Winter Girls – Portrait Photography in the Snow

20141230-DSC_8445

I came back home for winter holidays and my lovely cousins came to visit. A couple of days after christmas it began to snow so of course we had to use this opportunity and take a few winter portraits messing around in the snow. We didn’t plan anything in advance & didn’t have much time, so while I see room for improvement I’m quite happy with the way these pictures turned out despite (or because?) the spontaneity. What do you think? Do you have a favourite?

Bratislava Fashion Weekend

So I just sobered up from the madness that was Bratislava Fashion Weekend, which is the closest Slovakia has to fashion week. I only got the email about my press pass last minute so I missed the first day’s shows but I spent the rest of the weekend in and around the Fashion tent, either in the photo-pit or wandering about taking photos of stylish individuals. There would usually be about four shows per day, mainly by Slovak designers but there was a few shows by famous brands like s.Oliver, aftershock London and Nike. But first I’ll present photos from saturday featuring slovak designers which pleasantly surprised me with their talent.

This is a collection by Michaela Luptakova, full of edgy urban looks.

Petra Poorova presented her Coco Chanel inspired collection featuring feminine silhouettes and bows.

Holubec is certainly not a man to go for safe looks. His collection was absolutely stunning with its edgy clothes, materials and mild nudity. Needless to say, me and the audience loved it.

Jana Gavalcova stunned everyone with her amazingly abstract swimwear.

Miklosko Fashion Design. Miklosko didn’t fail to charm with his elegant details and intricate designs.

Hope you enjoyed this selection of photos, there’s more from every designer on my Facebook page so make sure to check it out. 🙂

 

 

Bratislava Urban Market &; The Uniques

Another long hiatus from posting due to a broken computer. I guess I´ll never achieve my dream of  posting regulary, but I´ll try.  Well anyways, I´m just planning a few photoshoots for my new website, which I hope to unveil soonish. In the meantime I´m shopping for presents, drinking tea and wine (usually not at the same time) and trying to come to terms with the fact that after living in the library for 3 weeks I now have a chance for social life! (If I still have some friends left, that is).

Anywaaays. On saturday I went to Christmas Urban Market in Bratislava, which was a great experience. I know that in Glasgow there´s heaps of events like this, The Vintage fair  or my favourite Bold Souls events, but I´ve not seen anything like this in Bratislava, featuring independed labels and designers so I think it´s a great change. There was also a fashion show and lots and lots of bands playing and a few events. I´ve only seen half of the fashion show as I came in late (classic), but what I´ve seen was pretty impressive:

And of course I went there mainly to see The Uniques, the only Slovak band I actually like, do check them out.  The concert was great, although most of the time I was torn whether to enjoy music or take pictures, I also managed to say hi to the singer and gave him my card.  Also can I just say I love my 85m 1.8, I wanna marry it and have lots of beautiful babies (photographs) em yeah, its awesome.

Other than that I had a great time and can´t wait to go there again next year.

As usual I´ll try to upload more pictures on my fb page, so click like to keep posted.
