In this closeup shot, the model shows off her beauty, even with no makeup and only dampened hair.

This shot was done one a model sharing. Even though I normally don't like model sharing, this one was great. Because of two reasons: The model was great and not fixed to the tyical model poses. The second reason was: The group of photographers was quite limited and all of them were experienced. This lead to a special situation: Every photographer was strongly influenced by the creativity of the others.
When I started to shoot I said to my model: I also want to do something different with you. Trust me - but please close your eyes. We spoke to each other and went from the left end of the studio to the other corners. With closed eyes (of the model). And in between, I took my photos.
This shot was done when my model was standing in the middle of the studio. No chair, nothing to lean on...
This image of the teen model, McKenna Driscoll (instagram.com/mckenna.driscoll), was captured in the Historic Southend neighborhood of Charlotte, NC., through the windows of the new Superica Restaurant. This historic building was once an old textile mill and when recently renovated, the old brick structure and industrial windows were left intact creating some excellent photo shoot locations. McKenna is represented by MP Miami (instagram.com/mpmanagementmiami).
In May, I invited friends (models and photographers) for a photo shoot in a hotel. To my great surprise, Lara suddenly stood there. One of the photographers invited her because he knew that I would like to shoot with her. It was a wonderful day.
