Fashion! Opening night...

Last night was the opening night/party for the new exhibition over at Fotografiska.
Me and my friend Pär went for beers and photos.
The exhibition is kind of a journey through fashion photography.
I really liked it, and if you are in Stockholm, make sure you go there!

It was a good night...

Thanks Jens!

This is just insane...

Custom frame...

So me and Per over at DAMP have been talking about a new frame for me and last night we got it together.
This is for all you nerds. Seat-tube and head-tube angle will be the same as on the classic Cannondale track frame, 62 c-c seat-tube and 60 c-c top-tube.
It will also have a slight downslope on the top-tube and a custom rear-bridge. Chrome fork and rear triangle.
It will most likely be built up with full campa group.
Can´t wait, but it will probably take a while for it to show up, but that means more time to get all the components...

The final sketch...

Having worked with dogs a few times...

I know this had to have taken a while...

A few photos from Berlin

In July I was in Berlin to shoot the new SWEET catalog.
Here are a few of the photos that made it into the catalog.

Boonphotography x Bellows skateboards photo contest

This is the first competition I have had here, and I´m happy to announce that it is a photo contest.
Here´s the idea of the contest: A lot of skate photography look a lot alike today, spots, tricks angles etc.
So basically this is a contest in creativity. Get the most creative skate photo.
Rules are simple:

1 submission per contestant

Lighting, trick, spot etc. as well as retouch will be judged

Submission must be in before at the latest 1 October 00.00 CET (central European time)

Send in your submissions to:

Jury consists of me and the Bellows team

Winners will win Bellows stuff (both rider and photographer)

Go out and shoot now...

A day out with the Bellows team...

Filmed and edited by Isak Lindberg...

This one looks interesting

Could be perfect as a everyday camera.

FinePix X100


Went to my parents this weekend and took the chance to get out in the woods surronding their house to shoot some large format.
But after about two sheets of film, the shutter in the lens gave up. I must say I´m impressed that it held for as long as it did.
Anyway, now I need to save up some money for a new lens for the Pacemaker, still got my Sinar though so you might see some more large format photography here...

Only two shots that I got yesterday.

Ali interview in Transworld Skateboarding

Got my first photo published in a American skate Magazine.
The funny about this photo was that it was never meant to be anything.
I was sitting in my car waiting for Ali to come back from his fathers restaurant.
When i began to cross the street I started too shoot some spontaneous shots.
Didn´t think anymore about it untill Mackenzie Eisenhour at Transworld contacted me, wanting a photo of Ali for this interview.
Looking throu all the photos I had of him I found this one among others and sent a bunch over.
I was kind of supprised that they choosed this one, but now I think works really good in there...

Koffe east coast tour is over for this time...

Due to rain and a sore body, Koffe and Isak went back to Trollhättan today.
It was a good weekend guys and I´m looking forward to the next time.
Now I´m back behind the desk to start working on the article for the east coast tour.

HDR filming...

I´m mot a fan of HDR I must say.
It does look interesting when it´s filmed over the city, but a person just looks fucked up, on film and photo, doesn´t matter.

Starting to think about building a motorcycle

Thinking about it more and more. Got a place too build it in so now I just need the cash and knowledge.
I´m hoping to get started in January and be done by spring. Probably go away on a intensive course to get the license around that time to.

Found this little clip of Shinya Kimura, witch I thought was fitting now...

Went to Uppsala today and got one photo of Gunez and one of Koffe.
Koffe actually skated the rail you see in the clip. High short and steep, just how he likes them.

Koffe Eastcoast Tour continues...

Bad weather and sore legs was the melody for the day and Koffe manage to pull of the top of this shoe after just three days of skating in them.
After this he found a stump in a gap to road witch he wanted to do a ollie nollie/nosebonk on. And so he did.
Got a nice shot of it too.
Tomorrow it´s suppose to rain but if it don´t we will go to Uppsala to hook up with Gunez.

Night mission

Koffe and Isak came up to Stockholm today to spend the weekend to film and shoot photos in Stockholm and Uppsala.
Tomorrow Gunez is joining us also.

Just got back from a little night mission with the to shoot at a rail-gap in Årsta.
Turned out thre was a truckdriver that was sleeping in his truck when we came. He didn´t mind the generator and the sound of skating tough.
We ended up getting what we came for and a bonus trick that I didn´t shoot.

So tomorrow it´s new missions if the weather alow it.


I had orgott about this, but when I was on the latest tour in Umeå I saw theis lightbox at Stale with my photos in it.

Another photo of Ali

Shot this last night at the office using my homemade ringlight and the Pacemaker.
Probably do a big print on this one along the line but for now it´s just the web.
Now I´m off to do his wedding gift...

3D foamcloud printer

Pretty cool, and it´s a pretty easy solution to it.
Would be pretty cool to see realy big ones in the sky...

Swapmeet went well

Thanks everybody that showed up at the swap. Tons of people were there swaping, selling and buying.
I got some stuff sold and bought a set of Campa record pista cranks (the new ones with the old shield logo) with a black Dura Ace chainring and a Dura Ace/Easton seatpost.

Brought my camera by never got around to shoot any photos, guess that is proof that I had a good time.

Evil Vending Machine on Flickr manage to get a few good ones, here´s one of them.
