Word of mouth is a great thing when you can get it and a sign you're doing a great job. A couple of weeks ago we got notified that Raziye would like to do a photoshoot with us after hearing about the Bouman Sutcliffe experience from a previous model. Raziye is a colleague of us and works for the same engineering company as we do. Simon didn't know Raziye, but I did. So, after Simon came to me, telling me that we had a new model, we walked to Raziye to introduce her to Simon and have a quick chat. We explained that the most important thing for us was that she was happy with the arrangements concerning the shoot. The date, type of shoot, type of location, etc.etc.
After about a week of planning, the three of us drove to Amersfoort's city centre for the shoot.
Exactly one month ago, Simon and I were drinking a beer at a pub helping a fellow photographer out, giving him advice for his upcoming (first) wedding assignment later that week (he managed to do a great job by the way). When we had no more advice to give, we turned to our next 'concern'. Our lack of models this autumn. Simon said he couldn't believe I didn't know any potential models. With so many people working around me, there certainly had to be at least one that had a spark within her. One that had to translate into amazing imagery. I thought for a moment and came up with a name of a colleague who certainly had that spark within her. I suggested: "Kerusha".
