HUGE THANKS to Ab “Scorsese” Sesay of the MAC Group for this fantastic behind-the-scenes look of my shoot with Burlesque dancers Angie Pontani, Amber Ray, Gal Friday, Jo Boobs Weldon, Peekaboo Pointe, Darlinda Just Darlinda and Bunny Love the latest additions to my Legends of Burlesque project which dates back to a 1993 shoot of Burlesque Legend Dixie Evans.
Great to see Angie, Darlinda and Jo again. Last June, we shot Angie rockin’ her Tiara as the reining Miss Exotic World and Darlinda as half of the fabulous Schlepp Sisters sporting rollergirl chic. Great to have a bit of one-on-one time with Jo since normally when I see her, she’s always working and I was always shooting, and she did a great job wrangling all our dancers. Gal Friday was glitterrific. Special thanks to the one-and-only Satan’s Angel for sending lovely Amber Ray our way!
What better way to show of how well the new X-Rite Color Checker Passport handles skintones, huh?
