New Personal Work – Pink

Happy to share these 3 new conceptual still life pieces. Heads up – they are a bit punny. Besides the humour this was a fun project where I got to play with some harder shadows for once, I’m quite a fan and have a few more similar ones in the works. Also there will be some great news about this series soon so keep an eye out;)

Fish Tale

An improbable, boastful tale, as in He came up with some fish tale about his winnings at the track. This expression alludes to the tendency of fishermen to exaggerate the size of their catch.

Personal Work – TV

As you may know I have created a few more pieces that goes along with the concepts of my older Temptations series. Previously I’ve shared the pieces Gold  and Bacon. If you missed them you can check them out HERE and HERE.

temp·ta·tion
tem(p)ˈtāSHən/
noun
1. a desire to do something, esp. something wrong or unwise.

The one I’m sharing with you today is titled TV… for obvious reasons. This was also the first time I played with this background colour, quite like how it turned out. Enjoy!

Personal Work – Bacon

I have created a few more pieces that goes along with the concept of my older Temptations series. Previously I’ve shared Gold which you can check out HERE if you missed it.

temp·ta·tion
tem(p)ˈtāSHən/
noun
1. a desire to do something, esp. something wrong or unwise.

Keeping this definition in mind the conceptual Temptations series was created fixating on the negative lifestyle habits and addictions of humans around the world. Though the theme is dark the series is kept light-hearted, full of bright colours and carefully styled objects to match.

The one I’m sharing with you today is titled Bacon. Because we all love Bacon (except if you’re a vegan I suppose). Also, fun fact of the day:

  • I’m Danish. Bacon comes from pigs. For every Dane in the world there are more than 5 pigs in Denmark.

We are vastly outnumbered. So eat more bacon!

But watch out… (Especially if you don’t have free healthcare like those communists socialists from Denmark…)

You’re still here…
I’ll give you a second fun fact of the day: There are about 450000 calories worth of eatable meat/fat in a pig. With an average human daily calorie intake of 2250 there are enough pigs in Denmark to feed every Dane for more than a thousand days. That’s almost 3 years!**

 

 

 

 

**Calculated with rough school math by a creative person…

Editorial Assignment – Cover Shoot for ROB Magazine

I photographed the cover story for Report On Business Magazine a while back for their article about the messy takeover of Safeway by Sobeys. It was a pretty interesting assignment to photograph, I got to combine both my conceptual studio still life with my more eerie fine art work such as the the series Deserted and Silence.

The cover was also nominated for best magazine cover at the Magazines Awards by the Canadian National Media Awards Foundation.

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.
