Must remember to pack insect repellent in my shoot kit. Mozzies were not our friends on the shoot down at Red Beach Bribie Island.
The gorgeous sunset and calm waters were. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. If you want photos like this then check out the pricing for our glamour shoots.
What an epic shoot. I think I am never ever organising such an insane shoot again! Not that it wasn't fun, but I've learnt my lesson - too many people to shoot in one day. We had 13 ladies booked and we ended up taking 12 hours to do the whole thing from leave in the morning to setup the set, and then shoot everybody and then go home. And then the editing! I think I've been editing for ever!
I have also been educated in many of the finer technical aspects of Chinese Pole, aerial acrobatics let me tell you. Don't be fooled, these pictures look effortless but the ladies were working really hard to pull them off and there was a lot of sweat and chalk was being applied liberally to thighs and hands. Having the gym instructor barking instructions at the ladies was also funny as they corrected the poses to show the correct technical aspects.
What Pole Gym is NOT is the sort of pole dancing you might see in a strip club. It is actually nothing to do with that at all. It is actually the acrobatic extension of gymnastics rope, silks and aerial hoop work. This can be frustrating for people to understand.
I have shown two types of photos below. Some are the technical pole positions - I haven't attempted to name them for fear of getting them wrong, the have names like superman, hanging basket, scorpion etc. There are also some acrobatic poses using a chair as a prop. Secondly i have included some of the portrait style photos we produced for most of the ladies.
I was also excited to have one of the ladies produce large scale mounted images for her wall at home.
November 2010 was a very busy month with a lot of photo-shoots and a wedding. One of our favourite shoots was for the launch of a new fashion label called Adonai Clothing. They don't have a website yet, just a Facebook page, but check out the quality of the gear! I think we did a good job of capturing the essence of beach, fun and funky clothing.

Dreamcoat Photography has been asked to shoot as part of a package deal for the ladies at the Pole Fitness Studio in Lawnton, Brisbane in February 2011.
Here is their promotional blurb about the event.
Firstly, we will be promoting our first ever pole photo shoot (Feb 27) so if you have ever thought you would like some amazing professional photos to celebrate the results of your hard work on the pole, now is the perfect opportunity! The package includes a spray tan in advance, professional hair and make-up and the option of pre-ordering a gorgeous boned corset or bikini from Tramp Accessories (Jess will be there at performance night with samples of her stock for you to try on and purchase separately if you like also) so you have something gorgeous to wear in the shoot. We will have instructors on hand to coach you with poses and tricks before your shoot so you know what you want to do and feel comfortable.
Your photos will be professionally re-touched to ensure you look HOT and you will receive them on disk so you can have as many printed as you like in whatever size you like! The total cost of the package is $460 and can be paid off by direct debit over 12 weeks. That's an incredible deal! We had the photographer in the studio on Sunday taking some shots of Ally and Brooke from Grads so you can see some examples of what you might like to do. Places are limited as we have booked the photographer for one day only so please let us know if you are interested so you don't miss out! Start dropping hints to your family coz this would make an AWESOME Christmas prezzie
We are excited about being part of this event for the ladies who have worked so hard to improve their fitness and technical skills and will be proud to produce great photos for them.

Helen Sattler of www.frockfashion.com.au had a huge vintage clothing collection she was selling and invited the Dreamcoat crew to come and shoot it for her. Combining this with the need to produce some great couple shots for gaffer extraordinaire James and his lovely wife Beck we trundled up to Caloundra on a hot sunny afternoon to get the job done. On arrival Helen had cleared the studio space and made lots of room to shoot bot surprise surprise, had two massive studio lights and a large gridded modifier. Trev Pedler came along for the shoot and brought his soft box and so we setup 3 lights onto the rear wall and the two modified lights for a classic Rembrandt lighting style and proceeded to shoot high key vintage fashion.
