Toulouse ones again

I do love Toulouse, my first shoot in Toulouse with Patrick I really did not see much more apart from the airport the taxi the hotel, studio. But this time I stayed for 5 days, traveling around the area for different shootings and I finally got to see this lovely place a bit better. I had a bit of a rough start though when I left my phone in the taxi at midnight! How stupid of me! So lots of stress there but the hotel staff was very friendly and helped me get my phone back. After this shock I could enjoy the hotel, I had the beautiful Saint Exupery suite, and of course the book ” le petit prince” was there.  In the morning a lovely breakfast, I love a good breakfast 🙂 and ready to shoot. Traveled the next day towards the beach, stayed a few nights there in again lovely place. The shoots on the beach went great although one morning there was the early shoot, I am not a very early morning person, and without my breakfast working a few hours in the bloody hot sun I got a sun stroke! Never had that in my life, Thank god we kind of finished the shooting cause I was feeling really sick 🙁  Anyway I had very good week in a nice place and hope to come back.

Mallorca, Blue sky Blue sea .. Me.. Great pictures :)

I just came back from a lovely trip to Mallorca with Rene de Haan. Good pictures guaranteed! I love working with him, he usesIMG-20130419-WA0000 natural light and very Very limited photoshop. Loved the sun, really needed some sun, and Mallorca is so green! So of course pictures with palm-trees and super blue sea where made. But what is with all the people on the bikes?? I thought I lived in a “bike” country but even I haven’t seen anything like that. For now I put 2 pictures in my gallery, the rest in up for publication so we need to have some patient there.

Always a pleasure

And there it was again, a shoot with Ivor Paanakker, we shoot together for many many times now and it is still always a pleasure. I do like styling, although this is always extremely limited with Ivor 🙂 but we had a great stylist who came with some nice pieces of jewelry some kick-as shoes and a small wardrobe. The make-up artist did a great job making me look like a diva with some superrr long eyelashes. We all worked a full day, had lots of fun and did many different settings. Images are dark, oily, wet floor.. I can’t show you pictures yet but I’m sure you will love them.

Freaks&Models with Jef Poldervaart

What a shoot! Okay the title gives it away.. freaks .. and me as the model, or was I a freak too??  🙂 Anyway when I arrived the room was filled with “freaks”  I felt like i walked strait into a circus, all kinds of people in funny clothes. The shoot was a 20th century shoot so my hair was short, my eyebrows super thin and my lips made pointy. I can’t even recognize myself in the pictures! We did many different thing and one of them was with a dog, I had to hold this pretty, 30kg!! dog around my neck standing on heals.. Yes the things models have to do 😉  The dog did great! What a model! Black skin, long skinny legs, big brown eyes an natural beauty. This mixed with my Black skin, long skinny legs, big brown eyes.. Perfect picture 😉  I had so much fun with this fun group of people and we made so many picture that in the end I was running late for a birthday so I arrived with BIG HUGH hair, here and there a feather in it and funny make-up on! Most definitely I was the freak that evening 🙂

All new !

Yeahhh my new bussines card finally arrived and I do like it a lot 🙂 Hope you like it too??
