living in Cologne, GER since 2000

I never felt a really close connection to photography all my life. So this can be called a late found passion. Gratefully "still and forever" close internet-friend Monika, finally talked me into buying a camera and giving it a try. I bought my first camera in 2006. The composition of my pictures is strongly influenced by my favorite childhood literature: comics! A love for strong colors and harsh contrasts defines the style of all my pictures. The pictures I take don't ask for a deaper meaning... they just want to please. At least that's what I am trying to accomplish...

present and future

Hey dudettes and dudes,

just wanted to report a little about what I have done since my last entry and what I am about to do in the near future...
So yesterday I had a shoot with Alexa Unique (finally, after we are in contact and planning to shoot since YEARS). We had an awesome (the BEST) latex designer supporting us with two outfits for the shoot and I had plans for something really stunning... but we got disappointed by the bad weather here in Cologne. Though it is summer we had rain like hell. Nastasia did such a great job in make up and hairstyling.... and it was ruined within minutes.
Nevertheless we TRIED to do some pictures, but we were all not convinced about the results. So next Sunday (when the wether should be sunny again) we try to repeat the shoot, delivering better results!!!

but before I have a shoot with Sinah He for my project (the exhibition) next Saturday - in case we don't have such bad luck with the weather again like yesterday. Nadine Brückner designed and extraordinary, stunning, beautiful long, black skirt for it - very, very HIGH FASHION. We will collaborate with airbrusher Manuel Pötsch
of course the idea will remain a secret again till the exhibition takes place. But again this is a very provoking and polarising theme. Even THAT extreme that we have to take care while shooting not getting any trouble...
But I always wanted to put some high fashion in one of my more extreme works. Thanks for especially Nadine as well as Sinah and Manuel making this possible. You surely will be either fascinated or disgusted by the result - in case you will visit the exhibtion (think in 2016)

...and even before THAT I plan to do a shoot with Sarah Axeronieas, which I didn't meet or shoot till 2 years now - back then she was involved in my biggest scenery for the project.

further plans then for July are to travel to kassel again, do a shoot with friend and model (addicted to) Jenny. We plan to do several sets, and one (with some buddies of her involved as background actors) for my project again. Then another shoot with Carmen Killerbarbie69 follows as we couldn't realise one of the ideas in our past shoot some weeks ago.

On the last weekend then in July the gothic festival "Amphi" will take place in Cologne, and finally I will meet Dana & Martin again, who will be my guests then.
The last so far planned shoot is then in begin of August with beautiful and stunning tattoo artist Barbora Sharuzen Gazurova from Slovakia - still looking for designers to support us

so THESE are only the scheduled shoots... next to this I am actually planning to finally realise another idea for my project, an interpreation of "Alice in Wonderland". hoping for a golden autumn I hope to make it happen then with 5 models involved (still looking for one). But I am still busy with organising the shoot, obtain outfits and accessoires

...as always stay tuned. Will keep you updated

Sooo much going on and I'm not only looking up for OUR result such as the other results you're working on!
When reading this entry it comes to my mind that maybe we should pick up some security guys for our savety?!

Looking forward to our shooting, will be mind blowing!

just some news about the past weeks

Hey Folks,

as already mentioned in my last blog entry I have been to Mallorca and am back (obviously) meanwhile.
Had a great time there together with Dana & martin and all the people I met there, did great shoots with close friend Jenny and with Plastique InVeins from Berlin.
Though the weather was not as sunny as hoped and expected (we had two days of rain and it was pretty windy in the late afternoon always), I was lucky to do my shoots with nice weather and never forgot to enjoy my free time as vacation.
We were residing in a 4 bedroom finca with our own pool, had bbq in the evening, even met a girl from GNTM (Martin had a shoot with her) and a professional football player (his girlfriend was shot by Martin as well) and lots of other very nice people.
Shortly before my trip I did a spontanous little shoot with "Mrs. Neighborhood" Larissa/Kim and two shoots since I am back. One with Killerbarbie 69 and one with Maya/Kiira.
On Mallorca I did a shoot for NoBalls Rec. again (for flyers) and the shoot with Maya/Kiira was for the same intention.... so stay tuned, there is more to come
and don't forget to visit me on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/OKn.Photography)
there you can see some first results of my shoots on Mallorca

I'm a bitch :D

okay... just noticed again how much time has passed since my last entry in the blog. Obviously I am not very good at this, keeping you up to date, reporting about my life.
I would promise it will get better, but I know myself too good ;)

 

so at least I can tell you something by now.
I will be travelling to Mallorca with close friends (Dana & Martin Höhne) and we will do some shoots there. A little bit fashion, a little bit nude - but always MY STYLE of course.
As models I have a good buddy from Cologne (Jenny), which I shot three times already, and Cindy (Plastique InVeins) from Berlin for one day. 
Today I received a request if I would be interested in having some of my pictures published in an erotic art magazine
well, this needs to be clarified still

when I am back, I will proceed with 2 pictures/sets for my project.
one with 8 models showing a fairy tale based interpretation and another one with only one model showing some ethic-religious background - always (of course) in the well known provoking way ;)

 

stay tuned

temporarily finished

Samstag, 02.11.2013 18:34:38h

the "under construction" phase is temporarily finished.
In the end I have to confess the update of my galery is not THAT big of a change.... there are some all-time favorites which seem to be staying forever in my gallery.

though I have some more extraordinary pictures done for my project, they are not meant to be uploaded before the exhibition I plan somewhere and somewhen in the future.
I want to present them there exclusively
