IKEMEN (ē´k´mɛn): Japanese Slang
"REALLY, REALLY, RIDICULOUSLY GOOD LOOKING PEOPLE"
Julia Lang is the 25 year old blogger behind www.geeksndfashion.com. She currently resides in Berlin, Germany but calls Machame, in Tanzania, Africa, her home. Presenting here is a fashion shoot she created and named "WE OWN THE UNIVERSE".
"I just met Julia and I think she is a lovely and very ambitious person that I really like and
for me it is always interesting to work with these kind of people who are in love with what they do, just like I am in love with what I do." said Nico Ernst, an enthusiastic, 19 year old fashion and beauty photographer based in Berlin, Germany.
A great shooting is all about the concept, the spirit of one's team and the ambitious work behind it.
Therefore we called the shooting " WE OWN THE UNIVERSE"
It is not just the title of the shooting, it is an all life spirit.
Never be afraid of your dreams and your goals.
One of my favorite quotes goes : "Don't ever let someone tell you that you can't do anything. Not even me. You got a dream, you have to protect it. When people can't do anything themselves, they're going to tell you, that you can't do it. If you want something, then go get it." - Will Smith (The Pursuit of Happiness, Film)
"I am looking forward to doing further projects with Julia. We definitely had a great time shooting the photos and I am pretty sure this won't be the last shooting the universe has seen of us." said Nico Ernst, the man behind the camera.
A special and huge THANK YOU goes out to the whole team who made that shooting and that day so special for me. The atmosphere at the studio was calm, fun and everyone shared love for each other. People who never met before but connect for creativity. Such a beautiful thing!
