anna

Anna is from Russia and visited Belgium earlier this year when it was still very cold and dark. It was great working with her – very much fun and very relaxed! …but I should not wait too long between shooting and posting – as I get much more critical with my pictures over time ……

the golden age

Part I of my “Russian Week”…. I was shooting beginning of February with two Russian Models – and this is the first set – both models were amazing! This was downtown Brussels in a really great Bed and Breakfast… some rooms looked a bit like from Alice in Wonderland. I used the Plaubel Makina 67,…

broken drum

…  a happy new year to all of you!! its been busy since the new year started and I already had three shoots since then – working about 14-15 hours each day. Leaving for the shoot around 09:00, coming back around 15:00 and then developing and scanning until 24:00… three days in a row… I…

miles high

….here the series of pictures I took with Coraline last week in Brussels. We had a little discussion recently on facebook about voyeurism and photography, which made me want to do a shoot with a more voyeuristic approach …as I understand it… with a focus on body parts, more “sexually charged”, more provocative…. I hope…

lost and found

….the last days of Summer 2011 with beautiful Nirmala … shot in the wild and untouched nature of westerly Netherlands…well, almost… its a beautiful area, but this time there were people with cameras and binoculars everywhere… and even if you could not see them, you heard voices talking from all directions… and some of these…

We had this shoot scheduled for early July, but had to cancel due to miserable weather … since then we were desperately looking for a date with a “usable”  weather forecast (i.e. no rain and temperatures above 15C)… we had to wait quite a bit! For Monday and Tuesday they finally forecasted good weather and…

nothing to one

Left on Tuesday after work to pick up Zoi at Tilburg Statiion ….we continued to the Druinense Duinen for our shoot… last time we were shooting indoors so this time we opted for outdoor in nature…. as I have been shooting a lot medium format (Contax 645) recently, I wanted this one to have a…

the great divide

Shot last Sunday in the Netherlands – near Tilburg… in an area called the Loonse en Drunense Duinen. When we drove to the location it was still windy, cold, cloudy and grey… as soon as we arrived and started shooting, the sun came out and provided us a beautiful shooting afternoon…. Shot on Fuji Acros,…

BEHOLD I

First nude shoot in almost three months. Jennifer travelled up to Brussels last Saturday for a 3 hour session in one of my favorite and often used locations  – a bed and breakfast in Ixelles/Brussels. It was as well the first time I used my Rolleiflex again after having it cleaned and adjusted while being…
