Rebecca at Fjaðrárgljúfur

more reminiscings by Dave Rudin on some of our past Icelandic adventures…

Figures of Grace

Nude, Iceland, 2014

My trip to England in July of this year was primarily to attend a week long language class, but while I was there, I took advantage of the opportunity to photograph some English models, too.
One of those was Rebecca Tun, who I had photographed for a couple of days during my trip to Iceland in 2014.  I’ve posted some photographs of her previously, and here are a few more of her at the canyon named Fjaðrárgljúfur.

I had been to this canyon on my trip to Iceland the year before, but I decided that it was worth exploring again with a camera.  The weather in 2013 was not very cooperative when I was there (as was the case for pretty much the whole trip), but things were better the second time around.

While I did not get to photograph in the bottom of the canyon…

Rebecca and Nadine

Ah, memories of this Icelandic adventure with Dave Rudin and Nadine Stevens…send shivers down my spine. 😆 Because of the epic scenery, of course.

The clang of the age-old god speech /
May it forever play, young and free /
Under the northern lights…

Nude, Iceland, 2014

I’ve been away from posting for a couple of weeks (in part because I was away from home for a few days recently), so I’m coming back with a couple of photos of a couple of models in Iceland – Rebecca and Nadine.
These were made during my 2014 trip to Iceland, and I’ve posted some photos with Nadine there previously.  However, on the occasion of these photos, I was working with Rebecca for the first time.  She had been planning to visit Iceland from her home in England and very kindly arranged her schedule so that she could work with me for a couple of days.
The location is a well known waterfall located near one of the major towns on Iceland’s south coast.  As Rebecca had only arrived to meet us late in the morning, we had to make our photos here in the…

but I don’t need to use any stupid manga apps because I already have freakishly neotenous photographic tendencies and an unnatural relationship with light. (at Keflavik International Airport)


Zeitgeber starring Gestalta

During a sweeping visit back to Blighy in July 2013, I went to Wiltshire and experimented with taking video footage on a Canon 5DmkII with a Lensbaby Muse.  Consequently here’s a little atmospheric semi-narrative music video for my friend Eigenfrequenz’s song ‘Frequenz 18: Zeitgeber’, starring Gestalta as (according to my ad hoc analysis) a “romantic but morbid girl, a bit of a loner, lost in her own world and somewhat obsessed with death” floating around in the swelteringly hot rural English summer meadows thinking dark thoughts.

“the plan was simple, just walk around the centre of Bristol and react and shoot what we find. […] Rebecca is a truly awesome model to work with, i just love her looks, she always look like she has something to say and you want to listen.”

Yippeeee

I’ve just returned from my grand 3-week UK tour. It was coo! 
Among other things, I’ve been a lascivious lion with luxurious long locks and a lady of leisure in London, wielded weird and wonderful wrenches in Walsall, clambered in the cold on a crumbling castle in Conwy whilst in the Welsh wilderness, stopped in Stockport to stand in the hallowed halls of Hallam Mill, morphed into a menacing military maiden and a magnificent monarch in Middlesbrough, skimmed the skirt of Scotland, gliding through Glasgow to gather the gossip and lingering in the languid light of lodges in Lothian, then swooped down south to hold helmets in Henfield, wayfared through waves to the Island of Wight where I flouted formalities on floating furniture, shimmied and splashed in the Somerset sands, wading in Weston and eventually evading an effervescent effigy on the bleak beaches of Bridgwater.
A big thank you to everyone who fed, clothed, housed and entertained me during my mini adventure.


portraiture with Andreas Neubauer

Last March, I hitched a ride to Munich to be photographed by Andreas Neubauer. I say ‘be photographed by’ rather than ‘shoot with’ or ‘model for’, because this time the whole thing really felt more like he was taking my portrait. Maybe I was modelling as myself.

a girly shoot

Hotel Estherea, Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Hotel Estherea, Amsterdam, the Netherlands

When I was in Amsterdam last February, I did a shoot with a lovely lady called Yolande de Kort in a lovely lovely hotel called Hotel Estherea. Here are some iPhone snaps which I took in the lobby. Stained glass on the ceiling. Plants growing indoors. It is the embodiment of feminine happiness. Continue reading


bubblewrap in the bathroom

Also in February (2013), I worked with Stephen Roberts, a Brit living in Luxembourg, using one of my favourite lighting setups – the ringflash combined with ambient light. I think it makes just about any genre of people-photography look fashionarty. Likewise bubblewrap as a form of makeshift clothing. That’s all. Here are the results.
