Water Runs Dry

Last month came and went so fast, and I wanted to show and tell what has been going on.
First of all I’ve been working for a Swiss clothing brand with still life of accessories and such for a couple of weeks with a London based production studio.
In addition I’ve been trying to get an agency in Milan, which is proving to be very challenging. As well I’m being told that my style is not commercial enough, which makes sense since commercial jobs are more lucrative for the agencies.
And last, but not least, I’ve been working on a new exhibition that was to open last week, but the management wanted me to do the opening exhibition in the fall instead, so to give them more time for publicity and so on. Since September is many months from now, and I’ll be doing new work for that, I decided to start showing the different works that I’ve been doing to complete it.

WOW Editorial

During Mens Fashion Week in Milan I was working with WOW, a.k.a. White On Web. They display the works of countless designers during this period and they were fronting 7 new talented designers at the fair. In addition to doing the events and location photos I was also asked to do an editorial with styling from these designers. This editorial is now out at the WOW website, but you can also check it out here.

Distance

The second day of shooting with Leica S2 (see the first editorial here), was with a bit more artistic and subdued approach. What do you guys think?

All’s Not Lost

A few weeks ago, representatives from Leica contacted me and asked if I wanted to use their new camera Leica S2 for one of my future projects. I of course said yes because it’s an amazing brand (the S2 alone costs about € 20.000,- but gives amazing quality). So I did 2 editorials over 2 days, the first of which is shown underneath. It’s called “All’s Not Lost.”

The Woman Behind the Window

As a variation of the previous series “Restraint and Seclusion” I worked with illustration artist Achraf Amiri as his dark illustrations caught my eye. Together we made this series. What do you think?

Castings

Usually when I’m planning an editorial I’ll have a casting to make sure that we book the right model(s). You need to see how they are in real life and if they can portray the story that you’re shooting. And so I have a lot of casting photos
For example; here’s a select few of the models that we saw on the casting for VS. Magazine, 
men’s editorial, this spring.

And for that particular story we chose this model, Panos, from 2morrow Model Management.
