Recent Work – Close-Up Portraits

I recently had the pleasure of having these 3 Vancovuer based actors and talents in studio for a conceptual photo shoot (…which I will share with you very soon). I took advantage of the situation and photographed this little mini series of close-up portraits of them as well. Enjoy!

New Work – Carl Montoya – Vancouver Actor

Not to long ago I had the pleasure of having Carl Montoya in my studio for a little conceptual portrait shoot.
Carl is an up-and-coming actor in Vancouver, an overall awesome guy and a fellow soccer fan! – which btw is a rare find here in Canada… but then, as the name might hence, he is (like me) not from these waters either.

ENJOY

Brian Knox McGugan, Cigars – Homage with a twist. Inspired by Robert Doisneau’s image of Picasso and Chris Bucks version with Steve Martin. This is in a way my homage to these great photographers that inspired me when I was first getting into photography… and in a way still do. © Jens Kristian Balle, www.jenskristianballe.com

Assignment – Vancouver Magazine – Richard Harmon and William B. Davis

In recently had the pleasure of photographing Richard Harmon and William B. Davis for the September issue of Vancouver Magazine, they are both currently in the Vancouver produced show Continuum, Richard has previously been in shows like Bates Motel and The Killing. William is probably most famous for his role as The Cigarette Smoking Man in X-Files, he also has over 120 credits on IMDB, impressive!

If you in Vancouver don’t forget to pick up a copy.

Here are the tearsheets and at the bottom you can find the originals.
