2015 – NEW opportunities

My first funshoot in 2015! Stylist Mats Heitmann presented me with an idea late last year, and finally we were able to make it happen! Stian, the model, had his body painted, and all I had to do was contact a local nightclub to get access (Studio 26). Stian is working his way toward fitness competition this spring, and yeah, he is in shape already, but to create a more dramatic effect I had to replace the abs at this point. No doubt, he will look even better than this shortly!
And, having this arranged, I got in touch with Nicole Sunde from Trendmodels (www.trendmodels.no). She was able to get there for some spontaneous work as well.
Here are a few examples 🙂

wet dancer

Yesterday I had the pleasure of shooting another dancer. Ann recently graduated a professional dancer, and this was kind of a promotion shoot for her, providing something a little different.
Again, I visited a nearby (as in close to my studio) location and we made our way through assorted vegatation to find decent spots. Also, we found a small creek, and discovered there was mud underneath. Knee-high in water, I found myself sinking and had to work fast.
Anyway, here are some of the photos made yesterday, and there is more to come.

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 weather was constantly changing, and windy (cold), but we had to make the best of it. Sandra proved easy to work with, as we had no plan, but played it by air.

Here are a few examples from this day, and hopefully I will work with her again when she returns from Spain (with a trophy!!). I wish her the best of luck.
And…please visit her BLOG for updates on her Barcelona appearance!

Cold & Rain

Ever since my last shoot with Elisabeth Bolme, before she entered the fitness competitions (Sandefjord Open and Oslo GP), we had planned to do something just after stage weekend.
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 was a cold experience for her, and we went for effectiveness! Here are a few…
