The spontaneous photo shoot (behind the scenes)

Recently I was traveling with my girlfriend and ended up in Brasov, Romania for a couple of days. We had lived there for 10 months in 2012-2013 and were lucky enough to meet and get to know many wonderful and creative people. While we were walking around, we ran into a couple of them and went out for a coffee. We started to talk and I mentioned a photo shoot I was preparing to do, and one of them, Veronica mentioned that she was interested in doing a nude shoot. Her boyfriend, Roland jumped in as well. I started to tell them about this idea I had and they were both on-board.

The magic lamp

And now for something completely different!

Today is Irina’s birthday. She is my girlfriend/love of my life and I wanted to give her something really special. She is very creative herself and has a keen eye and a great love of beauty. I know that she is particularly fond of Arabic patterns and design so I wanted to incorporate that into the gift somehow. After giving it a lot of thought, I decided to make an art object that was also practical in some way so that she would interact with it and use it on a regular basis. And so, the magic lamp idea was born.

2014 – new year, new beginnings?

Yes and no. The timing sort of worked out that towards the end of 2013 things sort of fell into place and I can finally get started with getting my art back onto my list of main priorities. Although I managed to find a beautiful new studio, do a few exhibitions and photo shoots that I am very proud of, 2013 was a bit slow creatively. I hope I can find more time and energy this year as I would like to spend more time on my art.

Time heals all wounds

Last year was my least productive year in terms of shooting. This was mainly due to the fact that I had two major exhibitions to organize and I was also traveling for a big part of the year. When I was in Copenhagen for my second exhibition in October there was one thing I was almost looking forward to more than the exhibition itself – shooting with Christel and Camilla. I had seen a video of these two girls performing together and I was just blown away. They are acrobats, contortionists, gymnasts, dancers, you name it. The idea of shooting with two performers that have ample experience working together was very exciting. We met to talk about the shoot and we decided that since we also wanted to shoot some pole poses it would be best to shoot in their studio. I rented equipment, found a great assistant, Andreas (who had experience with shooting performers), got all the materials necessary, came up with a great set-up, everything was set.
