The Algarve Collection

Home Sweet Home

This is something of an unusual travel diary and the beginning of what is to be an unusual week. The diary is unusual because I am staying at home in the Algarve during a week dedicated to a pictorial biography of Marketa.

Marketa is the Czech femme fatale who zipped like a shooting star up the popularity charts after her appearance on Hegre-Art. Marketa is both playful and erotic with the symmetrically perfect features of a Greek goddess and a look in her eye that is almost unnerving. She is in so many ways the near perfect muse.

The Algarve is in the south of Portugal and is known as the California of Europe with the best white beaches and big waves that attract surfers from all over the world. The air is sweet and clean from the Atlantic winds and, inland, the fertile hillsides are dotted with olive trees, orange groves and vineyards. This is the kind of environment where Marketa will feel right at home.

During the coming days, we will publish a teasing glimpse of the thousands of images I plan to take.

Sunset Nudes

Sunset Nudes

Marketa has landed. As her flight was several hours late I gave her three minutes of acclimatization before the camera started rolling ;-)

The sun was setting quickly, dropping like a stone, and I hurriedly built a mini-Hollywood set in the garden, ringing the pool in high-powered lights.

Sometimes I like using flash at sunset, it gives you the ability to freeze the action and get a crisp, dramatic effect. Check out my favorite shot from today's short session with Marketa high in the air above the diving board...an angel with hidden wings, 1000s of watts of luminescence aimed at her naked body in the pitch black night.

Not only was my camera was drawn to Marketa: the mosquitoes started buzzing around, hungry for some action…but don’t worry, I showered her in repellent before we started, so though she appeared attractive from a distance, they were put off the scent as soon as they drew closer. But doesn't that apply to most things in life though...and, as I forgot to use the spray on myself, the insects feasted that night on Viking flesh! All in a night's work!

good nite much more marketa tomorrow

Day 2 of Marketa mania is winding down and I'm sitting here browsing 100s of images from today's sessions and, boy, it is a tough job narrowing it down to only 6-7 sneak previews when there are so many good shots to choose from.

The latest images are influenced by the many botanical gardens here in the Algarve, especially the displays of roses, but also today we could not avoid a splash in the pool...I especially like the image of Marketa heading for the deep end with her ass still sticking up from the water :-) enjoy!! Tomorrow we'll have some new locations and some weird ideas are taking shape…

Spring Cleaning

There is always a first time... and I am not referring to Marketa, but my trusted and dedicated assistant Justin from Amsterdam: also known as Mr. Generator.

He is the photo content manager of our network and keeps three Macs busy constantly sorting, numbering, generating, editing, adjusting and uploading photos to the various webmasters.

Today, though, he got a taste of the real thing. His job was to make sure Marketa's thin, white shirt was wet and transparent at all times and used a water pistol to keep hosing her down. He then had to hold the golden reflector to add highlights to the scene...and judging from his ear to ear smile he rather enjoyed this change to the normal routine. Check out the funny set shots from today's session included with a few iconic images of Marketa in top shape... especially after the nude work out video we shot.

We recorded a full bodywork program with a professional instructor present... abs, triceps, shoulders, back, biceps, legs... all pumped and all gloriously naked with glowing skin from the hard physical exercise and Portuguese heat...soon to be released on Hegre-Art... you don't want to miss this one. Tomorrow we are going to explore the beaches of Algarve.

good nite

Back to the Elements

Oil, sand and water are the key words on the last day of work on the Marketa Collection from the Algarve.

With the sun beating down at 40 degrees in the Celsius – that's like about 100F, the day turned out to be a hot, sticky and sweaty, perfect for exploring the many incredible caves and white beaches on the south coast ... and ideal to explore Marketa, who performed beautifully as always, even though I made her roll in the baking sand after she had rubbed tons of greasy oil all over herself.

I am sure she will find sand in the caves and crevices of her body openings for weeks to come...;-) This short but intense series with Marketa has come to a successful end. Marketa, thank you for working with me and good luck on future projects!

For surfers out there following the diary, I hope you enjoyed it and, to remind you once again, the Algarve in the south of Portugal has some of the best beaches in the world, and definitely the best climate in Europe.

Ciao

Petter
