Tango Dancers

From last night at Scaniaplatsen here in Västra Hamnen where dozens of summer clad Tango dancers swung each other around rhythmically accompanied by another gorgeous sunset. We been enjoying outstanding weather for few weeks now and the forecast for the beginning of June looks promising. While wading hip deep through a tsunami of emails from […]

Sunny side of Västra Hamnen

Shot this calm sunny side of Västra Hamnen earlier this morning from the bank of a small manmade island called Saltimporten in Malmö harbor. I used this exact spot when I hired a drone pilot for the cover shoot of the book, Västra Hamnen 2014 and I’ve had an urge to return ever since buying […]

Österlen

For a bit more than 20 years, Charlotte and I have made excursions during the spring to Österlen, the beautiful agricultural region on Sweden’s south-east coast. Spring is the ultimate time of year for visits to Österlen. Most places are open on weekends and the hordes of tourists from Stockholm are thankfully nowhere to be […]

Sweden’s Sommelier 2017

Longtime friend/creative collaborator and Swedish Sommelier 2017, Erik Schneider and I spent an hour yesterday afternoon in the beautifully bright yellow canola fields outside of Malmö. Shot on the Sony A7III with the 18mm and 85mm. Aerial shots courtesy of the Mavic.

Chat with Restauranteur

This is from a casual chat I had with our neighborhood’s newest restauranteur, Eduardo Mondolfi of the Italian eatery, V.E.S.P.A. G.R.A.N.D.E.. I feel confident that Eduardo and his team will add both substantial culinary and atmospheric value to Västra Hamnen in a way that either of the previous owners of the restaurant were capable of […]

Turtles on Seychelles

Met these creepy dudes on the Seychelles last summer. Not sure if they’re tortoises or turtles. Seem to have missed that class (too) in Biology… I can, however, assure that those I met during our ten day stay were surprisingly curious and relatively harmless. As slow as they were, though, if you got too close […]

Malmö Live at 100m

Malmö Live from about 100 meters. Still fascinated and impressed by how today’s drone technology allows me to with relative ease capture totally new and exhilarating perspectives. Each time I hit the “Home” button on the RC unit, I feel increasingly confident that my little capable quadcopter will actually find its way back to a […]

Sunset Season

After several gorgeous evenings without much wind, I feel comfortable proclaiming that were now ostensibly in the sunset season. At least here in Sweden, where the sun has been so rare for the past six months and like after most winters, we’d almost given up hope about ever seeing it again. Once again, everything is […]

Bamboo Yoga Retreat

From my recent visit to India to shoot a promotional video for the award-winning Bamboo Yoga Retreat as well as an editorial version for Airline Staff Rates. The filming process was fairly straightforward and it was a real pleasure working with the retreat’s staff and management. The story concept was to follow Myria, one of […]

Vackra Smycken

Charlotte has just launched a brand new range of earrings, bracelets, necklaces and rings at her shop over at Vackra Smycken (which literally means beautiful jewelry in Swedish). Not that I know much about jewlery, but there are several pieces in Charlotte’s new batch that are just absolutley beautiful works of art. Check out the […]

Malmö

Malmö. I shot the scene yesterday through a wireless remote control unit that connected me to the lens of a really, really small camera hovering steadily about 105 meters straight above me. The live view over Malmö was spectacular and I used up most of the juice in my drone’s battery to compose an image that felt just […]

Measuring Distance

After years of running with the Nike+ app, I’ve only just recently started keeping track of my walking activity. I suppose it’s the fact that measuring distance and elevation has become so effortless and is so handily available within Apple’s default Health app Photographing and filming whilst trekking up and down the often steep hills […]

Stairway to Heaven

Shot yesterday during a 8k walk around Lisbon. For Charlotte. one of the main missions with our visit is to visit newly opened hotels to make a first hand assessment of if they live up to the self-proclaimed hype. Of the half dozen we’ve visited so far, both VERRIDE –  PALÁCIO SANTA CATARINA and The […]

Back in Lisbon

It’s just over three years since my last visit to Lisbon Portugal. Interestingly, there’s something indefinably pleasant about this city. For a European capital, it’s  relatively small with only about a half a million people living within the immediate city limits. Maybe that’s it. Lisbon doesn’t seem dauntingly large or difficult to navigate. It’s walk-able. […]

Peter Madsen and the Drone

On my way to pick up a package from Amazon earlier tonight, I took the Mavic with me for a short photo flight to see if I could capture the amazing sunset over Denmark. It had rained for most of the day, so when the sun came out, I felt compeelted to get out and […]

Intro for Yogi Jenn Russell

Here’s an intro for yogi Jenn Russell who is one of Bamboo Yoga Retreat’s resident yoga and meditation teachers. She’s not only an inspiring instructor, Jenn’s also a successful businesswoman whom designs and produces retreats all over the world. The above intro for Jenn’s forthcoming YouTube channel was shot with the Sony A7III one late […]

Air India Executive Class

Back in Malmö again after a rare ride in Air India’s Executive Class on a 787 Boeing Dreamliner from New Delhi. What I think most folks don’t know about traveling in business is the slew of perks that precede the comfy flight itself. Once I’d paid for the upgrade at Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi, (at a reasonable […]

Bananas & Street Photography

Street photography of my banana dealer at the local market in Chaudi, some twenty minutes or so from Agenda Beach in south Goa. What you don’t see or feel from the picture is the heat. Sauna level heat. It’s the start of the monsoon season in South East Asia and unlike most westerners visiting India this time of year, the […]

Buffalo of South Goa

From the hillside farms of southern Goa where I spent some time around the small rice fields and buffalo grazing grounds a few days ago. Hotter than hell, but beautiful, too. When I look at farm animals these days, I often feel a level of concern rise with in me about their well-being and if […]

Thoughts on Sony A7III

I’ve been a Canon photographer for close to two decades. I was an early adopter of digital imagery and saw the potential with the underlying technology. In my mind, there was just no looking back. Digital photography was going to take over. Way back in 2002, I had one of Canon’s first fully digital SLR […]

Goa in a Tuk-Tuk

Here’s a short video from my adrenaline boosting tut-tuk adventure yesterday and today in the hills above Agonda Beach i south Goa, India. Shot using a DJI Osmo Mobile, a Gopro Hero 6, an iPhone 6s and an iPhone 7plus.

Easy Breakfast Sandwich

When it comes to food, I’m a reasonably easy fellow to please. An simple omelet, a few pieces of toast and a bowl of baked beans works just fine for breakfast. And a strong mug of coffee, of course. And being that I have genes from two countries that eat almost anything on a single […]

Fresh Air with James Comey

I strongly recommend listening to former F.B.I. Director James Comey’s interview on NPR’s formidable Fresh Air. Mister Comey has written a book about key events leading to his falling out with President Trump and subsequent firing from the F.B.I. As I’ve written in at least two previous posts, there is an ongoing norm shift taking place […]

Colorful India

Here are three kind shopkeepers I chitchat with during my walks along the village road. After a belated and painfully chilly Scandinavian winter, where most folks wear thick, hefty jackets and coats, invariably in fifty shades of black, it’s been visually liberating to be in India where bright colors and elaborate patterns are celebrated and […]

South Goa, India

Aside from a morning shoot on Thursday, all principle footage has been shot and I now have a couple of days before it’s time to head back to Europe. That said, as soon as I see something that I think could be interesting to include in the final edit, I almost instinctively whip out a […]
