Shoot w/Mindy #tbt

So in the spirit of #throwbackthursday #tbt here is an old shoot i did back in the day in Amsterdam. revamped (i threw another edit over it and put it together in this little layout - some of these images have never been published before. do enjoy! )

Shooting with former university classmate Mindy Au, it was spontaneous, it was quick but it was pretty fun! =)  So.. where did the inspiration come from? It began when my Finnish friend Jussi , went to Japan for a DJ gig and he asked me what I wanted from Japan, well of course... a KIMONO! I love Kimono's =) and i always wanted to do some kind of geisha oriented shoot. unfortunately, all i had qua styling was this kimono and this shoot was super last minute but it seemed to workout okay in the end.


I was a little too nervous back in the day to shoot with just any model. So i asked my friend and former classmate Mindy who had the perfect look for it.. to pose for me. =) she accepted gladly and ended up booking an actual shoot with me months later =)
