I met up with a bunch of like minded people in La Graciosa, Canary Islands in November. Inspirational souls, beautiful people, storytellers, life lovers. As a photographer, you need a certain talent to connect with people, and above all, let your clients connect with each other. Even with people who are madly in love, that ‘connection’ thing is not always easy. They don’t know how to act in front of the camera, they feel awkward, and clients often tell me they think of themselves they are ‘not photogenic’.
The truth is, you don’t need to be beautiful or photogenic to have mind-blowing pictures. You just need to show the world you love each other. Isn’t that a simple thing?
Meet Hallie and Gaia. Hallie, crazy American, living in Michigan. Gaia, a true inspirational young woman, from Slovenia, currently living in Berlin. The truth is, they know each other only for 5 days. They are not a couple. haha. But I am sure, if I didn’t tell you this little secret, you all would think these stunning girls are MADLY in love with each other. We just had a early morning crazy shoot, when the town was slowly waking up, and they just showed us how to connect with each other.
If these girls can do it, I’m sure real couples can do it even better!
Whisper, touch, and love each other!
PS after spending a week together, we all loved each other. So yes, I call it a love shoot. Thanks girls, it was a true blessing to have you in front of my lens!
