Shoot: Imitating Isabel Marant pour H&M, feat Aniek

THE VIEWFINDER H&M imitation shoot

 

If there’s one look book that I like it’s ‘Isabel Marant pour H&M look book’. So I planned on imitating this shoot for a while and I’m glad to finally have done. I picked out 4 looks that I wanted to shoot for this project.

It was a bit of a challenge, because I don’t own a large studio and high end gear which they used for this look book. Not to mention their team of specialists.

Go visit the PORTFOLIO section to see all the looks.

Special thanks to my lovely wife who modeled for this shoot.

Shoot: Contrast feat. Jill

I had the pleasure of shooting with Jill again, this time for a studio shoot …the first one in my home studio. The idea was to do a contrasty shoot against a white wall for the subtle shadow to get some depth in the shots.

Go to the PORTFOLIO section to see the results.

Personal: Hello, new studio!

“..plug in and I’m ready..”

As you’ve might read I moved to this new house  …and now I have my own space for just work and photography, no distraction added with the pleasure of stereo surround music. Down below are some photos to get an idea of my studio. I know it’s not like a large rented studio, but for me it’s just perfect as I usually work more outdoor.

This new place gives me the opportunity to expand my studio gear and explore studio photography even more. No more setting up my strobes, background etc…I only need to plug in and I’m ready to go!

Just love blogging here …I’m writing this blog while enjoying the music that comes from my good old HiFi stereo set and the space around me.

Personal: Preparing my studio

“..where to put my strobes, desk, stereo, gear …”

Sorry guys, it’s been a while since I seriously posted new stuff …..but luckily I’m almost finished moving to this new place. But due to some problems with tv and internet reception I still can’t blog from my new place.

Besides that my studio isn’t finished yet, so the plan is to finish it this weekend and by then I should have internet reception. It’s been a hectic few weeks …but believe me, it’s totally worth all the effort. I’m furnishing my studio as we speak and I really can’t wait to post from this new place and do my studio activities!

“A nice shoot! I love the way how he does his work – Jill”

A basic shoot with my friend Jill, who I approached on the streets about a year ago for a street style photograph. It’s so great that we’ve stayed in touch with each other …now we often meet for shoots. I really like her style, which you can see in one of my previous posts.
