Performance wise, I was also very┬áintrigued by the Fuel Girls so I hung about for a bit to shoot them in between interviews. I have worked with a couple of ex-Fuel Girls in other shoots, but never seen them perform their routine in full. From pole dancing, ariel hoop, ballet, and urban dance to fire breathing and sword routines – it was all incredibly inspiring and sometimes breathtaking in places.

I shot this bit of footage on my iPhone at the start of the show. If you haven’t seen Rammstein live, it gives you just a tiny taster of the work they put into the show. You can check out their Official music videos to see what they get up to on stage. It’s a feast for the eyes! That walkway lowered down and the […]
