Recent shots from Amsterdam photographer and friend Daniel Wolters.
I used to do a lot of landscape/nature photography on my blog until about six months ago when I decided to step my game up and started shooting with some friends and family.
This escalated quite quickly. Festivals, concerts, lookbooks for clothing brands, etc. Nowadays, I shoot for magazines, websites/blogs and also for a wide variety of clients like record labels, kids foundations and I just got home from a shoot at veterinary practice, with cows, horses and dogs.
I use my Instagram profile (@DanielWolters) as a portfolio until I have time to build myself a website. A couple of weeks ago Phiola followed me and I checked out her profile. I noticed she had this weird bone structure. Weird in a good way. One of a kind. Beautiful. So I followed her back and before I got the chance to ask her if she wanted to shoot with me, she asked me.
She turned out to live a couple of streets from where I live, so we hooked up and met downtown. We clicked pretty good, which is important for me to really get the most out of a shoot; a good vibe. She didn’t have a lot of experience modeling, but it went down quite naturally. No matter where I put her, she posed like a pro; against a wall, on a crowded square, even on top of a parking garage. The shoot took a like an hour and before we went home we agreed that we had to do it again some time. So we did, about three weeks ago.
Check out the result on my Instagram!
Whoooop, Thanks Chaz!
