Erik travelled to Belvedere Palace, Vienna to capture an experience around the newest Crystal Cruises adventure, down the Danube River.

The series intends to depict how you FEEL arriving at the Belvedere Palace on one of the riverboats. It establishes an association with a feeling rather than a literal narrative.

“As we flew into Vienna, we knew it would be a dreary affair. The forecast had low cloud cover, fog and rain during the time we were there.
The Fog of the Danube River and the cold late winter weather was not going anywhere.
As a location photographer weather is always on my mind. We spend a lot of time planning our productions around weather patterns to make sure we can create the images we want without getting us and the client stuck on location.”

However, the team rolled with the poor weather and pitched en route shooting very early morning and late evening. This enabled the interior and artificial lights to light up the Palace, making the best of the bad weather.

This assignment was captured in 3 parts; The landscapes in Europe; people in Los Angeles; With the third layer created using CGI.

“The studio part was, in this case, a bit of a dance. Big dresses and a lot of movement where I’m observing, letting the talent be a part of the story and narrative rather than over-directing.
They move, I observe and capture.”

Elise makes our head spin with her latest personal project – ‘Space Oddity’.

The dark, but futuristic series draws on 50’s-60’s science fiction denoted through the cool metallic surfaces and dead pan expressions.

This series of creative imagery plays with a visualisation of the word Brainstorm. It was conceived as Elise pondered everyday sayings.

We are hoping there will be a follow up series on the visualisation of translation errors!
