Brighouse based studio photographers put their money where their mouth is, bare all and strip off to show their clients what their boudoir or dudoir experience could be like…
Now the answer to the last question is always, without a doubt, no.
We operate on a basis of trust with our clients and would never showcase private images to any other person. We have a range of portfolio projects we have completed with professional models, which are fine to show, but we could never betray the trust of our patrons.
We set a 30-minute target for everything. The main reason for this is that we built our studio in a beautiful 200-year-old Textile mill and we’d switched off the heating at about 2pm after our last shoot! So time was limited to our tolerance to the cold.
Now most sensible people would hire a stylist along with their shoot, to correct for the usual shine on skin as well as to fix their hair. Alas, we had no one in to help us and we managed with our gym kit hair wax and a hot coffee for good luck.
A quick discussion followed, which usually we both have with our client over a hot cup of coffee in our lounge area, exploring the style of shoot we both had in mind and the images we wanted to get. As you can see here, Craig loves the guitar very much and wanted it to feature in his shoot, while Anthony "had-to-have" his beloved dickie in at least one shot!
We then moved onto set, which Anthony had prepared in the time it took Craig to faff and fettle with his day-old hair.
We managed to squeeze 4 sets into the time we had left, which gave many different looks to play with and a lot more than either of us thought we’d have time for- possibly motivated by the cold!
Like most people, we considered how sensual we wanted our photographs to be and worked to a level of nudity we felt comfortable with; in this case it was fully nude, with an art nude finish. As artists, we’re often asked about this, as some people feel shy asking for what they want. We always say the best thing is to be really direct and honest with us. We don’t shock easily and we won’t be embarrassed, so nor should you.
Editing the images, as we would for any other client, were first selected and graded before being retouched slightly to a level the client wishes.
So if you're looking at a package, or if you're thinking about either a boudoir or dudoir experience of your own, call us on 01484 599 100 to arrange a visit & tour of the studio. We'd be happy to chat over your ideas over a coffee & we're more than happy to show you our own showcase (if you really want to see)!
Also, why not check out what our clients have to say about us both on our testimonial page and our Facebook page.
