Fashion photo shoot for Astrid Elisee
This was one of my favorite fashion photo shoots of the past year. We worked with a small team and had clear vision of what we wanted to achieve with the photo’s. Astrid Elisee is a Dutch fashion label using primarily silk to create a collection of key essentials that are timeless, easy to wear, everyday and effortlessly chic.
Astrid had a clear vision of what she wanted to achieve with her new campaign to promote the jumpsuit in the collection. The idea was to follow a modern day woman throughout the day and place her in everyday situations.
We rented the suite at The College Hotel in Amsterdam and were allowed to use most of the public area’s throughout the day. This gave us all the options we needed for the shoot. Around 9 o’clock in the morgen we started and finished around 7 in the evening so we were able to capture the different moments we needed with the correct natural light coming into the rooms. During the shoot I was also able to take some photo’s for my own portfolio which was a nice addition to an already good day.
The model Florencia Mulder who was Miss Nederland in 2006 did a fantastic job. She was able to pull off all the different looks with ease, it was really nice to work with her. Carla Rep was in charge make-up and hair, she was also a very good help during the shoot helping to spot things that would make the end result better. I am currently planing to do a new photo shoot together with Carla as we have similar interests in what we want in our portfolio’s.
I used a Nikon d700 and most of the photo’s were taken with the Nikon 24-70mm f2.8 lens and the Nikon 50mm f1.8. Further I used a SB900 and a SB800 speedlight with small softbox.
