During this shoot we wanted to step outside of our comfort zone and recreate a soft dreamy setting.

I took this picture of beautiful @model_dg_ during the two-day-workshop I held in April this year. I used available light and a reflector. You don’t need super hightec equipment to capture stunning portraits and that’s exactly what I wanted to show my students.
With my Model Jessica I worked for the first time. I had the idea to make some pics with her and my Nikon F3 analog camera as prop. We made a series in front of this bamboo garden. She wears a gorgeous hat and so she looks like an Explorer in the jungle. Therefore I called the pic "the Explorer". I used natural light only.

This was going to be my first maternity session and I wanted to capture something unforgettable, something dramatic, something that wouldn't just be shared on social media but something really special that this family could cherish and hang on their wall.
If a photograph speaks for itself it doesnt need further explanation except a thank you for the amazing model and her dedication
Beautiful mother to be, Andrea, looked so angelic and beautiful during our sunset shoot with colourful lupins. Thank you for selecting one my favourite photos.
The beauty of a sunset combined with the beauty of the woman. The mountain lake is located in the middle of the wonderful landscape of Adelboden.
This shoot we tried to add some color again.. Anna loved this look and this is probably one of my favorite photos of this photoshoot
'The truth is rarely pure and never simple'. I worked with her for the first time, I had few BW retro and concept images in my thoughts and they were all brought to life beautifully by her. It was a long session and this was captured before I ended up the shoot.
They are such young children but their eyes, apart from being childishly naive, kind and curious, are somehow mature and wise, but at the same time distrustful, on the alert. It shows the experience of the street and the struggle for survival.
The Dancing Princess
The 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 at important occasions such as business opening events, special celebrations or wedding ceremonies, or may be used to honor special guests by the Chinese communities. A dramatic movement created by the Princess on the floor by move her feet along with lion dancers.

It was a day when we decided to be spontaneous, not knowing what we wanna photograph. Just playing around with the hair was a surprisingly cool idea. I didn't have an assistant so, you can only imagine how many times my model was tossing her hair.
I don't know what to say, I'm so grateful that I was able to implement this picture with the dress and the model. It's like me to find one of my best pictures and I'm very proud of it, as well as of my model. Your development in the short time is so great and admirable, just bravo Lina.
This shoot I took actually at the end of the photo session which was in a photo studio with strobes. But this photo was taken with available light indoors through a big window.
Lina brought raspberries to our shooting. And this lovely outfit. The fruits somehow disappeared. So we've only used the outfit.

Deep in the essence of every soul is a desire to feel what it means to "wander in wonder." Freedom, joy, and fresh experiences are luxurious invitations common to almost all people.
Travel is arguably the one process that encompasses all of these luxuries in a single framework. Seeing children playing naked and unabashed on a sandy beach, clothed in nothing but their birthday suits, and with sand between their toes - this is one of the grandest freedoms we can encounter. Feeling the skin of one's foot land on God's green earth opens one's spirit to the vastness of greater possibilities if you have never before experienced it except in the pages of a book. In this space, lands collide. The mountains touch the sea, complementary races embrace new cultures, and we experience acceptance. Travel is the most glamorous expression of a well-lived life.
Two gals with the same name just vibe, right? So model-Lara and I went to this attic equipped with my cam and an idea. the light comes from a tiny window and a bit of help from my Speedlite. there must have happened some kind of magic up there because I bet I couldn't recreate this light and texture if I wanted to. All in all, it was a lucky shot I guess ;)
Initially, the color of the flowers was yellow however after reducing the colors just to green and white, the picture turned into something more special.
Some sunshine, a hat, an elegant dress and of course the most beautiful model in the world makes this picture complete to me! This is the second award I receive with my oldest daughter as a shining center in the photograph.
