I am a guest at a Plus Size shooting in an elegant location high above the city.
“3-2-1 – Hold – Great!” Dutch photographer Rob van Pinxteren directs his model from pose to pose. Change of clothes, make-up fresh up, while Rob is checking conditions of illumination. He has a very clear idea of what he wants. He works with light and shadow effects and would never change his model’s body shape with Photoshop. Rob van Pinxteren’s attitude: “It doesn’t matter how much you weigh, it’s about feeling comfortable in your skin.”
Actually, he takes pictures of fast cars and bikes, racetracks are his professional home; of course he also takes bookings. However, shoots with curvy women are his passion, for those he sometimes drives all the way to Germany or Denmark.
The list of companies he has worked with so far is long: Infinity Sun Benelux, Chika Jewelry DK, Elomi Swimwear & Lingerie delivered by Farfallino.nl, EMB Fashion wedding dresses, just to mention a few. Currently Rob often shoots with Mariann Louise , a red-haired curvy beauty from Denmark; customers love the collaboration of the both of them.
For the future, Rob has made much more plans. “There are still a couple of Plus Size models that I would love to take pictures of,” says the man who rarely takes off his cool sunglasses. He likes curvy women with a special charisma and he wants to present them to the world. This week he will be photographing a sexy blonde whom he discovered on the “Elf Fair”.
Rob van Pinxteren wants to change the common ideal of beauty, in his opinion all ages and weight have their own beauty.
In October he will be present at the Plus Size Days in Hamburg and who knows whom he will discover there for a photo shoot. We surely will be hearing from him.
