may 2012 inspired by Norman Rockwell


maiy 2012: inspired by the Amrican painter Norman Rockwell

Inspired by the American painter Norman Rockwell I decided to make a series with my youngest son Sven being a perfect model.

Norman  Rockwell (February 3, 1894 – November 8, 1978) was a 20th-century American painter and illustrator.
His works enjoy a broad popular appeal in the United States for their reflection of the American Culture.
Rockwell is most famous for his cover illustrations of everyday life
Scenarios he created for the Saturday Evening Post magazine and other magezines  for more than four decades.

I really love his work getting the story telling element presented  superbly into his wonderful drawings.
So with this in mind I asked my youngest son  to play the model for me.
Working in our small  living room he acted perfectly. We found some old stuff in our house and used that as props.
Sven came up with his own ideas and poses.
So it was great working with such an ideal model …


This one is called the Artist

    I love this series. I also LOVE the work of Norman Rockwell and have wanted to take photographs in the Rockwell style. Your work truly embodies the spirit of his work. The techniques are “perfect”. Did you teach yourself this technique through trial and error, or is there some guidance you can give. Are you only using Photoshop or do you also incorporate illustrator. Again—thanks for the awe inspiring work. I am very new to photography and the path seems overwhelming. Your work gives me hope and inspiration.

      Hey Casandra,
      Thanks for your comment No Illustrator has been used
      I learned the techniques myself and since Norman Rockwell is an artist pur sang.
      I tried to come a little bit into his direction But he is TOP
      regards Peter

    Désolée, je ne parle pas l’anglais, mais que votre site est super beau, et quelle recherche… je ne sais comment vous travailler avec CS certainement, pour obtenir cette colorométrie.
    Je tiens à féliciter aussi votre modèle qui est bien prometteur pour l’avenir.

    Bravo à vous deux !!! Et on sent une superbe complicité entre père et fils.
