2021 LOOKSLIKEFILM BARE Awards: Meet The Judges
LOOKSLIKEFILM BARE Awards 2021 – Meet The Judges
The LOOKSLIKEFILM Bare group kicked off in a major way last winter and with it, we wanted to celebrate with the biggest boudoir contest that LLF has ever done with the most prizes. There were some hiccups along the way but our community virtually showed up in big numbers to participate in such an event. Now that the entries are in and us judges have our work cut out for us, it’s time to introduce this year’s judges to you all. Make sure to give them all a follow!
Ore Adesina is an award-winning intimate lifestyle and boudoir photographer based out of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She is known for her distinctive style of photographing couples boudoir portraits. She also specializes in intimate lifestyle portraits for men and fine art photography. She strives to photograph individuals of all shapes and sizes, with the goal of capturing the “perfectly imperfect” and helping clients recognize and see the best versions of themselves.
Alex is a photographer from London UK. He’s been creating photos for around 8 years now and is most known for intimate and lifestyle images. In his work he tries to expand the boundaries of what boudoir can be, introducing elements of mystery, narrative and cinematic styling. He balances the direction of my subject between documentation of who they are individually with creating a story between their presence in the shot and the scene around them. He pays particular attention to the background/location, the creation of the scene involved in the shot, and building an atmosphere using texture, layering, and playing music during shooting – essentially similar to how a movie director/cinematographer would work, but producing still images instead of moving ones. As an artist, he tries to explore themes such as the balance of power/empowerment, voyeurism, mental and physical strength, drama, and intrigue.
D’Artagnan is an international award-winning fine art portrait photographer and art director based out of Jackson, MS. Born and raised in the Mississippi Delta, he is known for his intimate and soulful style. D’Artagnan captures the beauty, strength, grace, and dignity in his subjects who are usually everyday people.
Laura is an international award-winning boudoir photographer in Gainesville Florida. She started her career as a professional wedding photographer in 2003. After suffering a big loss of a loved one and the grief experienced with such a loss, she shot her first boudoir shoot in 2011 and that was when she fell in love with the genre. Over the years she stopped shooting everything except intimate portraiture and honed in what she loves the most- empowering people through art. With every boudoir session she had, she felt herself healing and noticed that she was helping to heal her clients too. Within her boudoir work, she focuses on emotive expressions that convey sincere feelings. She works with connecting with her client to break down walls through coaching, allowing them to show her who they really are, while also showing her clients how truly powerful they are, and how beautiful they are through someone else’s eyes.
