Some shots from my trip deep into the woods which I made in april got published in NSD.
Probably don't got the rights to but these shots up, but I thought I'd make a notice at least.
Still going strong. Let's celebrate with a little update of what else I've been doing this winter (which hopefully will take it's place in a bunch of mags or whatever).
Went to a little cabin far out in the woods, documenting the making of a record by Moivi.
Got a good taste of home since my last trip, too good. Cause just as I'm about to look forward to being home and all that fine company that comes along, something comes up to drag me away again. Though, shits going down and that's for sure!
I'll attach some references just to make sure you don't think I'm at my ass doing nothing at all winter.
Helped out this new started business with some stills for their website.
Sounds very cruel but as I used a still camera for the shots you shouldn't have to worry about it. Christmas kid far down in the Portraits-section (middle row).
The second poster I did for YSG got pretty intense and served it's purpose well.
Those guys finally got it together for a band shoot, got some badass promos to put up in the Promos-section in the far right row!
Been living for a few years at Lassabacken now, people coming and going but this setup feels nothing but legit!
Malte asked me to snap of a portrait of him, easy lightning but turned out pretty good.
The latest, Halloween at Corona was a wicked night!

Nathalie (Cleo) asked me to take some photos at the release party for her first album, so I did! Awesome night by the way.
Klas from Random Bastards dropped by for some quick face-shot portaits, got it done in a jiffy!
Went on another spontanous skate-trip with You Skate Girl to Luleå which I also did a poster for. Had a blast of course!
Actually thought I was gonna cover some weddings this summer, but as it turns out this was the first one. The hole day went super and I'm pretty stoked on the reslut, check out one of the goldies!
Had one of the coolest promo shoots ever with the awesome band Laservågen, played around with color filters on flashes and lens filters on cam which turned out wickedly ill. Put 'em up in the Promos-section but you may also see some on their site!
Tried to keep it simple which worked really well but still resluted in one days hard work. Here's one of the new tees and I also noticed they used one of my old shots from a live performance on the new LP.
Documented Betongcupen, a huge skate competition here in Sweden, on their stop in Umeå for Tacky. Tried aiming on getting tricks with different riders instead of just taking good photos, got pretty hectic but I got lots of shots. Check out even more of the action!
Went out on a mission from the one and only eyewear-brand with Rolf Nylinder to shoot some covers to a product catalog. They published a few of my shots in it. Epic!
Hottest shades of the summer is here! Rimes, oh rimes... So I got some funky friends who established some quality shades with a killing look that's gonna bring the summer to a hole new level. They also put me on the team as a photographer since I've been shooting a lot with the guys this winter which resulted me getting a new kind of portfolio on the Monokel-site (got about 75% of the shots).
Got inspired by a poster of MFM doing a huge wall ride, and here's Klas Beyer doing a sick fence ride transfer in Vännesby. Check it out in the Action-section...
Wedding of Mr. & Mrs. Klasa plus a couple of new portraits of Stephan and Philip in the Portraits-section...
Recently also put up Rolf Nylinder in Stockholm tunnel in the Lifestyle-section...
Haven't done a wedding since last summer, but now finally I did not only have a wedding shoot but the first shoot in Åre since I moved here for the winter in December. The wedding was at the fancy Copperhill Mountain Lodge hotel. Shots turned out splendid and I hope to shoot some more weddings in and around Umeå this summer. A few goodies in the Portraits-section...
Been on a two week tour with the Random Bastards snowboard crew in Stockholm and Umeå. Got a bunch of sick shots during this awesome trip which ended up perfectly after a bangin sesh, met with the rest of the crew, Jocke and his new board before their trip to Klimpfjäll. Pretty stoked to present Jocke's team model on Smokin snowboards, designed by Marc Strömberg based on pictures by me.
Here we go again, Transition published a Skype interview with Rolf Nylinder by my buddy Markus "Slemke" Lemke in the latest issue. I went up to Umeå (where I no longer live) for a week to shoot some snowboarding, got some shit done and managed to snake in that shot if Roffe in the last minute.
For the Winter Awards I got a call from Transition editor asking me about a shot of Tove Holmgren which a luckily had, from the tour with Boardstore & Friends.
Suppose this has been official since the beginning the month, though it didn't cross my path until today. Transition published an article in the December issue, including six of my shots from the Crossing Boarders tour last summer. Sweet news! Here's a sneak peak of the article.
Got asked to join Boardstore.se for their Kickoff-trip to Sälen for some indoor surfing and a snowboard competition. Ups 'n' downs, but overall I had a blast!
> Indoor surfing in Sälen
> Snowboard session in Sälen
BOB has become a yearly fighting gala in Umeå. MMA and thai boxing is usually what's on the menu, but this year they managed to squeeze in a little art performance as well. It was a pleasure to be a part of those scenes!
Did a quick promo shoot with an upcoming band in Umeå called Laservågen. Didn't turn out the least as expected from my point of view, but still usable as a community flick I guess.
Shot some new promotional band shots and portraits with a local pop/folk-band callad Väärt. Check 'em out in the Promos-section, the far right row!
A few weeks ago, I entered a photo battle at YoBeat.com with the wallride of Tanner and beat two other photos with it before I lost. Still got a pair of gloves and they also published a write up about the shot, sweet move YoBeat! Not least, they also put up a wallpaper of it for you to download!
Not that it really fits in here, but since I had other news this very day I might as well just notify the accomplishment of CeciliaGranlund.se after some intense work. I'm actually really stoked about it!
Another shot from my trip to the States and Donners Pass this winter got published, thanks to Joel Fuquay for his bavery and helping out to get it published. Check out more of the action here!
Cecilia is a great furniture designer and artist, shot some of her latest products for a show and website. Went really good and I got a chance to play around with my new huge softbox. Put up some of the goodies in the Commercial-section too the right...
Marc Strömberg got he latest collection of the UÅ tees for sale. We went out to shoot some commercial shots of them, check 'em out in Commercials...
Tacky has finally published my shots from every stop of the Crossing Boarders tour. Lined 'em up for you right here under...

> Gothenborg and Area 51 (16)
> Falkenberg (18)
> Malmö and Micro Mega ramp(19-20)
> Get Set Go! (21-22)
Got a mail from Umemodellen who asked me to give a talk about shooting skateboarding. Snapped off a quick one of Thuresson doing a crooked in the park, turned out pretty good. Went really well all-in-all and lucky as I was this day, Nicke wanted me to shoot a spot just as we were about to finish the course, so we went altogether. Got ONE and TWO shots from the scene.
Back from the skatetour, had a great time though so intense, a week off shooting now was in it's right place. They've published some of the photos on Tacky, but it's a lot more to come!
Got asked to do some crowd shots at the club, met a cool dude who knows his soul. Check out the shots in this album > Goodfellas - 28 aug med MATS NILESKÄR (P3 SOUL)
Went to Vännesby for my third wedding shoot, last one for this summer (which is pretty much over) I suppose...? Really like it though. Gives me the pleasure to meet new people, lets me play around with lightning and take good photos. Put up a few from the last sesh on Flickr > one, two and three.
Had another wedding sesh, not an every day wedding too! At a museum this time, right beside a model of an old village. Uploaded one and two shots to Flickr.
Crossing Borders is a pretty big skate tour for girls from Canada, Mexico and Sweden which is taking place in Sweden right now. And I got the honor to join this awesome crew next week as a photographer, so stoked! Follow us in this set at Flickr!
Eric and Jonas from Randombastards hooked me up once again to shoot some products, did a quick and painless sesh with pleasing results. For your eyes in the Commercial-section...
Also had my first action sesh with the fisheye, shooting some skateboarding with Warell. Uploaded a couple to the Action-section...
I'm having a few weddings to shoot this summer actually, first one ever went pretty darn awesome I have to say. Check out the shots in Portraits-section...
Just got the news from my dear friend Kumara, she became "Betty of the Month" at ShredBetties.com! The three shots of mine they used was taken this winter close to Northstar at Tahoe.
Aight, ladies n gent's! Light-bag-trip for a couple of weeks or so, just living on the cheap under the sun... latah!
Another night at Rex! Crowded this time which made me have a really good time as well, met lots of people that I haven't seen in a long time.
Probably gonna shoot at Rex some more in the future, so keep track on that on my Flickr.
Mi dear brethren Matty just informed me that we got a full page in one their local snowboarding mag...! Pretty stoked about that, I must say. Also published by BataleonAUS on Facebook.
Was shooting some at the You Skate Girl tour last week and was supposed to have a sesh with Ida Östensson for some promotional portraits to magazines and articles, but we both totally forgot. Got some great ones today instead, check 'em out in Lifestyle and Promos-section...
Also, my sis asked me for some shots and as she came up with some great ideas, WE came up with some great shots! For your eyes in the row of Portraits...
While putting up new stuff in the other sections, I figured, why not bring some real action as well. Check out Alex Scott's sick wallride from Lake Tahoe in the Action-section...
Intense weekend! Took the day off from my regular work to make some wicked shots all night. First off was Telenor's company holiday party which I wasn't as prepared for as I thought, still turned out to be a blast! Then packed my bag again to go straight back into town for a (k)night to remember, got some ridiculously ill shots.
Thanks Goodfellas x SUKH KNIGHT (UK) x KÖTTA! x TWISTED!
Random Bastards presents: George Kaplan - Dank Rap featuring Uncle Vernon, Roy, K-Mane! This local underground hiphop band asked me to shoot a cover for their new cassette tape(!) album which is gonna hit the streets any day now. Check out the bangers in Lifestyle, Promos and Commercial to the right...
A few of my shots from the opening day of Sparken turned up at the T-Post Blog as well. Sweet!
Got asked to shoot the opening day of Sparken, a new local skatepark in Umeå. This event got pretty big with a huge crowd which made it both fun and hard to shoot, check out some of the goodies!
The thought of this portfolio has been nibbling my mind for a long time now, and I think what made me finally pulling the plug (if not for the support of dear friends and the great people I met along my journey this winter) was the return from a long trip in lovely California. I needed something to look forward to when returning back home from a paradise.
Btw, DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS! All you need to know basics.
Got creative with some mirrors in a promo shoot with the super sweet pop band Väärt.
Just got the news from Jimmy; "got sponsored by Allian snowboards" and it's all right here at the Allian blog for your eyes.
Shooting new Random Bastards Tees! 4 new designs, one actually shot by myself. See Lifestyle and Commercial for more shots...
Returned from a fantastic 3 months trip in Cali, best thing I've ever did probably. Feels like a starting point for me now to TRY to make something out of this camera game, especially after all the support from my dear friends over there. You know who you are...
Keep track as I'm uploading my photos from the trip in this set at Flickr!
