Rodrigo - New Angles

When was the last time you thought of how many noises your ears picked up without you even registering it? Or how many things your eyes saw today? Or how many times you used your mouth to eat, speak, smile or kiss somebody? And best of all, have you ever thought about the amount of work you give your hands per day? How many objects they have touched or picked up. How many times they were used to express your excitement, your anger, your happiness?

Doing this photo shoot with Rodrigo, made me notice and appreciate all the little things we overlook that our bodies can do!

So here you have, not a portrait, but portraits of the portrait of Rodrigo, a kind-hearted, handsome Argentinian boy who followed his heart to Berlin.

Paris in Love and Hell

Here is Paris.

I did these as I was feeling a bit off and decided to disctract myself with Art. It worked and I didn't have to talk to anyone or try to push anything down.

I know you've heard it all before, but distracting yourself with art is an amazing way to overcome certain mental blockages or release yourself..from yourself. You know that feeling when it seems like you've sat in one place going over and over a situation? All that it does is create false realisations and even more anxiety. 

Putting your focus into something productive helps you overcome certain feelings just by the simple act of dicstraction. Reminding yourself that, even if you do feel strongly about something, it doesn't HAVE to take over and you do have the power to shake it off and take a break from thinking about whatever it is making you feel like shit. The sense of relief is more gratifying and addicting than wallowing in pitty.  

Take a look and lose yourself in the image. Think about what emoitons come up and why it is so.

SUPERMARKET SPLENDOR fashion editorial --> out now on The Forumist <--

Check out this super fun and colourful editorial I shot with my team at the Dong Xuan Center in Berlin on The Forumist

This shoot started out with just a spontaneous idea between stylist, Lauren Victoria Craig, and myself as we had recently reunited in Berlin. It all happened within a week as our magic just worked between us. Ideas rolled out one after the other and we managed to get an amazing team and concept together. Our model is Luisa Weissflog who's make up was done by Bülent Musdu.


It was such a great experience doing this shoot as we had to be incognito and super organised to get the shots we wanted. 

To make the day run more smoothly, Lauren and I went to the center a day before to check out all the shops and areas as potential locations. We then went back to the outfits put together and colour-coordinated them to the most appropriate shop. This meant we could be quick getting to our sets and spend more time photographing than walking around aimlessly. 
 

We we all super happy with the outcome of the photos. It was test run that turned into our favourite work so far. 

It is such an amazing feeling not only getting a brilliant outcome of images but also finding a team that works so well together. 

This was definitely not the last time we will all work together! (actually, Ive got more of Luisa coming soon!)

I hope you enjoy the work as much as we did!
