Cars and Cameras

This weekend was a great one. It doesn’t matter how hard I try. I can’t hide the fact that I have a thing for gasoline, horsepower and racing. So when Fujifilm Nordic teamed up with Troelsen motorsport, Click Svenborg and Mimosa Foto to create an all day event at Padborg Racing Park in Denmark I…

It was just brought to my attention that feedspot rated my blog at number 17 of 75 of the top 75 blogs and sites for Streetphotographers. Apparently they used google ratings, social media interactions etc etc. I have no idea how they calculated this result, but I like it 😀 When all this is said…

The conundrum of my photographic identity

It’s very upbeat and in-time to write about your personal issues correlated to your art form. I’ve read so many of these posts from various artists that I get quite suspicious as to the reasoning behind said posts. I always suspected alterior, sales-oriented motifs. That is until I started writing them myself. I could suddenly…

Catching up

As I wrote in my last blogpost here, I have been insanely busy since, well, since march 2016. Since the launch of the X100F, GFX, XT20 et al, things have been nice and cozy. That also means time for retrospective editing, and publishing. So I thought I would just make a small post about that.…
