Some time ago, Simon walked over to my desk to have a bit of a chat on our favourite subject. We work at the same office, doing totally different jobs, but share the same passion for photography. One of our colleagues sitting close to us, overheard our conversation about our endless search for new potential models. Mostly casting our net among the people working for our company or the staff at the hotel Simon stays in. It was not long before Jan Jaap Pape popped up his head and indicated that he wouldn't mind taking part in one of our photo experiences (as we now like to call them). We took note of his request, but Simon and I had our sights on a topic that did not need a male model right now. Several weeks later, we were considering the darkening evenings and what we could do inside to fill the winter months. Then it came to us, Jan Jaap, black & white a noir style experience. The next step was only to ask him if he was still game, and he was with the bonus and challenge of his brother too.
