Land of the lost

I just love foggy and desolated landskapes. Deserted cars, sky-high trees and farm animals who won't stop staring at you, made interesting photo subjects in this mist. Nature looks so fragile now that winter is approaching.

This light

Here are some outtakes from a shoot I had with Miriam. Luckily we had great weather this time, so we could shoot outside. I didn't make one concistent "story" with the photos, but just tried out different looks and techniques. Therefore the different outfits, location, light etc.

Autumn Bliss

Those glorious autumn colors, I don't want them to disappear.
I'm so lucky to be surrounded by beautiful nature and weird, hidden little places. It's a great way for me to clear my mind and observe nature through the eye of the camera. Especially with the amazing autumn light there's been in the afternoon, I just feel the need to go out, explore and see what I end up with. I also brought with me an old film camera these past days. Shooting with film has always been something I've wanted to try out. And lately I've been very inspired by some great photographers and their magical techniques while using analog cameras. So it will be fun to see the results, when I finally develop this film. For the moment I am so in love with photography and put all my feelings and efforts into it. And even if I'm feeling like the struggling photographer nowadays, I couldn't think of anything else I'd want to do instead. They say hard work pays off, right?


I originally had an outdoor shoot planned last weekend with model Miriam Tullien. I've worked with her earlier and was looking forward to try out some new ideas I had come up with. Had made a moodboard, collected photos for inspiration,drawn sketches and all, but then came the rain and it just kept on pouring down all day. So we had to come up with a plan B - and decided to take some photos in a basement instead. Since I'm into darker tones and very grainy photos lately, this seemed like a nice compensation. Still I was a bit concerned with the lighting, it was very dark there and a lightbulb hanging from the ceiling isn't always the most flattering. Luckily Miriam knows her stuff and is great working with. And going through the photos later that night, I rather liked the hazy effects and indefinite atmosphere we created.
