” Done already? That’s really fast!”

A bit surprised she was when I approached her, but in a positive way. She had no problem with posing for the blog and even gave me time to get her in the right spot. Apparently she thought it would take more time to get the right shot, so when I told her I got the shot I wanted she was like “that’s really fast”. Really a friendly person …so nice meeting these kind of people on the streets. Total strangers but willing to help out another to make each others day even better.

Fashion shoot | feat. Michelle

Another fashion shoot with Michelle of Supongo Estilo. The idea was to create a shoot which feels like one that’s been done in Paris, so I found this suitable location here in The Netherlands. It was quite a challenge this shoot because it was terribly cold …my fingers felt numb and Michelle was freezing.

Visiting Canon HQ & 80D with EFS 18-135mm Nano USM

Ohayo gozaimasu ..uh …Good morning”

I had the pleasure of visiting Canon HQ in The Netherlands for their newest DSLR camera, the EOS 80D with the new EFS 18-135mm Nano USM. This wasn’t announced yet so we had to sign a confidentiality agreement. Of course reviewing this new unannounced gear was great but also visiting Canon HQ …

The first thing that popped my mind when entering the building was the idea of seeing lots of Japanese people …well that wasn’t the case. It seemed like there were a lot of people from India and still a lot of Dutch people. So that Japanese language refreshing course (some books from my shelf) wasn’t needed …

EOS 80D & EFS 18-135mm Review

As I said earlier the camera was announced so we, my colleagues and I, secretly had to shoot the review video (down below) inside this meeting room with doors closed. If that wasn’t enough already we also had one of the Canon employees to accompany us the whole day, just to make sure we didn’t say anything strange for the review of leave this room.

I’m not about to go in-depth about the 80D and the new lens. What I can say is that it has an improved sensor technology which makes it faster and better with auto focus. What I honestly miss with this new camera is the lack of 4K video, I mean the 70D was the first DSLR that could do video with autofocus and great quality.

The new EFS 18-135mm Nano USM had a nice physical upgrade and the ability of mounting an autofocus adapter for an auto zoom functionality.

In short, my visit to Canon HQ was a nice experience, the people were friendly and quite cooperative.

“What’s taking him so long….?”

Had this great shoot with model Iris …a concept of a guitarist who just finished a jam and waiting for her friend to pick her up. Tired and bored she wandered about this parking garage.

“Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!”

On this sunny day in Manhattan, as my wife and I we’re doing some shopping, I came across this nice Japanese couple (friends) who both had such a great style. So I approached them, in both the English and a bit Japanese language, and they we’re quite surprised by the way I approached them. We had a nice chat about Japan and their visit to New York. They really liked posing for the blog and especially this woman took advantage of the moment and used the street (yes, the street) as her catwalk.
