Focus on imaging 2013 Birmingham

Oempf, it’s over and done…..
Well Focus on Imaging that is.
What an incredible show this was.


For us these shows are not only cool to look around but also a great way to network and meet up with a lot of great friends like Hector from DxO (we have some cool stuff coming from that corporation), Alastair and the team from SmugMug (more on that later this week), Erik from Expoimaging who just released an amazing striplight (reviewed on this blog a few days ago), the team from Mamiya/Leaf and Phase One (great new camera) and of course our friends from Tethertools and we can of course not forget our buddies/groupies/crazy guys Glyn Dewis and Daveeee (and many many more).


During the show I managed to film some interviews for the next episode of “The DOORhof is always open” with Maisy, Steve Howdle and our buddy James Schmelzer (In my opinion one of the best promoters for constant light) and this week we will also film an interview with no one less than Drew Gardner.


I’ve been one of the guestspeakers on the booth of our very good friends from “The Flash Centre”. Normally during tradeshows  you are often incredibly limited space wise but not when you work for Elinchrom and “The Flash Centre” a spacious stage and when they asked me what I wanted to do and I replied “Get me a smoke machine” I thought “this is never gonna happen”…… well it did. And when you give me room and a smoke machine…. well weird things can happen.

Nadine as Robot

Last weekend I was invited to participate in a shoot in Almelo, the location was an abandoned building.
My first model of choice for shoots like this is of course Nadine, and luckily for me I’m often also her photographer of choice to work out some of the more extreme stuff (and extreme she can be). For this day I will divide the results over 3 different blogposts to also take some time to explain the techniques behind the shots.

Nadine in style

Today I share some images we shot during a “free style” session with Nadine.
Nadina (as usual) did all the styling and makeup herself.

For me sometimes doing a “free style” session is incredibly important, these are the kind of session where everything goes, so time to experiment with light, smoke, colors, crazy themes etc. And it’s a great way to find new techniques of course.
