Samsung Pink Wall with Mara

If there is one photography hotspot in Rotterdam right now, it’s the Samsung Pink Wall. It all started with blogger More Style Than Fashion   who was in Los Angeles and was inspired by the Paul Smith Pink Wall. In The Netherlands it is so much harder to create appealing content (I know first hand..) because we don’t have that many inspiring shooting locations. When I was still living in Los Angeles, I was always dreaming away at all of the inspiring locations. Wishing I had my camera and a model with me to create all the content that was poping up in my mind driving past Santa Monica, Downtown Los Angeles and even in Burbank.

 

I struggle finding cool and new locations to shoot at in Rotterdam even though it’s a very modern city with a lot of interesting spots. When I found out about the wall, I was very excited. Fortunatly for me I had a shoot coming up with a gorgeous model from Amsterdam: Mara Strijdhaftig. We met on a job and I asked her if she wanted to shoot. Here is a part of the results.

 

Creative backdrop
So a little bit behind the scenes and intention of this shoot: I wanted to create a sort of plastic/barbie feeling. We decided to work with flash for this shoot and flashlight usually creates a type of lightning that I can’t always appreciate to be honest. It’s very hard and can look unprofessional very easy. For this shoot it was perfect. Using the flash made it able to pop the colours of the backdrop and Mara’s clothes. She is wearing my Asos Pink jacket and my Topshop plastic pants. We styled it off with her Nike’s and some socks to add a little playfull touch. Because the lighting was a little bit harder and the colours were very bright I asked her to take very stiff poses to exaggerate the barbie feel of the poses. I wanted her to look like a doll. I hope you guys like it!

Jacket: Asos Denim Jacket in Hot Pink

Pants: Moto Pink Vinyl (Sold Out)

Hi guys! My name is Suzan Alberts and I live in Rotterdam! As a young girl my parents moved to Curacao and obviously I went with them. There my passion for the unknown started growing. I love exploring new places, finding the hidden paths on the side of the road and experience new things. When I grew up my goal became to work in the film-industry in Los Angeles, like a lot of people! I love to dream away in movies and picture myself working at beautiful filmsets. That´s why I decided to start with my Media and Entertainment Studies in my hometown! That resulted in an amazing internship in Los Angeles at Dick Clark Productions, a company known for The Golden Globes, Billboard Awards & various other award shows such as the ACMA's and The Streamy Awards. I had the time of my life and after I came back in The Netherlands, I started to develop my creative skills more and more. After I graduated, I started working as an online marketeer for Dutch Basics. I took photos for social-media, wrote blogs and updated all their social-media pages everyday. That is where my passion for fashion and writing started to grow. After that I started working as a Marketing and PR Manager at My Brand Amsterdam, a Dutch Clothing label. Now I own my own business called Social For Business and want to conquer the world with social media and video! Because I missed writing and photography too much, I started my own blog to show you my view on this world!
