Well, the other day it was time for yet another cover for LAJV Magazine. This time it was Anna Frisk, the CEO of the festival Gatufesten. This year the festival celebrates its 25:th year so what would be better than to use ballons and cakes in the picture!:)
The weather was really on our side this day! The sun shined like it never had shined before. And though i totally forgot to charge my battery packs the evening before, i got time just before the shot to charge them just enough to have power for the shoot, but the red lights and the warning signal was flashing and beeping like never before in the end!
The light setup was just is i use to have it, but during the last shoots i’ve stopped using the grids on the back lights as it gives a little bit more “Kablaam!”
A couple of weeks ago i made the shortest music video ever! Well, not it was not really me making it. Corroded had shot their new music video in Stockholm and a couple of additional shots where needed to complete it. So of i went to the fabulous parking garage in town My actor for the day, Bjarne from Corroded, did a excellent job rocking in front of my camera to the music coming from ur very small stereo!
The finished video looks great! You will see it soon!
So, all the images for Permobil is now finished and delivered!
Unfortunately i’m not allowed to post any images before they “go public” with them, and that will probably not happen before september!
But as soon as i can i will post them here!
About a week ago i went up to Sättnabanan (a dragracing strip) where me and my assistant/son was going to shoot new pictures for hard rock band Corroded. Well, i took some time getting there, i went in the completely wrong direction so we got there about 40 minutes after we where supposed to!
The theme for the shots was, of course, a little bit of the race car/motorcycle-look. But we took some shots with just the band as well.
Besides a smashe lamp Profoto lamp head the shoot turned out really cool. We had some rain just waiting to pour down on us but i didn’t come until we where on our way home!
I’ll post the finished images as soon as they’re ready!
The last picture for this time in France! Yesterday we went up to Annecy, where we was to shoot on a golf course. All night before we left, I had a “charging party” with myself in my hotel room. 6 battery packs to the Profoto generators were all to be charged and only three outlets … Well, it went well anyway
When we got to the golf course we went past the golf shop and got some props. I just had to ask the girl that worked there, where she had learned English so well, her response was “I’m from Scotland”: D
Then we went with the golf cart to select the best place to be among the 19 holes, of course, it was the closest to the hole that we finally decided on after half an hour of bumping around the track.
The shoot went great despite a number of passing by golfers who probably thought we were really a pain the …. I think it could maybe have something to do with me screaming during the shoot, but i’m not sure …
Everyone did a great job in the scorching heat, even the Jack Russell dog who acted as himself seemed to enjoy it. And if you’re wondering why one of the guys in the group picture is standing and pointing down, he is saying “sit” to the dog that just when the camera went off, decided to leave the place
Now i just have to pack everything again and head back home to Sweden and the holi … no, i’ll have to work a little bit more …
