dance video

This is a private project with two dancers, one Hip Hop and the other break dancer. The idea was to make a simple and low budget film with few elements but rich on emotion and enthusiasm, It is all based on improvisation and with the dancers private chemistry in center. We wanted to capture a sort of a "jam session" feeling where anything can happen.

Dancers are Dominque Beck and Rami Al-Saadi from Lets Dance studio.

The green way...

We at Photopop like our planet so we want to do what we can to keep it safe. One of the things we use most of is electricity and everybody that have worked with a professional photographer have found out that we use a lot of gear. Some of it is really power hungry and some of it has to be constantly plugged in, therefor the decision of going for 100% green energy was not a hard one to make.
In the beginning of 2009 we made the switch to only buy energy made by green sources, so if your company is committed to the environmental friendly way of thinking, the chain will stay unbroken when working with Photopop.

New project: Floating Figure

We have just launched a brand new project called Floating Figure. For a long time it has been our plan to work with water in an artistic way. We did not want to go for the typical "underwater" style which has been widely exposed throughout the time. On of our wishes was to have the floating benefit of water, the brilliance of the reflecting surface and be able to maintain the ability to pose in a graceful and elegant way.
Therefor we chose to shoot this series of pictures from above, looking down on a 5000L water bassin, found at the local toy store. This is something that is widely common in family gardens and it was ideal choise for us because the blowup border allowed us to work indoors in an hassle free way and gave us the freedom of controlling how much water was needed in order for the model to float but still be able to control her movements and have parts of the body above the surface.
