Nine models, two make-up artists, three intensive days in the facilities of Yellow Cock Studio has produced a lot of pictures. I have learned a lot, the models are guaranteed to have done weird things. This is a little collection of photos that were taken during the model testing for Modelbureauet Modelbooking. Sunday is my last day of testing here in Denmark before I go back to Norway to celebrate Christmas Holiday.
Here are two portraits, one of Augustine Tino Asenjo and one of Mehdi Hassan. The portraits are taken in conjunction with model testing for Trend Models and is made of Dora in Trondheim.
Tomorrow I have two male fashion photo shoots, this time for Modelbureauet Modelbooking. The test will take place in the studios of Yellow Cock Studio and stylist is Anja Aarestrup Lund from the agency. I am looking forward to work inside a studio again, it has been a while.
Rasmus Michelsen, model testing for Modelbureauet Modelbooking in Århus. Clothes and manbag are supplied by [ei`kon]. The color of the wall behind the model gives the full image a warm and nice touch in contrast to his blue eyes and jeans. The style is a bit lumberjack meets hipster. Enjoy the rest of the photos I’ve shoot of Rasmus as well.
Here are two pictures from the test shots I did of Rasmus Michelsen from Modelbureauet ModelBooking in Aarhus. The pictures are taken in the old town on a fairly busy street corner. The sun was going down and our lights were about to disappear, but I managed to get some pictures of the last outfit we had planned. Suppliers of clothes for this male fashion photo shoot was the clothing store [ei`con] situated right next to the cathedral in Århus. If you are in town, check out their store.
Third part of model testing with my Rasmus Michelsen Aarhus. Rasmus is represented by model agency Modelbureauet ModelBooking. Clothing and styling was done at [ei´kon], a fashion store for both men and women. Anonymous, black jeans, a white t-shirt, blazer, black, high boots and a murse is what gives this model a rocky touch.
What is a murse? Well, I just learned that that was the slang for male bags or purses. It is supposed to be a masculine way to carry around papers, laptops and other electronic devices, you’ll be the judge of that. A murse is also refereed to as a male nurse, fag bag or a man-bag.
The location of this shoot was over and under the bridge down town Århus, Åboulevarden and Skt. Clemens Bro. On the first picture where Rasmus is walking across the bridge, the light hit the surrounding building and helped out lighting the scene. The second and third picture is more film noir feel more than the classical commercial fashion. The second picture is shot on the walkway right beneath the first picture, and the third is shot in the staircase right next to Restaurant & Cocktail Bar Copenhagen. This part of the series should in theory give a little more sense of motion rather than the two previous sections.
Testing with Rasmus Michelsen from Modelbureauet Modelbooking, this is the second part of the series I did with him. Still in down town Århus doing male fashion with clothes from [ei'kon]. For these shots I mainly used a Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 lense for the open shots and a wide-angle 35mm f/2.0 for the ones by the wall.
All pictures are natural lit by a soft cloud cover that lay across Århus. This particular light gives the images a soft contrast that I like very much.
Rasmus Michelsen is represented by model agency Modelbureauet Model Booking, located in Århus . Rasmus has worked as a model for several years with a small short stay. We borrowed clothes from Ei’kon, a clothing store in Århus which we also used as a base, and worked on location in the area around the cathedral, for they who are known. We were lucky with the weather, light breeze with a heavy layer of clouds. The day before it was pouring down and windy.
On this particular shot I worked mainly with the 35mm f/2.0 and 50mm f/1.4, Nikon, throughout the entire photo shoot, sometimes with the help of a small reflector and then.
Three pictures of Kofi Gyimah from the fashion series I started photographing last Sunday. One of my first male fashion photos I have shot. The series is shot in studio using mainly two light sources, one octabank and one square reflector with a grid.
A weekend I was working for Hipster.no at Kos Bar & Lounge I bumped into Kofi Gyimah and his friend. I took their picture and got to have a chat with Kofi afterwards. He was asking me if I did other pictures too and I said I studied at Norsk Fotofagskole. He asked me to take his portrait and wanted to try out modeling. Since I haven’t shot that many male models before I said yes and tonight I shot a series of him with clothes from Retro and his boxing-gear.
This picture was one of the last from tonights shoot. Hope you enjoy!
Last week I were in Oslo photographing a magazine portrait for my assignment at Norsk Fotofagskole of Truls Svendsen known in Norway for his early days as a stunt reporter for Senkveld with Thomas and Harald and “Svendsen om Hansen og Jensen” at TV2, the enlightenment show “Kroppen”, “E6″ at NRK. Hosting Gullfisken, a commercial award he is best know for his dance stunt shaking his booty to Beyoncé’s Single Ladies. Another famous stunt he did during Senkveld was drinking a bit too much Martini at a James Bond-premiere. Videos can be watched in the end of this post.
So what was my ideas and thoughts behind my portrait-series of this crazy, fun celebrity? Since he is best know for his stunts and human shows I wanted to portrait Truls as more serious guy and not letting him play the comedian-role and take the easy way out dressing him up in a black body or giving him Dry Martini. Some of the inspiration for my photos is directly from male fashion and Anton Corbijns series of Magnus Carlsen (The Chess player) for G-Star Raw using the urban environment at Grünerløkka as a clean backdrop.
The first portrait I took was up in Thorvald Meyers-gate in a backyard close to Seven-Eleven and the second portrait was taken at Internasjonalen.
