I first met Miss Deville when I started taking a beginners Burlesque Burn course last summer. Yep - it burns!! She does an amazing bootcamp type workout followed by teaching a dance routine. The routines are perfected over a 6 or 8 week period and then they are ready for the Burlesque Burn End of Season Show! Pasties and all! Every show supports a local charity too, so what Daisy does for the city is amazing! Kudos to her!!
Which brings me to her awesome photoshoot! I had a particular set-up in mind - I wanted the traditional 1920’s “feel” to the photos so bought some old world items and started setting up… As any photographer knows, you have to already have the perfect image in mind before shooting, and what Daisy and I came out with was even better!!! I love these shots and finally have some real Burlesque photos to add to my portfolio. I’ve wanted to do this for a while now, so a big THANK-YOU to Daisy for doing such an amazing job and for being so patient with me while I was moving lighting and props around.
And!! You can see her perform live tonight at the after party of the Burlesque Assassins Movie Premier here in Calgary - Plaza Theatre in Kensington. Enjoy!
