There are some new gems on there, like the 15m optical! USB cable, Eizo CG247x, CG2420 and the perfect fit for managing CaptureOne: the Tangent Element Bundle, I especially love this one.

Last week I spent two days in prague assisting at a photo shoot for a new Paco Rabanne advertising campaign. It was great working with New York based Photographer Greg Harris and his team. We had about 25 people on site, quite a big production. So here are a few impressions from the preparations and prelight test the day before. It was interesting to see their workflow and the way they handled the data and technical challenges we faced.
Greg told me in order to be a successful photo assistant in New York, one must be like a ninja (true story). I believe he is referring to the 18 skills a ninja must learn, although you have to adapt them to the job, of course.
All in all it was a great experience and I had a good time. There was a behind the scene photographer as well, so I’ll update this post once I get hold of those images. If you’d like to learn more about the film studios where we shot, check out the website of Barrandov Studios. Btw. films like “Chronicals of Narnia”, “Wanted” and “Babylon A.D.” where shot here.
Hey guys, just came back from a brief visit at Paul Ripke’s Studio in Norderstedt. Today he had something like a garage sale for a Viva con Aqua project going on. So I could either do my tax declaration or drive by and have a chat with him.
A couple of minutes drive later I stepped into his studio and had a look around. Most of the stuff he was selling was already gone and the band that played there had finished already, so not much was happening anymore. But nevertheless I was there for a different reason anyway.
So I had a look at Paul’s portfolio walls and a brief chat with him. I introduced myself as a freelance photo assistant and left my business card. Unfortunately he isn’t looking for any freelancers to join his team currently, but it was interesting to talk to him anyway. He even gave me one of his books for free (many thanks again!).
I believe he’s doing a good job in marketing himself (from what I saw so far), but see for yourself: Paul Ripke’s website.
