The Boudoir Photograhper and his Studio
The Bodyscape / Initmate Portrait Photographer
Having gained several years experience as a photographer in micro-stock and commercial photography, Mike decided to enter the world of Boudoir Photography a couple of years ago. "Boudoir Photography is very established and quite popular in the US and the UK, where ladies love to surprise their partners with a set of fantastic photos as a gift on a special occasion", he says. Its an untapped market that is still in it's infancy in Spain, but there is definitely a reason to set up business here. "The women here take great care of themselves and look fantastic - they should have boudoir studios at their disposal right now!"
Working from a home studio has several advantages over the high-street studios that can be found in most Spanish cities. "I'm a family man with a wife and two gorgeous kids", continues Mike,"When a client calls me, it is because they know that they will receive a discreet, professional service in a comfortable environment. They know that there is no ulterior motive - When you invite someone into your home, you are being as open as you possible can with them. My clients realise this and there is an immediate sense of trust".
The Boudoir Photography Studio in Cadiz (Spain)
The studio is located in a quiet area of El Puerto de Santa Maria, easily accessible from most of the surrounding towns such as Jerez de la Frontera, San Fernando, Puerto Real, Rota, etc.. via the major road and rail networks. (see map). It is dedicated exclusively to boudoir photography, and doesn't rely on a constant stream of clients from the street to keep the business going, so clients are never rushed through their sessions.
When you arrive at the studio, you will usually be offered something to drink and we will discuss the plan for the shoot. Once everything is agreed, you will be shown to a large bathroom where you will be able to change and make any adjustments to your hair and make-up.
If you come with a chaperone, they will be able to wait in the lounge adjacent to the studio and watch some world-class spanish television, or choose from a selection of DVD titles, listen to some music, etc....
Once you are ready, you will move over to the studio which will already be prepared for the main theme of the session. The studio is approximately 25m2 and quite cozy. There is a large set of windows that provides great natural lighting, and of course a full set of studio flash equipment to get precise
We will usually get the ball rolling with some basic poses and work towards anything more risque as your confidence increases. You will always be in charge of the session. If there is ever a pose you are uncomfortable with, or a pose that you do not feel you can stretch into, then we will strike it off the list!
If you have any questions you would like to ask before booking a session, then please feel free to contact us:

All of our props are real! It may sound like an odd statement to make, but many studios use green-screen technology these days to generate scenes around their clients.
