January 9. 2014Campaign by World Perfect for NorthSide Festival 2013. I shot the photos. Sofie is using them as posters for her room.
November 6. 2013I did a couple of photos for Byhaver.dk - a webshop focusing on especially people living in larger cities who wants to grow vegetables. I am fortunate that I have a lovely garden here where I live in the heart of Aarhus. So I chose to shoot the photographs in my own home. Incredibly exciting job! :)
October 11. 2013Last weekend we had exhibition opening on our 'Lead the Way' campaign that we did together with World Perfect for NorthSide Festival. The exhibition took place in an old military bunker in the Heart of Aarhus, Denmark. It was open for two days. Everything went very well - We want to thank all of you who came by! Thank You.
August 12. 2013I have spend two days in Copenhagen together with Daniel Aude shooting two music videos for Frank Ziyanak on his coming solo album. I have not been working with video before but that is most definitely something I will do again. Here are a few snapshots I took while working. Maybe you will recognise something in the videos!
July 30. 2013 Earlier this year i was invited to Skuespilhuset in Copenhagen to shoot Den Sorte Skole while they were performing their newest album 'Lektion III' with amazing visuals done by Dark Matters. During the shooting I broke my camera because it hit a door frame. Bad luck!
I decided to play with lights and long exposure photos because the camera could not focus. On the way home to Simon Dokkedal from Den Sorte Skole I realised that I had to do something totally different - and I am actually very excited with the result.
Lektion III consists of 25 track. I've made 25 pictures, one for each song.
June 24. 2013In the beginning of June I was working together with the advertising company World Perfect and NorthSide Festival about creating a sustainable profile for NorthSide Festival 2013. We created the campaign 'Lead the Way' trying to encourage people to be responsible with trash at the festival. We used five of my pictures for this campaign and they were literally everywhere on NorthSide Festival - even on the big monitors next to the two big stages.
Here are some of the campaign i shot at NorthSide Festival.
June 13. 2013Finally finished the last exam. Everything went really well despite the fact that I prioritised our exhibition at the Northside Festival higher than the exam. Now I start a big project with Aarhus Kommune it will take one to two months. Exciting, yes!
Here are some snapshots I took at Northside Festival - little bit of everything. I think there has been a huge lack of pictures where the atmosphere is captured at Northside Festival - despite of all the Instagram pictures of course. Photographers tend to focus only on the musicians. I do not!
June 13. 2013Tomorrow we wil be at NorthSide Festival. We are having a exhibition as a part of the campaign Lead the Way created by World Perfect. The visuals of the campaign is posters with pictures i shot and Martin and I have used these campaign posters to create 15 unique pieces of art. Also we have prepared a BIG piece which Martin Skyt will be working on during the festival. Come see the psychedelic woods with the retro 3D feeling!
We are STOKED! Come by World Perfect at NorthSide Festival, visit see the exhibition, become a part of Lead The Way, and maybe you will feel the need to buy one of the crazy rat posters.
June 1. 2013Yesterday we received this magazine from Informanten - a magazine about anthropology at Aarhus University. I did this front and back piece together with Malene and Jonas. Pretty cool I think! It is Malene in the photo at Ar0s Museum. Now i am heading for todays job - a wedding!
Maj 24. 2013Today we cleaned Aarhus, why? Because we love Aarhus. City Sweep was arranged by World Perfect, NorthSide Festival & HeleVejen but they could not have done it without the big amount of volunteers. This was part of a bigger campaign about sustainability. The images you see in these photos are some of my photos I took with my old Yashica T3 super on a Kodak Ektar 35mm film. I have always liked those photos but Jonas E. Thomsen from World Perfect was the one that thought of the idea to use my photos and add graphics to them - and he os damn good at it. I am very proud of the product we have made and I am so excited about NorthSide Festival 2013 where even more of my photos are to be used for the campaign. Also I can announce that I am working on a piece of art together with Martin Skyt for NorthSide Festival - This is BIG. Stay tuned!!!
Maj 5. 2013Tonight I was shooting at SPOT Festival for Soundvenue again. This time i was shooting Den Sorte Skole, Turboweekend, Cancer, and Vinnie Who. This night was kind of hectic but I think these photos are worth it. Really like the one below with Den Sorte Skole - psychedelic!! I am done for now at SPOT Festival shooting for Soundvenue. Been a while since i shot concert photos but this was great, especially working like this. Normally i tend to shoot a lot of pictures to make a series, but for this job i knew i only had to shoot one or two photos. I tried to test myself on how fast i could get the picture i wanted, took more-or-less 3 minutes every time - so there i can really feel that i have improved. Even though the light settings at SPOT Festival was horrible combining red and blue light. That really sucked! But I don't care.. photoshop is my friend.
Den Sorte Skole
Maj 4. 2013I shot some photos for Soundvenue.com at SPOT Festival in Aarhus. Today, Friday, i shot Lulu Rouge, Baby in Vain and Kadie Elder.
Baby in Vain
April 17. 2013Woah. I have not really been taking photos recently. I had an incident where my Macbook was stolen - so i Iave been having a hard time. Besides having a hard time i am also having a very good time. Working on seven covers for the band Mechanical Waves, starting up a new project with Aarhus Kommune, soon taking photos for Soundvenue.com at SPOT Festival in Aarhus, and much more! - Stay tuned. :)
April 03. 2013In January I took photos of Martin Thim, one of the founders of WorldPerfect. One of the photos has recently been featured in Startopmagasine.dk from February. It is the largest entrepreneur magazine in Denmark which is published electronically every month. I would recommend reading the seven pages about Martin Thim and WorldPerfect.
March 27. 2013Today i have been working with Martin Nyland Skyt on our project. We are really making progress now. We are extremely excited and we look forward to showing you what we are doing! Also today i just had to try painting again. Very inspired by Martin and his paintings.
February 11. 2013It has been a while since i have updated my blog here. This does not mean that i have been doing nothing. No, i have rather been very busy. Recently i did a job for Aarhus Kommune wich i am not allowed to share due to some different restrictions. I have also attended to Transmediale 2013 BWPWAP. It is a Berlin-based festival focusing on art, culture and technologies. That was great fun, and i will of couse post some pictures!
Right now i am sitting in Saalbach, Austria. I am away for a ski trip. This is a picture i took the other day when we visited Königssee (a very big lake). The weather was amazing, best conditions for photographing i have ever experienced!! Pictures will come soon too! - Woaw. So much to do! I am indeed a very lucky man!
January 14. 2013I've been experimenting with 35 mm film negatives and my new scanner. Exposed some of my old negatives to chlorine. This is only the very beginning of this!
Besides my new hobby as a chemist I'm also starting up a new project with my friend Martin Nyland Skyt who is an artist. I'm very excited about this collaboration.
The first photo below is taken with my Nikon D700 - btw the process is very toxic!
These photos are the ones exposed to chlorine. Shot with my Yashica T3.
5. December 2012Recently i created these to pictures for a magasine named Informanten. The woman is my girlfriend, Joephine Holm Bach and the man is on of my best friends Bjørn Jespersen. It was a nice job and I got the opportunity to make two pictures I have had on my mind for a long time. Especially Bjørn's demon eyes that are very inspired by the music video Yonkers by Tyler The Creator.
31. November 2012I spend a cold and windy autumn morning in Copenhagen with Frank Ziyanak and his daughter. Normally i tend to write a lot of thoughts but with this photo series I will let these photos speak for themselves.
I am very happy with these photos. I hope you get a warm feeling when you see them.
