Blending People with Nature


Blending a model with a nature background is a great way to create a powerful portrait. In this “Among the Cacti” fashion photo shoot for the fashion blog theModeCode, this summer’s latest fashion trends are highlighted in a dessert like backdrop.

The concept was “urban desert” which is exactly what the botanical gardens are, being a green escape in the middle of condensly populated Amsterdam.  Winke from Innocent Modeling Agency was our subject for the day and an intriguing part of the botanical displays for the visitors to the green house.  The shoot has an other worldly feeling in the surreal cactus green house with Amsterdam canals just visible through the glass in the background.

Shot for: theModeCode;  Model: Winke van Wreeland; Make-up: Nona Ibu; Hair and Styling: Rebeka Kadlicsek; Photography: Megan Alter Photography; Location: De Hortus Botanicus -Amsterdam.

Winke was wearing: desert yellow dress from Sigi Perrée; orange ostrich leather jacket from Saint Tropez; light blue silk scarf from Roeckl; red chiffon blazer from Vera Mont; strong yellow wooden bracelet from H&M and small pastel shoulder bag from Paul’s Boutique.
