Hello all. I'm shooting a fashion story with Hannah on friday in Stockholm and we have an opening for a stylist assistant. The only requirements are that you are crazy into styling and speak pretty good english. Mail me at email@example.com
I spent my first christmas away from home in the little beach town Robe. There we had lovely seafood and strong winds, as it should be on the coast. We also met this little cute sealion in the harbour who eagerly demonstrated his acrobatic water skills, he was adorable.
Then me, Deni and her lovely parents went to the beach. It was a bit too chilly to swim that day so we just walked around the beach looking for pretty seashells.
And after trying out surfing in the town Victor Harbour, which was surprinsingly enjoyable (I loved it actually), we went to the Zoo Urumbirra. There the kangaroos roamed free throughout the whole zoo and you could pet them and feed them as much as you liked. They were so gentle and adorable.
The koala was scary though and cared more about the eucalyptus than us.
Then we went for a walk on an island where there were supposed to be loads of penguins to be found. We didn't see any.
A couple of days later I went home. It was a long trip, really long (Australia, Malaysia, UK and then finally Sweden) and as soon as I stepped on the plan I knew I was going to miss Australia terribly. And now, two months later I really do. Australia is an amazing country and its people likewise. I hate that it's so far away, otherwise I'd be planning my next trip as soon as I could.
About three weeks ago I asked you guys to tell me about yourselves. And believe me, it was so amazing to read about all of you. I never expected my readers to have so many different interests, dreams and hopes. However, one thing I noticed is that many of you seem to think that you're not good enough for doing what you dream of, or that there's so many others that are better. But we all started at nothing. I, myself, want to become a fashion photographer. I've wanted that for four years now, and have no intentions of becoming something else. I can't imagine myself doing something else.
I've been told that it's probably just a whim of mine and that I'll regret spending so much time on photography, because there are so many that want to become one. Why should I be one of them? Maybe I should keep it as a hobby and do something else instead. And I understand that. The odds are against me. But I don't believe that I can't do anything. Don't get me wrong, I don't really consider myself good enough, not yet. But I do know that if I work hard enough and never give it up, one day I will be. And if you really, really want it, you will be, too.
Some unpublished shots from a shoot last october.
My friend Hannah recently honoured me by interviewing me for her a-mazing fashion blog The (Fashion)hash where she features photographers once every month, known as hash of the month. So if you'd like to take a look and read about how I view fashion photography and a few facts you perhaps didn't know. Head over to the interview!
Yesterday in pictures.
Lara was a ghost.
Philip was serious.
Lina was happy. (much to my dismay, there's a distinct rivalry between us two haha)
And then Philip and Julia even more so.
I was quite happy too. (I had this lovely tea at this lovely café, what could go wrong?)
Philip was silly.
And Lara was patient, waiting for the bus.
And that was yesterday.
