Toughest – Malmö Race 2013

I was asked to capture “The most intense obstacle race” – Toughest and could not pass on this great opportunity.
The race was blessed with great weather, amazing efforts and a gigantic crowd. A fun day with countless “Kodak moments”. Here’s a small excerpt of the result. Enjoy!

Greengarden @ KB, Malmö

Spent my Saturday watching twelve bands battle for the title in the Emergenza Music Festival. Decided to bring along my camera and took a couple of shots of the Malmö based Folk-Rock band, Greengarden.

Listen to their music here:

(My personal favorite is “Walnut”. Check it out!!)

Rock & Doll

The two fashion freaks from Youtopia.se needed some lifestyle-pictures for their new and fresh collection named “Rock & Doll”. What better location to shoot this than the closest theme park? Fun clothes and talented models made my job easy…

Yellow fields

Walked past these amazing yellow fields and decided to seize the moment by taking a couple of snap-shots.

Paris Retro-Style

Spent a couple of days in Paris and decided to only use my 50mm lens, which made it impossible to take the classic “touristy” pictures. The compact format forced me to compose every frame and really find some interesting angles. Good practice! Of course, the graphic designer in me had to mash them up in an retro Photoshop inferno before publishing them :)

Recreation

Last weekend, I took a recreational trip to the southern parts of Sweden. The last couple of months have been least to say tough. Tons of work, minimal sleep and a minor river of energy drinks. To be able to function, it’s important to allow yourself to take a couple of hours off and simply relax. This time, a long walk and some random photography in the icy town Ystad was the plan. It was cold, but totally worth it! Hope you like the pics!
