What Are We Shooting?

What photography do we like to do? Naturally, paid assignments take priority. That's a given. But we're fans of most photography if not all. However, for publishing and personal projects, fashion, beauty and avant garde take priority. We’re also major fans of fitness in general so most opportunities to shoot fitness under the right circumstances we’re willing to do. The truth is, we're more likely to take on a fashion editorial or even a fitness project over a lingerie one. It's just our taste. 

The trends lately has favored glamour and lingerie. While we love beautiful lingerie and glamour as much as the next person it has become our priority to take on such projects with extreme tastefulness while still being sexy and stimulating. Too often have we witnessed lingerie slide slowly into distaste and pointless sexual exhibitionism. We're convinced that lingerie can still be gorgeous, sexy and sensual without going too far. We've use Victoria's Secret as a benchmark. They've always been tasteful, sexy, glamorous and beautiful without overstepping decency. They have found that perfect balance of what we coin as "acceptable sin." But there is nothing sinful about looking, wanting and being sexy and even showing it off a little. We'll be exploring this topic more in forthcoming issues of Sircus Magazine.

Swimwear is wonderful; the beach, the water, sunshine; who wouldn't love it? Categorically, it's nowhere in the vicinity of lingerie to us. Same amount of skin showing - perhaps less, but it's just not the same. We akin a well poised swimwear photo shoot to a fashion one. We approach it the same way. We still consider accessories and lighting and props. Our fav is swimwear with separates like jackets, heels, and clutches. If we can bring fashion to the beach we're down for it. 

Art nude is also a favorite of ours. Strangely, it is one of the most sublime and less sexualized than one might think. It is far more about light sculpting and mood than about the person; It's an exploration that admires and highlights the human form. It takes a special person to do art nude modeling and a special team to shoot them. We're fortunate to have done a few and we have always been pleased with the results. 

For the more immediate future the plan for publishing will fashion editorials, beauty and avant garde. Naturally, we will always consider different ideas all throughout the year. Our TF or "trade for" assignments are minimal to almost non existent. Currently, nearly every shoot is a paid assignment by a client or model or used almost strictly for print magazine publishing or online publishing. It doesn't mean an immediate "No." It just means we want our minds blown about an idea before we will even consider it. 

We will keep you up to date as events unfold for 2014.
