Steffen has been to the studio several times with his costumes. He has built some of the best Star Wars costumes I have ever seen, this time he was all excited to get shot in his movie accurate spider-man outfit. Unfortunately the night before the shoot he burst the zippier and couldn’t get it repaired in time.  I had just finished shooting Jasmine doing her yoga and hand stands when he arrived and thought hay keep the same light set up, shoot white on white and have some fun with it.

Return of Lord Vader

Not long ago in a galaxy not so far away,  I had the chance to photograph one of the “501 German Garrison” Darth Vaders. That costume was a 100% true remake of the Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith Vader costume. The time was the costume was a 100% accurate version of Darth Vader in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. To be honest I was kind of excited as a big Star Wars fan, a new hope was the first film I ever saw at the cinema as a kid. I also wanted to time this shoot for Star Wars celebration this weekend

Triggertrap Mobile Review ….


This is one of those cool stories that only the internet could make possible. I meet a few of the guys from Triggertraps at Photokina this year.  There had been a lot of talk about them in on of the Flickr groups I administer so I wanted to check them out. Basically a few guys thought they had a great idea but needed the start up capital. Using Kickstarter they wanted to raise $25,000 (£16,000 / €20,000) to create their first product, Triggertrap v1. But got more than they bargained with an astounding 300% of the target amount, and nearly 900 backers funded them to the tune of $75,000 (£48,000 / €60,000). The item that interested me the most is the Triggertrap Mobile, which launched in May 2012.

Markus and Jana from Saberproject were in the studio last Friday. The Saber Project is a Star Wars re-enactment troop that specialise in the high art of light-saber fighting (if you look at their website you will lots of video example).


Your father’s light saber. This is the weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a blaster; an elegant weapon for a more civilized age. For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times… before the Empire.- Obi-Wan
