Mert + Marcus | The Photographers

March 6, 2012 § Leave a comment

Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot are in demand, well sought after, preferred, praised, well received. In other words, they’re quite popular. They are quintessential to modern fashion photography. Their work is ubiquitous. They’ve shot campaigns for just about every high-end brand you can think of; Gucci, Versace, Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, etc. Their style is very classic yet easily recognizable.
Elongated limbs, expressive gestures, high contrast lighting, all reminiscent of Mannerism. You’ll notice the clothing perfectly coiffed, tailored. The Lighting is almost always hard (strongly defined shadows) when shot on location, soft lighting for studio. They favor rich color, often using soft hues to set the tone/mood of the image. Their B&W work has contrast but seems to lose a bit of the life present in their color work.
