You may have heard about Boudoir photography, a style in which women pose for photographs in sexy lingerie or partially naked. The term comes from the French word boudoir, which means a woman's bedroom or private sitting room. Boudoir photographs are meant to be stylish and elegant and are usually for private use, typically shared with or offered as a gift to a love partner, a spouse or a groom-to-be.
Increasingly popular in recent years, Boudoir photography has taken a new turn in the Los Angeles/Beverly Hills area, with a unique trend launched by French photographer Zack Zublena: the Golden Photo Shoot. With this popular shoot, loved by actors and models all over the city of Angels, Zack not only captures the sexiness and sensuality of his subjects but more importantly transform them into pieces of art, giving them the beauty and eternity of a golden divinity.

In fact, the gold makeup is perfect to hide any small imperfections you may have. And with Zack’s 15+ years’ experience shooting all kinds of people, you can count on his expertise to select the positions and angles that will make you look your best.

First, Zack will meet with you to go over your specific requirements and discuss photo setting, makeup, clothing, props, etc. Various options are available depending on your preferences: are you comfortable in water or would you rather be photographed against Zack’s golden wall; would you prefer being wrapped in gold fabric or just body painted; would you rather be naked, partially naked, topless, etc. Do you want a mask, red roses? Based on your choices and level of comfort, Zack will chose with you the best options.
