Snø Designstudio

SNØ  is an industrial design company based in Fredrikstad, one hour from Oslo, Norway. I photographed the talented designers for their rebranding process last year. We used the wonderful locations in the building as well as a studio shoot. Here’s a small selection of what we did:

The Absence of Your Company

Having spent this whole week with a fever and bed rest (which is painfully anti-social), I am now very happy to be well and ready to work! Tomorrow I go back in the studio for a beauty shoot and tuesday working with TOD’s. Also, I’ve been finishing up most of my work load, 
including outtakes from my shoot with Leica.

All’s Not Lost

A few weeks ago, representatives from Leica contacted me and asked if I wanted to use their new camera Leica S2 for one of my future projects. I of course said yes because it’s an amazing brand (the S2 alone costs about € 20.000,- but gives amazing quality). So I did 2 editorials over 2 days, the first of which is shown underneath. It’s called “All’s Not Lost.”

Martine Marbel covershoot

So I sent over the pictures from the photo-shoot with Martine Marbel to Universal Music. They went for 5 pictures including a cover for her next single! They wanted the cover in black & white, but I also liked the version with a vintage colour scheme look. What do you like?

New Single, scheduled for release in June: Martine Marbel – Fix this

Studio Work

Managed to get a bit of retouching done before going to work. These are pictures of Kristina Knaben Hennestad, Norwegian actress, whom I also went to school with back in the day. Hope you like.

And, when I find the time, I’m gonna show you the rest. 

Oh lordy lord, I need time to retouch

This tuesday I was  in the studio, again, and did a shoot with my fabulous make-up artist Kine who did body-paint on the model. She was completely covered in gold. But again, I need time to retouch them! Also there’s some cool studio-pictures from last week as well.

Right now I have to run out and take care of some paperwork, but thought I’d leave a little sneak-peak of the look from tuesdays shoot.

Also, as usual – I’m the testmodel

Studio shoots

Here is a couple of finished pictures from the photo-shoot I had on tuesday with actress Yngvild Støen Grotmol ( She needed some promotional pictures and we did a few looks for her. One of the looks was the 50’s style (I have that one in colour as well, but I loved the more black & white feel to it) and the second one is a more basic, sweet headshot. In total we chose 7 pictures, and I’m still working on the rest. Also, today I did another photo-shoot with another actress, it went really well and we ended up with a bunch of pictures I’m gonna get done later on.
