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: http://vimeo.com/andyfox/makingof-womenshealth-courtneyconlogue

 

 

 


Photo Trip – Italy > Liguria & Tuscany

October 23rd, 2010

A few impressions of a spontaneous photo trip to the coastline of Liguria and Tuscany, Italy a couple of weeks ago when wave charts were looking not too bad:

First night wake up in a tunnel close to the surf break early in the morning

Abandoned 'Bagni' but Michi Mohr chargin' the punchy tuscan righthander

Michi Mohr cuddling the lip

Michi Mohr versus the harbour jetty

Bodyboarder Raffi Hemmer deep in the terraced-style shallow wave spot called 'Hans Klok'

THUNDER! THUNDER! - Michi Mohr before the storm front approaching

Rain drops on your lens can give your photos a dreamy blurry romantic touch;-)

'Love is in the air...' - or...'somewhere over the rainbow'...whatever, it's up to your imagination
