I haven't been around here for a very long time. It has been, frankly, dead silent here on the blog. And it is not without a proper reason, lately things have been going very fast and the situation has become different, not necessarily in a bad way. Basically I am involved in a lot of projects which I will, sooner rather than later, reveal. And I'm shooting, a lot. This last year I've been shooting more than I have in all my life and i cannot wait to show you all.
But here's some previews of my recent works. Also, in June I'm moving to Stockholm indefinitely, which I am very excited for. I'll keep you posted.
At Stockholm Fashion Week right now, it's very hectic and lots of new impressions and people - as it should be.
Another portrait of Saarah.Tomorrow I'm off to a very very big city to meet a very fabulous friend.
Recently I shot a series of pictures of my classmate Sarah. And this is an outtake that didn't fit much with the other pictures that actually might just be my favorite.
This weekend we had an exhibition in Gamleby where I exhibited these two photos named "Månsken" which is the swedish word for moonlight. The photos are thought out to be an image of sisterhood, in a very sad but loving way.
So I take inspiration from Cami (who recently stopped blogging, which is a shame since she had one of the few blogs I occasionally read) and create a little board from some of my recent instagram photos.

Some of my favorite fashion photographers.
Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott
And as you might guess there are plenty of others, but these were the ones that came to mind.
And their work is genius.
This is a part of a sixties inspired story I shot with Sarah last saturday. Still working on it though, this is just a sketch of the final picture, so will show the full story in a couple of days.
So yesterday I tried product photography out and today I retouched it and tried to challenge myself and my photoshop skills and this is how it turned out. It was so much more fun than I originally thought and I will definitely dig a bit deeper into this field. Below you can see the original raw-converted photo.
These are some photos I took of my classmate Emma while trying to experiment with light, which is so much fun. Here in Gamleby I spend most of my time just shooting, retouching and listening to people talk about photography. And that's perfectly fine by me. Today I spent a few hours practising cutting movies, which is a subject I've basically just started out with. We'll see if I actually be able to do something worth showing.
One of my favorite persons to shoot is the very lovely Lisen. Here are some unpublished archive pictures I shot last spring.
This is photos from my first series shot here in Gamleby. Not entirely happy with the retouch since I haven't been as thorough as I wish but figured that you can probably work on perfection forever. And besides, I haven't been showing you guys any new work for quite a while.
