I'm keen to build up my portfolio on lingerie and bordouir photography. I don't need any paid assignment and will bear the costs for a studio. Importantly, the photographer needs to guide me as I am inexperienced. Bring out the wild cat in me!

I hope you realize that "Boudoir Photography"or any kind of provocative posing for photographs is against the law in Singapore.

I was invited to do a lecture on Glamour Photography for the organization of Singapore photographers (invited by the government). I was told that I could show my seminar images, as long as there were no nudes, no lingerie, no provocatively posed models shown, or I would be in violation of the nation's laws (think canning and jail).

My lecture usually contains around 250 images . . . By the time I removed the offending images, I was down to about 40 photos showing set construction and male assistants standing in for lighting tests. I only brought those into the country.

In attendance at the seminar was the Prime Minister, National Security Minister, Army Generals and Chief of Police. I'm sure they were ready to pounce on me if I so much as showed a fully dressed model with her knees slightly apart.

However, everything went smoothly. My assistant and I were treated to a week of wonderful meals, first class accommodations, tours of the interesting places and airfare.

I'm curious, did you have some sort of government liaison or something of the sort who could give you a thumbs up/down any of images you ended up showing?

AshDee, I’m hopping on the next bus to Singapore!
I’ll bring out the wild tiger in you so much you’ll be chasing down game you did not even know lived in your forest!!! LoL
Hey I just found out the Singapore bus doesn’t even stop here!!!
Yes, as was said, you can do a casting call but better yet, do a “search” for photographers in your area and contact only those that shoot the caliber and style of the shots you would like taken. Be very picky and try to work only with the best. That should get you high quality results.
Good luck and welcome to MM!! 😋📷🙏🏼

Yes . .  it was one of the office staff of the Prime Minister.
They were very clear that there was to be no nudity of any kind (not even 'implied').
No images of women or men in any sort of 'provocative poses'. No open legs, no bikini's, no buttocks even with thongs or grandma panties, no cleavage or bare backed dresses. Basically NO ANYTHING that I have in my lecture presentation.

I only used images of just the sets, sometimes with a male assistant standing in for lighting tests, and lots of talking about how I set up the technical end of the shoot and very little about the models or posing techniques.

To answer your question more specifically, I was not allowed to send any images into the country for approval or disapproval, as they were note allowed to receive any questionable materials from outside sources.

The OP wasn't gonna unleash the wild cat...., she was looking for a photographer to do that for her!
If the OP would be kind enough to send me a R/T fare to Singapore, I promise to pullout all the STOPS and make that wild cat ROAR!!!
