Today I started a new project under the working title: Female athletes. The final goal is a series of composite photo’s with the female athlete as subject. Nowadays the ladies make us cheer. For example look at the Dutch women’s field hockey, handball, volleyball and of course the Dutch women’s soccer team. Don’t forget the individual Dutch athletes as Kiki Bertens, Daphne Schippers, Suzanne Schulting, Esmee Visser and of course “Miss Olympic Games” Ireen Wüst. And in our own region, the municipalities of Teylingen and Lisse, the ladies are also widely represented. Enough inspiration for a beautiful series.
I called in Leoniek van der Vliet for help and to guide me on this path. She is also an experienced photographer and very skilled in planning projects. We made a start while enjoying a cup of coffee with cake and, thanks to her, I have a good project plan. This gives me something to hold on to and it makes clear how I should tackle this project. I left the meeting even more motivated than I already was. I have to make sure that I don’t deviate from the schedule due to my enthusiasm. I’m always full of idea’s which is great but this flow of creativity should not interfere with this process. The project plan has a deadline!
