Shoot with a very international team …. the model: Jelena from Belgrade, Serbia – Make-up and Styling: Anita – a German/American living in the Netherlands – and me, a German living in Belgium… shooting in Paris, France.. the concept and idea for the shoot in Paris was Anita’s – as is the wonderful styling… we planned to do it already last year, but had to cancel short notice due to bad weather…. this year the weather was perfect …….we met early in the morning in my hotel to do the make-up and hair…. (the receptionists in the hotel have been looking at me a bit conspicuously already – seeing how many people I took up with me in my room ….I had a shoot with Gaby the afternoon earlier in the room as well – more on that in the next post….)… after make-up and hair was done we took the Metro around town trying to find some usable locations… it was quite a sight to have Jelena all made-up in a yellow “fairy-tale-type”-dress running through the Metro… the weather was great – and places were crowded with tourists, which made it quite a challenge to shoot and get interesting backgrounds/compositions – without having masses of people in the picture… many thanks to Marie @ Flag Models sending me to Micaela @ Mademoiselle Models in Paris who sent us beautiful Jelena…. its been a wonderful day with a great team!
