Car sales on the grill!

June 21st, 2013

Shot a new image for Bilhallen this week. Their mascot, Stefan, was standing in front of a grill with a bunch of cars behind him. The agency had already found the location for the shot so all i had to do was to go there and start setting up the gear. I had the art director as astand in for Stefan as he would come when everything was all set. As the sun was on it’s happiest mood today Jimmy had to lay on the ground with a jacket over his head to be able to see the screen as i shot šŸ™‚

I had some issues with the reflections in the cars, but i shot all the cars individually so i fixed that in post!

Permobil again

June 7th, 2013

Permobil is a company which i have been working for quite some time now, and the other day i went out to their division for custom fitting to shoot some new pictures of their operation. The models, besides their chairs :), was of course the people that work there!

I lit the images not to advanced since it’s supposed to look natural. I had one light in front that was mixed with the ambient light and then one back light to make them pop out of the background. We did five images in total this day and now there is just some fixing to do before i can deliver them!

Campaign for Bolagsverket

June 5th, 2013

Last week i started shooting a new campaign for Bolagsverket (the Swedish Companies Registration Office) to promote their services over the Internet. I shot two persons at their head quarters in Sundsvall. Now i will continue with six more images on different places. I’ll start by heading off down to Lund, Landskrona and Halmstad next week.

Stockholm Photography Week 2013

June 2nd, 2013

I’m just about to pack and go back after a couple of great days at Fotografiska! I’ve attended the Commercial Portfolio Review, which basically is like speed dating but with international reviewers. Friday night they had something called Open Portfolio Night where reviewers, participants and any one interested could come and look at all the participants portfolios. I had a lot of people looking at my portfolio and a lot of nice words!

From the feedback i got during this weekend it feels like i’m on the right track šŸ™‚
