The week before Christmas I had the pleasure of being invited to do a shoot with the current Miss Burlesque Australia – Miss Sina King. I only had two days notice so I had to call in some favours to find a location to shoot. Luckily I was able to arrange The Tivoli Theatre for a few hours in the middle of the day so after arranging the lovely Fiona Day to do hair and makeup and getting my good friend Mark Schoeman to agree to come and assist me (which wasn’t very difficult), we were all set for the shoot.
After hair and makeup was completed, we only had about 2 hours left to shoot so we kept the lighting to a minimum to help us move around quickly and to minimise our impact on The Tivoli as they were setting up for the nights event. Working with Sina was an absolute pleasure and the day was topped off by seeing her perform that night at the Hi Fi bar in West End.
On stage is where Sina really shines and I thoroughly enjoyed her burlesque routines at VIXEN – A Burlesque Christmas Party. If you ever get the chance to see her perform, I highly recommend it!!
