Boudoir Photographer’s Guide to Lingerie | A ‘Must Have’ for Aspiring Boudoir Professionals

By Anthony Thurston on January 22nd 2015

After seeing Brianna and Ewan Phelan speak at Mystic Seminars a last week, I decided that I really wanted to focus my business on boudoir photography this year. Being a solo male shooter, this means I have many obstacles, one of which is knowing what I am talking about in regards to Lingerie.


I have seen quite a bit of lingerie, but if you were to ask me what each style was called or how it makes the female form look sexier, you would have been greeted with a completely blank stare. Enter Jen Rozenbaum’s new Boudoir Photographer’s Guide to Lingerie, a guide that I think is must have for aspiring boudoir photographers of both sexes.

Boudoir Photographer’s Guide to Lingerie – Review

If you want to start shooting Boudoir, you need to know about Lingerie. It is what your clients are going to be wearing for most, if not all, of your shoots. You need to know what types of Lingerie there are, where to direct clients to buy them, and more importantly, how to use them to make your clients look their best.

These are all things that I had absolutely zero clue about before reading Jen’s guide. Like I said above, I have seen lots of lingerie, and many different styles. But, I couldn’t tell you what the different items were (beyond the basic Bra/Panty/Corset styles) or how they could be used to accent sexy features of my clients.


Boudoir Photographer’s Guide to Lingerie is 80 pages of pertinent and easy to read information that all boudoir photographers need to know. But it doesn’t end there; you also get some amazing ‘white label’ (meaning you can modify with your studio logo/info) templates that you can use in your business to make your boudoir shoots a success.

The guide starts with the basics, Bra and Panty sets, and goes all the way through more unique vintage style lingerie. It is more than just showing you examples and talking about what the different styles are. Jen takes the time to share how best to use (or not use) a lingerie garment to make your client look their best. She makes recommendations for certain types of garments and if they look better in standing or laying poses, bustier or flatter chested ladies, and other really helpful information.


I can honestly say that I feel like I learned more in the 1.5 hours I took to read the PDF than I ever cared to know about lingerie, and I mean that in a good way. I feel like I am now informed, and know enough to recommend to my clients the right type of lingerie to help them look their best and make suggestions should they have questions.

The guide is also only $49 too, so it’s really affordable as well. I have seen similar guides in other genres of photography sell for 3 times that, so this is an incredible value for the information that you are getting and the value that it adds to your business.


For that reason, I am giving the Boudoir Photographer’s Guide to Lingerie a full 5 out of 5 stars. I highly recommend that you buy this guide if you have even a passing interest in Boudoir Photography.

I’m not talking just for men either. There is a lot of great information in there that you ladies may not know either. Do yourself a favor, and head on over to Jen’s site and get this guide now. You won’t regret it.

    It is good to mention the unmentionables and the wrong selection of the smalls can have a big impact on the photography. :)

    Come on Anthony . . .wouldn’t you rather be standing outside on some cold rainy night shooting a sporting event with available? What’s the challenge in being in a nice warm studio with perfect lighting and a model who want to look their best?
