House of Eléonore’s Polo weekend 2017

THE polo event of the year was there for House of Eléonore. This year they had their own team sponsored. I’ve been visiting and playing polo in the last year, and it felt great to see it again this weekend. It’s a very unique sport and it always feels like a relaxing day, drinking a wine or champagne, and enjoying the great weather with your family and friends.

Did you know that:

  • The Netherlands has only 60 active polo players.
  • Every player needs, at least, 4 horses per match (because the match exist of 4 parts).
  • Every polo player has a handicap that ranges from -2 till 10 (10 is the best)
  • The Netherlands has only 4 clubs.
  • Every body can play polo, if you have a horse or not! Just call Polo Club Midden Nederland and you can organize a training yourself.

Paris Shadow Series | Part I

The city of light, is how we also call Paris. It’s a city where the sun is making a special ambiance on the Haussman styled city. She light is pointing out what is beautiful, but also marks the objects which makes Paris so special with shadows. Since I discovered the power of these shadows, I’m looking differently to light. And as you know me, I have to take a photo it. Because it’s just very very beautiful in it’s own way. To be continued…

 

ELLE Arabia – Sakina Paris

Ever since I joined the Sakina Paris team, I have been photographing inside the atelier besides being Sakina’s assistant. This week we planned a special photoshoot: a digital and printed article for ELLE Arabia. Lucky me, Sakina wanted me to take her portraits. Our lovely make-up artist Nora Kourkis from Sweden joined us for the shooting day, and created the most beautiful make up on Sakina.

Photographing and filming are two jobs close to each other. Sakina gave me the chance to edit the video, even though I had no experience in editing. The video is filmed by Manuel Laurent, and the interview is filmed by me.

You can read the article (in Arabic) here.

P.s. We are proudly organizing Sakina’s debut at Beirut Fashion Week in Libanon!

Buly 1803

Parfum has always been a mystery for me. It’s definitely an art of aesthetic and will characterize the person. Buly 1803 is a parfum house based in the 6th arrondissement in Paris. The moment I walked in, the staff welcomed me friendly to this historic and absolutely beautiful store. The parfumes smell amazing and it made me want to buy one. The lovely assortiment of oils, candles and other products are also available on their website, which is in both French and English (smart move, Buly 😉 ) I’m in love with the store; the decor, the friendly staff, the quality of the products, the classical music and of course, the parfum.

Le Brebant

One day, my friend Margarita showed me this lovely restaurant. I was immediately impressed by the interior. An exotic ambiance made me come back this weekend to photograph this place with my Canon camera. Typically French cafés and restaurants are very beautiful, but I also like places as this one. You can see that an interior designer designed this restaurant. It’s located on the Grand Boulevard and it has a lovely terrace too!
