2 Weeks ago I had the opportunity to photograph one of my favorite dutch rap group, The Opposites. They release their new album this week, called Slapeloze Nachten (Spotify: http://open.spotify.com/album/1HFoz1ACfQuTwhV9xwRAgL ).
After they released their new single, “Sukkel voor de liefde”, they also released their videoclip for it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnNU-EwYjaQ I really liked this musicvideo, because of the atmosphere and vibe of it. Inspired by the video, I came up with this shoot.
The images are used for 2 interviews on State Magazine http://www.statemagazine.nl/. One with Twan van Steenhoven (Big2) and the other one with Willem de Bruijn (Willy), the 2 members of The Opposites.http://www.statemagazine.nl/artikel/232

A few weeks ago I had a meeting with the guys of Dirtcaps. We talked about a photoshoot for their new pressphoto. They had some ideas about it and wanted to try something with fire in the pictures. Obviously a cool idea! A few days before the meeting I was inspired by Benjamin Von Wong his fire photography. Check it here. I wanted to use these techniques to make some awesome and unique portraits. And so we did!
Here are the results:
Equipment used: Canon 1DX, Canon 70-200 2.8 II, Elinchrom Ranger RX speed, Canon 600EX.
