BUENOS AIRES - A EUROPE OUT OF FOCUS! — All Settled In and Ready to Shoot!

All Settled In and Ready to Shoot!

When porters see me arriving at airports they rub their hands with glee and start thinking about where they're going to take their wife out to dinner that night.

As a photographer traveling overweight goes with the territory. And those silver cases filled with cameras, lighting, light-meters, computers and props weigh so much you need a team of porters to shift them, money well spent if you want to shoot without a dislocated shoulder and something learned from long, often painful experience.

In the old days after graduating in the United States and during my first journeys in Eastern Europe, I lugged everything I could carry in a shoulder bag and though it was fun and functional shooting on the run, you need the right tool for the job to get the best results. The more you get tooled up, the more you have to tote around in that shoulder bag and one day you say to yourself, it's time to settle down and get a studio.

But you can't travel with your studio on your back and when Luba and I set out for Argentina I was so concerned making sure I didn't forget anything, it went out of my mind that it was mid-winter in the Southern Hemisphere. We touched down at six on a bitter cold morning, Luba had a big red shawl but I was wearing nothing but a tee-shirt, cargo pants and bare feet. It was freezing. "First thing we have to do is go shopping," I said to Luba, and of course her sleepy eyes lit up.

What was pleasantly warming was the welcome committee at the airport, the people who had invited us to do a shoot in the Argentine capital all waiting with bright smiles and good English. I'd read in the Buenos Aires Time Out that making friends in Argentina "is a process that can take anywhere up to ten minutes." First impressions, the claim was right on.

The morning was waking as we drove into the city, the sun low in the sky and putting a silvery blue tinge of light on the glass in the skyscrapers. We passed the famous Teatro Colon, rode down streets that looked more European than South American and finally checked into the Faena Hotel, a modern place with the architect's hand in every corner, thick velvet curtains on every window and the 38-year-old Señor Faena with his partner Philippe Starck making sure we had everything we needed. In the bullring, when the matador does a good pass with the bull its called a good faena, a good job, and Señor Faena has brought the quality to bare on the hotel that carries his name.

We grabbed a few hours sleep, hit the shopping malls at midday and returned to the Faena snug in angora sweaters, new jeans and gaucho boots; when in Rome you do as the Romans. In Argentina a touch of the cowboy prepares you for the traditional big lunch: fish for me, and a plate of the best beef grown anywhere on the planet for hungry Luba. Oh, yeah, and a glass of Argentine red; I'm partial to a good Rioja, but these new world wines are growing on me.

Casting was set for three o’clock and the bell boys had a hard time – not to say a great time - controlling the traffic coming up to our room. I was pleased there were so many girls who wanted to strut there stuff, it's what I expected from Buenos Aires, but while true Evitas are as rare as the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, it's the search that makes it all worthwhile.

Hasta mañana.

Petter

exhibition in barcelona
hello Petter, i really like your pictures of luba and the exhibition in barcelona was just great. simple and stylis.. but let me tell you without hurting your feelings , i did not like the framework. before you tell me, that this simple look was on purpose, be sure i know that but something different, just like your work style, would have been given a more special impresson to these masterpieces. what i'm doing i not so usual - i'm happy for that - and that is the reason i send this response to you. i am a frame artis and if you are interested in my work, or you think we can work together at your next exhibition i'll be glad to go further with this. regards sonny szekely
Hola
Congratulations! es muy buena
Congratulations!
You must be so proud, Petter. It looks like a fantastic exhibition, and I wish I could be there. Barcelona is one of my favorite cities anywhere, and to see one of your exhibitions would make the visit perfect. You are obviously in love with Luba--mind, body, and soul--and I thank you for sharing your vision of her with the rest of us. I love seeing a photo on display and knowing that it's from the same series as the first picture of her I ever saw. (You don't forget the first time you see Luba.) Best of luck to you both; you obviously deserve it. - Jackson
Luba in Barcelona
I am so pleased for you (both), and I wish you every success with your Exhibition. Luba as a model is one in a million, and you as a potographer of the female human form are also one in a million. NEVER, EVER succumb to any pressurwe to include males in your photo sessions. K.P.
7th May
Dear Petter, I miss your e-card to that "World Masturbation Day"! I found that date on the website of Betty Dodson, USA. www.bettydodson.com under sexual politics. Would you be so kind to design a e-card especially for that important day because everyone would like it and do it. Thanks for all your wonderful picts! Harald

I cant believe it
Peter you past from argentina and i know it late. My friend Pancho told me about it in your last day here. He told me because he print your things with me. I lost my chance to know you and get you autograph in one of your books. Maybe next time.
Buenos Aires
First Lizhan, then Mirta .. now Buenos Aires Day 3 - 05. I'm fussy about faces and hair .. can't wait to see more of her .. red-eye and all!
very very fun
Thank you very much for all beautys in your works.
Day 2 model
Tacha is, without a doubt, the most beautiful woman you have ever presented, and that is a difficult thing to say because you have presented so many beauties. Hope we see more of her. Your photo quality is far better than seen anywhere else as well. cupcake
Eva Peron Nude
Hi Ravic. I base my statement above on various serious articles on the net.Here is an example: Whether Eva prostituted herself or not has never been substantiated. Critics of the government in the late 40's and early 50's claimed they had pornographic photos of the young Eva, but none ever materialized. What is known is that Eva did have a succession of lovers which aided her in getting better parts in the theater. Survival and hunger can be a powerful factor in allowing one to trade favors of sex for better acting roles. Eva was not above that. One lover that did wonders for Eva's career was her relationship with the owner of Argentina's leading film magazine, Emilio Kartulovic. Eva benefitted much from this relationship and finally roles that were always closed to her began to flood in. From then on hunger disappeared. There are also many stories spinning on how she bought up complete print runs of mags featuring her semi nude to clean up her past before marrying Mr. Peron...
pechasou
Hi.Nelson and Pablo are right.I agree with them.We cannot pay for this beautiful site.Perhaps you can do something.Two for the price of one.This is something any argentinian will understand.If Evita did nudes,try to find one and post it for the world.Regards.Ravic
Argentina
The brunette is simply GORGEUS!!!!!!
Aroticity

picture 1_10
I would love to see more of this girl. I think she is a beauty. Keep up the Good work! Cheers Marc
Next time visit us in summer
Hi Petter. Cold weather? I've already warned you we are in winter. ;-) Perhaps next time you come to Argentina you chose summer, and please let me know that a few months before so I could find a good model here in Rosario (the city of the most beautiful girls in Argentina, still very shy). And please don't go to Bs.As. there are a lot of very beautiful places in Argentina with pretty landscapes. Pablo and Nelson are right, to be a member of your site is very expensive for us. So I'll try to win the photo contest in NEW NUDE to have a free pass to see your (excellent I suppose) work with Argentinean girls. Regards Ramiro (amateur photographer) , Rosario, Argentina
Huh?
Wow Petter, tomorrow is a new day, and you always seem to pull something out of your hat; no matter how bad it may seem...GOOD LUCK!
good lights
Hello Luba and Petter, I hope we`ll see some shots of the girl on pic "day1_04". She`s my fav. May be a bit proud but with the best figure. I wish both of you good and right light for everything you will take. Regarding Scaramouche
Wow!
Petter definitely take a few sessions with the girl in photo's 6,7 and 9, she is gorgeous and has an INCREDIBLE body, I would love to see more of her on the site!
greetings
Nice to see you are visiting my country petter. Walk around Recoleta area, or Santa Fe street. Go around the comercial shooping centers, go to the Parks, argentineans women are much more beautiful than the pictures you post.

GREAT!
Ugh! Some of them you shouldn't even bother casting... Argentina is packed with beautifull women, I bet it won't be hard to find a gorgeous girl up to your standards. Grrr!!! I would kill to have your job!
Sass
Sass can mean a lot of things, but here are the two most common meanings: 1. Lively and spirited; jaunty. 2. Stylish; chic If you think of the word sassy then you have the right idea though both are commonly used.

Hi. I'm glad that you spend a great time in Buenos Aires. I was born here and I love this place, and it's good to have some happy tourist around. I hope you'll come back soon.

I'd like yo know if a can get a free membrecy. Why? I have no reason, but to be an exited fan of your style and photografy in general. I have no credit card and no trust in internet money transferences.

Well, I really have no hope to get an affirmative answer. But it would be a nice surprise.

Congratulation for yor work, it's very impressive.

Joel Bek

PS: Caro is the best!

Puerto Rico
Hi, Petter,
Have you ever been in Puerto Rico????
One fact to tease you;
We have 4 (four) Miss Universe winners.
Not many places have that many.
People say that our women are very special and beautiful.
Im an amateur photographer (hoping to get pro very soon) who likes to shoot models and ordinary girls alike. I admire your work, and helps me to learn how to better shoot women.
If you ever plan to come here, let me know to see how can i help you.
I can bet this will be another great experience for you.

Sincerely,
Jan

About Argentina
Facts about BUENOS AIRES - A EUROPE OUT OF FOCUS!

What can you say about Argentina?



Well, everything. It has everything, after all: vast plains and impenetrable deserts, glistening lakes, thundering glaciers and some of the greatest waterfalls on the planet.



Immigrants flocked to Argentina from all over Europe and this blend of people and cultures has created the sexiest dance in the tango, the most cosmopolitan of capitals in Buenos Aires and, as Petter Hegre's expedition reveals, some of the most beautiful girls in the world today.

That's not to mention the juiciest beef and some of the best red wines you will ever taste.
