Portraits

simen-5

I think it’s incredibly exciting to take portraits. Whether you’re young or old, it’s about to capture one’s personality and bring out the best in a person.
I have taken many portraits over the years, both formal and informal.
If you would like to get your hair and makeup done by a professional before the photo shoot, I work with a highly professional and skilled hairdresser, stylist and makup artist. His name is Frederick Cleverly and is located in Play del Ingles.

Portrait photography can be so many things, whether we are in the studio or at location. I have lights to bring out and other equipment for lighting. Gran Canaria has many exciting places we can use in this setting, both beautiful, urban and cool.

Here are some portraits that I have taken:

Boxing photo shoot with Simen

The other day I had a really cool photo shoot with Simen from Oslo, Norway. Simen and I have known each other for couple of years, we got to know each other when I was working for the Norwegian School, and Simen was working for “Rikshospitalets Behandlingsreiser” at Gran Canaria. I knew he was doing boxing, and I had this idea of doing a photo shoot with him. We have been talking about this for a long time, but due to a large amount of work I have had lately, I haven´t had time to do it. But, since Simen is leaving Gran Canaria...

And imagine having such a incredibly cool principal! Can´t imagine many other principals would do the same, pose for these photos in front of a graffiti wall! And yes, he also made some new friends during the photo shoot. The guys at “Aluminio Asturias” were so kind to lend us their incredible cool door to their workshop, and of course, Svennie had a lot to talk...
