Dirtcaps Promo Shoot on Location

Last week we had Max, Danny and Tim a.k.a. the Dirtcaps on location to shoot the latest set of promo images for their upcoming tour in America. Holland's most unique DJ/MC trio brought all that energy that you see on stage to the shoot and we got some great shots. We were shooting near Haarlem in an old sugar factory, that made an absolutely amazing location giving atmosphere and drama to every shot. With our smokemachine running full power we boosted the drama even more. Unfortunately, we can't say that we didn't set off the smoke alarm a few times throughout the day! But it was totally worth it.

The styling was provided by Josje from Showpony productions for that!

Check out the behind the scenes here!

This was the last shot of the day. The sun came around to the perfect spot and the all the smoke diffused the light just perfectly.

Dirtcaps – Jagermeister shoot – Fire photography

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:

20 second portraits

Sometimes you have to make some ultra quick portraits. Last week was one of those jobs. Vodafone asked me to photograph their Vodafone Firestarters session at the Amsterdam Dance Event. Firestarters is a traveling talkshow that wants to innovate, inspirate and discuss several topics in a creative context.  Before the sessions started I had to make the portraits of every host and guest of the event.  Everybody was in a hurry or late, so I just had to do my best to get it right in a minimum amount of time.


For the photogeeks:

I used a Canon 5d Mark III camera with a Canon 85mm 1.8 lens. The light was an Elinchrom Quadra in a photodiox Octabox with grid.

Here are the shots.
