bodyNsoul STYLE - Edition 4


In November 2010 we photographed Zoureena Rijger (Miss Suriname 2009) and Audrey Bakrude (lead singer APOPLECTIC) for Around the World/ Sparkling Jewel in the fourth edition of the bodyNsoul STYLE series in UNITED Magazine. After the huge success of the first series the bar was high to produce the second series in the same concept, yet differently. Having total creative freedom from the client we opted to go for a similar scarce light environment, but with a more feminine feel in the images this time. This allowed us to once again showcase the watches and jewels in a unique way.

Shooting Zoureena and Audrey on 2 separate days, we missed some of the creative sparks that flow when everything is happening at the same time, while on the other hand it made the work so much more "body and soul" since each of the models got her own feminine creative juices flowing this way. For both sessions Joelle Issa did the makeup while Faith Mohamedigsan did the hair. This was the first time both Joelle and Faith participated in the production of bodyNsoul STYLE. Yet none of them is a newcomer in the bodyNsoul Studio. We have done multiple jobs for multiple clients with each one of them sometimes even with both of them. Actually it was also a first time in bodyNsoul Style for Zoureena even though we did multiple other projects with her before and even in that month too. For Audrey it was actually the first time as a photo-model in front of the bodyNsoul camera, even though we have shot her multiple times as the lead singer of Suriname's foremost rock band APOPLECTIC or as a runway model on the catwalk.

Around the World and Sparkling Jewel both have stores in the Hermitage Mall and sell wonderful watches and jewels as can be seen in bodyNsoul Style Edition 3 and Edition 4. All images can be seen in the photo gallery for bodyNsoul STYLE Edition 4.

Weekend Cooking


The weekend of April one was a very good opportunity to do what we have been talking about in the bodyNsoul Photography Studio for a while already. I love to cook and frequently we cook ourselves wonderful dishes at home, since the office is very near home we discussed that we should photograph our food more often. While it is not MADE FOR PHOTOGRAPHY food, we still try to capture it in the most flattering way possible. As it was my girlfriends birthday this weekend more reason to share the beautiful and tasteful food we made and ate. While crossing the studio with the food, Guillo stopped me and kicked off this series of 3 food images, shooting the Sushi and the Sashimi. Two days later when I did a remake of the pasta and the shrimps I decided to shoot those too. In all cases Desiree is to be credited for the food styling and part of the cooking. Over time we should showcase a lot more food photography, most of it probably right out of the kitchen on it's way to our stomachs, but also some work we do for our clients.

BLISS - Surinaams Mindstyle Magazine


BLISS is a new quarterly Surinamese magazine. In November 2010 we were contacted by Ismeralda Neede with the request if we were interested to do some of the photography for the magazine. After having a meeting with Ismeralda and Lucretia Redan. We decided that we were a good fit to each other and we agreed that we would start ASAP with the photography for the first edition.

We photographed Miss India Suriname 2010 - Sunaina Jagroep for the cover and the cover article, while we also photographed the fashion pages featuring Miss India Suriname 2009 - Cher Marchand and Miss Suriname 2009 - Zoureena Rijger. Last but not least we also photographed Rebecca Issa for the Magazine. Different than most of our projects Ismeralda managed the styling, hair and makeup for the shoots.

The shoot with Sunaina took place on the 26th of November in the bodyNsoul Studio. Her hair and makeup was done by Sharon Yang's Runway. The dress for her cover shoot came from Sari Nagar. During the pre-discussions with Lucretia and Ismeralda, we suggested shooting a white dress on a white background while using gold for the design of the magazine cover. Lucretia loved the idea. We started out shooting full body images while Sunaina was standing, but we soon decided that a sitting image would fit a lot better on the cover. For the shot of the cover story, Sunaina was dressed in a dress by CHARMED.

He sees all, he hears all and he photographs it all. Before you even notice it you're image will be captured by the quickness of his fingers. People around him noticed that, and gave him the name of "Fast-fingers". Fast-fingers For his speed of his fingers on the shutter of Fast-fingers his camera.

Mini bodyNsoul Photography Exhibition in Club Shooter during Private Event


On the 6th of December 2010, during a private event.We were invited to have a mini exhibition of some of our work. Since the event was in SHOOTERS, we opted to include some of the photography we have been doing in the club. While at the same time we showcased work done during other events hosted by the same company and some of our Art photography.

At the same time bodyNsoul partner Patrick Krolis was one of the speakers of the night and discussed photography as an Art and as a business with the guests. While partner Fausto Fraser was covering the event and partner Guillo Grant was making sure these images came live on screen.

SHOOTERS was transformed in a location with extravagant ambience and the live music, house DJ, food, wine and cocktails, mixed with very happy guests made all for a beautiful evening. Of course this lead to more beautiful bodyNsoul Photography during the event

See some of the images showcased in the exhibition hereunder. For a gallery with more of the work exhibited click HERE.
