Here are some impressions of this weeks shootings for Blumenbüro Holland. Thanks to the wonderful team!
A cute series! Thanks for the upload to your new website, Ana:
Today, we did a fashion shooting for the next lookbook for 7YRDS, a Spanish menswear brand.
While getting some Barcelona backgrounds on Paseo de Gracia, a latino looking girl came by and asked our model Yulffi whether she could get a photo with him. I thought, man, she looks like Beyoncé. When I turned around to tell this to her boyfriend I saw Jay Z standing there…. I was almost a bit too surprised to take a proper picture of this:
In early March, a series of fine cooperations between Bloemenbureau Holland, the marketing association of Dutch flower producers, and foto di matti started. Not to forget the amazing team of Zucker.Kommunikation, that does the PR and the photo production.
If you know me personally, you will also know that these projects do not only give me a lot of photographic inspiration. Flowers and plants are also very high up in the list of my private passions.
Here is the very first result: A series of photos on the trend of detox with plants as nutritional ingredients, published in the Blumenbüro blog Pflanzenfreude.de
Madrid is my personal finish for this fashion season. Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Madrid, from now on accompanied by the trade show MoMad, was the focus of the reportage that I did during the last days for Women’s Wear Daily.
Visiting Mads Dinesen in his atelier led me to Northern Berlin. Its in Wedding and even more out where the artists and young designers hang out, that the tourists are looking for in Kreuzkölln. Mads is a Danish fashion designer, whose show I first saw last summer during the Berlin Fashion Week: A cool, dark collection presented very much in the form of an art exhibition.
Here is what I lensed for Women’s Wear Daily :
Escaping from frozen Berlin, I have the honor to document the 080, Barcelona’s small but very entertaining fashion week for WWD. Unlike in classy Madrid, Barcelona fashionistas love to dress edgy and wild.
For a change, I very much enjoy the reportage approach: It’s just me and the camera. No sophisticated light settings nor directing a whole production team.
The Mediterranean sun might help a bit (;
The German magazine Musikexpress presented Berlin fashion talent Sissi Goetze with my portrait.
Sissi Goetze won the Style Award for 2013 of this leading German music magazine.
For the portrait session, I visited Sissi in her Kreuzberg atelier on a dark winter day. To get enough day light I positioned her very close to the window. But with the semi-transparent curtain closed to get a very soft light quality.
