When planning out summer, I toyed with the idea of a trip to Stockholm, well, that finally happened! Yeah!!! I’ve wanted to take the step to travel in order to meet up and work with artists and photographers that I admire, and this trip was part of that.

I can be so last minute and especially not together with practical stuff at times, and it was pretty last minute that I booked my tickets, and I really, nearly got cold feet. I would be going alone, and working with, and staying with people I’d never met, and although I tend to be a risk taker, I’m also a little scared of new people.

But, there is nothing, nothing, like a change of scenery to clear the head and give a bit of perspective. I’m SO glad I went. While there I met and worked with 3 very amazing, talented and just great people.

Reflecting on my little model/photo-art journey, I feel my direction, with photos, has changed. It’s become very much more about expressing something, I want to put my life and my experiences into the concepts I work with, and it feels like it’s become a much more personal creation than it was when I started with Pinup.

Here is a selection of the set I did with Per Anders Nilsson. You can find his work here on INSTAGRAM

The other set is coming in a different blog post. Annndddd, there are more of my photos at the links below:

This was my first weekend in the Stockholm area. Aside from the photoshoots I had a night out, got a couple bruises, earned a very nasty hangover, met new photographers and friends, and we made some amazing photos! Definitely need more of these trips!

Thank you PerAnders Nilsson, Angelbear Photo & Kim Roshang for being amazing!
