CITYLADE

My last few months have been rather quit as to producing new material. Well, I did do one cool job for Headspin advertising (City Lade). Lots of work, but good fun and great people as well as exposure. Here are a few images from this work.

I look forward to working with Headspin in the near future, as we have plans for Mother´s day and hopefully Valentine!!

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 the weekend. Well aware of its’ value ($1500), I transported the board CAREFULLY.
Another issue was finding the model, as the original model called in sick 2 hours before shooting…I originally wanted a blonde model, but I guess the dark Joana worked perfectly. Thanks to Mats Heitmann, she looked as “fierce” as she should be for this job.
Here is my chosen exposure, with the development settings.

The background (chess patterned) was already made in photoshop. I also shot a few pictures of the king, with the idea to get this in the end result.

Of course, the editing process was time consuming and difficult, and the end result was not perfect. But at least I got it done:-). Sometimes, following up on ides is a satisfaction in itself!

Nina & Arild

I guess I have been a little busy lately, neglecting to congratulate Nina and Arild on their wedding day April 26th 2013!

It was a chilly but very nice experience, working with this couple and I believe both them and I had great time. At least, they seemed to be comfortable to enjoy an hour break from the otherwise at times stressful day a wedding can be.
Here are some examples from our time together!
