With Franzi H.

This was the first of four element inspired photoshoots. It struck me that some of the jewelry pieces we make in the workshop have a strong resonance with a particular element, and it would be fun to showcase those pieces in “there element”.


To make this vision a reality I had the wonderful support of:



Model: ⁣Franzi

Hair and Make-up: ⁣Marcel and Katja

Jewelry: Markus Backhaus ⁣⁣and myself

Sarah again 20s style...

Playing with Flash

I was chatting with two other photographers after a foto-walk, and we had the idea to get together and practice using off camera flash. A simple idea turned into three photographers, two models, and six flashes! along with gels, umbrellas, grids, reflectors and flash-benders. Bianca and Tino were kind enough to come model for us.





These were taken as part of a workshop. We went to a quarry where there were piles of sand and stone to use as backdrops. A  wheat field across the street made for a nice change of seen.

40s style Hollywood Glamour Portraits

Inspired by a YouTube video (link) I stumbled across, the idea to do a shoot in this genre began to unfold. I got a couple of books with lots of pictures from the era, and posted on Facebook looking for models. In the end one photo shoot turned into four, and a lot of great portraits. Some of the photos don't really fit to the 40s look, but were great portraits so I included them here.






This was my first studio portrait experience. The shoot was organized by Thomas Richter, a local photographer who I met because of a funny coincidence. I was really only there to assist and learn, but Thomas and Anna both said it was fine for me to take some pictures as well. Thomas was a great coach, and explained everything as he was doing it. Anna was a great sport and very patent. These pictures were possible thanks to both of them.
