Editorial Assignment – Laurent Potdevin, CEO of Lululemon for The Wall Street Journal

It’s time to get some updates up on the blog again. I have been neglecting it for the last few months as it has been a very busy time.

I’ll start of with posting this guy, his name is Laurent Potdevin and he is the CEO of Lululemon, I photographed him earlier this year for The Wall Street Journal and the article was published over the summer. Since then I have actually been back at Lululemon twice, photographing him for both Forbes Magazine and Canadian Business. He is a popular man!

Kindergarten Cop 2 – Key Art – Universal Pictures

I had the pleasure of photographing the Kindergarten Cop 2  gallery shoot for Universal Pictures. It’s the sequel to the 1990 comedy film Kindergarten Cop with Arnold Schwarzenegger. It’s directed by Don Michael Paul and starring Dolph Lundgren and Bill Bellamy.

Assigned to recover sensitive stolen data, a gruff FBI agent goes undercover as a kindergarten teacher, but the school’s liberal, politically correct environment is more than he bargained for.

Its was a fun shoot with lots of kids(obviously) and included a bit of the good old Scandinavian rivalry between myself(being Danish) and the Swedish Mr. Lundgren.
