beautiful as those women they compare themselves to in fashion magazines. I like to show them with the right hair, make-up, lighting, angeles, photography and retouching, they can be just as glamorous!

This lovely woman was a natural beauty, yes, but her skin was very damaged from a brutal fight with teenage acne. I’m not going to show them, because well, that’s just rude, so you will just have to trust me! She was a model we hired to shoot a jewelry look book and when she showed up we a little surprised, as we could not tell from the images she had sent us that her skin was really quite bad.

I did the best I could do. I lit her with soft beautiful light,  and did some retouching magic. The results are pretty amazing. You would have no idea? Right?

They wanted something modern and glamorous , so I thought it would be prefect to do something similar to Peter Lindbergh campaign for David Yurman. This was years ago, so I would have done a lot of things different now, but everyone was happy and I think they turned out lovely!
