Charlotte {portraiture}

DSC_0106-Edit

There is this aspiring makeup artist, Megan khor that wanted to do a sexy swimwear album for a model chosen by her.
Ironically i was chosen for the task despite having the reputation as “the guy that avoids doing lingerie and overly sexy themes”.
After discussing about the shoot, i decided to do it. Personally i have always felt and still believe that doing lingerie shoot/nudes are just low skilled themes and often the subjects are portrayed in inferior porn like poses. i am pretty sure the world don’t need more of those.

This swimwear idea is different and since its outdoor i get to use my skills. Objective would be an album that shows class, highlight sexiness and elegant poses of the model and effective use of outdoor photography. The strongest reason that i accepted this however, is because I have known Megan for sometime and when she proposed to sponsor the swimwear and makeover, i knew she has her heart in it and i would put in mine to match. After all, when is the last time u met a make up artist that would sponsor the clothes.

Hidden in this whole album however is as truth, a message. I purposely used a 10 year old APSC nikon camera with 10 megapixel (yeah less than most phones nowadays) to create this album. Lets just say its my way of saying “No” to the new Nikon D5 announcement and the lure of constant upgrades.

So jump in to my facebook link below to see the rest and follow my page to see the next 2 albums done on the same genre.
Drop me some comments and feedback.

  1. A stunningly beautiful model captured exceptionally well by you. I can’t see why you have this aversion to lingerie\swimwear\nude work because this shoot is the best l have seen of your work to date. I do agree with your comments about cameras with high megapixel counts. I think six or eight megapixels is more than enough to capture all the detail you need for most portrait applications. So Marcus, l would really like to see what you can do in a lingerie shoot, especially with this model.

    1. thanks for the kind compliments. lingerie is way overdone in this region here and i suspect the same elsewhere. i am finding it hard to imagine its anything more than highlighting boobs and ass with boring indoor flash and same old bed background.
