In Focus: The Photographers of SuicideGirls feat. Milloux

[Milloux Suicide in The World Is Yours]

Milloux is from Los Angeles and is our newest Staff Photographer. She’s been a Suicide Girl since 2009, and has shot 9 sets as a model and 10 as a photographer.

How did you first get involved with SuicideGirls?

I became involved with SuicideGirls when I was 18. I applied to become one a week after my 18th birthday. After many years lurking the SG Myspace page with friends, I wasted no time!




What’s your background photography-wise?

I studied film and cinematography in school but didn’t really start shooting photography until a few years ago. Since then I’ve taken many classes and spent a lot more time shooting on my own, and shooting myself if I can’t grab a hold of a anyone else. 




[Callioppe in Grey Scale]

What was the first photo you had published?

The first photos I had published was the first set SuicideGirls bought from me: Callioppe’s “Grey Scale.”

How would you describe your style?

I’d say my style is very personal with a dreamy feel. 



What gear do you use?

I have a Canon 60D equipped with either a 50m 1/4 or 85m 1.8 lens, and a reflector equipped with a cute lady to hold it for me! I use a couple of simple soft boxes in some cases.




How important is Photoshop in your final images?

I’d say Photoshop is pretty important. I come from a background in post production, so I believe heavily in using post-tools to accentuate the beauty of a particular work.



What gives you ideas and inspires you to create such amazing sets?

I am inspired by everything! Everywhere I go and everything I see, inspires me to shoot. I am obsessed with capturing moments because my memory isn’t the best. When I’m in a new place, or meet a new person or creature, I instantly think of photographing it/him/her in a way that expresses the way our encounter made me feel.




[Kurosune in Apollo]

What is your favorite image?

I’d say Kurosune’s lovely “Dancing In The Sun” (NSFW) shot from her “Apollo” set.

Tell us why it’s your fave and how you achieved it?

I simply had Kurosune sort of “dance” as she jumped from side to side while stretching her arms and throwing her hair back and forth. As she did that, I laid on the floor and shot up her continuously until the moment was perfect.

Is there anybody or anything you would love to photograph that you haven’t?

I would love to shoot Nemesis. That’s would be an utter dream. I might have actually already had a dream about shooting her.

Got Problems? Sex, Love and Relationship Advice From SuicideGirls’ Team Agony

Posted In All Things SG,Blog,Love,Relationships,Sex,Society

by SG’s Team Agony feat. Jeckyl

Let us answer life’s questions – because great advice is even better when it comes from SuicideGirls.


[Jeckyl in Abnormal Behavior]

Q: Ok, so I have this problem. I am friends with this girl who I now have a lot of feelings for. I would like to take our relationship to the next level and try dating. I have asked her about it and she says that she doesn’t want to mess up our friendship right now. When we are hanging out with my friends and her friends, they all tell me that she really likes me. I don’t know what to do about it.


A: Well, maybe you don’t need to do anything about it. Remember she said she doesn’t want to mess up your friendship “right now” – this doesn’t mean that a relationship is completely out of the question. Just not a likelihood at this point. She knows that you have feelings for her, and you know that she has feelings for you. You’ve obviously discussed this and she’s given you her opinion. With everything out in the open, all there’s really left to do is wait.


The basis of any great relationship is the ability to put the other person’s feelings above your own, so I think it’d be wise to respect her decision. If both parties or one party aren’t ready for the next step, pushing it only leads to resentment in the long run.

Instead, right now focus on nurturing what you already have. If more comes of it, great but, if not, that’s fine too. Take the time to really consider what it is that you want. A good friendship doesn’t necessarily translate into a good relationship. Dating is a completely different ballgame.

Also consider the effect it’ll have on your friendship if this relationship goes south. Make sure it’s worth the risk.
You’d be very wise to consider all the implications of your choices before you make them because there’s really no going back.


Dating your friend is sometimes a lot harder than dating a stranger. You don’t get a clean slate and you only get one shot. Make sure that, when the time comes, you’re ready and you do it right. Love is hard to find and you don’t want to ruin something that had the potential to be amazing.

Best of luck, whatever your final decision may be. I wish you both all the happiness in the world.

Jeckyl

From The Archives: Audrey Niffenegger – The Time Traveler’s Wife

Posted In Blog,Entertainment,Interviews,Movies

by Daniel Robert Epstein

“Whenever you are engaged in a long piece of writing the fun of it is to create a whole consistent world that somebody could sink into. I think if you do it with enough confidence people could just pop into your world and just splash around.”
- Audrey Niffenegger

The Time Traveler’s Wife is one of the more interesting fiction novels to come out in recent years. It’’s about Henry DeTamble, an adventurous librarian who travels involuntarily through time, and Clare Abshire, an artist whose life takes a natural sequential course. Henry and Clare’s passionate love affair endures across a sea of time and captures the two lovers in an impossibly romantic trap.
