SEPTEMBER 2016 the life of a photographer

La Ballerina Siciliana

Just like "Dutch Make up artist" Marjan van Duist from Piu Bella Visagie and I are very proud of these pictures.

This was our contibution to the "Make-up Awards 2016" and the theme for this year was "Make(-up) your move"

Marjan had this mindset of an Italian folklore dancer who danced the Tarantella in a field of flowers in Italy during sunset. But how on earth do you create such a feel in the Studio? Answer, create a backdrop with warm tones and use a very, very soft light. Together we worked on the color scheme and "the feel" of what the pictures would have to look like.

For this occasion i borrowed a "Hensel deep octa 120cm" from Goutier & Peters and since I don't own one (but secretely want one) I wanted to get the softest light as possible.

"It was not just a simple picture"

It took a lot of work, preparation, thinkwork, craftmanship, model had to be found, dress had to be made etc. etc.

All of the make-up (John van G) was created and mixed by hand, and Marjan had an idea of how the dress must look like and also not unimportant which type of model she wanted.

Together with the "Dutch Award winning" Designer Robine Blickman she travelled to Eveline Boertjes to measure her up for the dress and crafted this piece specially for her to fit.

We were on a mission but unfortunately for us, the Jury did not see it (next time better :-)

Fact is that we are super proud of what we have accomplished in over 3 months of preparation. And although we are not selected on the podium, the international magazine "Pump Mag." published it, in the printed and online version.

A work with a story!

The make-up aplied on eveline matches the colors of the dried bouquet in Eveline's hair and also matches the flowers on the dress

The last warm sunset

This is Kelly a friend model where I shot a few times with and since these last few weeks were very warm here, and all of my work was finished, I wanted to shoot freestyle, just for fun, so what do you do? Right, send 20 minutes of shooting on the banks of a lake in the neighborhood.

Did we took advantage of every warm sunbeam this summer? I guess we did!

It was so freakin hot last week and Kelly was already cooling of for like half an hour, and me? YUP, I was jealous on her :-) so when the sun had set I just could not resist it and I had to go in the water as well. Thanks Kel for this unforgettable moment when I slipped :-) #lifeofaphotograher

Preparing for a product shoot at home. I saw a different type of lighting set up so I made this set up at home and this is one of the first shots i fired today. It is always good to prepare yourself so you can rely on your skills next time when you need them.

Saturday evening

And then my 15 year old son (huge fan of Ajax) calls me up and says: Hi dad, do you have plans for tonight? Frank (his stepdad) has got an extra ticket for the football match Ajax - Pec Zwolle, do you want to come with us?

Of course!!!

Product test shoot

after photographing products for a customer i wanted to test some different colors and techniques so i put up my studio at home and made these.

Just to educate myself and to keep up with the latest techniques!

Test-shoot with Amanda

So, iff you don't have bookings for a couple of days, you can sit back and relax, or you can practice techniques which you havent used for some time! We had such a lovely evening and a very nice sunset, and the sun, that was my only light, a present!

Just Amanda (Miss Beauty Flevoland 2016) me and my camera.
