catwalk time

And No not for me, I’m sitting comfortably at the table, watching nervous beauty’s walk the catwalk.. ohh I felt sorry for them! and then the most stressful part of all.. the question round.. oh dear.. but I have to say it was fun! The location was perfect, lots of beautiful girls to look at and a glass of wine, what more can you ask for 🙂  

Shooting with Marc Lagrange in LA

Marc and I did many shoots together, but a shoot in LA was a big nice surprise:)  I can’t wait to see the images we did!

Greg Gorman and Chateau Marmont

Greg Gorman, friends and me in front of his beautiful house in LA. Good company and good times 🙂
For lunch we went to the famous Chateau Marmont .. yes lots of famous people there!  The price of the bottle of wine that was ordered I will not tell you but I was happy I didn’t have to pay for it 😉  It did tasted extremely well though! And I ate the best artichoke ever!!


me up for auction

Never would have thought.. but I went up for auction at Christie’s 🙂 

Picture was taken at Fuertaventura by Rene de Haan.

Sunny LA

Again it was a early rise 🙁 and I arrived in LA a bit tired, I had one day at home to unpack and repack my suitcase, do some mail, laundry and thank my neighbor and friend for watching over my cat and dog and had to ask them again to look after them.. (sorry neighbor/friend cat&dog). It sometimes feels like schiphol is my second living room, But all the stress quickly disappeared  when I arrived at the location for the video shoot with John Shannon, great guy, an amazing location and a real Hollywood mansion with the Hollywood swimming pool. Great sunny day with a lovely team.



Workshop with Greg Gorman in Austria

Austria here I come! But what a early rise 🙁 really Not my thing! I was at the train station at 4.55 I thought I would be the only one   waiting for the train at that hour but there where already more persons, all looking less sleepy then I did 😮 What a great workshop, Greg choose a super nice location in the middle of the vineyards, beautiful room, gorgeous swimming pool and way too much wine and delicious food… life of a model isn’t that bad:) The shoots where done at a very old Chateau, lots of different settings and different light. We had a group of 17 people and we had lots of fun, okay I had to work hard, run from one group to the next, trying not to get lost at this big Chateau! But after all this running around getting lost and do some posing somewhere in between there was lunch, every day for lunch we went to a different restaurant and ohhh the food was good!! Back to the Chateau we had some nice evening light and worked until 7, back to the resort we could do some swimming/chilling and dress up for dinner.. again nice food & wine and lovely locations. Working with Greg Gorman was so much fun and the students where great too, all kind of ages, the youngest was 19! We all got along well and we all had great picture in the end. I’m already looking forward to next workshop! .. witch will be in may in sunny California 🙂
