On Stage: William De Ridder for Paul Mitchel

Did another show for William De Ridder. I love being on stage, especially for William. Although you have to wait long before the actual show - which is completely normal - the atmosphere backstage is always good, styling is great and hair is styled into perfection. What more do you want.
Here are some backstage shots, waiting to get dressed and waiting to get on stage.

Travel: One morning in Paris

It's strange how some days go. One minute you're getting up at 6.30 in the morning, a little later you are on the train to Paris to enjoy a walk in the sun through the Parisian streets only a few hours later. As grumpy and tired I was in the morning, that's how lighthearted I was when walking the streets. I had enough time so decided to do everything on foot in stead of taking the metro.

Around noon I arrived at the hotel where I was going to shoot with Julien SunyƩ. As usual it was great working with Julien. He did a few testshots to see how he wanted to approach the location and to check light and angles, and we were ready to start. We shot a few setups on the balcony of the hotel, which had a great view of the Eiffel Tower. It was a beautiful day, which was a bit of a challenge with the sun playing hide and seek behind the clouds. We ended up with great shots!
A little later I was back in the Parisian streets with a little time left for sightseeing, to hop back on the train home a few hours later. What a great day!

Workshop: Edinburgh workshop

Last weekend I travelled to Scotland to do a few workshops with Trevor and Faye Yerbury. We did 2 fashion days and 1 art nude day. The fashion workshop involved a lot of walking to about 5 to 6 different locations in the center of Edinburgh. For the nude workshop we had a beautiful victorian garden to our disposal. Here are a few results so far!

On tour: Mini tour in Germany

Straight from Crete to Germany for a wonderful weekend of creating.

First up was my shoot with La Calva, all the way in the East of Germany. Our location was a beautiful, old farm with amazing attic. The owner tried her best to keep history alive by setting up the place with antiquities only. The entire place had a rural 1920's vibe with fresh and dried flowers all over. Home goals! <3 

Next up was my shoot with Jan Harms, a little closer to home. We started shooting in a hotel room but had also planned to go out and shoot in the city, but the weather wasn't on our side, so we only got a few shots outside. Nevertheless, I am really happy with the images we got!
