sabrina, a good friend, approached me a few months ago, asking for some photos, “my grandkids will find many years from now in the attic and think, ‘wow, our granny was hot!’”
we met up last weekend in the studio and here are some of the results.
warning: this post contains concealed nudity! (more…)
eva needed some pictures of herself in different situations for one of her final seminars. so we took a sunday afternoon early last april and bumbled around innsbruck to find some pictures.
all of these pictures are supposed to represent some form of psychotherapeutic principle. i’m not 100% sure what they all mean, so i’m just leaving them with the titles eva gave them
more after the break… (more…)
i was playing around with some lighting setups and eva got to model again. i was trying to recreate the sort of look that zack arias wrote about in this tutorial: White Seamless Tutorial.
i basically just put a flash behind eva, blasting at the white wall and a flash in a reflective umbrella in front. so not quite zack’s setup, but the closest i could approximate in our living room. i didn’t quite get the lighting ratios right, so i had to add a touch of fill slider in lightroom, next time i’ll know better… but see for yourself:
as you can see on some pics, i had banding/sync issues with the cactus triggers. i’m going to have to see if that can be corrected.
Benni invited us round to his place last night to celebrate him turning older than he’s ever been before. here’s some pictures of the evening:
Benni turns 23. :)
alternatively, here’s a flash gallery:
quick update: eva and i have moved and are more or less finished with the move. flo & ursi came for dinner last night and brought some flowers with them. i love the way the colours just pop against the black background of our *massive* windows.
more tulip pictures on my flickr page.
life’s been seriously busy around here for the past month or so. busy means lots of work and private stuff happening all over the place, but it also means that quite a bit of photography has been happening. i haven’t had the chance to blog about any of it, so it’s now time to flush the backlog a bit to make some more space for other projects still in the backlog.
well, the last photo blog-post was from the landesfestumzug. since then, i’ve had the chance to photograph some tame wildlife, sports action, concerts, candids and some sailing.
IFI staff day, 24/09/2009
we had an IFI staff day towards the end of september. it was an organized trip with an action-packed morning, good lunch, followed by a lazy afternoon with huskies and birds of prey and a bbq to round it all off. here are some pictures:
Fun and games and lots of adrenalin at the high-rope course in Kramsach.
Relaxing afternoon with huskies.
Impressive demonstration of owls and eagls.

surprise class regatta, YKA; 26-27/09/2009
the YKA hosted a surprise class regatta at the end of september. i sailed with andi on graffiti again (the same skipper i sailed with on the lago di garda at the end of august). we won the regatta, which put andi in the overall winning spot for the austrian class association.
saturday was windy-ish, on sunday we spent most of the day hanging around waiting for wind. when it did turn up, it was flukey and turned and died down just before the only race for the day was about to be started. gave me a chance to get some pictures while out on the water though:

Weltfest at the Treibhaus, 02/10/2009
emir, a good friend and great percussionist, volunteers at the integrationsbüro here in innsbruck. they organize a large “world festival” every year; this year, emir asked me to join the photography team of 4 photographers to photo-document the event. we basically spent the evening enjoying the festival and taking bucketloads of pictures. i really enjoyed the evening, and hope to be invited back again next year. here are all the pictures:
a separate post will follow soon with the pick of my favourites and a bit on equipment and workflow.
hintersee, nr mittersill; 14/08/2009
this one’s been on the backburner now for a long while. when eva and i were tripping back and forth between tyrol and salzburg for two weeks this summer, we also detoured to one of my most favourite locations in the mountains – the hintersee near mittersill. this is a tiny little mountain lake created by an earthquake 800 years or so ago and a fantastically picturesque location. there are some very nice landscape pictures and a couple of quirky ones of eva here:
