A couple of weeks ago I did an editorial for Essen Magazine. They combine the world of fashion with food and drink. They hired me to do an editorial where the idea was that there would be pictures of food in the photos, in black and white, and the clothes would have the colour of that particular food. Take a look at some of the photos underneath (you can see the whole editorial here).

During this Men’s Fashion Week in Milan I was working with WHITE Milano. They organise the showcase of over 100 brands and designers in Via Tortona. The art-innstallations was by Erika Calesini. I was there to photograph the events, detail-shots and ‘whatever I found interesting.’ That’s exactly what I did, so here’s a look at how it all was:
After spending my holidays in Norway it was finally time to get back to Milan! I had to return earlier than planned due to work for Swiss brand ‘Bally’ and also ‘White’ during Mens Fashion Week (more on that later). Feels so good to be back. Even the Milanese fog was kind of welcoming.
A couple of weeks ago two friends visited me in Milan, and sure enough we also did a shooting. We took a train ride about 40 minutes outside of Milan, more or less just to see if there was something cool around to use for the shoot. We ended up in this huge field and under you can see some of the photos. I’m still going through all the material, but these I liked:
After some weeks of editorial shootings and look-books it was nice to do a very simple test-shoot. Just taking some good photos and enjoying the day. This is Swedish model Victor Finn, represented by Independent Men – Milan.
Here’s some photos I did last week with designer Renfang Hu and model Courtney B (2morrow models). The different designs were to be shot in different moods. Wednesday I’ll post the mens design shooting.
Make-up/Hair: Virginia Rizzo and assistant Nicole Krunić.
The first outfit will be a part of the Eco Fashion contest and exhibited at the Hub King’s Cross during London Design Festival.
Thursday I was on location doing an editorial shoot for Slurp magazine (out already next month), we worked with owls this time, which was a first for me. Amazing animals! Here’s a look at how it all went down.
So, I haven’t been able to blog for a week due to an angry photo library that wouldn’t cooperate with me! After a lot of attempts to fix this mother f#$&=” I got it right and am back in business. Have some photos stored up so the blog will again be updated daily. Loves. Thought I’d start by showing a couple of pics of me and my roomate Steffen with our “Gone Fishing” sign, meaning a number of wonderful things. Can U guess some of it?
This week my wonderful, fabulous friend Siri has been visiting me in Milan. She has gotten first hand experience with all the wonderful mosquitos and dangerous drinks, Milanese people know which ones I’m talking about. She’s leaving tomorrow for Norway and I’m leaving for Munich, Germany (Fashion week). Gonna do a lot of pictures and show later on. Fabuloso!
1st of August and we’re all a bit sleepy after last night. Milan is good today, a.k.a. you won’t die from the heat, so going out later. Steffen made trashy breakfast while the rest of the house pretended to be bears during winter.
UPDATE: The picture won the “Export of the week” at Björn Borg, check it out:
Last night me and Steffen had a great night out (like we do), and between bars we found a gorgeous little fountain and went swimming (with clothes I might mention). Then we went to another place (and they actually let us in) were we got some free Tequila. It’s the perfect way to survive the heat in Milan: drinks and fountains!
So, in Milan still trying to figure out how to talk Italian, resulting in a lot of interesting food choices and “conversations”. Milan is a complete sauna these days so haven’t been able to bring myself to go out and take pictures just yet. So for now I’ll just leave you with a picture of Steffen – my roomate. One of the few people who actually sleeps as a model – a.k.a. sleep-posing.
