expecting to fly

I am changing sequence of events a bit… normally another shoot should be coming now, but I still have some colour film at Richard’s Photo Lab to be developed and scanned (first time for me – I am very curious about the results!). It was very scary sending the film off with the uncertainty if…

It’s been a  long time since the last blog post… end of January I was travelling for a week in Germany, which kept me from developing and scanning film – of course I had to schedule some shoots in Berlin as well, which added to the pile of undeveloped film. Now I am up to…

the difference is why

the second post for the new year…. the weather was crazy… from storm to sun within minutes… I was changing my shutter time a lot … from 1/30s to 1/2000s… but the real surprise for me was the model… I could hardly believe how pretty she was! I found her portfolio on modelmayhem when doing…

A few weeks ago I started asking two of the big hotels in Brussels if I could use one of their top floor rooms as location. I wanted a room with a view over the city and a more modern type of interieur than I usually look for. I was sceptical if they would answer,…

nothing to one

…maybe a slightly different series of pictures this time – maybe not. On one of my recent pictures I got a comment that it had a bit of a Gregory Crewdson feel to it… so I googled him and was blown away by his work – what he does is way out of my possibilities…

yesterday’s tomorrow

Louise is really pretty… the lady who owns the bed and breakfast could not say it enough: “…she is sooo pretty!” …and from the pictures you might get an idea how pretty she is.. but just an idea… there was one fleeting expression I saw a few times, which was simply amazing… and I tried…

disappearing one

This one was shot yesterday in Leuven featuring beautiful Lisa… I decided to take the train to Leuven and met Lisa at the station… from where we walked about 10 minutes to the location. It was a good idea to take the train, finding a parking spot would have been a nightmare! …the room was…

imaginary love

Shot last Saturday in Antwerp in a beautiful guest house with Bo as our model and Joke as make-up artist (<– fantastic line-up!) … the place was very close to the shopping district which made the search for a (low cost) parking spot quite  a nightmare… but the place was more than worth it! I…

charlotte

The shoot with Charlotte was already planned for some time … but due to terrible weather never really scheduled – until last weekend, when it finally  took place. It was already the third shoot we did with hopefully more to follow… she reminds me a bit of my all-time-favorite supermodel Helena Christensen – especially the…

Paris

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…

the machine

Here the session from yesterday with Lara… the unstable weather forced me to find something indoor and so I asked the people from an old coal mine in eastern Belgium if we could take a few pictures inside… I have been shooting there before… a long time ago: when I started photography and had done…

black rain

Lucie and I have been shooting just a few weeks ago… and already then we talked about another shoot… now luckily her agency (thanks Flag Models!) offered to do another shoot right away… so here we are: we met last weekend in my favorite bed and breakfast in Brussels for a lingerie/ fashion session …. to have…

on a cloud

Session number 3 from the “busy” weekend. Most wonderful dresses and make-up by Sano shot in northern Belgium. Many thanks to Marianne from Ragazza Models for sending us Merel on very short notice – and great thanks to Merel for a great performance! (and to her and her mother for driving all the way to…

wunsch ohne ziel

Just finishing a long (…too short) four day weekend here in Brussels. During these four days I was shooting three times – using all the remaining time to develop and scan the film burned earlier…. its been quite exhausting, but at the same time very rewarding.. three great shoots with great people – there will…

Model: Shauna Make-up and hair: Elisa Styling: Sanne Location: Hof ter Saksen – between Antwerp and Gent I left the house Sunday morning at 09:00 and returned just before 19:00. With about 50 minutes driving each direction, this leaves more than 8 hours actually shooting/working …on a weekend ….”just for fun”… quite absurd … or…
