Lana, in the studio

The first shoot of 2023 is with the beautiful Lana (@layanadevis) in the studio, using studio light. the style varies from innocent girl to glamourous beauty. As (almost) always edits are in colour and BnW.

Versatility

The last shoot in 2022 was with the wonderful Chiara Elisabetta. Again this was a remote shoot. The series, below shows that with a good preparation, amazing results are possible. This was our third remote shoot, so we are used to work together in this way. Cheryl is not only a great, very experienced model, but also a stylist, photographer and very creative. Next to this it is great fun to work together, share ideas and laughter. this time we shot in a quite bare bedroom, totally different from the exotic, colourful caravan of our first shoots. We were very productive again. We came to several total different sets, I edited in different style.

Kathy

One of the last shoots of 202 is with Kathy (Katharina, @with_the_curls_she_goes). She is a Dutch model, so since long I could speak Dutch again. This makes communication easy. We discussed my plans on forehand, shared my moodboard and concept,exchanged ideas, wishes about style etc. i planned the shoot in a daylight studio, although in this time of year there is not that much light. Kathy is a lovely model, easy going and has amazing curly hair.

monumental AMSTERDAM

Shoot in a wonderful house along one of the famous Amsterdam Canals. This house from the golden century in the Netherlands with beautiful rooms and hallways, is a beautiful backdrop for the models in their sensational dresses. this event was organised by @artphotoproject

models are: @verenaomi, @annapsyartist and @lanies_frames. mua: @mua_ulianamatkovska. Dresses: @holland_dress_rental. 

The One and Only

Studio shoot with Olga Danylova ( @the_ Only_One). Olga is a wonderful model, professional, hard working full of Energy. It was great fun to work with her. The shoot was in a daylight studio of a friend of her in the centre of the Hague. Olena Tvorcha ia also a great make up artist. A very productive shoot, many images in color and BnW.

La Boheme

Remote shoot with Cheryl (Chiara Elisabetta, and more social medea names). Cheryl and I know eachother for several years now. Last few years ( since Covid) we organised remote shoots together. Starting with an idea , we go on  chatting about athmosphere and style, sending example images, coming towards a concept. this often takes a few month. 

for the actual shoot, Cheryl collects fabrics, items, props following the concept: Styling the shoot. In this case : colourful fabrics, oriental setting, headscarves, etc. Cheryl converted a room into a harem, boudoir, changed more or less into a wealthy courtesane. So Cheryl is the model, the stylist, the light technician and more. I only press the button, give some direction and edit the images. se the results below.

Underwater nymphs

Remote underwater shoot, organised by PGD Photography. Great organised,3 brave Models, conducting their underwater poses, wonderful colours. New experience for me,

Rebecca

Rebecca and I played with the light, making shadows in the beautiful daylight studio ( Fraai.Studio) for  a couple o hours. Rebecca made beautiful bodyshapes.

The second part of our shoot had a different more personal, emotional approach.

(UN)bound

Duo shoot with Emma and Noa, at Emma's place in daylight. After discussion with Noa about shibari, the art of knotting we decided to do a shoot with ropes as subject/ prop. Not a real shibari style but involve these ropes in a duo shoot.  The shoot turned out o be very productive with a lot of serious fun.
