Just got a message today that said I should have a look at the website stern.view and I’m very happy about this! Otherwise I would have been too late to take this screenshot! This photo by me was taken last year in September, when the model, (Kerstin) her sister Sandra (my early bird) and my woodcock aka. Jennifer went on a nice trip to lake Chiem. Well, Jenny and I hopped on the train, the other two lived there on location, how comfortable. (& What a pretty place to live!)

We didn’t shoot at the lake (at first), but in the swamp near the lake. Yeah you’ve heard right, in the middle of a swamp. But a beautiful swamp, with lovely, purple, flowery things. I thought that Kerstin’s hair colour looked so pretty between those flowers and needed to take some portraits. And because stern.view liked this photo too, (which I’m proud of, I allow myself to say that) I thought I make a little blogpost about this exact day.
I like train trips, I really do. But when you’ve got a mother plus teenage daughter sitting besides you, complaining about every other passenger within reach (the sneaky kind of person, smiling at you but at the same time thinking of a way to murder you) my usual happy, exciting, anticipating train trip mood can modify to a .. not so nice train trip mood.
We originally had planned to do something with mirrors, but as so often, did everything else but use the main prop. Poor Jenny had to carry one, rather large mirror across country, but we were able to leave it at Kerstin’s house and we’ll use that and a second one soon! So didn’t matter, in the end there where photos of models laying between heather on my memory card, we also had some kind of „creative native“ action with awesome, feathery headpieces I brought. What you can’t see, is that this whole ground was very, very wet and bouncy. But no one complained. One word: Professionals. Just laid down on the ground without having me rush for plastic bags and stuff .. We should all get a pair of wellies though for next time!
And the best thing last: We had ice cream! After that, we still quickly went to lake Chiem just to „check out the location“ for a possible next photoshoot, (which, I have to admit in shame, didn’t happen yet ..) before hurrying back to the train station. In general, there was too much sunshine for my taste and definitely too many mosquitos! But I’m looking forward to next month, then we’ll be there again for a shoot I had in mind for a long, long time. Off to the swamp! .. „Raus aus meinem Sumpf!“
I’ll finally be able to tick off this „mirror“ theme on my list. We’ll shoot at the same location, just with a couple of other models. Jenny and Kamil are on board, also Kerstin again, and a new female model. I know that it won’t be an easy photoshoot, so let’s hope that at least the weather will play along!
Sandra joined us on our way home back to Munich, before flying back to the UK the next day.
Gorgeous face, woodcock. Peace.
And thank you for reading.
