I was in terrible need of some vitamineD, so this trip to Spain was perfectly timed. I shot with Pablo Bilbao for Relleciga Swimwear and we shot some Babita Mia Swimwear and Bonvie Bikinis while we were there.
I can share a few BOCs of my shoot with Akinari Yakomoto. We shot art nude, vintage lingerie and latex on location.
Second shoot of the day was with Armin Reinhardt. We started with a black and white beauty set and ended with blade-runner inspired portraits. So cool to do! I could play around with the tube lights and light myself with it.
Day 3: Sankt Gallen, Swittzerland
Got the chance to shoot at this wonderful location with Donnerstern, an old villa in the center of Sankt Gallen, which will also be where I spend the night.
Day 4: Amriswil, Switzerland
Next up was Bruno Birkhoffer, who has been on my "want to shoot with" list for a few years. We shot portraits, art nude, a commercial set for Filanea jewelry and fashion. It was so nice to work with him. He is very nice and professional and had all these great ideas! I loved shooting in the hammock as well, it was definitely challenging and probably not very elegant in between poses, but really amazing what you can do with something so simple. It created opportunity to try out new and crazy poses, things that are impossible when posing while standing. I love how it turned out!
Last weekend I was in Berlin to shoot with 2 talented photographers. I got up early in the morning for a relaxing bath, before we got started with the first shoot.
First photographer of the day was Martin from 1m89Photography. We shot a lot of beautiful latex and although it had been a while since I shot latex, I loved it! Edit is by Lara Gilles Photography.
Body: Jacky Villain latex
Leggings: Pandora Deluxe Latex
We ended the shoot with a yum vegan meal at Coa. If you travel to Berlin and are looking for a vegan or vegetarian restaurant, I definitely recommend this restaurant! I had Sweet potato fries, rice and tofu with a vegan dip sauce.
Second shoot of the day was with Lara Gilles. We're still keeping our photos secret because they're up for publication. Let's just say it was completely different from what we shot in the morning.
Late arrival at the little house where I will be spending the next week in the middle of nowhere, chasing beautiful locations, creating art.
Full day shooting and relaxing at the house and swimming pool. It's sooooo beautiful!
Getting up before sunrise to shoot with the rising sun above the Mediterranean Sea.
Best thing about life on an island? We ended the day like we started it, with the sun low above the ocean.
We're getting up early again to shoot with the morning light. Not sunrise this time, but the soft morning light.
As the sun is climbing higher, we're using the harsher light for underwater photography in this beautiful bay.
Some afternoon fun with watermelon. Sweet and refreshing.
Evening walk to Atlantis, enjoying our last evening on the island. This place was so amazing. Almost impossible to show on photos. If you're up for the climb down and afterwards up again, you should definitely check it out!
Meeting up with Bjorn Sagen for a full day's shoot at The Hague, first inside, then outside on the beach with a beautiful sunset.
12 May - Zwolle
Time for my first pole dance lesson. Haha xD
If you live in or close to zwolle, I can absolutely recommend the class I followed by the lovely Haas! Great teaching skills and unimaginable patience.
I like to pretend that I have a good pole basis from climbing rocks and trees for my art nude work, but when I see this picture I am not so sure anymore xD
13 May - Zwolle & Gorinchem
Afternoon shoot with Juul De Vries in a very serene looking forest, shooting film and practicing my acrobatics while looking serene and trying to ignore my aching body from pole dancing.
And evening shoot with Me-Chiel, shooting my renewed and extended Hadopelagic collection and a sweet pink bubblegum set. (Coming soon)
14 May - Venlo
Shooting with Bob Mans today. A natural light set on location and fashion set in the studio. We had some difficulties shooting the natural light set as the weather was getting very cloudy after the first few days of my tour had been warm and sunny. I still love the results though!
The set in the studio turned out really nice. We used a lot of baby oil for the wet skin look, which made my skin super soft and smell nice.
15 May - Helden
Car trouble made me need to skip one location on this trip, shoot is postponed so I'll write about it soon :)
In the evening I was dancing for All Area Events in Club Palladio in these wonderful outfit!
