I am so proud! My husband and “partner in crime” John-Paul Bichard was just voted number five top burlesque photographer of the world!
Every year the internet based burlesque magazine (who I highly recommend!) 21 Century Burlesque has a voting for the Top 50 burlesque personalities world wide. Everybody can vote for at least five or at the most ten burlesque performers, producers, stage kittens, photographers and over all people in the biz, and the results are always very exciting to see!
This year, the number one, was no other than Finnish superstar “Sex on Legs” and Miss Exotic World/Reigning Queen of Burlesque Loulou D´vil!
This year Holly Mae Johnson, who runs the site, decided to expand the list with a bonus list. So now we can see the Top 10 European burlesque performers, Top 20 UK performers, Top Boylesque, Top Australian, Top Photographers and Top Non-Performers.
John-Paul has been photographing burlesque personalities since we became a couple, and especially since we did our first photo project together, The Swedish Burlesque Calendar 2011. But it has increased over the two last years and he has taken so many beautiful pictures of absolute super stars.
Here you can see a few of the pictures he has taken during last year, enjoy!
