It is always my biggest pleasure to meet Chloé for a shooting. So it is no wounder that this is already my 3rd blog entry of her. This time we met in Berlin. And again it was a gorgeous day.

We started at an abandoned premises and spent almoust the entire day together. Walking, talking, laughing and from time to time we even took the one or another shot together.

The first few images I’m showing here have acually been some of the last we took. Overall, the day was pretty cloudy, but in the evening, right before sunset, we got some perfect sunbeams entering the gigantic window of this old sanatorium. And with the aid of a small smoke candle we got a fantastic, dramatic backlight that Chloé instantly turned into a glorious visual motif. I really love this shots and I hope you too.

All pictures were taken on a Leica SL with a Summilux-SL 1:1.4/50 ASPH., Summilux-M 1:1.4/35 ASPH. or Noctilux-M 1:0.95/50 ASPH. lens.

    Two faces: the sensuality of the woman and the stained-glass window. The profane and the sacred…. Beautiful composition.ReplyCancel

It was a cold winter day when I met Katie at her Daddy’s place. This simply but nicely furnished appartment would be just perfect to capture her enchanting beauty, I tought. I love to keep it simple, especially when shooting girls who doesn’t need any make up, fancy dresses or pompous sceneries to just look gorgeous. And Katie is definetely one of them.

After a cup of coffee and some nice talking with started with nothing more than a white wall, some window light and Katie of course. A few minutes later, just when we had enough soft-light shots, the sun came out and we used the jalousies to play around with some more harsh light.

All images were taken on a Leica SL camera with a M 0.95/50 lens.

In mid-September the weather forecast announced some pretty warm days, most likely the last ones for this year, I tought.  And so I decided to use this opportunity to meet Mathilda and Monique at a small lake for a few shots. Water always fascinates me. The more the better. I love the ocean and I often dream of having a boat and spending my time sailing the Seven Seas. But unfortunately I get easily see sick and so it was better to let the girls get into the water and me staying at the shore 🙂

I really like the results we got. Although, or maybe just because, the shots are so different. We started both shootings in the very late afternoon. The light was changing rapidly which resulted in quite different moods. In addition, some images were taken with a digital camera and some captured on film. But on all, whether inside or outside the water, my two lovely models where giving their very best and I appreciated this a lot 🙂

Images were taken with a Nikon F4 (1.8/105) on Acros 100 or Kodak Portra 160, a Contax 645 (2.0/80) on Kodak Portra 400, a Leica SL (M0.95/50) and a Sony Alpha 7 (Canon 1.2/85).

Last summer I made a trip to Berlin for a few days. I rented a small secluded dacha and used this place for a short shooting with Julia, Maria and Elfie. Unfortunately I didn’t feel very well on that day. That made it difficult for me to express my creativity and guide the girls like I usually do.
Anyway, the girls did their best and this is what we got 🙂

When I was visiting Chloé last weekend in Berlin, she reminded me that I still haven’t uploaded her Mallorca pictures to my blog. And that is truly a shame, because we did some really great work together there.

The whole idea for our short trip started on a cold winter day, when Chloé wrote me that she would love to do another outdoor shooting with me. She suggested April, when she would have some days off. „April?“, I answered skeptically. It was a windy and unpleasant day and I imagined a similar weather here in April. „Where do you want to shoot outdoor in April? On Mallorca?“, I joked. „Good idea“, was the next I read followed by some flight suggestions and several shooting proposals. Obvious, she wasn’t so much into joking than I was.

What I greatly appreciate about Chloé is her perseverance and her never fading enthusiasm. She always tries to get the best out of a setting. Constantly asking to have a look on the screen of my camera in order to improve her pose, correct her outfits or enhance her look. This is the type of portrait shooting I like the most. Not a model and photographer just focussing on their own jobs, but two people being creative together and bringing sensual, expressive and unique pictures into being.
