I had an assignment to photograph +/- 40 models for Euromodel Agency in Amsterdam and I teamed up with make-up artist & stylist Lisa Schuil and for a couple of days per week we managed to photograph 3 or 4 models per day, in three sets of clothing each.
While I was setting up the studio at Euromodels office Lisa did the models make-up and hair and styled them, and when the first model was ready to go I would photograph him or her and Lisa would continue with the next model and we looped it.
After the first model was photographed, the second model would come to me to be photographed and this was going on for 9 or 12 times per day.
My goal was to have beautiful light on the models, I had a windmachine and I wanted each and every model to look different and also pose different for each set.
I made beauty shots, 3/4 shots and full body shots.
This was for the Euromodel book that was eventually sent to clients all over the world.
After we were done and all the models had been photographed, I would ask one of the models to stand right in front of me and stare into the lens.
I wanted real eyecontact, and when that happened I could feel it and that was the exact moment I made these photo's, which were autonomous and for my own portfolio.
The photo's were published on Fashionising.com and people shared them like wildfire on Pinterest!
