Apple Store Cologne City – Pre Opening

Today I had the pleasure of being invited to a little preview tour/event in the brand spanking new Apple Store in Cologne. It’s our second one here in Cologne and I have to say it is one of the most beautiful Apple Stores I have seen so far. And of any stores in general. It is located in (according to a 2008 survey) Europes busiest shopping street, Schildergasse. A lot of people pass by, everyone will see it. The Architecture is beautiful and Apple did such a beautiful job with the interior of the store. I obviously (!) shot all…

Apple MacBook – Thoughts

So for my LA trip last year I had an Apple MacBook on loan from Apple to test. I was hoping to get a maxed out one with the m7 chip and all that, but that wasn’t available and I was sent the mid-range version and thought instead of writing about it I’ll record myself talking about it a bit. As I travel quite often for different projects and jobs it would be nice to have a smaller machine that can do most or all of the work I need to do while on the road. Minimizing gear normally is…

Olga Kobzar – lesson in geology

Yes yes, I’m trying to be a bit funny here. Shooting with Olga was a blast and I think it shows. I am a bit busy with some personal stuff at the moment that really takes most of my energy, but the creative juices, as they say, are flowing and that process luckily helps to clear the head in between and to move forward. The goal for this year still is to shoot more. More personal and more client work. Hope you are all well and can enjoy your weekend. Teymur

Olga says hi!

End of last year I had the great pleasure of finally meeting and working with Olga Maria Kaminska. We shot a couple of beautiful sets. All shot in my “home studio”, as far as you can call it that at the moment. Hair and Makeup by the talented Katarzyna Jeziorowski. 😀 Fun times, even more fun results. Minimum to none retouching on all of them. Just don’t feel like it anymore. I hope you like them as much as I do. First set just coming up. more tk. kind regards, Teymur.

Dina lit up.

Nooooo, no no no. This is not a Christmas shoot specifically. I just like fairy-lights and how you can use them. Also one of the cheapest ways to light a model. Wonderful light nonetheless. Hope you all are having a good time ending 2016 as this year was quite an eventful one. Too much hate, fear and just stupidity out there which we need to tackle somehow. I don’t want to get political at this point really, but I just want to wish you all well and hope for a more uplifting 2017. For now please enjoy the photos I…

Leila LoFi – Model and Photoshop stuff

I was playing around in Photoshop a bit and trying some stuff and remembered I had these photos lying in last years Lightroom library. One thing added to the other and bandaning badabum we have a nice LoFi (80s/VHS) effect.
