ZOR.com Test – Wall Panel

Zor-Ex Film Noir

A few days ago, I got an e-mail from Jonathan of ZOR.com. He asked me if I am interested in a free wall panel in exchange for an posting about their product on my blog. I accepted and got a 45×30 cm forex print for free but I had to pay for shipping. For the test, I choose a film noir picture we made a few months ago. I like it and so why not putting a print of itRead More

Tag der Bundeswehr 2017 at Penzing Air Base

Since 2015, the German Armed Forces organize an annual open day called “Tag der Bundeswehr”. The forces open their doors for the public at several sites all over Germany. This year, one of the sites was Penzing airbase, home of Air Transport Wing 61 (Lufttransportgeschwader 61, LTG 61). The wing is equipped with the Transall tactical transport aircraft. It was also the last year of the LTG 61 as the wing is going to be disbanded at years end. GermanyRead More

Break at the River

Break at the River

Lili had a break at the river Lech on their way back to Prague. She relaxed on the waterside and enjoyed the sun. Birds were circleing above her and ducks paddled through the water. It was a lonely place and the landscape remembered her to Canada or Alaska. Just a salmon fishing brown bear was missing to make the illusion of the wild north perfect. A fresh breeze gave her goose pimples and it could have been a little warmer.Read More

The Gentlewoman from the Slaughterhouse

Nice ladies, smart guns and cool hats are typical elements of Film Noir. In the classic period of Film Noir (1941-1958), movie critics mocked of these low-budget B movies. Important movies of this period were, for example, The Maltese Falcon (1941), Double Indemnity (1944) or D.O.A. (Dead On Arrival, 1950). However, in the meanwhile Film Noir became a major style in movie making. Neo Noir brought us great movies like Taxi Driver (1976),  Blade Runner (1982), Pulp Fiction (1994), KillRead More

Sensual On Location

I was still in Saigon when I read that Martin Krolop announced another workshop in Munich. As one must be fast to get a reservation in one of his workshops, I booked it right from the hotel room. And what shoud I say, as usual for Martin’s workshops it was worth booking it. Martin organized a very cool loft in Munich as shooting location and Jessi as workshop model. The loft is usually a show room and not a photoRead More

Roads of Vietnam

Roads of Vietnam

Roads in Vietnam are very strange if you come from a western country and have never been in South-East-Asia before. Thousands of scooters and motorbikes thrust their way through the streets and at busy times also through the walkways. It is loud and the air smells of twin-stroke engines. Waiting for a gap to cross a street is almost hopeless. But if you have the courage to walk straight through the traffic, you will imagine the traffic flowing around youRead More

Fashion Shooting with Gina

We did some autumn fashion shoots, today. Gina digged the perfect OOTD for this shooting out of her wardrobe. I especially like the texture of her pullover or poncho or whatever it is (I don’t know how it is called) and that black hat. Good light, cool clothes, and a really not so bad (notice the understatement) model resulted in very great photos. But have a look on them by your self…   ” order_by=”sortorder” order_direction=”ASC” returns=”included” maximum_entity_count=”500″]
