Maartje tissu! (and a bit of Harm)

Just a week after their earlier shoot (click!) Maartje asked if I would like to make photos of her tissu act. BOY DID I. As you probably know I get really excited around talented people, specially when they want to work with me. So of to Zoetermeer with me, and on to spending an afternoon with Maartje and Harm running around her :)

image

YAY. Maartje has a very friendly and fun vibe around her. I love how that shows in all the photos. Though in the first one I have to blame myself for making her a bit mysterious with her back towards us and all ;)

image

See! There she is. She has so much fun in what she does. It’s awesome to be around.

image

I also love the colors of her outfit. They really stand out!

image

She really makes you want to do this as well. I mean. She looks so completely at ease and happy with it!

image

THIS PHOTO. ALL THE FREEDOM FEELINGS. Though I’m sure I’d fall right down to the floor ON my face trying to do this myself. Luckily I was on the floor and I got to capture this amazingness :)

image

She would look in the distance thinking about what to do next. Or to Harm, which inevitably led to smiles :)

image

Yay! More fun :)

image

And then all of a sudden she pull this almost 50-ies pinup pose! What! Awesome!

image

We tried for some actionshots as well, knowing the tissu would move and that they might fail miserably as you can’t really predict where her face or any of her limbs might be. BUT THEY WORKED!

image

She goes SUPERFAST. Towards the floor. Really. Winning!

image

Oh and also she has the strength to do this.

image

As mentioned Harm was running around as well. Mostly juggling and at times helping Maartje and me out.

image

Since I was there anyway, I saw no rules about not taking pics of him :)

image

He is jugglings and looking out of the window ladies and gentlemen. Yes he is.

image

I love how these photos aren’t too much JUGGLING but mostly about Harm.

image

And my absolute favorite of Harm. His movements are so finished and tight. You can’t really see that until you freeze it in a photograph. I love this!

Actually I really love the entire shoot. And working with Maartje (and Harm) again! Thank you guys again!

I have the coolest job ever. BAM.
