Monthly Photo Challenge: The Changing Seasons 07

I run a Monthly Photo Challenge called The Changing Seasons. The photos in this gallery were shot in June.

Photo Session with Magda

Here’s the first shot I’ll share with you of Magda. I’ll share some more when I have processed them, but I have a lot of photos to process and not so much time… Magda is an amazing model to work with. She’s professional and she has a magic sparkle in her eyes. You can check…

I’m working on some new portrait projects this weekend. Here’s a self-portrait/composite image that I made on Thursday. Five Photos / Five Stories – Black & White Challenge: This is a long exposure combined with the teeth from a skull that I photographed at a museum, plus some random this & that effects. I’m probably offline when…

Portraits of Monika & Pamela

Model photography is on my schedule this coming weekend and I’m really looking forward to try out the new cameras in a different setting than usual. I thought I’d share a few model photos with you. These were shot with my ‘old camera’ two years ago. If your boss/management is retarded, one of these shots…

Avant-garde, sci-fi scene.

On the way avant-garde appeared

I was on the way home after a long day of continuous shooting downtown, taking photos for my monthly photo challenge with a new camera that I had to learn, when I came across Nina and her friend. They were filming for an art project they had at Strykejernet (an art school in Oslo). Unfortunately…
