I don’t usually get on my soap box but here we go...I’m reposting my comment I made on a post to #megynkellytoday because for some reason she wants to trash talk the pole community and view us as anything but athletes. And I for one think as many people as possible should try to set her straight. Pole is a sport and deserves to be in the olympics. I’m not saying I’ll ever be one of the chicks in the olympics if pole becomes a part of it but I know some athletes that could and they deserve the same respect as all the other athletes. Not all pole dancers are strippers, in fact most of the pole dancers I know aren’t. (Not that there’s anything wrong with strippers who pole) We need to erase this preconceived perception of what pole is and finally recognize that it IS a sport. @megyntoday you should open your mind a little and maybe try a pole class yourself!
Some serious words of a #polephotographer .
It’s sad, but I have to write this.😔 This is for all #strong#poledancing women out there.
You put so much effort and passion into this sport. Even more - you make it become art and look like magic. So if some stupid (male) creatures try to humiliate you it is not your problem it‘s their problem. Never let anyone else humiliate you.
As a #photographer and loving husband of a poledancing wife I just wanna give you one important advice. If a male photographer wants to shoot you half naked or even naked and you don’t know him. Please take a familiar person with you. You never know his intentions if you don’t know him. If he refuses having an other person at the shooting, you will know that he is not serious. It is very sad but I heard so many bad stories about this in the past. So please take care of yourself.
Also you should check if he has some reference images to show you his work. So you know if he is serious or not.
I hope this is helpful for you and wish you all the best. 💛
