By the end of last year a documentary on France 3 aired about the wonderful and in the meantime good friend Elsa Destange. She is not only a very talented and enthusiastic model but also a big-hearted person. In a documentary by Gannay-Meyer Denis the three parts of her life are reflected in a wonderful way and I had the chance of doing an interview about my thoughts and experience about working with Elsa. I do not want to miss the opportunity to show you this little movie wich aired on France 3 by the end of 2013. Thanks to Elsa for all our shootings we worked out during the last years in Paris, Zurich and Poitiers.
While a friend of mine ask me to do a portrait for his birthday card he came across the idea of looking young on one portrait and older on the other. First my friend wanted to look very old with light grey hair and strong wrinkle but I decided to go more natural with less as possible photoshop so I made him younger than he looks now and older to go in both directions. With this process I did not have to alter both images too much. Everything is as it is, i just used some dark grey for hair and increased contrast on the older portrait. The fact that the poses and attitude helps to increase the effect does cut the need of too much photoshop too. Here`s the result of this work beside my usual creations. By the way he will be 30 this year.

Last Tuesday i shoot a new art style editorial with the title “Rite of Passage”. The postproduction is still in process. The complete set will show up soon. Again i worked with one of my favorite model Alexa and she was the perfect choice for such a shooting where acting skills were claimed. It is all about religious conversion, tribal, drugs and rites shown in an artificial way as short as possible. Special thanks to my beloved wife Bridget, to Alexa and Alexander.
Here`s a sample.

Yesterday i worked on some different projects, single and series. I just finished the postproduction on “Laundry Girl”, a little funny Series with a little hint on Vintage Pinup`s. Beside this i continued working on Single images in the theme of organic furniture designs combined with nude bodies. I was contacted by Gabriela and when i saw her portfolio i immediately knew i have to work with her. She`s very experienced and very talented and simpatico too. Thank you for sharing your talent.
Just finished my latest Art Project entitled “Bizarre Drama Triangle”. An innocent, white dressed girl with a whip and for the compensation a white balloon to make her look innocent enough. The white dressed girl acts with sexual aggression and the black dressed girl is the victim. Do you know which girl is standing in the last image? I think nobody will. Special thanks to Alex for sharing her talent and Bridget who played the dead white girl.. or was it the black girl?
Yesterday I worked on a Fashion/Art Editorial together with Lianna Mueller which just hit the website. I would like to thank Lianna for sharing her incredible talent and time. Special thanks to my beloved wife to always help and assist me during these demanding shootings.

Last week i worked on a bigger Project entitled “Dusk and Dawn”. The concept consists of a clean and white soft mood in comparison with a harder black and dark mood. I used similar but appropriate poses on both themes to get the link to each of them. The studio used like a stage to create a theatric look. We worked during two days and the model and friend Elsa Destange brought in her full devotion into this project. I would like to thank Elsa and my beloved Wife for the help for bringing this project to paper exactly the way i had it in my mind. Here`s a short film done with a mobile-phone of the Set.
