"I'm Tycho, a Netherlands based photographer mainly doing fashion, glamour, nude and editorial work. I've been doing photography for quite some time now, although it's only been about two years since I'm doing shoots with models, which I love to do. In the beginning it was difficult to get people excited to collaborate because I didn't have a portfolio. I think a lot of people who just start out can relate to that, but once I got a few shoots, more and more came and the past two years has gone by really quickly building up a decent portfolio.
What once started out as a hobby is much more to me today. I love meeting and working with like-minded people in (small) teams to create beautiful art for portfolio, publications or art exhibitions. The series for Scorpio came together very fast and smoothly. I had Britta the model on Facebook for some time and we had spoken in the past. Recently I saw new photos of her showing online and decided to get in touch with her again to see if she was interested in collaborating with me. Britta responded very enthusiastic and even brought in Malou, the make up artist for this project.
I wanted to do some plain and simple natural portraits, working with a piece of cloth but Malou had really great ideas and as we were bouncing around ideas the project got bigger and bigger, eventually resulting in multiple different looks and styles. The majority of the jewellery used for the series is from Culture Mix, a local store. In the end we were all very excited about this project and the results and I'm sure we'll be working together on other cool projects in the future again."
