Danny Steyn has enjoyed a long and successful career as a published professional glamour portfolio photographer. Inspired by the beautiful images in Playboy, Danny realized that a career as a professional glamour photographer was perfect for him - to travel the world and photograph the worlds most beautiful women.
Danny started early as a professional glamour portfolio photographer. His first glamour photographs were published while he was only 18 years old.
While studying at university doing a degree in Mechanical Engineering, Danny pursued his interests as a professional glamour photographer with a number of beautiful young women published in a landmark publication in South Africa called Squire magazine. Squire and its publisher Richard Lyon took on the archaic South African censors head on and were successful in dramatically changing the draconian censorship laws in the country. In 1995 Danny published a book, "Squire's Guide - How to become a Professional Glamour Photographer", which was well received in South Africa and went on to sell 45,000 copies in less than 2 months.
As a professional glamour photographer, Danny has had the privilege of hand picking, and nurturing many new glamour models who now pursue successful glamour modeling careers.
Glamour photography is a general term that represents glamorous and sexy images of the female, and puts all the focus on the beautiful model. Glamour photography highlights the model’s natural features creating soft, alluring, glamorous and sexy images. Glamour photography can encompass clothed, lingerie, bikini, topless and nude images.
In fashion photography, the female is chosen to sell the wardrobe. The model is the prop for the garments that are to be featured. In glamour photography it is exactly the reverse. In glamour photography the wardrobe is chosen to “sell” the subject, the female model, and the wardrobe is chosen to accentuate her assets and limit her weaknesses.
Glamour model photography sessions are for girls and women who wish to capture their personal beauty and create stunning sexy and proactive images for themselves, or for their loved one.
Many of our clients just want to celebrate their sexiness in stunning images, and capture that look for posterity, and some have imagined and fantasized about being a “Playboy” model and want to have that experience. We are here to help make that dream a reality.
You must be 18 years of age and be able to show proof of ID prior to your Photoshoot in order to do a Boudoir Photoshoot..
We fully understand your concerns and we will do everything to set your mind at ease. Present during your session will be your photographer, and a makeup artist / hairstylist if ordered. If you want, you are welcome to bring a fun, outgoing girlfriend to assist during the shoot – somebody whom you have fun with when you party – someone who brings the best out of you, and doesn’t judge you.
We respect your privacy and we handle you photographs with the utmost care and respect. Your privacy is guaranteed. Apart from the photographer and assistants on set (if any) no-one else will see your images without your consent. Your images will not be posted anywhere without your express written consent. We are very honored and appreciative of our many clients who have given us permission to be featured on our website and in our portfolio.
Get a good night sleep before your shoot. Do not wear any tight fitting clothing when you arrive for your shoot. Any elastics, bra straps, belts, etc. will leave crimp marks on your skin. Arrive in a loose fitting gown or robe or anything that will not leave crimp marks in your skin. Avoid eating greasy foods and drink lots of water in the 24 hours prior to the shoot.
We recommend that you use our professional makeup artists as they really understand how to apply makeup specifically to get the best out of you in your photos. If you have requested our makeup artist, please arrive with a freshly washed face. If you are doing your own makeup, apply your makeup as if you are going out to party at night – a touch more pronounced than normal. Do your hair before you leave for the shoot.
We always suggest that you bring too much rather than too little. We will mix and match from your selection to create the perfect stylized shot. We recommend that you bring a variety of items such as bathing suits, casual wear, outdoor clothing, sexy bra and panty sets, sexy sleep wear, thigh high stocking, bikinis, cocktail dresses, mini skirts, low-rise jeans, cute tops, and plenty of fun jewelry and accessories. We do have some clothing attire and accessories in our prop room, that you may use during your shoot, but you should bring the majority of your outfits. Personalize your shoot and get creative! Bring your boyfriend/ husband’s favorite sports shirt, work shirt & tie, or surprise him with that sexy nurse outfit he loves on you! Have all of your outfits clean, ironed, and packed so you’re ready to go. Arrive with your wardrobe in a roll-aboard suitcase and on hangers – we have a clothes rack and wardrobe area for you.
It is your shoot and we will shoot what you want, within certain limits. We will photograph lingerie, implied nude, semi- nude, and nude. Our style and photography is very beautiful and tasteful. We will shoot up to “playboy” style photography. We abhor exploitational imagery of any form, and we do not shoot explicit or adult content. We worship and adore the female form and we seek to flatter and complement the female form at every opportunity, providing you, our client, with images that you will treasure for life and show with pride.
Absolutely everyone doing their first glamour photography session feels a little nervous, and yet excited prior to their photoshoot. It will take about 15 to 20 minutes for you to warm up in the beginning and before you know it you will be having a blast! By the end of the session we always hear from our clients “It was so easy and I had so much fun doing it! I wished I had done this years ago!”
First of all, none of the people on our website look like that in real life. The images you see are a combination of the client’s looks and our artistic and creative skills.
You don’t need the “perfect body” to look absolutely amazing in your photographs. The photographer’s job is to bring out your best features, whether it’s your eyes, cute smile, or your beautiful long legs, great body, and pose you just the right way. We are skilled at artfully draping the satin sheets, and carefully choosing the right wardrobe to complement your look.
Additionally we carefully adjust our lights and reflectors to highlight your assets and diminish your weaknesses. And once these stunningly created images are captured, in our editing studio we take great care to enhance the overall image using tasteful and creative retouching and air brushing of your images, and ultimately you are assured of looking way more stunning in your images than you had ever imagined.
Our photographers will work with you advising you on how to move and posing you to accentuate your best features. It always helps to tear out images that you like or would like to recreate. We suggest practicing in the mirror and browsing through some of your favorite magazines to help you prepare. Searching the internet and bringing in magazine tear sheets will help us get a feel for the style and type of photography that you like best. We will do our best to recreate the images that you like.
It will take us about 7 to 10 business days to professionally retouch your images and have them ready for you on CD.
We have 3 standard Glamour Photography packages that you may choose from, and we can customize your session according to your wishes. Our packages are based on time, props, number of images you taken, and the number of retouched images you will receive.
Our sessions range in time from 1-½ hours to 4 hours and you will receive anywhere from 200 to 600 professional images. You will also be assigned full Reprint Rights to your images, which allows you to make prints where and whenever you choose. You also have the option of hiring one of our professional makeup artists and/or hair stylists.
