I was very excited while planning this shoot. I have been a massive fan of corsets and burlesque dancing for many years, so this was one of those "dream come true" shoots. It was however, also one of those cursed shoots.
There were problems with the corset being held in Customs, which delayed the shoot. Conflicting time schedules with models as well as hair stylists. Literally a last minute location change, and then a small issue with the Federal Police blocking off the car park so we couldn't get to the equipment! There were many issues and delays, but in the end we got some amazing photos.
Having enjoyed working with Maddison so much on a previous shoot, and knowing how good she looked in a corset, she seemed like a natural match for the shoot. She was very positive towards the idea, and once she saw in person what she would be wearing, she didn't want to let go of it. There isn't too much more I can say about Maddison that I have before. Beautiful, sexy and confident.
Massive thanks go out to Anna who was happy to help out with very short notice. I cannot thank her enough. Stef was along from the beginning of this shoot and was as great as always, helping with organising and her immaculate make up skills.
Although the Sir Stamford was a very last minute change of location, the room ended up fitting the look perfectly, and they also had great food for their room service. I would definitely like to try using them again.
Lastly, I would like to thank Julie for helping out in all her usual ways. Running around like a maniac to make sure everything works out.
I would like to thank everyone again for sticking through with this one to the end and helping to make some truly beautiful photos out of a situation that easily could have been abandoned.
