Last week i shot the cover for LAJV Magazine again. This time it was three persons that were to be on the cover. They are opening three different shops in an old dance place here in town. One café, one clothing store and one place with retro furniture. My first idea was to shoot them as three super heros, but since the place they will be opening in is from the 60s and the furnitureplace deals with retro furniture, i thought it would be cool with some superheros that felt a little bit like Batman/Superman in the 60s!
So we went out and got some props and then for a couple of hours we created three retro super heros in my studio. And then with great help from Finn at LAJV the finished shot has exactly that feeling i was after!

Right now i’m taking a cup of coffee at Arlanda Airport waiting for my flight to depart. I’m heading for Nashville to shoot to new images for Permobil. It’s fast in fast out i can tell you, i’ll be home just in time for supper on friday!
I think it’s gonna be great! The agency has emailed me sketches, location- and props photos and it looks fantastic! I hope to be able to get a lot of behind the scenes photos.
My new bag which i wrote about the other day is great! But i don’t think i can fit anything more into it right now

Last week we shot the cover for Birsta City Magazine again, this time for the summer issue. The idea was to have a family hitchhiking to Birsta City on a typical summer road. All the wardrobe was ready, the models was booked and the location was scouted! When we got there it was kind of cold and maybe not typical summer weather, but at least it didn’t snow, or? Yep! Before we where all set with the lighting and props big fluffy snowflakes started falling together with an increasing wind, and there was only one word to describe it: crap!
The models was freezing and had to run into the cars to get warm under blankets and jackets. All the props flew around the round in the hard wind and i cut my hand so my camera was all bloody On top of all that the assignment was to illustrate a warm summerday on a typical summer road!
Everybody did a great job despite the weather, no matter how cold they where they screamed and acted as it was the hottest day all summer!
The second image we shot inside, thank god! And as i was setting up everything i could see the weather turning all mad outside the window. The snowing was now insane. As i saw it i thought to myself that we were really lucky since it could have been much worse out on the road!
I’ll post the finished result here when they are done!
