During my stay in Copenhagen shooting Copenhagen Fashion Week AW2013, in February, I also did a few model testings. Here are some of the Dutch model Kim Van Tuijl at her kitchen in Copenhagen. Helping us out with the styling was Ryanne Sambros who is also Dutch, and is working for Episode, second hand store, in Copenhagen. Kim is represented by CPHWOLVES.

Here are four pictures from the dirty house wife photo shoot I did with Ivalu Sørensen from Diva Models. We had some extra time after a photo shoot down at Moesgård Strand and decided to do something fairly unromantic. I might be wrong but, I believe her kitchen doesn’t look this way everyday. Styling this shoot was Anne Margrethe Rimmer Larsen. I don’t encourage anyone to smoke cigarettes, but the photos needed this final touch to give them the right feeling.
Some most of you guys who are a frequent reader might have experienced some problems with entering my Flickr-gallery at www.flickr.com. The reason was that I had published some nude content and hadn’t set the right content filters. You might experience such glitches still, but it will be fixed by the end of this week.
This spring I was given the task of photographing a toaster branded Dualit as a part of my final exam at Norsk Fotofagskole, here are some pictures I took to this assignment. Not the most exciting subject to photograph, but very challenging. Shiny steel, round, shiny sides reflect the entire studio and all its surroundings, which meant we had to take some small steps to conceal the reflections and make the toaster so shiny and clean as possible.
A neat trick is to use a white, large bed sheet, span it between two light stands to conceal the surrounding environment. Also make sure you have an assistant who can help you out setting up the rig, cleaning the props that you are photographing, brings you coffee and keeping the spirit up after four or five hours of shooting. Thank you Ane Aspén!
Early Tuesday morning Sascha Njaa and I took the buss to Lade to visit Kvik and photograph our saucepan in a design environment. The staff there were very helpful giving us full freedom to photograph wherever we wanted in their store and even provided us with a rather fancy saucepan and some kitchen-requisites.
Todays evaluation Jan Christian Sørlie, the teacher in this course, pointed out that I might have dropped the two containers behind the saucepan and erased the reflections of the kitchen-store. The choice of saucepan weren’t either an optimal solution, the reason were that it was curved and reflected almost everything behind the camera. Have I had a square saucepan I’d rather photograph that next time.
Thank you Kvik for letting us photograph in your store!
First part of the first assignment done. Today Sascha Njaa and I worked in studio for two and a half hours trying to get the right lighting for and composition for these three saucepans. This is the result we got after a bit tweaking with the background, some strip-light-softboxes and tethering-problems between my laptop and my Nikon D700. After the shoot I took the bus to Lade visiting both HTH and Kvik, kitchen designers, asking them if we could come tomorrow and have a photo shoot with one of their stoves. Tomorrow morning Sascha and I are visiting Kvik with our cameras and a bundle of asparaguses and broccoli.
