On my way home from a portrait workshop I met this girl on a bridge and asked if I could take her photo right there. I’m very happy she said yes.
This summer I took a portrait workshop with Knut Koivisto at Fotografiska in Stockholm. Here are some of the portraits I did for homework before the final day. Many thanks to my friend Pontus who had patience with me and showed me his true rock’n'roll colors. And many thanks to Knut for lots of inspiration...
Jonas were attending the same workshop in portrait photography at Fotografiska as me. We did some practicing together and this was the result.
Maybe you’ve already realized that I like blurry, floaty dance images? Well, here’s some more. The lady wearing that black skirt and moving her legs like a goddess is Emma. Also take a look at some portraits of her. These photos has become a tribute to the fantastic song Backstage with the modern dancers by Great Lake Swimmers....
Emmas light red hair, fair skin and delicate expressions together with the black & white dress and big portions of natural daylight made me wish this photo shoot would never end. You can also watch her dance in this post.
These are pictures from a dance competition in Stockholm. I sneaked in front among the other photographers but instead of using a flash to capture frozen poses I brought my monopod and used the existing light to get floaty, blurry pictures with lots of movement.
Me and Karim were asked to be photographers on the wedding of Naomi and Kevin in Nottingham, UK. I followed the groom and Karim the bride while they were getting ready and it was fun to have the opportunity to cover all angels at the ceremony. We had a fantastic day and so did Naomi...
These two brothers are really dear to me and I wanted to capture them in action – playing, hugging, fighting. They are so much in the moment and it was a pleasure documenting their world for a short while.
With Emma and Peter I took pictures both of them getting ready for and celebrating their big day. It was a fun and challenging day, taking the bride and groom for a long walk on Långholmen to get some great pictures.
Last time in Morocco we visited Karim’s cousin Khaled’s wedding. I had only my 50mm lens and no zoom and was pretty frustrated. The result was a different kind of wedding shoot.
