BUENOS AIRES - A EUROPE OUT OF FOCUS! — Working With a Photographers Dream

Working With a Photographers Dream

When you work in the tropics, as I have done in Brazil, you're hot and sweaty when you go from one place to another, and you're hot and sweaty when you come to do the shoot.

When it's cold outside, it takes me a while to warm up under the lights and it takes the model even longer. They're usually naked, after all. It takes time to get into it, get the feel and flow of the shoot, but the results are often more interesting, deeper in some way, the mood changing as the temperature rises.

Argentina and Brazil in their opposite seasons offer different circumstances, but in one way they turned out to be very similar indeed: both staunchly Catholic, both that mixture of the old fashioned and ultra-modern, and in both countries the same reluctance to do nudes; microscopic, postage stamp sized bikinis, they can't get enough of them, but there's still a taboo on nature's best garment, the nude.

The shoot planned for today had already been set up through an online pre- casting. Photographers are a strange breed: we may be a bit jealous of each other, it's natural when you have the same passions as well as the same profession, but we do like to help each other when we can. That was certainly the case with my friend Walter Bosque, a lens man from Argentine's Cordoba, who was generous enough to offer me one of his best models.

He'd given her a big build up, always dangerous, but every word turned out to be true, and not only was she hip to the whole new nude revolution, she was just the kind of model I like to work with: petite and beautiful with positive energy and a charming smile.

We started off shooting at the hotel, an interesting location with the red velvet curtains and colonial style interior making a moody backdrop. It was the kind of place I could imagine Helmut Newton shooting in and anywhere that's good enough for Helmut is good enough for me.

In the Argentine everyone dances the tango. Girls walking down the street seem to be doing the tango. You see them practicing in the parks and open plazas, not merely a passion but an obsession that describes perfectly the exuberant spirit of the people. My model had that spirit, easy going, open and just a dream to work with. We moved from the hotel to the agency premises where another model was waiting for a casting. She joined the shoot; we ended up renting the agency's studio and worked there until they closed for the day.

Agencies when you first approach them are always very positive, but when it comes down to the actual casting, they just send old glam models that don’t have the energy I’m looking for – the energy that bring life into the photographs. Still, this turned out ton be a good day with some interesting shots and there are plenty of appointments in the diary for the coming week. With our supportive local team I am confident we'll crack it.

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.
