Here is a picture of Rachel Nordtømme I photographed early spring. The image is going to be used as a huge sponsor sticker on her car or something like that. The picture was taken on the track at Øya in Trondheim. The ambient light was still a little too bright for me to get to freezeher properly at the moment so you can see some movement by her feet, but it’s like that when you work under pressure and need to get a job done. The image isa also illuminated with three Nikon SB-900 Speedlight flash units and a Elinchrom Ranger. At the shoot I brought along Oscar Stoltenberg Johansen and Ingrid Marie Nymoen as assistant photographers helping me out setting the light properly.
Rachel was unfortunately injured during a competition this summer, but is now back on his feet ready to dance her way to fame in the TV-show “Skal vi Danse” running on Norwegian TV2, hopefully all autumn.
Today is my last day in Mo i Rana for this time. I’ve been here since Sunday night and finished the job for three o’clock before I turn my nose north to Bodø and an approximately four-hour drive over the mountain. I will be in Bodø just a day before I travel by plane back to Trondheim and home again to relax this weekend with lots of photo shoots with some other models than students to have a photo on the school’s certificate.
