ZARA x MIJA by FlatauPhotography

BLOG, PHOTOGRAPHY

Tow years ago I bought a camera and started to focus on street-style photography – of my wife for her Blog. A few days ago ZARA has released a new collection of  T-Shirts with a set of photos that I took . I quite like what they did with them. Here a few images out of their online shop.

ARTWORK, BLOG, GRAFFITI, vs.YOU

Titel_WACOMvsYOUFebruar 2014 – I came across the new WACOM Companion/Cintiq. After testing it for a while and reviewing several product clips – I had the feeling that It would be nice to show my feeling of the product within a video. With the aim to show that the “Companion is not a toy” – while being a portable workstation with no compromise.

FRGMNTZ-01_WACOM-COMPANION_vs.YOUI came up with a concept I believed would be interesting and contacted WACOM EUROPE. They where quite exited and open to my concept and intention to create a Testimonial. From there I contacted my colleagues and friends who’s work I admire since years, Chris from SNDY.tv and DanielGrundPhotography - asking them if they would be up to shoot what I had in my mind – aka FRGMNTZ.POP-UP_WACOMvs.YOUFrom here on we started the quite tough timeline of 12-days, me creating artwork digital to analog from 2D to 3D and directing the guys how I´d like to everything captured while changing locations….

and finally setting up the 2-day Pop-Up gallery.

The creative outcome such as artworks displayed, as well as a few T-Shirts, are currently available in the STORE.

Prototypes as the 3-D printed PORCEPLANEv.01, PORCEPLANEv.02 and the hand-crafted SPRAYCANDLE will follow by end of 2014.

I enjoy such short project collaborations that take place during my holidays a lot – and I guess there are more to come.

I used to carry my Cintiq 21UX along my MacBookPro with me for such sessions. Since I tried the new Wacom COMPANION the whole process is just so much more enjoyable. The space on my small table up there is much better organized and there is no need to carry all the equipment around.

Setup is super quick and the Companion has a good performance and handling on top. THANKS WACOM, for finally realizing such professional product!
