Absolut Insanity / Madness

This is a fictional concept design for the Absolut Vodka range, adding a creative and mad and insane mix to it all. It comes in 2 different variations; “Absolut Insanity” and “Absolut Madness”. All over the bottle there are different figures and random things going on, always something new to read each time you pick up the bottle. I like the Absolut Vodka range and I always wanted to make my own version; here is my take on it:

Field & House

Got two shoots for you today! Well, technically one shoot, but divided into two different sections and themes. The first one was taken out in the fields of Colac, outside Geelong. Me and Lisette drove down for a mini-roadtrip and had a shoot. And I’m quite happy we actually found what we where looking for, a field with a fence, so we could tear up her nylon clothing! We where originally planning on doing 3 themes, but had to cancel the last one because of the massive amount of FLIES! This shoot was on one of Melbourne’s hottest days, it was 40 C outside, and Lisette even blacked out for a second before starting the shoot.

Bathroom Massacre

Blood and gore! Finally got to do a gore shoot. The fake blood was made from all kind of sweet stuff. Chocolate, syrup, cordial and coloured it with food dye. I’m also kinda amazed we managed to fill the whole bathtub, although it being a bit thin at that point. Cool shoot and something different for my portfolio:

Punk in the City

Amee from Perth joined me for a shoot while she was in Melbourne, punky look, little clothing and awesome makeup by Merav Katz. Alphie LaFray was supposed to join us for this shoot, but had to cancel last minute. The shoot went good still. It was done at the edge of the CBD, which equals a lot of crowd and people overall. So we had a few people peeking in during our shoot, but went good for the most part. And the shots ended up awesome:

Urban Textures

This is my paper stock promotion, showing off different types of paper stocks. I chose “Urban Textures” as my theme, so I display different textures and enhance the photos by choosing a paper stock the enhances the overall feel and look for that texture, as an example and way to inspire people how to use this paper stock.

Night Lights

Out of focus lights! Something so simple but yet so beautiful. These shots where taken while filming for the mime video I did. Pictures taken at Degraves St and at the Yarra Bridge in the evening. Not much more to say, enjoy:

J’y Suis Jamais Alle [Video]

I made a video where I visualized the song “J’y Suis Jamais Alle” by Yann Tiersen. It’s a very very french song, and the french feel goes to the listener, or at least it did strongly to me. So I wanted to create a french scenario and video that would go hand in hand with the song. I ended up filming a mime at degraves street and at the yarra bridge with the ferris wheel in the background. It was filmed over 2 days, and hours of editing afterwards… but the end result ended up quite nice.

Model: Lisette Amour

French Mime

While filming J’y Suis Jamais Alle [Mime Video] we also did a few black a white shots. It was shot in black and white to give it more of the french feel, and also since her shirt was blue and black instead of the traditional black and white striped shirt.

Goth Documentary [Video]

This is an interesting project. In our photography class at RMIT we where sent out to document a story, take photos and make a video montage of the photos with audio recording. I had a lot of problems choosing what to do, but eventually I stumbled up on a model named Rebecca that’s a goth… and I made her tell me her story why she’s a goth, and what makes her a goth.

I went home to her place one night when she just finished work and was expecting some friends to come over. I followed her through the process of just being an everyday girl working at target and then changing over to the goth girl. Getting drunk, and partying with friends. Here’s her story:

Emotional

Another of my shoots from my trip to Queensland. This time I shot with Heidi Nuske. We had 2 shoots, but sadly one of them ended up being a bit of a failure, but at least one of the shoots ended up good. I liked how we played around with the water during this shoot, freezing it with the flash.

Kitty cat

Kitty kitty! This was my very first fetish/nude shoot I did, and I had the fellow photographer and model Mad Dame modeling for me for the shoot. We last minute decided to go for a kitty theme, which I think suited the shoot quite good. The shoot was done in my apartment, but I think it worked quite ok still. This was also the first shoot I did after getting my new Canon EOS 5D Mark II, so the original photos are 21 megapixel of goodness!

After school

Finally, I got to do a schoolgirl shoot! Got to admit I have a little fancy for schoolgirls, so was cool to finally get to shoot one myself. This was also my first “official” model in Australia, excluding the event where they where all models I had not been in contact with prior to the shoot. I wanted the shoot to be a bit edgy and flirty, so added the lollipop to give it that feel.

Hotel California

Before I even moved to Australia, I was asked by someone through modelmayhem if I wanted to attend as a photographer as a fashion show in Melbourne, and of course I said yes. It was Romantic Rock’s Hotel California, a 50s inspired clothing range. It just so happened that the event took place just 2 blocks from where I ended up getting an apartment, not knowing where that would be before I moved to Australia.

Rainy beach

And that’s it for the shoots from Norway! This was the very last shoot I had in Norway before I moved to Australia. I moved on July 3rd 2009, so only had a few weeks of preparation before I left. I will probably still post some more “blast from the past” images, but this was the very last shoot none the less.

Lumberjack girl

Trying out something new! Believe it or not, but my model Aud is actually educated as a lumberjack, no joke! I like to show some of the personality to the model in the shoot, to make it more natural for them, instead of putting them into a situation which they either find uncomfortable or can’t relate to at all. Usually just adding some of their twist into the shoot… but this time we decided to do a shoot purely dedicated to her “work”. Not to mention, that’s the last thing you’d expect a model to be educated as.

Messy Backyard

Another of my all time favorite shoots! I was almost on a photo-spree at having shoots in run down and broken locations and back alley. This one we actually just had in someone’s front and backyard. We didn’t really ask for permission to take the photos, but looking at the location I don’t think it would have been the best to ask either, didn’t look like anybody had left their house for many months anyways. Gorgeous model, Hanne, did a good job as well. Youngest model I’ve ever worked with also, but still a very good experience overall.

Badedammen

This was a shoot at Badedammen in Stavanger, Norway. I’m mostly happy with the latter images displaying the city bridge in the background and above, more classic Stavanger and I like how it’s showing a wider location rather than only a background wall as a lot of my pictures are. Or maybe I’m just getting sentimental from being in Australia.

Off the path

Back in early 2009 I was working A LOT with the same models over and over again, which resulted in a bit too many photos being “similar” in the way that it always displayed the same girl/s. So I reached out to meet new models and expand my horizon in photography. Aud was one of the models I got for a shoot to mix things up. Our first shoot together ended up quite good, found a nice back alley right by my University. It’s one of those random back alleys that doesn’t really make sense, just a lot of mess, grass and a door at the end of the alley.
