“I was really nervous for this shoot, it was my first nude, but when we started shooting and seeing the first results all the stress went away, it was just a relax and great time. I think it belongs in Volo, because the images are really classic, it is not only about the nude, but more about the total look and atmosphere.”

“My name is Steven Wolles, I’m a photographer from Antwerp (Belgium). I was always interested in photography from a young age.
I got to learn to know Anton Corbijn though the music of U2, and he inspired me in photography. So I bought my first digital Canon camera and started testing out all kinds of photography.
It is since a few years I am shooting models, because of my interests in fashion and commercial photography. Actually this shoot of Debby is my first nude one! I got in touch with her through a friend of mine. I was lucky when she was visiting Antwerp again. Because she lives in L.A. I took my chances to shoot her. We went for this photo shoot to a great location in Antwerp (Sauna Parijn).
Because this was my first nude shoot, it was a big test to get everything right, all the lightning the atmosphere, I was aiming for a romantic stylish glamour look. I’m really happy with the result, and it was great to work with Debby!”
