I had a short “getting to know each other” shoot with Janin recently. I really like doing these tests when I am looking for new models for my non-commissioned work. For me it’s not about having the perfect model with the perfect pose and the perfect body but much more so that the chemistry is right between us. I pour my heart into my non-commissioned work, which is why it is so important to me that we have a team that is on the same wavelength. A test shoot like this is a great way to see how things work out between the model and the photographer.

They’re usually relatively simple ordeals. No elaborate styling and a simple light setup because it’s not about getting the perfect results. But hey, take a look at these pictures of Janin. I’d like to see how it turns out when we go full out.
