Marcy Maloy shoots body painted bathing suit story for San Francisco Chronicle and SFGate.com.
The story that Maloy shot these images for was centered around MAC cosmetics professional body painters. The concept for this assignment — a nine-hour task — was a steamy summer’s day on the beach with a beautiful, bronzed model in a tropical-fern-print bathing suit. The artists started painting at 7a.m. And finished at 4pm. Marcy and her crew got there at 2pm but didn't start to shoot until 5pm. The shoot wrapped at 7pm.
The model was shivering a little when we arrived so we turned the HMI (tungsten) lights on her and clamped a location jacket around her knees. People forgot she was standing around in her birthday suit all day! She was thankful for the heat.
