Making-Of WOMEN’S HEALTH Photo Shoot, Hossegor, France, 06/2012

June 8th, 2012

Assigned by Women’s Health magazine I was traveling with Joseph, my photo assistant, to the pristine beaches of Hossegor and Seignosse. The mission: a lifestyle-/fashion photo shoot with up & coming Cali pro surfer Courtney Conlogue who won the SWATCH Girls Pro contest just the day before!

The day began with checking out the beach locations. In the afternoon hours we were starting with the 15 workout exercises Courtney usually does at home or when traveling. Behind a small beach hut we taped our white background for the cover-try shoot.

We spiced up the layed-back beach-style settings with some action boosted jumps from the rocks.

Finalizing the locations with my number one place to be: the ocean

Thanks a lot to the well tuned-in team, in particular my assistant Joseph, sports editor Martina, fashion editor Jessica, makeup artist Julia, SWATCH PR ladies Nicole and Nina.

And last-but-not-least Chris Nemes, who was covering a great making-of video:

Overall we’ve been happy receiving the permission to shoot in this outrageous, organic-like architecture. Here come some making-of shots:

Photo Shoot with Danish Apnoe divers, Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, 07/2011

August 6th, 2011

While on photo production with German Apnoe diver Anna von Boetticher for several German magazines I met up with the “Danish Dynamite” Apnoe team: Jakob, Rune, Carsten, Kristian.

All of them managed to break their personal bests. After their record attempts we played around in the pristine, crystal clear waters of the Red Sea in front of the Only One Apnea Center

Eventually we were icing the day up with an excessive party. Our feet were scrubbing the sand to some good old-school beats.

You can find all of the images in full scale in my “Sports & Motion” – section either.

Photo Shoot with Apnoe diver Anna von Boetticher, Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, 07/2011

July 10th, 2011

I am really overwhelmed getting the chance diving into the freediving scene.

Marco, the chief of Only One Apnea Center in Sharm El-Sheikh/Egypt and Andrea Zuccari, the Swiss Apnoe champion were teaching me – literally – some breath-taking techniques from which I never heard before.

I can only highly recommend the Only One Apnea Center to anybody who’s interested in learning the proper free diving techniques. And of course for those ones wanting to get rid of  their old-fashioned, faulty, ugly style – like me;-)

We found perfect locations all over the hotel resort as we are almost alone to ourselves. Not to mention the underwater reef scenery and crystal clear water quality accompanied by a huge fish variety.

Next week I’ll be covering Anna’s world record attempt of 130m.

There will be underwater, lifestyle and portrait images as well as settings with her tandem partner Andrea Zuccari with whom she gained the tandem world record a couple of weeks ago. The clients are german and international lifestyle, economy and sport magazines.

Here come some first impressions, making-of’s etc:

Skate – Photoshoot Flori Kummer ‘Punkskate Pixie’

Flori and his self-made approach

Lifestyle – Photoshoot Dominik Metner ‘Bike Brides’

September 9th, 2009

Born as a 68er kid and inspired by watching countless trashy b-movies I was encouraged setting up a special outdoor photo shoot. I matched up the young mountain bike semi-pro Dominik with some girls touting for him in his own-built bike park.

The models Steffi and Moni were bravely tottering with their shiny high heels in the dust and dirt of the race track.

When dusk dove in, we parked an old, rotten wrecked pickup truck to establish the stranded girls couple looking for gasoline in the dense forest.

Underwater – Photoshoot Heidi Wolfmeier ‘Cynara’

August 28th, 2009

Underwater photo shooting with artist Heidi at the pristine Fuschlsee, Austria:

I was seeking quite desperately places and locations for crystal clear water at the Salzburger and upper-austrian lake region since quite a long time.

Locals’ mouths were sealed…not too awkward as I know this from surfing (which is alright to protect the beauty) and so I had to ‚discover’ the banks and water quality of the lakes all by myself. Words of some friends told that I should try this or that lake but finally we got stuck at Fuschlsee. On first sight the water looked pretty clear and the underwater visibilty should be alright. After renting a little red oldschool vintage electro boat at Fuschlsee which reminded me of those 60ies films with a lot of cheesy dialogues where couples were floating out to the lake to spend some romantic hours….we started off to our location check by sea.

'Frogman' and 'Sissy'

We found some pristine, clear banks with stunning rotten roots and climbers at this famous lake close to Salzburg. Unfortunately the underwater scenery was hidden by murky slimey underground which was whirled up every time we touched the ground.

Underwater model Heidi threw herself in a green showy dress. Some funny accessoires spiced up the artistic situation: an artichoke flower! which contrasted perfectly to the outfit and greenish underwater scenery. Our ‘Cynara’ under water photo project was born.

Mountainbike – Photoshoot Dominik Metner ‘Bike Maniac’

August 17th, 2009

Photo shooting with semi-professional mountain biker Dominik Metner at his own-built wood race park in his backyard in Bavaria, Germany:

Before we were ready to setup our light equipment in the rugged  bike park at Dominiks backyard time has come to sway our axes. Tables and abstacles were pretty much sprawled and we had to free them.

Lucky me when everyone was ready for action that my brother Jo Blankenburg ( was filming the entire ‚making-of’ of the bike jump and portrait photo shooting with his HD camera.

Please find the videoclip at my vimeo-channel:…..

We were checking out different obstacles and kickers and we shot at several locations at Dominiks bike park at day and night times. Dominik decided to go for the BIG one: a wood kicker throning 5m high above and a 45-degree-landing ramp. Dominik threw himself in his new gear and we took some portrait shots before Dominik gapped the big kicker.

One evening we carried this night mud slide action and thanks to BOWENS producing such reliable light equipment as the ankle-deep mud and filth was spilled all over the place. White softboxes were dunked into ‚Cafe-Latte’ color. It’s been worth every single mud pearl!
