We met some years ago in a photography course and she told me that she rides BMX Flatland. BMX what? I had no clue what that means... But she had some pictures with her and I wanted to find out more. So we did the first of many shootings together:
I was instantly hooked. Monika is a creative and talented photographer herself, so she knows how important it is to capture the perfect moment. She is one of the world's greatest BMX Flatland riders (she won the BMX Masters / BMX Worlds contest many times in the category Girls flatland) and never gives up. During our sessions we developed many ideas, some of them not easy to realize:
Moni is really great to work with: patient, accurate and full of energy.
When we saw this tree on the beautiful green spring meadow she knew what to do... ;-)
We always look for different pictures: in the above photo our goal was combining artistic flatland action with a laid-back posing to create a classy, elegant and cool look. Believe me, it's hard work to do all that - again and again - in such a stylish dress! Of course we also do more traditional shots:
We're doing our BMX Flatland shots during the whole year, we covered all seasons. Here some fall action:
It's always great fun to do some BMX Flatland in winter with lots of snow:
As you can see we evolved in the past years. But the best thing for me: what began as a fun and creative way to create some beautiful and interesting Flatland pics has become a friendship. Thank you Moni.
