Photo Blast from the Past - Atlantic City

Hey fellas, in case you were wondering... no, I'm not on vacation again, well, not yet! Today's post is a throwback - a photo blast from the past so to say. Since I didn't have the chance yet to shoot some new pics for you, I decided to check on pics I prepared for my blog but didn't post yet. So today you get to see some snapshots of my trip to Atlantic City in New Jersey in April 2013. At the beginning of 2013 I went back to NYC for a couple weeks and my friends and I decided to spend a weekend in Atlantic City, the East Coast's Las Vegas.
We had such a fantastic time in Jersey, we tried our best gambling and even won two dollars, haha! The city was pretty quiet since we visited off season and just a couple months after hurricane Sandy destroyed some parts of the East Coast. So we pretty much had the hotels for ourselves as well as the casinos.  I felt like I was in a huge amusement park, most of the buildings look so fake :-D
If you ever get to check out Atlantic City, make sure to stop by the Trump Taj Mahal. The fab hotel Revel and its night club HQ, where we took the casino and outdoor pool pics, are unfortunately closed by now. Anyway, hope you like the pics ;-)

Model Crush - Bianca Balti

Hello my lovely readers, did you all have a great week so far?
Mine has been pretty much studying, studying, studying... I'm in the middle of my exams by now and all I wanna do is escape to some exotic island!

Since I don't have much time lately to go out and shoot some outfit pics for you today's post is gonna be an inspiration post.
So here we go, it's model crush time - check out the Italian beauty Bianca Balti. This lady is one of my favorite models, not just because she lives in New York City but she's got such a fantastic style, looks absolutely stunning and she's got that exotic look I really love. She was born in Italy in 1984 and since then has worked for Dolce & Gabanna, Victoria's Secret and many more fabulous designers. Enjoy the pics and feel free to check out my other model crush posts here :-)

Shooting Time

Hello there, everyone! How was your week so far? I just got back to university, one week left before my exams start, ugh! In case you've missed it, I'm studying multimedia production which is a mix of everything that has to do with media. The good thing about it is that I learn a little bit of everything - I have marketing classes, IT, audio and video production, media economy and 3D animation, plus I'm taking Spanish classes as well to improve my grammar. Thanks to my love I learned Spanish really quickly and after a year I now speak it fluently, woohoo.

So what's this post all about? Nope, it's not about school but it has to do with something I really love - photography or better said photo shootings.
In November I had a fabulous shoot with Alex Kock who owns the Studio 23 in Kiel. Alex is a very talented, fun and super relaxed guy who took these cool shots of me. Since we wanted to take some extreme make up shots, we teamed up with a wonderful young lady called Franzi who's great at creating some extraordinary looks (go follow her on instagram - @franzi_mnr - for more beauty tips and make up styles).
We had such a blast together starting with a casual outfit, some extreme make up head shots and shooting a little more elegant look with red lips. You guys don't only get to see the outcome but I also added some backstage pics for you, so you get an impression of what's it's like to be part of a studio shooting. How do you like the outcome? ;-)

PS: Thank you so much to the great photographer and the amazing make up artist, it was a pleasure to work with you!
