Boudoir Photography with Victoria Bond

Mar 19, 2016 | Continuous Lighting, Fujifilm X, Location | 8 comments

The essence of boudoir photography is shown in these 24 photographs of Victoria Bond that I took during a 1:1 photography training day. My client flew over from Munich for the session and we shot together at the fabulous Clevedon Hall in Somerset. Bristol international airport is just 20 minutes from the Lovegrove studio and Clevedon hall.

If you would like to join me for a 1:1 Boudoir Photography training session do it soon because I’m leaving this genre to challenge myself in a new field. My rates and information for 1:1 and small group training are here. I’ll be further developing my style in landscape and travel photography over the next year or so. Join me on the journey by staying in touch at my photography adventure website.

    Vicky Bond could easily be the face of Gucci, Prada, or any other major designer who is going to be around long enough to be a classic.

      Thanks FotoGuy,

      I agree, Vicky has a classical beautiful look. She’s great fun to shoot with too. We always have a good laugh when we shoot :)

      Cheers,

      Damien.

      Thank you Jay :) Me too. Working with shadows is great. I always shoot into the unlit side of the face. Cheers, Damien.
