We are thrilled to announce the official photographer for NCPP 2016, NorCal’s own FotoKai!
Kai Parviainen — also known as FotoKai because ain’t nobody gonna spell that last name right — is a pole dance, fitness and fashion photographer with a funny accent from Finland. He’s been doing professional photography since 2012 and pole dance photography since 2014. He has been the official photographer for two Volare Variety pole/burlesque shows, and is the main photographer for Studio Botan in San Francisco. Kai’s photography has been published in several magazines, most notably a local fashion magazine, Style Equation. His photography studio with fancy lights, x-pole and a scary doll is located in Berkeley.
Kai will be providing dancers with his selection of 10 edited shots, both in high resolution and Facebook sized. Pre-order price is $45, or $50 after the event. Additional photos can be ordered as well. All ordering info can be found here: http://www.fotokai.net/ncpp2016/
