hail to the max...

It was early September when a second shooting for Future Models was organized. 

I was full of ideas and he was a new face from Germany.

We instantly had a great connection and while heading back to my improvised studio, we discussed on various subjects. The thing that I enjoy the most when socializing with people from different countries is to talk about the first words I heard in his/her language and different habits of people from that particular country. Come to think of it, the first word I have ever heard and learned in german, was “ja”. Nothing out of the ordinary, I guess. But there is a funny story behind all this, a story that won’t be revealed just now. He knows it though :)

As it happens, he is the first foreigner I’ve met, which here means not Romanian, who was curious enough to ask few things about Romanian culture. Responding to his questions was quite a challenge…probably because after 50 years of communism and 20 years of chaos there is little left to be said.

Anyhow…back to the shooting...

For me this shooting was sort of a turning point as it became an experiment with light and darkish background. And since I was thrilled with the session’s outcome, this idea is to evolve into a trademark for future shootings. On the other hand, the agency didn’t go crazy for this and, as a result, they’ve chosen just a couple of images to be used for his book. I didn’t mind. I was happy. So was Maximilian. And that is of most importance.

There is one more thing to say now: hail to the max!

P.S. The second word I’ve learned in german, by the way, was “apotheker”…
