Fine Art Portraits

I am fascinated by the concept of creating my own reality (I even wear a button that says “I reject your reality and substitute my own”). In a way we all do that inside our heads, and I love to play with that in a photo. Maybe that makes it more of an image than a photo, but who cares as long as it’s beautiful/creative/funny, right?

I have a few Fine Art photographers that I really admire who do this (there are so many more that I haven’t even discovered yet!). The first I came across was Beata Ryden and Victoria Söderström through their videocourse on Moderskeppet. Then I discovered Brooke Shaden and her classes at CreativeLive. CreativeLive is the home of A LOT of great photography classes, I have only scratched the surface…

As I am mostly a dog photographer, I look for ways to transform this artform into dog photography. My model of choice is a certain small kelpie, and I want to create her own universe on the edge of reality.

The journey has only just begun…

Plans for 2018

Good morning!

I think 2018 will be a fantastic year. I have online-courses, workshops, photo-sessions, fine art projects, and a book coming up!

This blog, however, will not be updated as often as before. Almost all of 2017 I had the ambition to post about two times a week, and never lived up to it. This year I want to set a goal that motivates me, and doesn’t feel like “work” – this blog is just for fun after all. That means that I will post when I have something on my mind that I want to share. It can be photos that I love, a new fun tip I think you will like, information about workshops and online-classes, or just something I’ve been thinking about.

Make sure you follow me on Facebook, that’s where I’ll keep in touch on a daily (well, not daily but a bit more often than here) basis.

Today the sun is out, the birds are singing, and I’m hoping that the winter will end soon. I have a vacation coming up in 28 days (yey!), Fuerteventura here I come! And I got the first layout on my coming book about dog photography in my inbox this morning, and it’s bea-ti-ful.

Maybe I’ll skip working today, and just grab my camera and go for a walk with my dogs. Who knows what we’ll find?
