Lookbook Shooting with Ricarda Haase

Last saturday I had a big fashion Shoot for young & upcoming fashion Designer Ricarda Haase.
For her young age she created wonderful dresses, very female, very romantic.
Dòri and Maddy created the Hair and Make-ups for the day.Models were Karolina & Katharina from Favorite Models Agency.
Together we created so amazing images and I really would love to show them to you right now!
But all i can give you is a little sneek peek from my retouching process:

And of course there’s a BTS video.
Enjoy!

Featured in local Art Magazine „BOGART“

This month started great. Not only with a big photoshooting (i will post about this later) but also with my work featured in a local art magazine called BOGART.
It features local artists, most of them based in Gießen (where I went to school for years). From Photographers to painters and comic artists: This Magazine has the who-is-who of our local artists.
And so i’m very proud and honoured that I the cover of this issue is made by me.
It’s my second cover on a magazine. And I’m still totaly over the moon.

The cover image was taken back in 2012 for my exhibition.
Model is the beautyful Elena, Hair and Make-up are done by my lovely Teammembers Dòri & Maddy.
D’ori is featured in the magazine with her paintings, too.

2013, a retrospective

I realized I never had so problems writing a retrospective like this one. 2013 was more a personal year then a photographers year for me. I spend a lot of time this year with friends and family instead of thinking about new shootings. One of my new years resolution is to change this and shooting more in 2014.
but for now: Here’s my retrospective of 2013:

The january started like 2012 ended: with an article about me and my first cover shoot for TattooStyle Magazine.

This really feels like it was a century ago.
In the end of january I shoot, together with my lovable team: Maddy, Dóri, Julia and Loraine the „Summer of 63“ theme. It was for a magazine competition. Sadly it’s cold and snowy in the january here in Germany so we had to shoot in the studio. i think I will reshoot this theme someday in the summer, outdoor, maybe on a beach.

In february and march I had a lot of shootings, but –except one – all client shoots, so i’m not able to show you the results. But there was one testshooting for „Favorite Models & Actors“. Most of the Models I work with are from this agency.
Lovely Lucia needed new photos for her sedcard.

And I was featured in the premier issue of Eccentric Edge Magazine with my „Lipstick Jungle“ editorial.

In May i had the last big shooting for this year. I planned it years ago but never had the chance to really shoot it. Till this year. My lovely Maddy helped me with the re-planning of the shooting. Well, I told her from my idea and what I wanted to shoot and she organized it nearly alone. She found amazing clothes for the shooting. It’s so amazing to have a person who know exactly what you want and need for a shooting. Over an old school friend I get in touch with an owner of a garage in the industrial area we liked to use for the shoot, because we needed a kind of a basis-camp for the clothes, and electricity so that we could do Hair and Make-up.

The rest of the year i hadn’t the time for personal shootings.
Summertime was festival time. Maddy, Bella (Bella Müller Fotografie) and I enjoyed the „Golden Oldies“

My village celebrated it’s 700 year anniversary and I was a responsible person ( together with a lot more people) for it. My personal highlight on this weekend was our medieval market.

In autumn I made my first steps as a baby photographer. The model was my sweet little goddaughter. She’s such a little sunshine.

During christmas time, my little Luna was my favorite Model under the christmas tree.

And that was my photographer year 2013. I really hope I’ll have more time for personal shoots in 2014.
I’ll have two, maybe three exhibitions during the year and I hope this will not be the only opportunity in the next 12 month.
I wish you all an amazing new year.

November Princess

all right today i show you one of my favorite shoots from the last years. I took it back in November 2012 and I couldn’t show it you earlier because it was an submission for a magazine and i couldn’t upload it until it was clear, that it wouldn’t be published in the magazine.
Hair and Make-up by Maddy and Dóri. Model is the sweet Vanessa.

Here’s the BTS Video from 2012:

and here are (finally) the finished images:
hope you like them as much as me!
