Anne: yoga teacher extraordinare

When I received Anne’s mail containing the words ‘yoga teacher’ i could barely wait to go out and play. Eh. Make photos. I had a ton of ideas and she was in for all of them.

I know exactly nothing about yoga so eh, sorry to be disappointing about explaining what’s going on in the photos ;)

The Pendulum’s Motion

A bit back the guys from Pendulum’s Motion asked me to make their promo pics. Hurrah! Somehow I had just thought of a cool location a week before. So this totally had to happen.

In case you’re wondering, it’s in Hoek van Holland, near and on the pier.

These guys were real troopers. As soon as we arrived not only did it start to rain, like crazy. Hail soon followed. By then we were halfway on the pier and decided to go on. Luckily! Cause I really love the shoot.

As you can see we were soon rewarded with bits of blue sky. Don’t be fooled. I was being sandblasted hah.

These were a lot of fun to hang out with. I love it when people just show up and ‘be’.

And they did! One of my favorites.

Truth be told. They all ran off like little girls after the wave hit them ;) (OH sorry that was not ok for the rock n roll image :P).

A good thing we have this shot. For their badassery image.

Reflections. Gotta love them.

The guys are currently using this one for their shows :)!

I feel you’re not believing me on the bad weather part..

I love this. It could be anywhere. The waves. Love it.

Thanks for asking me gentlemen! And for being such heroes and not giving up on the shoot! We were definitely rewarded!

Hunkemöller: Saudi Arabia

A few weeks back I was called by awesome stylist Thyra with the following question: “Are you interested in shooting a campagne for Hunkemoller in Saudi Arabia?”. Obviously I was!

This shoot was no easy feat for the styling ladies! In Saudi Arabia (SA) there are rules.. Certainly no models wearing the underwear, but nothing resembling the female body either. So for each line (swimwear, bridal, etc) the girls made a setting. Girls? Yes Thyra and Nadieh Hendrix, another amazing stylist!

For the shoot we went to a location in Heenvliet thanks to lovely Jan Jaap and Willeke! We were prepared for a long day (12 photos) and were packing food and drinks (and chocolate, of course).

All trough the day we had a great work ethic going and we were done completely on time and before loosing any of the daylight (most of the photos are taken using ambient light).

These are my favorite four from the day!

Lots of girlyness and pink and glitters and flowers! Hurrah!

Sadly I won’t see any of it in stores since I’m not planning any trips to SA. So, if anyone DOES visit. Please make some pics of the stores for me?
