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 […]

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…
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 […]
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 […]
Currently in Tylösand to produce a thing about this uniquely beautiful coastline. Surprisingly, I’ve actually never been here before.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
This is by far my favorite sea-level image of the Öresund Bridge. I shot it a couple years ago during a local excursion with Charlotte during one of those wonderfully warm summer evenings. An humongously enlarged version of this photo can be seen at our local supermarket, ICA MAXI. During my pre-marriage stag party here […]
One of my clients, Rosengårds Fastigheter, just recently launched their sparkling new website. I started working with the relatively new company late last fall and we started filming four one minute portraits as soon as the snow (finally) melted away in April. Each video shines a some light on a key area within the company […]
Last night, I set the alarm for 6:00 a.m. to be able to capture some footage and stills of Marstrand in the early morning light. The remote control isn’t working right now due to the charging port malfunctioning. I may have forced the micro usb cable in the wrong way. So I’m controlling the Mavic via […]
My view this evening at about 11:00 p.m. from across the narrow channel that seperates Marstrand from where our hotel is located.
Our talented daughter Elle shot this earlier today during a well-needed coffee break at Bergs Konditori – a legendary café on the island of Marstrand where we’re working for a few days. I’m here to shoot a destination video about Marstrand, and so, today, in early hours of the a.m., we walked back and forth […]
Here’s a collection of mostly aerial (drone) footage from Västra Hamnen that I’ve shot over the last couple of months. We really live in a remarkable neighborhood – especialy when the weather is as spectacular as it has been since April.
From yesterday’s broadcast of the FIFA WORLD CUP quarter final match between Sweden and England at Folkets Park here in Malmö. Not exactly sure how many were there, but somewhere above 10k would be about right. Sad for the loss, glad for the camaraderie atsmosphere at the event.
We had a bunch of “cigarette boats” visit our small little harbor earlier today. Unbeknownst to me, it’s an annual event. I took out the drone for a spin to capture a few of the above sequences. The popular 1980s pastel hued detective show, Miami Vice, obviously came to mind as these monsters eventually pulled […]
So this 60 second video represents some of the highlights from our phenomenal safari in the Masai Mara National Reserve. It was our third safari to date and I sincerely hope there will be plenty more. It was an abstract, somewhat religious experience to be on the very planes of the African savanna where we […]
From last night: at 87 meters, the high rise to the right is called Kronprinsen (the Crown Prince). It was once Sweden’s tallest building, replaced in 2005 by the 190 meter skyscraper, Turning Torso – the silhouette in the background. To the right is Malmö Live.
From last night above a small bridge near Malmö Live, the hotel,conference and concert hall of Malmö’s Symphony Orchestra. It’s all about finding the sweet spot between light and dark. That’s what I keep telling myself each time I head out after sunset with the drone to capture a few photographs that are within the […]
Shot this last night at about 10:30 p.m just after getting off the train from Kastrup and off the plane from Spain. Smooth flight and gorgeous weather as we crossed Ibiza and the Swiss Alps. According to Apple Maps, we flew above (or, at least near) the Matterhorn. Pilar de la Horadada near Alicante is […]
In Spain again. This time near Alicante where I’m checking out a small, picturesque, seaside village called, Pilar de la Horadada. Whilst here, I joined the dynamic duo, Ankan Östberg and Katti Johansson and a huge posse of roughly 20 friends – mostly old colleagues and buddies from my days up in Riksgränsen (northernmost Swedish province […]
Sad news arrived yesterday from Nairobi, Kenya. Charlotte’s aunt, Görel Day-Wilson had passed away hastily. Raised and educated in Sweden, Görel moved to Kenya over 45 years ago where together with her husband David, she owned a tea farm. Görel worked as a jouranlist and in later years, as an administrator and coordinator for Rotary […]
Swedish Midsommar in Vejbystrand from some reshuffled material I found deep down in the archives…one of the rare Swedish Midsummer (sommar solstice) celebrations that didn’t require umbrellas, boots and raincoats. Shot in Vejbystrand, an idyllic, yet off-the-radar ancient village along the northern coast of western Skåne in southern Sweden. A place we love to visit.
Bangkok Hyperlapse is a collection of video clips for one of my favorite megacities, Bangkok, Thailand. With all the film material I have from the Thai capital, I could possibly produce a dozen more just like it. We lived in Bangkok for about six months five years ago. Though the heat and humidity started taking […]
I’ve been flying in and out of Los Angeles International Airport for most of my life. At least far back as 1967. For the last couple of years, I’ve tried to spend some time shooting and filming planes as they land from the small park next to the In n Out Burger restaurant adjacent to […]
From a recent visit to Österlen on Sweden’s east coast where the yellow canola fields are just absolutely stunning. We spent a couple of days in the region, enjoying amazing weather, good food and beverages at local BnB, Karnelunds.
Man, this spring has been one endless travel tour. Just back from Göteborg (after Berlin and Palma) where the weather was phenomenally good and traffic horrendously bad. I feel sorry for the locals that have to put up with it. Like Palma, I have mixed feelings about Göteborg. Love the positive mindset most folks have […]
In all honesty, I’m a bit conflicted as to what I feel about Palma de Mallorca. On the one hand, I full-heartidely appreciate the old part of the city’s ancient architecture and the patina of Sants Catalina and some areas in Terreno. Palma is both charming and leisurely – laid back, even. Walking along the […]
Currently in Palma de Majorca – where we lived for a winter some 12 years ago. I haven’t been back since about four years and the last time was to shoot for a story about a hotel called Palm Suites that was inaugurated by the always fun-loving Swedish party princess and sister to the Swedish […]
Just got back from an intense, albeit inspiring three day art focused trip to Germany where I stayed at one serioulsy cheap Berlin hotel. Of all the things I saw during the many hours I spent walking around Berlin, for some odd reason, the hotel Sickinger Hof stands out like a sore thumb. Let me […]
Berlin Hauptbahnhof, the main train station in the capital of Germany yesterday afternoon before meeting up with friends Doris and Peter – former Västra Hamnen neighbors. I was able to walk around the giant train station and collect footage undisturbed for about two hours. Didn’t even see a single police or security rep and noone […]
It’s certainly interesting being a Swedish American and writing about the National Day of Sweden while in Berlin, Germany. Maybe not so much as a kid growing up in the US, but as an adult, I’ve always felt skeptical about celebrating either of my home countries national day. It’s just so absurdly self-congratulatory, unreflective and […]
It’s been about five years since I was last back in Berlin and what has arguably been the world’s quintessential cultural capital since at least the 1920s. Berlin is certainly a melting pot – a relentless, seemingly untamed urban jungle where much of everything happens all at once. An epic center where the high and […]
The heatwave continues…thankfully. Shot this one yesterday with a birdseye view of Scaniabadet, a super-popular tanning and swimming area here in Västra Hamnen. I shot it while hovering at approximately 100 meters above the unsuspecting sun worshipers below.
This is a shot I took earlier tonight from above Ribersborg – a nearby park – and I’m calling the photo, “The Nightfly”, hoping Steely Dan and Donald Fagen fans out there will get the namesake. I waited until the very last light (and for folks to have left the park) to fire up the […]
