This blog post I will talk you through some images I shot during a workshop with Nadine.
A while ago I decided it was time to add motion to our portfolio.
Some of you might know that I already filmed for a long time, but never serious, always only during trips, holidays, special occasions etc. When I started doing photography more serious somehow video moved to the back, but I still loved doing motion. In todays world I think to survive as a photographer you will have to add motion to your portfolio, in 10 years time the market will be changed a LOT and motion will probably be a normal part of everyday work in a “photo” studio, moving covers, moving images in a fashion spread on the iPad10 (or android or whatever) will be just as normal as we now see steady images.
I could of course stop there but somehow I always want more, so I decided to do 5 videoclips for my own portfolio, so that means “FOR FREE”, some artists responded and I do have to add I’m picky for what I choose. I wanted a pop song, a rap song, a pop ballad and a Rock or Metal song so doing almost every genre I love. Today you see clip 3 in my adventure into video editing and filming.
Although most of what I shoot is of the female gender I do love to work with male models, and when I get the chance to shoot a model and theme that really fits my needs for my portfolio I of course jump to the occasion.
When Scott Kelby asked me if I knew some good models for his Amsterdam Seminar in the “Light it, shoot it, retouch it” tour I decided to search for a male model, because to be honest good female models I have plenty but good male models is a lot more difficult, from the responses I got Yves was without a doubt my first choice, part of the deal was that he would also got a shoot with me in our studio and you can imagine that I loved doing that. As a theme we decided to make a mix between boxing and fashion. In this blog post the result from that photoshoot.
