Finally new pictures! I was impatiently waiting for this shooting with Ulrike :-) Though we were thinking about rescheduling our appointment because of the weather, it was raining a little bit last days. But we took the risk and were successful!
It is the second part of the shooting I had with Anu last time. I hope you like the results, feel free to comment!
Last friday I had a shooting with Anu. We have already planned it one year ago but there was always something that cropped up. Anyway, this time we made it!
Last month I had the opportunity to photograph a kyokushin karate trainer, sensei Janusz Konieczko. Some years ago I took lessons with him. The most important thing I have learned during those years of tough trainings is that I always try to go over my limit and I do not give up if I want to achieve something.
I think I’ve chosen the coldest day this winter for our next photoshooting with Gizzy. At least it was icy cold for me. Actually I woke up early that day to be at 10 in the morning for the Venetian dressed people on Colonnaden road. After three hours photographing I was almost freezing to death, couldn’t move my fingers anymore (of course I didn’t have any gloves with me) and headed finally direction central station, where I’ve met Gizzy for going to our shooting location.
Magical masks, fancy dresses, elegance and charm. In January scores of photographers went to the Colonnaden in Hamburg to capture all these creative venetian outfits that were made with much love and passion.
I had my first wedding shooting, wohooo! Admittedly it wasn’t on the wedding day or one day after, but we have repeated everything! The suit, the wedding dress, flowers, the place… it was like a travel through time.
This is the second part of my photoproject I want to present you. This is Olja, a young and very photogenic woman, who shared her ideas about the shooting with me and we both tried to realize them all. This might sound ridiculous but I live in Hamburg for so many years now, have been near this shooting location for so many times and haven’t seen it, because I didn’t know that you’re allowed to go inside the backyard. Silly me, but I always say that’s it’s better late than never.
With these photos of Natalia and Frederik I will start posting about my project. I have to admit that this day was full of running, laughing and almost crying, for different reasons!
Last time I was more often thinking about my photography and I felt the need for a change. Nothing was really happening through the last few months and I was trying to change it, but didn’t know how. I thought to myself “if I won’t find anybody who is really interested in my photography and who indeed does show as much engagement in our shooting as I do, I will give it all up”.
This is the second part of the great photoshooting with Natalia I had last Monday. I’m still very satisfied with all of them, Natalia did a superb job! I’m looking forward to our future collaboration!
Last monday I spontaneously asked my friends for a photoshooting. Luckily I got some replies and the first person who answered was Natalia. Because of the great autumn weather I got an idea to make a session which suits to this season. So I suggested Natalia to waer warm-colored clothes, like brown or cream, and the motives I wished to capture were like jumping or laying in leafs, holding an apple or something like that. We both fulfilled more than expected!
Here are the next pictures from Fischmarkt, in Hamburg. Sunday morning. Additionally there was Hafengeburtstag, the birthday of our harbour. For this occasion there were many ships from all over the World like Queen Mary2 and other cruise liners like AIDA. Many shows, fireworks and stalls with food and drinks. In general it was a huge and nice party.
Every sunday is the same ritual. People after partying the day before go in the early morning to the very known fish market in Hamburg at Landungsbrücken, enjoying fresh, smoked fish in rolls or hot coffee from the Jamaican coffee-master or some live music in the Fischauktionshalle.
These days are very chaotic, full of stress, lack of time not only for pleasure, friends but even for ourselves. We are running at full tilt every day, having no second to take a breather. We’re forgetting what’s most important in our lifes, choosing wrong priorities and unconsciously loosing something great we were waiting many years for. But what is the most significant thing to you?
I’m gonna tell you a short story. A story of two people who have lost everything.
Night of Churches. In St. Michaelis you could go to the crypt that night. Everything what I have imagined and hoped for was a big dark stone chamber illuminated with candles, smoke of some incenses, and quite church music, even with Gregorian chant. I’ve expected secret corridors that would be opened just for that one night. Mysterious paths, many coffins. Small extra rooms with unreleased books and parchments hidden under heavy flags wobbling under your feet.
On that one Saturday evening and night took place the yearly Night of Churches in Hamburg, so I decided to take a look how it all was looking like and was organized. A new experience I have made was going alone at the St. Jacobi’s church tower at a height of more than 80m. But the more breathtaking thing than the great view at a big part of Hamburg was… the short trip with the old elevator.
On Saturday the 15th of September took place the yearly “Night of Churches” here in Hamburg. These are picture made on the way to some churches, like St. Jacobi from the 13th century, the small, Lutheran-Protestant church St. Thomas, or the 132m high St. Michaelis, also known as Michel. But for those ones I will make another post, because there are too many pictures. Also comming soon a blog post with some photographs from Horizon Field in Deichtorhallen, which I also visited on that Saturday.
