A while ago, I collaborated with Ella De Vos, a young textile designer from Antwerp. Her friend Nathalie joined us early on a Sunday morning and together we went to the left bank of Antwerp to brave the cold and shoot her delicate designs, consisting of intricately knit scarves and sweaters. Later we warmed ourselves in the apartment of a friend, before shooting again on his rooftop and on his terrace, with the central station and the city of Antwerp as a backdrop.
This shoot was a bit of an experiment for all three of us, I had never worked with a model before, Nathalie had no real modeling experience and Ella never worked with a photographer before either. On top of that, I shot these photos on film, making it extra hard to judge whether or not we were doing a good job. In the end, it all worked out just fine. The weather was absolutely amazing that day and even though it was extremely cold so early in the morning, the light around sunrise was absolutely breathtaking. I’m very pleased with the result and the fun day we had, so I’m excited to do this more often in the future! Therefore I’ve created a portfolio for my photography, where you can find more of my work. If you’re interested to collaborate, you can find my contact details there.
Ella De Vos’ collection is sold under the name Madame Seguin, more info and selling points here.
