Photographer Spotlight: John Carey at our next Decadent Corset Boudoir Event

  





There's only one week left to book!  Our spring Decadent Corset Boudoir evening is next Wednesday, May 8, here at the shop on 321 Linden St. San Francisco.  And yes, we do still have a few spaces left.  I realized the image we used when we announced this one doesn't really do justice to John Carey's beautiful portfolio.  This is our last photo night until August or thereabouts, so if you can make it, you really don't want to miss out!




John Carey has been shooting classic Dark Garden images since before digital was the standard (which was a large factor in our image selection - it's not simply a matter of having him email over a file for us to use).  Thanks to the magic of Google Plus, though, we do have a selection of his STUNNING photography in low-res over which you may drool.  You can view even more at that link than what I've posted here - clearly I had a hard time narrowing it down for you!




Don't be fooled by the fact that many of these images are in black and white.  We will be shooting and printing in full digital color (unless you request otherwise), and your image gallery for re-orders will also be sent to you in full color.


Call the shop at 415-431-7684 to book a session today.  I look forward to seeing you here next week!

Photography sessions may be scheduled beginning at 5:30 pm; allow for up to three hours total time for your transformation.  Hair and makeup artists will be available to assist you in summoning your inner cosmopolite; please bring your own shoes and intimates to complete your ensemble.  Corset purchases and orders are 10% off for event participants.  Call 415-431-7684 to reserve your sitting as early as possible, and saunter into a sizzling summer with Dark Garden.
