Story of the photo
Richard is a retired doctor from the UK. He just spent a hellish night in the Tasman sea during the Rolex Sydney Hobart Race onboard the Clipper 70 Switzerland. Two successive low pressure systems hit the boat, the wind got stronger and stronger, hitting 60 knots, and all the crew are exhausted. Yet, the day after Richard is on deck, tired but happy, enjoying the adventure of a lifetime. And his face speaks volumes…

How to optimize the Lightroom Backup on a Mac

Despite having a 500GB local HD i’m constantly fighting with my files/disk space.
Deleting what I can and moving to external disks. Tonight once more I was digging inside my HD to make free space. Really annoying are the Lightroom back-up folders. In fact I back them up twice.
1. They occupy a lot of space on my local HD, several GB
2. They are backed up with for a second time with Time Machine
This can’t bee the solution !!!

Make up and Light

Shooting out in the nature is complex, the light is not always as you would like to have it, the studio work should be simpler. You can adjust the light as you like as you have it in mind, the stylist prepare the model with as you discuss, the eyes, cheeks etc. Seems easy but it’s not. The light is something witch require patience and then you have it but the make-up part is a challenge. What if the model think the eyes should be less or more retouched? The time is flying, retouching, adjusting the light etc. and you are still looking for different positions.
The studio work is cool really like it and the winter is a good time to work on this. Looking forward to the next shooting in the studio.

It’s quite some time ago since the last cover on Skippers magazine, and finally with a bit of a surprise here we have one. The magazine is the December – March issue. Took the photo in Zurich during the 2012 Volvo Match Race Cup. Right before the start of the race a was on-board with the CicaCER team. A few maneuvers to warm up every body in the crew was a great chance to get some really close action photos.
The surprise is right during the event I didn’t realized the power of this photo. Back home several weeks after when Brice the chief editor called me that he is looking for a cover image with the girls team I finally found it. As always selection of the photos is as difficult as shooting, it’s so easy to miss a good photo.
