Ditch Shoot & Burn
Shawn Black is an award-winning internationally published boudoir photographer based in Boston, MA. Shawn established Couture Black, his boudoir brand, in 2013.
Every day since, he has pushed himself to develop his signature style and create unique, captivating images for his clients. What began as a service that was mostly for his own wedding photography clients at that time, quickly became a mission.
It became more than just creating pretty pictures for clients and focused on body positivity and female empowerment, helping all women see themselves as beautiful and confident. Hence the tagline #BeBoldBeSexyBeYou! Out of this new philosophy grew the Couture Black Body Confidence Campaign, where Black has donated his time and talent to help change the narrative on what modern society defines as beautiful, one woman at a time.
