Frequently Asked Questions

Who owns the rights to the photographs?

You own all private, non-commercial usage rights to the photographs you purchase, i.e. you can use or publish the photographs freely, as long as you do not use them for commercial purposes (e.g. to promote a business or offer the images for sale).
 
We have absolutely no right to use or publish any photograph taken in any form or manner, privately or commercially, without your prior consent. This will be stated in an Agreement which we both sign before the session. We are open to specific requests – just talk to us.

How much skin do I need to bare?

Only as much as you’re comfortable with.

Nude photography is a beautiful and intimate way to remember your body, and one of life’s most liberating experiences. Sensuality, however, isn’t defined by how much skin you show.  Rather, it’s about mood, expression, and body language.

What’s most important is, with us, you’ll be in a safe and comfortable space where you can express yourself freely, without prejudice, without pretence, without the need for permission.

If you’re not sure, start with a few simple outfits, and go with the flow. You can stop at any stage, and we’ll be right here to guide you along the way.

How long does the session take?

The session usually takes 2 to 3 hours, longer if you need makeup. We don’t count time – everyone is different, and sometimes we enjoy so much, we forget about time! If possible, please keep the day free, relax, and enjoy an experience of a lifetime.

Where will the photo-shoot be done?

The photo-shoot can either be done in our studio, or at a location of your choice.

When can I see the photographs?

Within a week after the shoot. If you are visiting Singapore on a fixed schedule, or if you have a special request (e.g. to surprise a loved one) – let us know! We’ll gladly make special arrangements for you.

Can I send you some ideas / poses I want you to re-create?

Please do! We’d love to listen and discuss how to fit your ideas into the session.
 
Do bear in mind that we are not here to copy poses (unless you have very specific requests). You are special, and we want to express your beauty in the most natural way possible.

Who will be present during the shoot?

Unless you bring a companion, only Kelvin (your photographer) and Elaine (Kelvin’s dedicated partner and your full-time personal assistant) will be present throughout the shoot. The makeup artist leaves after styling is done. Elaine will help you with your outfits, poses, makeup and hair, and anything you need for the shoot.

Can I bring a friend along?

Of course! You are free to bring anyone along. Your companions are welcome to stay with you throughout the session. All we ask is that they do not take photos or videos doing the actual shooting process.

I've never done this before, and I'm nervous. What do you do to make your models look so natural and relaxed?

Even experienced models and performers feel conscious in front of the camera. We believe people feel so comfortable with us because to us, a photo-shoot is not really a photo-shoot, but a chance to understand and accept people for who they are.

Do you provide outfits?

We don’t provide outfits, but we have soft, sensual drapes to wrap your body with. We will discuss what outfits to bring during the pre-shoot discussion.

Who are your Makeup artists?

Our makeup artists are the highly-regarded professionals from The Makeup Room. We’ve been partners for more than a decade. We trust them because they don’t just turn up to plaster a job over your face – they are real people who genuinely care for our clients.

I am L/G/B/T/Q/just weird. Will you accept my commission?

Absolutely. Are we not human? We hold no prejudice, and welcome you with the warmth that only genuine friendship brings.
