A new way to get fit or the same blatant association to gentlemen’s clubs? Well here is my very small take on it. A few months ago, I was asked to set up a photo shoot for a local pole fitness group. The girls involved wanted images making that showed their progress and general skill level since starting their pole journey. What I witnessed during my day with them, was not a question of pole “dancing”, there was no eroticism or sexuality often associated with the usual bachelor party or boys night out, what there was, was incredible strength, self-confidence, the fluidity of movement and creativity. Each girl had a thirty-minute time slot for their shoot and I can tell you that after those thirty minutes, every single one of them was physically knackered. The effort put into getting into each move and holding it whilst I made an image was incredible and I take my hat off to them. Here are a few of the images from the day.
