Lotta på Liseberg the 4th of Augusti with artists as Kim Cesarion, Andreas Weise, The Comment Linnets and Frida!

I don't have much to say about this day. I had a great day with Felicia and Frida on set of Lotta på Liseberg. It was nice meeting Kim again, and to see Weise live after a long time. Other than that, I will let the pictures speak for themselves!

My beautiful friend Felicia!

A while back, Felicia asked me to shoot some photos of her which she was going to hand-in to a modeling agency. The sun was really bright that day and it was a bit hard to shoot, but I think we managed to get some pretty good shots anyway. Or what do you think?
P.S. Follow Felicia on Instagram for more beautiful pictures of her and to see what she's up to when she isn't with me. ;)

Lotta på Liseberg the 28th of July, with artists as Molly Sandén, Robin Stjernberg and more!

Once again it was time to go to Liseberg for a show of "Lotta på Liseberg". The guests for this show was: Molly Sandén, Robin Stjernberg, Juha Mulari, Caroline Af Uglas and Martin Stenmark.
This time, I spent the day with different people. The day started with Frida and since she wasn't going to see the show later that evening, we went a bit early to see if she could meet some of the artists. We were lucky to meet Molly and Martin for a quick chat. They were really lovely, Martin even compliment me about knowing how to take our photos in the best way we could.
(Yes, I know I look a bit small beside Martin. Haha.) 
Later that day, Annelie joined us for the dress rehearsals. During it, we got the opportunity to meet the lovely Danny Saucedo. He was just the coziest ever, and I can't thank him enough for always taking his time to talk to us. 
After the dress rehearsal, Frida went home and Annelie and I got ready for the tv broadcast. The show was great and I absolutely LOVED when Robin sang "Stay With Me" by Sam Smith. Here's a link to his performance during the dress rehearsal (since I didn't find any link from the broadcast) if you want to hear it:
(Beautiful Molly sang her new single "Freak" which is really good and has an important message in it that you should listen to.)
As always there's a signing after the show, Annelie went home and I was satisfied with the day but I decided to stick around since Felicia was there with a friend. Felicia's friend hadn't really been at a show like this before, so I helped them meet some of the artists during the signing. 
I ended up talking to Robin and took a quick picture with him as well. He's such a nice guy and he really takes his time to make sure everyone gets a picture or an autopgrah from him. Big credits to him!

Roadtrip to Borås to see Kim Cesarion!

A couple of weeks ago, Felicia and I did a roadtrip to Borås to see Kim Cesarion! 
If you some how don't know who Kim Cesarion is, he's a swedish singer which has released his debut album not too long ago. He's mostly famous for his song "Undressed" and his unique voice in falsetto. 
We were really excited to see him since we both love his album and thinks he's a great artist in many ways. We arrived in Borås around 5pm so we didn't go too early which was great since people wasn't really waiting by the stage.
At 9pm it was time for the show, and it was abolutely fantastic! The only thing that made me a bit disappointed was that Kim wore his sunglasses almost all the time during the whole concert. Despite he wore his glasses, he did a really good job with interacting with the audience and got them pumped up!
All of his songs had a high quality and his stage precense really shine through! One thing that I loved was that they had put the drummer more at the front of the stage so the audience could see him too! That was really unique in it's own, since a you never usually see the drummers at all. 
After the show, we got the opportunity to thank him for the show. He insisted to take a picture with us despite that we said we should try to take one at Liseberg when he performs there instead, since he wasn't allowed for the security to come out. 
This picture though, haha. 

Denmark July 2014

As I've written before, I went to Denmark for a vacation. We were there for more than a week and was camping in our caravan. Despite that I'm not a camping person and really HATES insects, I had fun!

Throwback thursday: H.E.A.T. at Sticky Fingers

Since I'm going to see H.E.A.T. today and haven't posted the pictures from the day at Sticky Fingers yet, I thought I would do a throwback thursday for you! - Enjoy!

Photographing at Way Out West!

Last week, Way Out West was held in Gothenburg. For those who doesn't know what it is, it's one of Sweden's biggest music festivals. In many years, I've been curious how it is at a festival and this year I got the opportunity to photograph during one. 
As a photographer for Popmani, I got to be one of the photographers to report from Way Out West. It was my first time attending a music festival and also having a photo pass. It was a strange feeling to be in the photo pit instead of the audience. I had so much space to move around and I had to think about where I should stand to get my pictures as good as possible. 
It was interesting to see how the press and people within the media and music industry are working behind the scenes. If you only knew how much more work there is behind the concerts, articles and the videos people are making. 
Despite the lack of sleep, and insecurity I felt since my camera equipment was nowhere as good as the others,  I had so much fun photographing during the festival. OutKast, Veronica Maggio and Mapei were few of those artists that I photographed. I also shot some streetstyle with Ellen from the fashion editorial staff for our website.
You can go to http://popmani.se to see the pictures I took, but also read the articles the editorializer wrote about the concerts. Plus there's more pictures from the other photographer which was there to shoot as well. 
This was a really good experience to get and I learned a lot from it. I'm grateful for getting the opportunity to do this! 

"Lotta på Liseberg" 14th of July with JTR, Oscar Zia, Shirley Clamp and more!

Before I took a vacation to Denmark, I went to Liseberg with Frida to spend the day at "Lotta på Liseberg". If you know me well, you probably knew that I attend "Lotta på Liseberg" with my friends every summer to see the show, which is really fun!
That day, it was actually mine and Frida's first time on set for this year, so it was really nice to be back! Same people were there, the nice guards as well and the show was as good as always! I really like the atmosphere there. Everyone are just happy to see the show and excited to meet their idols.
This time the guests for the show was JTR, Oscar Zia, Shirley Clamp, Magnus Carlson and Linus Svenning. We were mainly there to see JTR but also Magnus since he has been my childhood-idol for such a long time now! It was nice to see the others as well!
Since it was JTR's debut tv-performance here in Sweden, it was really exciting to see what kind of response they would get. It was funny how they seemed to got a lot of new fans already at the dress rehearsal! 
Afterwards, the artists had a signing. We thought it would be fun to say hi to everyone so we sticked around for it. 
Next time I think we should let someone else take the picture since John didn't really do a good job with capturing all five of us. xD
We also spotted Mattias Andreasson, which I think is working as Oscar's tour manager? Anyway, as a former E.M.D. fan I had to say hi to him. It was lovely to see him again, I kinda miss the old E.M.D. times. 
And yes, I know my photo with him is very blurry, but blame Frida. ;')
We also got to talk to Magnus which was really nice and he was amazed over the fact that I've been a fan since he was in Alcazar! Which is about 12 years ago! 
To sum up this day, I think you could tell that we had a very nice day! I'm glad that I got to share it with Frida and it was nice to see her as well!

"...Laleh looked like a disney princess on stage!"

A couple weeks ago, I went to Liseberg with Daniela to see Laleh.
I've been listening to Laleh a bit time from time, but I hasn't really been a proper fan of her. Daniela in the another hand is a bigger fan of her and it was nice to attend the concert with her! Despite that I haven't really listened to Laleh that much lately, I knew a lot more of her songs that I thought I would.
Laleh was incredible on stage, and her humbleness really shine through her during the whole concert. She kept thanking people for coming and for their support and she was genually humble towards her audience and the band behind her.
One thing I liked about her set, was that she kinda told a story between her songs which was related to her songs and made her concert a bit unique. 
I just loved every single moment of the concert and Laleh looked like a disney princess on stage!

Sorry for my absence!

I'm really sorry for my absence these past few weeks. I've been busy working on some projects and I've also been on a vacation in Denmark for a while. I have so many new pictures to show and I hope you will stick around to see them!
The first set of pictures will be uploaded later today so stay tuned if you are curious to see them!
