New project with Jon Etxezarraga

I have recently started working with portrait photographer Jon Etxezarraga and I am very excited to announce that we are about to launch our own brand in the next few weeks. Even though our work is very different, we believe that it will be interesting to see how we combine our styles. 

On our first project together, we have collaborated with Amane, a clothing store from Durango (Basque Country) where Amaia sells beautiful clothes like the ones you see in the following photos. We shot at three different locations here in the Basque Country, and we had a wonderful time working with models Elene Okamika , Aiora Ponce, María Basabe and Bihozne Artetxe. We also had the help of make up artist Alba Herrera who made an excellent job, too!

This is a small selection of photographs we shot for this project, but we will be showing a lot more of the stuff that we have been doing in these past few weeks, when we finally reveal everything in August. We are looking forward to working on sessions with individuals, couples, families and brands. So if you are interested, go ahead and send us an email to leireub@gmail.com. Keep checking our Instagrams for updates and news! Can't wait to see this project grow, we are beyond excited!

Portrait session with friends

Yesterday morning we wandered around a forest with beautiful tall trees. Jon is usually behind the camera, but yesterday he gave me the chance to photograph him instead. Go check out his wonderful portrait work here.

Would you like to go for a walk in the forest or to touch the sea on the coast and take some photos in the meantime? Send me a message and we'll make it happen!

*All photos taken with the 6D + Sigma 35 Art

 

 

Collaboration with portrait photographer Jon Etxezarraga

We are lucky to live in such a beautiful place. It only took us half an hour to arrive to this rocky beach and experience one of the best portrait sessions I’ve had in a while. This time I met with Jon Etxezarraga, a fellow photographer whose work mostly consists on portraits. It was the first time that we met and worked together, and I definitely loved how he carefully set up his camera and how he guided Bihozne, our model, to create such an elegant set of images (which you can check on the link above). It's interesting to see the differences in how we visualize an image; he focuses more on the person in front of him, whereas I like to make the landscape  also part of the photograph. I think it was really positive to learn so much from a collaboration like this, and I would love to keep working together with him and other fellow photographers on upcoming projects. 

I think this experience made me think about how enriching it can be to go out and shoot with other photographers. There is always something new to learn (about posing models, camera gear, settings, locations, light…) and it's awesome to talk to other people about the craft you believe in. 

These are some of the images I made on that sunny morning, I hope you like them!

*Thank you so much to Bihozne Artetxe and Jon Etxezarraga for all the great moments of that Saturday morning.
