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 🙂

@ the beach with Rene de Haan

Yeahh sunny weather in Holland and since Rene and I both had a day off we decided to go to beach for a shoot and have some fun. Lots of people on the beach but Rene has his secret spot for a shoot. Of course when you shoot in a public place people will stop for a few seconds to have a look and then they move on, but this time there was a guy who felt the need to sit down and watch the show.. I think he really enjoyed it cause he sat there for quit some time!

Zambia

A short trip to Zambia for the elephant foundation, I love Afrika and her wildlife, if only they would stop the poaching… I had an amazing time, visited the elephant orphanage, heard some heartbreaking story’s and saw the amount of work and effort it takes to take care and rehabilitate little baby elehpants who’s mummies got killed for there big teeth.

Took some real nice shots.. no not with a gun but with my cam 😉

 

A video in London

I do like London, but the weather.. it was probably not the best time of the year..Summer time.. This time the trip was not for me as a model but for a documentary about my boyfriend and I just had to play his girlfriend, oh dear acting with a video in your face is so much harder then posing as a model, all though this requires some acting skills too!!

 

Andreas Bitesnich in Vienna

I did many shoots and met lots of great interesting people, Andreas Bitesnich is certainly one of them. I stayed the weekend at his place, a gorgeous house with amazing architecture. We made some great images and I enjoyed my time with him. He took me to this really nice restaurant on the lake and we talked for hours. Unfortunately when traveling for shoots you usually  don’t get to see the surroundings of where you are, so I must go back to Vienna again.. I have seen the airport a couple of times now, think it’s time to see outside the airport. 🙂

And I received a big print! 🙂
