Rain Rain Go Away! And some ARMADA stuff!
Rain rain go away… come again another day (when I’m not here!).
I had a very nice shoot planned today with a Dutch photographer in a sand dune to make some pretty pictures for my members section. Unfortunately it had to be cancelled as the weather is just terrible :(. Good weather for the ducks, as they say. So instead, i’ll do some blogging and share some recent images.
The image across is actually a back stage image. It was taken at a shoot a few weeks ago in Belgium when I was trying to get heated up by a radiator by in window in between shots. I think it works well with the rain theme (OK it wasn’t raining during the shoot, but it could have been :P).

I told you I was shooting a music video for Armada? Well I can tell some more details now.
The artists were Christian Burns who is a signer (and has featured with the likes of Tiesto and Armin van Buuren) and the song was Bullet. German DJ Christian Dubruck also played a cameo role in it. The location was a studio in Amsterdam and also a wellness center on the outskirts of Amsterdam. We had to shoot here when there were no customers, hence why the shoot happened during the night.
Below is a beautiful back stage image that was taken in the luxurious wellness center, I think it ties in nicely with the subject of water and rain! I had to wait 4 hours until it was my time to film, It was soooo difficult not to go and jump into the jacuzzi! I would have, but I had hair extensions in and they would have ruined.
And above is taken from a screen shot. The shoot was very experimental, and used all sorts of cool projection techniques….. above you can see how an image taken of me in a studio has been projected onto a wall. And in other shots different words and graphics were projected onto my body. The minute the video is released I shall post a link to it.
(both images above are taken from the Christian Burns OFFICIAL facebook page).
Also, remember the lovely feature in OB-Sessions magazine I had recently with Andre Brito? Well, a Scottish artist by the name of Drew Ferrie has made a wonderful HB sketch of one of the images. I actually came across the image on Google (I guess Drew didn’t have my contact details), so that was a nice surprise :)!
And here is the sketch:
