First visit from Cesare at my studio in Lenzburg, Switzerland, testing some strobe effects. This one was taken with one big octa box.
In Bern, there was this wide old staircase. And then there was Jovana with her hat, my absolutely breathtaking looking model. One of the results of this photoshoot is this picture, which I called "I have my hat on". I am still thrilled and hope you're too. Only natural light was used.
From a studio shooting with one of my favourite models. I've been working with for more than four years.

Corinne and I wanted to do a "Midsummer" shooting. Due to bad weather, we had to postpone the shooting several times. So we hoped, that the third attempt would work. Unfortunately, it started to rain and we decided to continue our shooting in the boathouse. Lighting conditions were gentle and sensual. What a day!
What a great couple was this! We did a lot of different sets, this is one of my favorites of this set. It was a pleasure taking pictures.
@joelle_niel and I didn't plan these shots down to the last detail before the shooting and I'm all the more pleased how brilliant the pictures from this series have become.
“Anyone is easy to love when there’s nothing but sunshine. But I am asking to be loved when there’s rain, thunderstorms, hurricanes, and tsunamis. I want someone who will be there to enjoy the rainbow with me.” – Pierre Jeanty
The Girl with the Pearl earring with a personal touch. Loved working together with this sweet colleague photographer to create her perfect and personal portrait as the girl with the pearl earring.
Thanks to the amazing @yve_ninety_two. All we created in Frankfurt that day, was completely spontaneous. Special thanks to @denis_behrens_picturesworld for making this shooting possible.

This is a portrait of Ariana Madix with Tom Sandoval for the Bravo series "Vanderpump Rules". This portrait was lit with one light and I used a gel to mix the colors of natural skin and blue tones. Highlighting their profile features while extracting their emotions through this portrait.
This is Teodora Duhovnikova. One of the best Bulgarian actresses. She has acted in many movies and series, but what makes her a really good actress are the roles in the theater. She plays at the National Theater of Bulgaria.
A small series made in the garden, Alexia is the model. Since I got to know her, I ask her not to smile, not to laugh, because she spends her time having a happy face...in the end, I like it when she is the way she is.
This picture was made in a heliport, some friends ask me to share a day there with a dancer, a bodybuilder, and a pole dancer, so we went there to spend a day having fun and taking a picture, at the end of the day the sunset was incredible so I took Any in front of the sun, ask her to pose, we throw the fabric into the air, and take this shoot.
The Princess and Barongsai/Singa Barong: Lion dance is a form of traditional dance in Chinese culture and other Asian countries in which performers mimic a lion's movements in a lion costume to bring good luck and fortune. The lion dance is usually performed during the Chinese New Year and other Chinese traditional, cultural, and religious festivals. It may also be performed on important occasions such as business opening events, special celebrations, or wedding ceremonies, or may be used to honor special guests by the Chinese communities.
This is Suellen. Using a single flashlight, we wanted to try something new and unusual with the main focus on her eyes. A photo that impresses with its details.
The photo was taken in my studio, in São José dos Campos, Brazil. Thank you very much, Suellen.
This photo was taken during our first photoshoot with Vida. It was a short outdoor shooting but we were able to take beautiful photos.

African beauty. During the Covid-19 crisis, social contact was scarce and yet a new movement raised for the sake of the emancipation of black lives. To me as a photographer, it is and will always be a goal to highlight the beauty of Africa. During these revolutionary times, I sensed a desire to showcase the beauty of colored people in particular. My dear Friend @inesmbl reached out to me at the same time I was thinking of reaching out to her. Somehow our minds were thinking of the same thing, which resulted in this unique image!
This picture was taken at the golden time, sunrise, in the lowest place in the world, the Dead Sea. In the early hours, round mushrooms of salt appear on which one can stand and in this case be photographed. After a few hours, they disappear into the sea. This is truly a moment of nature's magic.
