It’s in the Details

Here’s one of my favorite shots from the new collection of photographs from our visit to La Belle Vue in Neffiés, France. The devil is in the detail, as the idiom goes. And boy, were there a lot of details to document there. This particular photo is from what I beleive is a vintage room divider. […]

Coffee

I didn’t start drinking coffee regularly until I was about 25. There’s a likelihood that the habit began around the time when the infamous “Galliano Hotshot” swept the planet’s bars and restaurants. Up until then, I didn’t think coffee was much more than a bitter beverage for grownups. Swedes are one of the leading coffee […]

The French

Back from France. A country I’ve visited twice already this year and enjoy returning to whenever possible. Over the years, I think I’ve been to France around 20 times. Mostly to Paris, the Alps, Nice and Provence. Yeah, I really do dig the French. Outside of Paris, the French really embrace traditions with an intense […]

20th Wedding Anniversary

Today, while working in southern France, Charlotte and I celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We were married on this very day in 1998 at Brunnby Church, near Mölle-by-the-Sea, in southern Sweden. Charlotte’s family’s priest, Ola Stålnacke, performed the ceremony and there were around 100 invited guests at the church and wedding dinner which we hosted […]

First impressions at hotels

Here’s the first thing you see after entering through the gate at Le Belle Vue where we are staying for another night. I check in to around 25-30 different hotels per year. I’m already at 19 for 2018 and it’s just August. I’m guessing it’ll be closer to 35 hotels before the year is over. […]

La Belle Vue – Neffiès

This beautiful old gate is on the same street as where Charlotte and I are staying right now, at Yvonne and Micke’s BnB, La Belle Vue in Neffiès – a small village in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France. We’re about an hour from Montpellier and three and some change from Barcelona. I’ve been to Provence […]

August before September

August is a strange month here in Sweden. It’s officially the last full month of summer and though usually warm and meteorologically fair, August is when most folks return to the grind after their annual summer vacation. To me, August is kinda like March, just on the opposite side of the calendar year. It’s the […]

The Flamingo Princess

The young actress (and our neighbor’s lively and photogenique granddaugher) Julia Carlsten in a little film I put together yesterday afternoon. The flamingo(named Angel by Charlotte) arrived from Amazon UK the day before yesterday and I had little Julia in mind as I pressed the order button. Shot entirlely with an iPhone 7+, a GoPro […]

The Patio

The backyard patio at 10 pm last night – which at 25 C was likely the warmest summer night in Malmö in many, many years. The condo’s garden is huge whereas our little oasis is enclosed and cozy. In the eight years we’ve lived on Sundspromenaden, 2018 is easily the summer when we ate most […]

Under the Öresund Bridge

For the past few summers, Charlotte and I have ventured of the reservation (Västra Hamnen) and biked past the camping area Sibarp, under the Öresund Bridge and a few klicks beyond. My agenda is clear and always the same; try to synchronize the visit with evening light so that I can get a few usable […]

Worachak

Ah…Worachak, one of my favorite places to shoot in all of Asia. Never get tired of the diesel and brake oil fumes that hover over this Bangkok neighborhood. Not sure what’s going to happen to it when Chinatown once expands southward. Which I suppose is why I feel so inclined to shoot and film there. […]

My Favorite Lighthouse

The goal with this photo was initially to get a dusk view of my favorite lighthouse from above. It’s located near Malmö’s old harbor and hasn’t been in commission since 1936 – but it’s still a great monument of the city’s shipbuilding past and a popular tourist attraction. A few years ago, during an open […]

The Plunge

From last night’s cooling off plunge into the Öresund – just as the sun was setting. Shot with the Gopro Hero 6 action camera at 240 frames per second – in so-called “slo-mo” mode which, together with image stabilization, is one of the camera’s most impressive features.

How to take drone photos

I often get the question, isn’t hard to fly a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicles), let alone take drone photos that are commercially and artistically viable? Whether you like it or not, drone photography is here to stay. I’ve unmistakably embraced this enabling technology and saw the creative opportunities as soon as it appeared on my […]

Vejbystrands Hamnen

Since we got here, I’ve  focused a good many hours on shooting for the forthcoming Vejbystrand book and today was no exception. The afternoon light was just absolutely beautiful, possibly thanks to the cleaner atmosphere which I think came after last night’s well-needed rainfall. Aside from the aerial shots, I’m shooting mostly tight with either the […]

Vejbystrand

The heat is on – even here in Vejbystrand where I’m at right now to add images to my book project. I shot the above view from about 110 meters from where where we had drinks before dinner this evening with the always enjoyable Benestam/Pieplow family. Lugging around my camera bag in this super-dry, super-hot […]

Marstrand

Just started updatiing the Travel section here on the site. Eventually, my buddy Yigit will make the design changes to the Video section, too. Above’s the video from the enchanting island of Marstand that I produced for www.airlinestaffrates.com

Öresund Timelapse

Yesterday afternoon while the sun was beaming from a partially clouded sky, I sat for a while on the boardwalk just outside of our condo with a Gopro Hero 6 in timelapse mode (one photo every 10 seconds) placed on a big rock in front of me. I then looped the sequence in Final Cut […]

Morning Loop

To enjoy a bit of solitude here in Västra Hamnen right now, you have to get up supremely early. Which Charlotte and I did this unusually calm, windless morning. Admittedly, the morning would of been even nicer had I not brought the drone along. Then again, I wouldn’t of captured the above morning loop…

Summer Night in Malmö

From last night’s folk fest here in Västra Hamnen. I’m thoroughly pleased with all the visitors…but have to divulge that I am looking forward to when there is a little more space for a spontaneous afternoon nap along the boardwalk and less crowded evening swims. Most of Sweden is currently enjoying a “heatwave” with temperatures […]

Titanic

Back in Malmö again after a few days working in Tylösand. I’ve been to several of Sweden’s most desireable beaches along the coastline and on Gotland. Heck, I’ve even seen a few of the most popular beaches around Sweden’s largest lake, Vänern. Bu the amount of visitors to Tylösand blew me away. It was nothing […]

Meanwhile, at Tylösand

Currently in Tylösand to produce a thing about this uniquely beautiful coastline. Surprisingly, I’ve actually never been here before.

A Milestone

At 30, I was honestly surprised that I was still around to celebrate that milestone. Not that I’d been doing too much crazy shit. No hardcore drugs (if you don’t count a one-off occasion in Forest Hills/Queens/New York back in 1986). There’s was, however, a lot of reckless partying. Way too much. Especially during my […]

Model Mayhem

Here’s a contrasting image from a creative workshop I had with model Ploy Tyrell in the automotive neighborhood of Worachak near Chinatown in Bangkok. Ploy’s a professional model I hired through Model Mayhem – a global network for photographers, models, makeup artists and a plethora of other folks working within visual arts. Once you become […]

The Bike Shop

This is from the bike shop Västra Hamnens Cyklar here in Västra Hamnen that the family frequents from time to time. Insofar that it makes sense, I try hard to support local businesses. The small ones in particular. No data to back this up, but Malmö might actually have the most bicycles per capita in […]
