Same day, same place !
How lucky am I working with amazing models ! And every time it is a surprise ” Why do you guys want to work with me ?”… It was great fun, lots of pictures to go through for the first set of the day. The sun was really bright so tricky. I met Charli and Stella through Model Mayhem ( serious people, do get a page on that website, it will help you to build a great network of interesting and passionate persons ), they came to Paris and so we met and shoot ! Simple as that. I had no stylist, I worked with the kimono I bought in Japan. A really great day. So here is the first part of it…
MUA and styling: me ( feeling lonely ahah)
Nikon D800, Nikkor f1.8 50mm
Nikon D800, nikkor 1.8f 50mm, sigma 1.8f 24mm. No flash, just natural light and some test on the power of the camera with high ISO ( 800, 1000 ).

The first idea was to shoot on “Birth”, but the more I looked at the pictures, the more I saw some logic behind it, a logic that was going far more than just birth. A cycle of life, with a beautiful blossom of grace and upside down head, something complicated where we fight to find our place.
At the edge of the new year, we all start with some special missions. It is hard to say, “let’s keep it the same as 2013” without thinking “let’s make it even better”. I had the great opportunity to start the year with Apollo as a model, who can interpret a wild range of emotions and being very honest still. It was an amazing time in this abandoned leisure park, where the police gave us a visit thinking someone was hanging dead from the ceiling of the upper floor. Anyway, they left, disturbed by Apollo’s outfit 😉 we obviously weren’t doing anything wrong.
Leave a comment ! I have my two favorites, but I had to make it logical, so here is “(re)cycle “in 8 shoots.
