Vintage Ventures the adventures of a vintage soul…
This was my first full-scale vintage photography project. IÂ wanted to capture a visual language that melded the vintage feel of art nouveau with the more modern concept of photography. During the days before the shoot I looked over a few portraits of Marilyn Monroe. Perhaps this was an influence, too.Â I love the feel and look old films and old paintings as well as modern art.Â I think the shoot was a mix of that and the fact every time you open your eyes youâ€™ve got a new situation which can inspire you, in its own way.Â I think you have to build up a connection with the model and create a special atmosphere between you and the model. Â It helps a lot when the model is able to forget sheâ€™s on a photoshoot and can relax.

It was quite cool experience cause Iâ€™ve never done nothing like this before in such a big way.Â
So take the time out and enjoy â€œVintage Venturesâ€.
