more portraits of youth

Here are a few more portraits of youth (konfirmasjonsfoto). This time it is Per Oskar, a cool character. I used my very portable Elinchrom ranger quadra with an octagon softbox for most of these, combined with natural light. Quite a bright day, so a few challenges along the way, but I think they turned out…

Sandra Jokic

Sandra Jokic is a personal trainer, as well as a student, dedicating a lot of time, energy and effort to her body. She has now left for Barcelona to participate in the IFBB Bikinifitness, European Championship. Just before Sandra left, I was able to get a couple of hours shooting at “Byneset”, where she lives. The…

Yesterday, we headed for a local forest next to where I live. We actually built a shed, using that as a changing room…needless to say, this…

The Player

Several years ago I came across a photo that inspired me to create “the player”, a photo by the image-genious Dave Hill. My main problem was finding a chess board that matched the idea, and I was fortunate to find one in a fashion shop, Carma. They had no problem lending me this one for…

Elisabeth

Here is a series from my shoot with Elisabeth Bolme last week. She is currently in training for a fitness competition, and in these she is 6 weeks away. We will follow up with another session just before the contest! All are composites, shot in my studio, and then worked into a more or less…
