My home is my playground

After buying a new tripod and seeing lots of others peoples night shots, I thought it would be a good idea to spend a saturday night being productive and not drinking. And getting access to the roof of my building helped as well 馃檪 聽Soon more to come, stay tuned

Bloco Black Sound System 2014 – Apresenta : 40 Anos de Hip-Hop – Edi莽茫o Especial

While I was in Rio to cover the Carnival, I suddenly got a facebook message from a guy I knew from my time in Copenhagen, Denmark, just randomly asking me if I wanted to go to a HipHop street party / bloco later that evening, because he knows the organizer. 聽Was surprised to suddenly get a message after 2 years not speaking, but as glad to get that offer. I sadly was severely delayed as I had to cover some other bloco too… So the party was basically over, but I still got to talk more than an hour (due to my lovely personal translator Sonia, thanks again so much! ) with some awesome people, and they made it all worth while, and they are one of the biggest reasons for me to come back to Rio again!
As there was not much party anymore, I just did some portrait shots of the people around me.

GRES Beija-Flor de Nil贸polis parade in the Samadrome

After I had the chance to spend 4 hours at the final rehearsal of the Beija-Flor samba school, (click here)聽, I of course had to take photos of their final parade inside the Sambadrome in Rio. They were one of the top finalists, and are considered as one of the best carnival schools in general. However this year they sadly did not make it to the top 3. Nevertheless it was a great experience, as well due to the fact that the rehearsal was my first real samba experience, and their parade the last one before I flew home at the end of my trip. 聽The brazilians have a saying that once you experienced carnival, you will never let go of it, and I am def looking forward to next year already! 馃檪

GRES Beija-Flor de Nil贸polis

I had the great opportunity to take photos at the last public rehearsal of the Samba school Beija-Flor (Hummingbird in english)…
It would be an understatement that it was a crazy experience! 馃檪
I was called both brave and crazy by the locals to travel 45 min by an old local train to the suburb outside Rio.. And that with almost no word of portuguese and alone 馃檪 The place was huge, and the streets outside packed too as it was a kind of streetparty all around it on top of it.. The entire neighbourhood lives from and for the school, so everybody was in a great mood… I didnt know that a sambaschool easily consists of 3-4000 people, and it was just a huuuuge amount of people in one small space…
Despite the language barrier (thanks to Rac to try to translate! ) , I managed to communicated with some people and was allowed completely open access to the entire rehearsal.

Audrey’s and Marc’s Wedding

Had the honor to document Audrey’s and Marc’s special day near Brussels, Belgium. What I love most about weddings is the fact, that no wedding is the same. It is always interesting to meet different people, nationalities, different customs etc.
I enjoyed the day a lot and had a happy couple, which is the most important part!
