The initial contact with Lisa was in July through a model website. Harry and her made the necessary arrangements and set the date, hoping that the weather would work with them. The photoshoot was made in a small recreational lake “Haarijnseplaas” in the suburbs of Utrecht.
The location and model where a success, with at the end a very nice set of photos according to Harry, even though the weather was tricky, a combination of rain and sun, with even a rain shower, that lasted around 10 minutes during which Lisa had to shelter herself in the fitting room – a “tent”.
In one location they managed to use different sceneries: grass, water, a pier and 2 m high poles, where Lisa climbed and posed with high heels.
"The session went effortlessly. Lisa is by no means a shy person" told Harry "she laughs easily and shows interest and enthusiasm all the time. Things to remark about Lisa: her wardrobe (with a special personal style), her long balanced figure and beautiful smile. In short, it was a pleasure working with her, it is a big plus for the project." Lisa told us “I liked working with Harry because he was open and clear in his communication. What I liked a lot of the session was the space for suggestions from my side, but also the tips or directions from Harry and of course the different spots gave the pictures great variety.”
Thanks to both of you for giving us permission to publish the photos in Streetfashion MagZZine.
According to Colin the Idea for the shoot was an urban fashion theme, with various artworks used in what is now an abandoned Ministry of Defence base in the North East of England. The site has given way to an array of talented artists, where the walls seem to change every few weeks, with new works. Colin had worked with Harriotte Lane before in the session Newcastle City Centre and told us, that she is both, very talent, a joy to work with and that she has a very bright future ahead of her.
Since we assume, that you already have seen our cover photo, we got the opportunity to show you some more photos out of this session and some making off photos as well. Thanks to Harriotte and Colin for granting us permission to show all of these amazing photos.
This editorial project was created by photographer Xavi Carol with the costumes of the fashion designer José Rivero. The intention was to show the versatility of black short skirt dresses and for men's fashion bring a business and elegance approach in an environment linked to the rural world.
The Shoot took place in Cavas Naverán, a famous wine and cava company in the Alt Penedès region. The idea was to unite that concept of climate and typical Mediterranean landscape typical for countries with wine production
Suheylen has a Latin look with tanned skin, which reinforces that concept of sun and Mediterranean climate. Two more series were made, soon to be published, with the models Sònia Pérez and Sergio Fernández.
The series have been designed to locate 3 different "backgrounds", that link with the wine concept: Within a field of vineyards, providing a totally rural landscape, on a metal stair near industrial tanks, where the cava is processed and in a public area of the cava, where there is a relic and you get a very casual and everyday look.
The participants of this series were Xavi Carol - El Molí de la Llum as creative director and photographer, model Suheylen Herrera, makeup artist and hair stylist Sònia Pérez. The style of the photos was developed by Suheylen Herrera and Xavi Carol, the fasion designer was José Rivero “Ropa de autor”.
Streetfashion MagZZine likes to thank the entire team and Cavas Naverán.
While searching the web for magazines about models, photographers and fashion, Tímea came across the article about Harry's "public places project" here in Streetfashion MagZZine, that draw her attention. She got interested in working with Harry, got in touch and they planned a shoot in Utrecht. "Unbelievable as it sounds, but it was just that easy!" said Tímea.
As for all the other models participating in this project, Harry asked Tímea to send him some pictures of the outfits, she wanted to wear for the shoot, so he could make a decision about the locations. Harry chose for less crowded places to make her feel comfortable due to her experience level.
It was beginning of this week, that we discovered this amazing photo with great dynamic in Streetfashion MagZZine's Facebook group. We immediately contacted photographer Heiko Decker. And here we are to share the photo of model Denise Scheller with all of you. Heiko also provided some background info about this session:
"Denise and I know each other already for a few months and in total had three common sessions. What I particularly value at Denise, is the easiness and humor, but also her absolute professionalism and focus during a session. Just joking and laughing, but as soon as the camera goes up, she is immediately in her pose or scene. In most cases, there are only a few shots required to get a great result with her. I don't have to tell you anything about her fantastic appearance cause this is obvious.
This specific picture was created during the photowalk in Würzburg (WüWalk). We arranged this together with other photographers and models and used the whole day all the corners of the city for different sets. Already at the beginning Denise and I had discussed, that we wanted to make something in the street and fashion style. When I discovered this alley, I quickly realized, what we could do here. As I already mentioned, Denise does not need many guidance. So the scene was briefly explained and then we started. However, some patience was necessary in order to have no passers-by in the picture.
Since I always try to work with as much aperture as possible, we had to make a few attempts to get the correct pose, the movement of the hair, position of the legs and arms as we wanted.
For the lighting I used a HSS capable plug-in flash with a 60 cm Softbox. The light came from the upper left and was triggered by remote control. My wife supported me. She ran along with us in the same distance to ensure a perfect illumination. She also has some experience in this, as we do almost all the shootings together and she as an assistant and good soul is on the set." said Heiko about the session.
As equipment Heiko used his Canon EOS 5D Mk III with a Sigma Art 50mm / 1.4 lens and the following settings: f / 2.0, 1/1000 sec, ISO 200.
Thanks to both of you, Denise and Heiko, for sharing this fantastic photo with us here in Streetfashion MagZZine.
The first part of the shooting was shot outside a train station transformed into a gigantic mall and restaurant. The session took place in the time from afternoon until evening.
The second part of the shooting took place inside the mall & restaurant. There Alessandro wanted to get a a more sensual and elegant look. He used the same set-up here for camera and lens; the lighting was also provided by a single Speedlite (Canon 430 EXII), but this time in a 90x60cm softbox and with a 1/4 CTO Gel for balance the ambient light (more tungsten-like).
Thanks to both of you, Alessandro and Eleonora for giving us the opportunity to showcase these amazing set her in Streetfashion MagZZine.
For Harry Wilcken this session is a part of his project of street portrait photography, he is working on since summer 2016. The goal of these sessions is to put the models in emblematic / most visited / well-known places of the city and make some portraits. Sometimes Harry works with a Make up artist, but he likes the models to be who they are, wearing their own clothes doing their make up and hair, and posing natural.
Model Lindsey Duinmayer according to Harry is a young, beautiful, funny, extroverted and easy-going person, even she doesn’t like to smile very often. A really good model to work with, nice long legs & sexy look.
Harry is processing almost the same way for each and every model he works with:
As mentioned above, Harry chooses 4 to 6 different locations (close to each other). He tries to use places people visit the most, places full of history and /or with architectural interest. Old and new, no distictions.
For the project Harry uses a Nikon D-810, one prime lens Nikon 85mm 1.8 (back-up camera = Nikon D-300 with a 50mm 1.4 lens) and works with available light plus two off–camera flash units (Nikon) on tripods. As light modifiers he uses 40x40 cm softbox, snoot, grid.
For the post processing Harry tries to avoid editing the images. Lens correction and white balances are mandatory. A small correction to highlights and shadows when necessary. For the rest, he leave the images as they were taken.
As he just yesterday uploaded the photo to Streetfashion MagZZine's facebook group, we immediately asked him to publish it also in the magazine. And here we are to show you another amazing picture of photographer Stephan Pietzka of Visions2You featuring model Laura Luissk.
Stephan told us, that the photo was taken in a small industrial port near Hannover. "Because it was still quite cold on that day, my model Laura and I have agreed on just one outfit in advance. The theme, we had devised, was to present a modern and in the same time casual streetfashion look. And pretty model Laura even solved this task twice: On one hand the chic leather outfit combined with the white sneakers and the timeless woolen cap - a very cool, figurative style, that is always in fashion. This look just fit perfectly to the chosen location and the hard sunlight. The shiny leather outfit gave a great contrast to the strong orange tones of the chain excavator, which served as a background for this shoot. On the other hand - and this is always a decisive factor for a beautiful photo - the model here also brings the subject to a very competent and authentic look. Pose, expression, body tension and the subtle, natural make-up - all were perfectly and very convincingly provided by her" said Stephan.
For the shoot Stephan used a Canon 5D Mark III with EF 2,8 / 70-200 IS USM II lens at an Iso of 400, a focal length of 85 mm with 4.5 aperture and a shutter speed of 1/640 sec.
Big thanks to Stephan for giving us the opportunity to publsih this great photo in Streetfashion MagZZine.
