JDB / Æ Studio

I´ve been collaborating with hairdresser Jeremy Davies-Barbala for a while now. I thought I´d share some images and the prosess.

Jeremy approached me about a year back. He had seen my website in search for a photographer in trondheim, and contacted me through mail. We met up an had s shoot a few weeks later. We shot four models in two days in a studio I borrowed at my old school. I had never shot any of the models before, but the results came out great. The shoot was inspired by minimalism and we wanted to capture a “black and white feeling” in color. If that makes any sense… Here are some of the images:

The next shoot we kept same style with the blown-out-white studio background, but this time there were more edgy haircuts and white clothing. I think white-on-white is difficult to keep interesting, but the haircuts were so cool, I think it turned out awsome. This time we did three models in two days.


It´s been fun shooting with Jeremy and seeing a professional hairdresser/stylist with vision. Out next shoot is set early next year.

Change of seasons

We just had the first snowfall here in Trondheim and the temperature is climbing well below zero this week. It seems like it´s only getting colder in the time to come aswell. Winter is coming… well, I guess it´s already here.

Don´t get me wrong, I love winter, but it´s not the best season for photography in my opinion. Basically dark when I go to work and dark when I come back home, so not much time to go outside and shoot in natural light. But even more reason to go outside in the weekend and get some shots when its light, or try to do some studio work in the evenings. Lots to do at work so time will probably fly along until the new year comes. Before that birthdays and christmas, so plenty to look forward to!

Delorean Dreams

As the fourth part of my Project:Drive series, I recently photographed the legendary Delorean DMC-12. I heard about the car from the owner of a TVR previously photographed in this project. I contacted him, and we met in a industrial area on the outskirts of town, a saturday afternoon.

The car represents the 80´s perhaps more then any other car, with it´s hard lines and iconic apperance in the back to the future franchise. It was a blast meeting Bård, the owner and getting the opportunity the shoot the Delorean. A second shoot, this time at night is in the plans.
