Last Sunday, about 500 amateur and professional photographers and models came to Nuremberg to take part in the #stegerwalk, one of the biggest meetings of this kind. Walking, taking, shooting, networking – the entire day was dedicated to the only one idea: to bring all the people on both sides of the camera together.
Last Saturday with Alina. When we met in the city she was already waiting for me sitting on the bench by the entrance to the underground station and writing something on her mobile. In the first moment, I didn’t recognize her because her styling was so completely different than the one I knew from her profile page. We had some good chats before and much more contact than usual and I was really excited about what kind of person she is.
The Bürgermeistergarten (Mayor’s Garden) is a wonderful and calm place on Nuremberg’s west town wall that you never find if you don’t explicitly look for it :).
You can go there for a walk or take one of the benches, sit or lay down and read a book or just relax and enjoy the sheltering distance form the din of the city. Well, it’s not absolutely quiet, you can still hear the cars driving down on the streets but it gives you a save distance and an oasis of green.
Sabine… What is your first thought when you meet a person for the first time? Don’ t try to answer :-). Seeing Sabine for the first time, you forget all those things you usually thing of and you have to smile because she smiles and her smile is just… overwhelming and so cute that you cannot resist :-). Oh yeah! And she’s a dancer! And still moving.
Nellie and me we know each other since some years and we’ve talked about lots of things but never about photography. So it was real funny when I’ve joined one of the local photographers groups on Facebook last summer and we’ve suddenly realised that we’re both members there :-). Well, the idea to work together came in seconds and we’ve decided to make a photo shoot as soon as possible.
Alisa was my first outdoor photo shoot after I decided to change the emphasis of my work form landscape, architecture and events to people. So I’m particularly grateful for this encounter. I had stage fright and was really nervous, but so charming and relaxed she was, all tension and stress disappeared in seconds :).
