Pussy Power Hour - Millie Robson

Posted on January 10 2017

This week we interviewed Pole Dancer, Professional Pole & Fitness Photographer, and Michael Jackson Fanatic... Millie Robson!

1. What was your first experience of pole dance?

My first experience of pole dance was having a go on one in a bar, I was 18, had no idea what to do on it apart from swing about like a monkey ! At 21 became a stripper and then learnt how to do it properly :)



2. You’re one of the best known Pole photographers in the world. Can you tell us about when you started out with Millie Robson photography, and about combining your passions to understand what makes a good picture? 

I graduated from my photography degree in 2007 and then set up my business in 2008, the reason I starting offering pole dance photo shoots is because pole dancing lessons were starting to appear all over the place and I just thought who's ever gonna see what these girls (was mostly just girls back then) can do on the pole apart from people in their lessons! So I thought having a nice photo shoot would be the perfect way for them to show off their new skill!



3. Who has been your most interesting person to photograph?
The most interesting person to photograph is probably Marion Crampe, not only is she a great dancer, she is also a great model, she knows how to pose really well and is also very photogenic.

MARION AND MILLIE

4. Over the past 2 years, what is the most exciting thing that has happened to you / you have done?

The past 2 years have been great! I've been lucky enough to do loads of travelling with work, pole camps are all over the place now and it wouldn't be a pole camp without a photo shoot too! Hawaii, Bali, Mexico have been some of my favourites :)

5. If you could marry one pole celebrity who would it be? And who would be the maid of honour?

Hmmm, I don't really have a pole dancer crush! There needs to be some more hot men on the scene! So I can't really think who I'd marry in the industry... My maid of honour would be Bendy Kate tho if we're sticking with people in the pole world cos she's my homie :)

6. Outside the pole world, what female inspires you and why?

As a female inspo, Madonna is wicked! What a woman... Dominant! Yeh she's got that in the bag :)

7. Can you tell us about your involvement with the ELSC (East London Stripper Collective)?

I've been involved with the East London Strippers Collective from the the first ever meeting, I can't always get involved in all the events as I'm away a lot or got other things going on but I will always support them when I can, I'll prob dance again at one of the parties one day too. The nights are fun and there all a great bunch of girls :)


8. Who inspires you in the pole world who is not pole-famous?

In the non-pole world, I am inspired by people who are determined to make a difference to make the world a better place, people who work relentlessly for charity. People that devote so much time and effort to create awareness of a problem that some people choose to ignore. Vegans inspire me also... I'm a pescatian that doesn't drink milk but becoming vegan is always in the back of my mind, I know I need to do it one day but it's gonna be hard so I keep talking myself out of it :(

9. You can make one law that everyone in the world must abide by… what is it?

My law would be... Be kind to everyone and everything! This way you would hope there would be no wars, no abuse, no animal cruelty! The world would be full of happy, lovely people! :)

10. If you could be a fictional character, who would you be?

I guess I would like to maybe be Chun-Li or some sort of other badass female fighter! Haha! There's me talking about everyone being kind and lovely in the last question but I do love seeing women with amazing fighting skills :)

11. Which Tee from the Creatures Of XIX Teevocative range is your fave?

I like the Pussy Power one :)

12. What are you up to currently? Any plans on the horizon that you can tell us about?

My 2017 plans are to travel more deffo, wanna do as many pole camps as possible! I also want to get into fitness photography more as there's a huge market for it.


13. If you had your own autobiography what would it be called?

My autobiography might be called something like... Millie & A Million Men haha! I done A LOT of dating! But that's a whole other story! ;)


14. The attitude that ‘sex is fabulous’ is apparent in the Pole Dance community, as is the re-claiming of words such as ‘slut’. How do you feel about this and does anything in your opinion need to be addressed or defended?

I think the attitude to 'sex is fabulous' is brilliant! It is and it should definitely be celebrated, I love that women are becoming so confident in themselves. I got to admit tho I'm not too keen on the word 'slut' personally but I have absolutely no problem with girls re-claiming it. I just know for me I def wouldn't be hashtagging 'slut' under any of my sexy pics for instance! More #pussypower I reckon :)
