Last year I was asked to shoot The VIBF… knowing virtually nothing about burlesque I went in without really knowing what t expect… It turned out to be the craziest, sauciest, sexiest, most hilarious, most out of this world awesome show I’ve ever seen, and I’m so grateful to have a chance to be a part of it.
This year I was grateful to be invited back for 3 more nights of whiskey and some of North America’s top burlesque talent. I can’t even begin to fathom the hours of blood, sweat and passion that go in to putting on a show of such world class caliber.
Each performance is entirely unique, creating audience reactions ranging from intimate and soulful to chest splitting hilarity (who knew a landscape painting session with Bob Ross could be so sexually charged?). Music ranges from jazz to classic rock to dubstep. The only constant between all the performances is that they are ridiculously entertaining, and wardrobes tend to “malfunction” in a spectacular fashion. If you haven’t seen the show, words can’t even come close to doing it justice… you really need to get out and experience it for yourself. Hopefully some of these photos help give you a peek in to how crazy a burlesque night can get 😉
