Naoko The Performer

by Callan

At CaKe, there are few genres we love photographing more than portraits, and making portraits of performers are near the top of that list. When an ex-colleague approached me to make some photographs for purposes of entering a contest, I couldn’t say no; not when the ex-colleague in question is Naoko Enomoto, Miss Pole Dance Singapore 2010.

The session itself was the shortest portrait session I have ever done: it took all of 20 minutes. Setting up and tearing down the lights took much longer! Before the shoot, Naoko was apprehensive, saying that she is not a model and isn’t used to being in front of the camera.

But she needn’t have worried. I told her to just bring her stage presence, as a performer, as a champion, because that is what I wanted to capture on camera.

She definitely brought her A-game, wouldn’t you say?
