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:

Editorial: The Toilet

Earlier this year stylist Ellen Mirck created an idea of showing women at their most private moments, and stylistically showing how it’s changed throughout the 20th century. We used only one model and she was completely transformed for each shot, as well as the set. The film was shot by Daniele Testi and the editorial was shot by me.
The film is now part of the fifth ASVOFF film festival at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

Blog and Work

These past few weeks I’ve been working more than ever, which is good. What’s even better is that a lot of it will probably be published in different magazines. The downside is that it’s most likely a few months from now since I’m shooting the new autumn and winter collections of different designers.
And until then, I can’t show you anything. But, I’m gonna get some of the behind the scenes photos and write a little bit about the different projects.
These are from a shoot I did a couple of weeks ago with stylist Ellen Mirck.
Doing a shoot of the new autumn and winter collections in Milanese heat is no picnic, but the result is amazing. Will hopefully be out by September.

Working

I’ve been working hard this week doing some photo-shoots, hence fewer updates on the blog. Just thought I would show you a photo from a shoot I had on wednesday. 
I’ll upload the rest this weekend.
Did another shoot which will come out next week.
