I met Sofia Navas at the Pole Dancing SM earlier this year, and Lisa Scharp is a new instructor at Vida Pole. We teamed up for a pole dancing photoshoot in the archipelago. In Greek mythology Tethys is the mother of the Naiads and Oceanids, which are fresh water and ocean nymphs, in case you wonder how we came up with the blog post name.
Our original idea was just to photograph somewhere along the coast, but Lisa told us they had a boat at their summer house which was located in the area, so our plan evolved. We ended up loading the pole into the motor boat and headed out to a spot that Lisa had scouted for us a few days prior.
For this shoot I had brought my 35 mm lens with me, since I was not sure how much space there would be, and also I wanted to include the scenery around the pole. Turns out the little island we found was reasonably big, so I could have got away with using my standard 50 mm.
The sun set, and we started dismantling the pole and packing everything up. A long journey back home in front of us, but happy with the results of today’s fun photoshoot. A big thank you to Sofia and Lisa, and also to Vida Pole for lending us their portable X-pole.
