I met Julie at a christmas drink of her agency… and knew quite quickly that I would love to shoot with her… and so we did. She just started modelling – and is a natural talent… very easy to work with!

As I mentioned in a previous blog post I was not happy with my 6×6 compositions and had a really hard time getting it right… my first thought was to sell the Rolleiflex and concentrate on rectangles… for this shoot I already had my bag packed with 35mm and the Contax 645… later that evening I changed my mind … and packed the Rolleiflex instead… bothered me somehow to surrender so easily 🙂

and it definitely is more challenging for me to compose with 6×6 – but at the same time it forces me to look more carefully and work even slower, which is a good thing… so no Rolleiflex for sale in the near future 🙂

Kodak Tri-X and Portra used here….

Every one of these images is wonderfully realised, but I have to say, number 8 is sublime, absolutely sublime.

[…] 看到這輯人像, 第一個感覺是: 器材是重要! 只有中底機甚至大底機才能營造出這種效果. 前提當然是需要有相當的功力去駕御它. 用一部 C記/N記 數碼單反 + 紅圈/金圈乜圈都好, 那怕與入門中底機相比, 影出來總有點不入流的感覺. 但一套所謂高質機鏡動輒幾萬元, 為乜? 總結: 趁還有菲林的日子, 多用中底機, 拍多一點有質素的相片. 努力! Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:LikeBe the first to like this post. […]

Such a beautiful mood. Love it. How do you get this light? 🙂

there’s a magical romantic & sensual charm to your work and the models you work with that I love & find inspiring, time and time again.

Wunderbare Arbeiten zeigst Du hier; zerbrechlich wie Glas. – Ich hoffe, Du verkaufst Deine Rolleiflex auch in ferner Zukunft nicht…

I love the second one
incredible sweet and oniric mood

This is another amazing series Jan, I so look forward to your new series every time I visit Flickr

Just recently I ran into your blog….keep coming back here every day 🙂
…truly amazed by your work …

mysterious, beautiful and sensual


So many times when I look at your work, I feel that I’m in the room ready to leave for the war. It really feels like something out of Paris 1944..

As you know, this could never be pulled off with out film, Portra specifically…:)

Well done as usual, Jan.

fantastic work.Fantastic model. What we will do if Trix will be not produced any more…….

Nice and elegant job!
It’s curious, I see the world in square format, much easier to compose 🙂


Hello Jan! I must say I love almost all your squares. I think you are doing a great job when working with Rolleiflex. You should do more square photos to practice your compositions.
Keep up!


these pictures are overwhelming… seriusly! I’m glad you didn’t sell your Rolleiflex!!

PLEASE don’t give up your Rollei. Or squares. I think you do phenomenal work with them, but I agree with you that compositions are harder. In my opinion, the harder work pays off. Great photos!

I think you did quite well with square composition.

Hi Jan! I have to say this – you’re an amazing photographer! Really! You’ve insired me to make a little step backward and to rethink my point of view! But I have to return to this session, where almost every shot is perfect except one… sorry but I have to say that there’s something wrong with number 13, to be precise I don’t like her hand, it looks a little bit heavy, for me … 🙂 But really, I’m watching you for almost a half year now and I love your point of view! Amazing!

great work Jan!

These are all beautiful, despite your struggles with the square format. I can’t tell from these photos that you had a hard time working with the square format. I think you nailed the compositions on each one of these. Glad you decided to keep the Rolleiflex!

Lovely set Jan. I am glad to hear you are using Rolleiflex again. Looking forward to see some more of your squares.

PERFECT! I fall in love with your works!

Glad to see you hanging on to the Rollei Jan, love your ‘square’ work!

zart, verträumt, schön!
