Now my editorial “taking over Stockholm” is released in the new issue for Elegant Magazine. We used the subway stations as environment to get a “grunge” feeling, but still clean. Also, I tend to show women more with an attitude, because women rock and we should be portrayed as strong! I worked with a new model, Linca, in Stockholm and the result turned out they way we wanted. If the magazine is happy, I’m happy. I love meeting new people when I shoot, in contrast to working on my own on personal projects. Having the opportunity to work with new women almost every shoot is so cool. We are inspirational, strong and focused. Anyway, what do you guys think about the editorial?
My latest work for BeautyMute Magazine is now out. We did a inspirational lookbook editorial. So pleased with the result! I did this shoot when I was in Stockholm a few weeks back and have been waiting since for the issue to come out.
Above is some of my product photographs. Not the typs of photography I do the most but i truly enjoy it. Spending hours getting the surface perfect and getting the color exact is so important. The retouch is what makes the product stand out.
I would say that the wedding season officially has begun. Spring and summer is the most popular parts of the year for weddings and I can see why, the nature and light is beautiful. I’ve done a couple of weddings but since it hasn’t been my main genre to shoot I haven’t posted that many. Above is some of my fave shots from weddings I’ve done in Los Angeles.
Last Friday I did a shoot in Hollywood with the crazy cool The Dudesons for the Finnish newspaper Hufvudstadsbladet. They are kind of the Finnish equivalent of Jackass. What we did can soon be seen in Hufvudstadsbladet in Finland or online. It was a fun shoot and they are truly extreme and funny. We found a small Range Rover to use in the shoot, plastic toy car and also an amazing old purple car that added something special to the photos.
They told us about the time they filled their pool with popcorn and jumped in it from the balcony. They have the video of that on their YouTube Channel. They have so many fun videos so check it out!
I’m the worst when it comes to writing here. Even though I want to share and are excited about it I forget or don’t take the time to do it when I can. Anyway, here I am. So, what have I’ve been up to lately? Well, I’ve done some really great photoshoots with new clients and I will post photos here and also in my portfolio page. I did one shoot with a Swedish designer who I really, really like. Cecilia Blankens makes the most amazing shoes in the absolute best quality and on top of that she is a really cool and successful power-woman. I think she is a great inspiration and really ambitious. Looking forward to work some more with her!
This weekend I did a shoot down at Santa Monica beach. The weather was great and we had some wind to work with. Even though the sun came up high pretty fast we could work with it and ended up with some nice photos.
I’ve been editing the photos from the event I shot this weekend. I’m almost done. When the editing is finished I always look through the photos and then export them in the right size. Dropbox it the option I use for transferring my files to my clients. I’ve used that for a few years, but I’m starting to wonder if there is a better or easier way for the clients? What do you use for transferring files to clients?
This saturday was a new day with work for me. I drove down to Manhattan Beach to shoot a child’s birthday party. It was a fantastic day for an outdoor pool slash Frozen themed birthday party. There were a lot of guest, both children and parents could enjoy the event. It went really well and it looked like everyone were having fun. Birthday party’s are always fun to shoot. I ended up with over 600 photos that now needs to be edited down to a reasonable number, that will display the feeling and the event the right way. I’ll give you a peak of the photos tomorrow.
