In medias res, because it’s important. We are working on a special project, something that is near and dear to our hearts and pleasure to our photographer eyes, and we would like to invite you to join us on this journey. Subtle hint: photo session giveaway for couples. Habitat: such a sweet word. We use this word nearly every time we want to describe an environment or atmosphere that truly makes us feel comfortable and at home. Old movies and photographs from the 80s are among the things that do just that for us. Could be because we both were born in simpler times and somehow the characteristics of the decade are ingrained in our souls and make us feel at ease.
Where am I going with this now? Very simply put, we want to shoot more couples who love and live the colours, atmosphere, and style that remind us of the 70s, 80s and early 90s.
Hipster, vintage, old school, retro, call it as you may. But most of all: deeply in love. We choose not to put a label on it.
Three things: colours, settings (or habitats), and style. Take a look at some of our favourites below (and our Pinterest board here), get inspired and send us a message with your favourite movies that remind you of what these glorious decades looked like in terms of lifestyle, fashion and wholehearted love stories.
We are looking for couples who are genuinely inspired by the look and feel of these times from the past, couples who are also committed to each other, are deeply-deeply in love and happily willing to volunteer for a photo session. Ideally you are located in London, or vicinity, and both of you are within the 24 to 42 age range. In exchange for travel coverage we are also more than happy to come and visit you in Paris, Amsterdam, Vienna, or Budapest.
We definitely would like to include a couple of at-home sessions and a couple of more urban yet still soulful sessions in this portfolio project. Couples in love, couples in their habitats, in their favourite cities, or favourite outdoors.
How to apply:
We are giving away only a limited number of sessions, currently thinking four or five. In order to apply, email us at email@example.com, tell us a little bit about yourselves, and attach a recent photo of the two of you. If you use Instagram, please feel free to send us a link to your profile(s).
