New Work – Remains

 

New Work: REMAINS

The series Remains portrays a handful of World War II bunkers located on the Danish West Coast in the Oksbøl Military Firing Range close to Blåvandshug. The firing range is the largest of its kind in Denmark. 
The bunkers were part of the Nazi regimes Atlantic Wall, stretching along the coast from Norway in the North, all the way to the Spanish border in the South. Close to 5000 kilometres of concrete fortifications and other defensive measures.
The bunkers exhibited in this series were all originally built in the sand dunes but are now, after decades of erosion and exposure to the elements, slowly being swallowed up by the Atlantic Ocean
It is unknown how long these relics will remain. For now they still stand as a strong reminder of the past.

Monsterville – Key Art – Universal Pictures

I’m happy to share this movie poster I photographed last year for Universal Pictures “Monsterville: The Cabinet of Souls” by R.L. Stine. We shot it on set in Walnut Grove outside Vancouver, Canada. As always it was pleasure working alongside BC’s local film crew.

R.L. Stine’s Monsterville: Cabinet of Souls is a 2015 American Comedy TV film directed by Peter DeLuise. The film stars Dove CameronBraeden LemastersKatherine McNamaraCasey Dubois and Tiffany Espensen, and is about a group of teenage friends that must resist the spell of an evil showman staging a house of horrors show in their small town. It also stars Ryan McCartan and Andrew Kavadas.

New Work – Not Quite Right

I’m happy to share this new work with you!! It’s a series of four gentlemen not quite getting their – wardrobe, I suppose – right. This was a great conceptual project to work on… but also a little long as I originally only photographed Carl(the guy with the red tie) and intended to leave it at that… It was only later, while brainstorming for a different shoot, that I realized it could be turned into an interesting little mini series.

You might also recognize a few of these faces(which btw, all belong to some great actors here in Vancouver) as I earlier have shared some closeup portraits of them. The series was also recently featured over on Wonderful Machine.

Anyways, enjoy the images below.

From the iPhone

The saying goes “the best camera is the one you have with you”, nowadays that usually means your smartphone, so with that in mind I thought it was time again to share some shots I would’t have gotten if I didn’t have my iPhone with me. Now of course, this saying doesn’t quite work when your on a commercial, editorial or other job – here the best camera is the one that does the job and deliver whats needed… So usually you would have quite a different camera with you than an iPhone… But then, I guess if you pack/prepare right(Which every professional will do) the best camera is in fact the one you have with you… I wonder what clever man came up with this?

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the shots below, the shots are mainly from Vancouver with a few from some travels around British Columbia. Don’t forget to follow me on instagram for more – @ballephoto.
