VIRTUAL BOUDOIR SHOOTS
Have you always wanted to shoot with me, but geography is getting in your way?
Welcome to Virtual Boudoir Shoots, an online experience like no other that helps us connect, celebrate and create beautiful art together from anywhere in the world.
And yes, you really did read that correctly, ANYWHERE.
get creative anywhere
That’s right, no trains, planes or passports required! As long as you have a strong data connection (Wi-fi or 4G/5G) we can book you in for your virtual boudoir shoot. Before we start shooting, I’ll ask you to take me on a little virtual tour of your space and together we’ll pick a place with gorgeous natural light. It doesn’t need to be the fanciest setup, we’ll work with what you have. After all, just you and a bedsheet would be enough…
reconnect with yourself
You know that feeling you get when you’re all dressed up with your hair and make up done ready for a night out? Well, add in 45 minutes of me telling you how amazing you are – plus of course the 10 stunning images you’ll receive after the shoot – and your self-confidence will skyrocket. Clothes on or off, let’s create some virtual shoot images that make you feel like royalty.
PHOTOGRAPHY THAT MAKES YOU
try something new
At a fraction of the cost of my regular boudoir shoot offerings, virtual photoshoot are a great way to dip a toe into the world of boudoir photography, or maybe try out a new burlesque costume or concept you’ve had for a while, teasing the images to your audience. Of course, it might also be an opportunity for those of you on the other side of the world to work with me for the very first time!
fill your social feeds with joy
The world is waiting to see you in all your glory! The images you’ll receive from your virtual boudoir shoot are perfect for social media, both as new content for your social feeds and perhaps even a cheeky new profile picture. They also make great teaser content to send to your socially-distanced lover, who you might not have seen for a while..
What my virtual boudoir shoot clients are saying…
I have admired your work for years & dreamed of working with you. The reality was even better than I had dreamed because of who you are & your personality… I instantly felt comfortable & connected with you.
You’re a wonder, Tigz. Thank you for shooting with me.

SO, HOW DO VIRTUAL BOUDOIR SHOOTS WORK THEN?
All you will need is a decent internet connection, some room in your home, a connected device with a reasonably decent camera on it and a stand (a makeshift option like a stool of a mound of cushions will do!) to hold your device in place during the shoot. You can use a smartphone and we will connect using a platform like Shutter App or CLOS. If you happen to have a DSLR at home, we can also try and hook this up for virtual photography too! Message me before booking to see if I can accommodate your specific camera model.
When you book your virtual boudoir shoot, I will ask you about the equipment you plan to use, and from there I will send you the details you need to connect with me when it’s time for your session. Once we’re connected, you will be able to see me, and I will see you.
First, I will ask you to take me on a little guided tour of your space so I can see your environment, where the light is and how it records on your device. Then, I will instruct you on where to place your device and set up my composition.
From then on, it will be much like a normal shoot, with me directing you into poses using the sultry tones of my voice as well as visual guidance where required. Working through a plethora of kickass poses to flaunt your greatest assets, I will be ‘shooting’ from my computer. The only thing you won’t be able to hear is the sound of the shutter clicking, so instead, I’ll be filling that silence with gorgeous compliments about how fabulous you are!
At the end of your session, I will choose my 10 favourite virtual shoot images from your session, lightly edit them to match my signature style and send you a link to an online gallery to share to your heart’s content!
I LIVE IN A DIFFERENT TIME ZONE, WILL YOU SHOOT ME?
Yes! Evening shoots are available for those of you that live in different time zones. Please mention your location at time of booking and we’ll make sure to pick a time that works with the natural light in and around your home.
TELL ME ABOUT IMAGE QUALITY - WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
Got a compatible DSLR or can borrow one? Great news: I can actually shoot full RAW files for you wherever you are in the world, giving you the almost-equivalent experience of me being live in the room with you! Want to know if your camera is compatible? Drop me an email with the camera make and model number and I can let you know. If you want to hire a camera, I’ve put together a package with The Flash Centre below with everything you need!
Working from a smartphone? I’ve done plenty of research to make sure I’m providing you with the best quality images available from your chosen device. Whilst I may not be able to provide you with the billboard size images you might expect from an in-person shoot – which is reflected in the price point I’ve set for this package – both Shutter and CLOS apps will allow me to control your smartphone’s native camera, which can usually provide at least A5 size images at print resolution (300DPI) and much larger web resolution (72DPI) offerings. The resulting web-resolution images are perfect for filling your social feeds, where images are viewed at a small size; as well as for sending something saucy to a long-distance lover you are missing right now…
I WANT THE BEST IMAGES POSSIBLE - CAN I HIRE A DSLR?
You absolutely can! If you’re based in the UK, I’ve teamed up with the lovely staff at The Flash Centre Birmingham to create a Virtual Boudoir Shoot camera hire package, which includes everything you need for your shoot – including delivery and collection to your door – for £100 + VAT*. If you are interested in hiring a camera for your shoot, please email me to ask for more info.
*You will also need to pay a deposit with a credit or debit card, which is refunded upon safe return of all equipment
WHERE SHOULD I SHOOT?
Take me on a quick tour of your home, because I bet your space is TOTALLY photo-worthy. The majority of the images I’ve shot were created in boudoirs with plain walls, white bedsheets and a large window. You don’t need much, just some simple furniture and a window. Anything else is a bonus! Send me a short video of your space and I’d be happy to help!
Alternatively, why not treat yourself to a hotel or AirBNB and extend your shoot experience into a full 24 hour celebration of you! (Just make sure to check the Wi-fi or 4G/5G strength beforehand!)
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR A VIRTUAL BOUDOIR SHOOT?
Clothes on or clothes off, everyone has a different reason for wanting to be photographed. No two people are the same, and you can dare to bare as much or as little as you like, safe in the knowledge that you also have complete control over the privacy of your images as well. Here’s a link to a blog post on what to wear for your boudoir shoot and another one on wearing a dress for a boudoir shoot. Need more virtual shoot ideas?

HOW DOES THIS COMPARE TO A REGULAR BOUDOIR SHOOT WITH YOU?
For me, a boudoir shoot is all about making you feel like royalty, and its the personal touches and that human connection I add to my in-person boudoir shoot experiences that make them so incredible. That and a pamper session with professional hair & makeup, 60-90 minutes of shooting and top industry retouching techniques on high quality, print-ready images of you to celebrate your glorious existence!
Whilst a virtual boudoir shoot will never replace the FULL Tigz Rice experience I can offer in person, I do feel that what the world needs right now is more opportunities to connect, celebrate, create and be expressive, so for as long as I feel the world will benefit from this package, it will be on offer.
