The third photoshoot of 2014!
HUGE thanks to Eric Hirdes whom openned the doors of his gorgeous painting atelier once again for us to make this story happen. The first time I stepped into it, was around my graduation period last year and I was so stunned by how perfectly daylight had it's reflection on all the tiny paint drops of his dark wooden floors; I knew then this place had huge photogenic potential.
So the whole idea was to make the gorgeous Roel look like the artist and atelier owner. A young succesful painter who is portrayed within his artistic bubble posing for the lens at different stages of his day, carreer or however you'd like to see it.
Roel was all over the runways last Men's Fashion Week including Burberry and Valentino in between other heavy names! so we were very proud of having the opportunity to shoot with him.
Here below, "Lock Up" by BC Kingdom and a picture of spanish hyperrealistic painter Eloy Morales....YES, this is a photograph of a painting! not only is he bomb-diggity-handsome, but the photographic quality of his self-portrait paintings are trully stunning.
