Stockholm From Above

The other day I had the pleasure of taking a helicopter ride above Stockholm City. I brought the new Hasselblad X1DII to try out for Hasselblad and the camera really performed over my expectations. It’s just something with a medium format camera that really gets me going. I tried to focus more on the uncommon spots of Stockholm rather then going for the more familiar spots (Eventough i got those aswell). I was actually a bit surprised myself of how beautiful this evening became.

Here is a small collection of the images i took from this evening.

And as the sun was about to set and we where on our way back we spotted these two hot air ballons having a good time above Stockholm. So we followed them until sunset.

And a few words about the camera. The Hasselblad X1DII . After playing around a little with Hasselblads previous generation the Hasselblad X1D, I have to say that the upgrade is just stronger, faster & better. As soon as I had taken my first pictures I just felt that the camera and I connected. Watching those beautiful colors come to life on the live view just made me wanna go home and watch the images in full.

Dolomites, The Aerial Journey

Recently got back home from the Dolomites, My home away from home. In the Dolomites i got to spend a couple of great days with my friends and fellow Aerial photographers from UK Abstract Aerial Art. The guys made a small movie from our gathering and it became a little story of me doing what i do.

Autumn in the Dolomites is nothing less then pure magic. This is where you most likely will find me during the October months. Here is a few images from this years adventure.

This year is also the first year where you can join me in the Dolomites. Together with Emma Svensson i’m hosting a photography workshop in the Dolomites and we still got a few spots left for our second trip as you can find Here

BE YOURSELF AND EXPLORE THE THINGS YOU WANT TO SEE

I was very interested in photographing things that, from the ground, didn’t actually look as appealing as I thought they would from a bird’s-eye point of view. That’s how my journey with aerial photography began.

So I kept exploring and playing around with environments and subjects that interested me until I found what worked. You have to be yourself if you want to be successful in drone photography. By that, I mean you must photograph and film the things that stand out to you. Shoot it like you see it. The more honest you can be to yourself in your images, the more they will stand out to others.

BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS

Knowing your location before taking to the sky will help you prevent accidents. Scout the location from the ground, if at all possible. The more you know about the environment, the better your photography will be.

ALWAYS BE OUTSIDE, TRYING DIFFERENT LOCATIONS

The only way to better your chance of capturing something amazing is to get out and shoot. Experiencing different locations and environments will only further challenge you to push the capabilities of your drone.

Eventually, you’ll know a good drone spot before you even see it from the air.

STAY CURIOUS

The curiosity I have of seeing something new for the first time is what drives me. I love seeing things from a perspective no one has ever seen before.

If you’re not curious, why did you get a drone in the first place?
