About MeThanks to ModelMayhem I have already had many memorable moments with many fun and interesting people from all over the world. Each model has a personality, a look, a way of living, a way of posing and some stories to tell and share.
I am an amateur photographer - with more than 50 shoots since 2013 - who uses a very simple method of photographing by using daylight, simple setting and the focus on the model. Plus " what you see is what you get ", our society has very high expectations when it comes to defining " beauty ", almost every picture of a model is not a reflection of reality, because of all them were edited and photoshopped.
Many years ago I saw magazine the photos and the words of Jo Schwab (German photographer), his words about his objective by a picture: if a viewer looks at your picture for about 20 seconds, then you succeeded to make a picture which can hold the attention and the curiosity.
Some models here on ModelMayhem are very fortunate that they can travel all over the world for shooting, this give them the opportunities to see new places, discover themselves, learn good and bad people on their way, get (new) insights and make some amazing memories,
During the shoots it matters to me you can be yourself, you feel comfortable and there is time for some smiles, some positive vibes and sharing some stories as well.
One of my passions are:
- meeting new and interesting people
- travelling (visited 28 countries so far, last trips were Brazil, Cuba, Jordan, Egypt, India)
- learning languages (able to speak 7-8, at the moment learning Portuguese and Turkish)
What can I offer besides a paid shoot to the models:
- a black swan mindset in a world full of white swans
- amazing travelling stories
- passionate, positive viber with sense of humour
- thinker and doer of outside of the box
- a sporty, inked, well educated and living goal digger
- in my professional life I empower people by inspiring them, helping them, coach, listen and help them to deploy their talents, we all live one life and the time passes for every one at the same speed
