I met Harm and Maartje during a 5 minute shoot for some promotional photos. I didn’t really get to talk to them much but lucky me they mailed me to make photos for them! Woohoo! The photos are for their act ‘Weg’ which you can check out here (click!)
Please don’t shoot me if I’m getting it wrong Maartje & Harm but their performance is about Maartje playing Harm’s wife. She wants to leave, and he wants her to stay.
They never speak but tell you the story through movement. It’s so cool and impressive.
Also they didn’t mind doing things a million times so I could get every angle!
CHECK THAT OUT. The trust between these two is something amazing to witness.
Her eyes. All points for pretty go to her eyes.
They played out the performance for me so I could capture the feeling. It was really cool in the middle of a field we got to ‘borrow’ from a local farmer.
Did I mention they were real troopers? We had to sprint out of the field several times with all our gear to hide from the rain!
They play this piece so well. Really. If you get the chance to see them perform. GO.
Look at our location! Woo!
And then there was this orange ball scene. WOW.
These two are making a new definition of juggling (ok circus folk please don’t laugh at me I know nothing of juggling and this is SO MUCH COOLER than creepy clowns).
Did you guess they’re the cutest couple in real life too? If not now I told ya :P I think it really helps how they perform together.
Also sexiest photo with orange ball EVER. DONE.
Right after this a MASSIVE amounts of rain came down so we ran for the car.
I loved their patience with me so I could make these kind of shots as well. I love the details and hands.
You see how she is looking away all the time? Wanting to leave. I love how all the photos portray a bit of the theme.
Though not sure she wants to leave!
Also they can do cool stuff!
I love doing shoots like this! Where I can try to add something to someone else’s creation. It’s superfun for me to work with such creative and talented people! THANK YOU Maartje and Harm :)
