Over the years we have had the great privilege to work with many clients on their bikini and glamour calendar projects. Nothing is quite as much fun, or as much stress as photographing 12 or more beautiful models, all on the same day in several different locations.
Bikini calendar photography is always a huge production that requires perfectly timed logistics. Arriving early on location, getting our equipment vehicles parked and offloaded. Getting each calendar model through makeup, hair styling and wardrobe onto each set in time; moving the lights, reflectors, scrims, stands, tripods and cameras; this just the start.
Then quickly tuning in to the creative director to deliver their vision, as well as quickly adapting to each model’s personality to bring out her individual look and strengths onto the screen; all this happens in rapid succession, model after model, from sunrise to sunset, and when you pull it off and you see the results, its one of the most satisfying genres of work that we ever do.
Here are some behind the scenes images from ourbikini calendar shoots and should give you an idea of how we pull it off.
