Almost done.

I'm almost done with the editing and minor retouching of my 469052405u2052 images. That number being a slight exaggeration. Everything about this shoot(except for how long it took) was as usual, meaning:

-I consumed several energy drinks during the day and didn't eat lunch.
-I was the shortest person there.
-I'm still tired. Believe it or not, it's hard work.
-I improvised a lot.
-I'm not fully content with the results.
-Everything is about me.

Also, I just saw something hilarious in a picture from last week.

Check out the guy behind my friend with his hand down that girl's crotch. She sure snagged a classy one. Well, at least her tramp-stamp isn't on her forehead.

I'm currently looking over the pictures from yesterdays 10 hour shoot, retouching all of them is pretty much going to take up my entire day today and tomorrow. It's a lot of fucking work. I should probably start with a break. Perfect.

Also, you guys should have a look my friends Jojo&Malou's latest show from London fashion week:

"I'll do to her what douchebags did to the guitar."

As promised, here are pictures from this last week, including my birthday. Definitely one of the more fun birthdays in the last year.

I hate you(above, not below).

Next year, Lula.

I bought the new Lula today, you guys should really check it out, if they sell it in your city. If you're in New York, they definitely have it in the best magazine shop I've ever been to. I'm not sure what it's called but it's on Prince st between Thompson and Sullivan. The only thing that sucks, is that you can't sit down and read the magazines there, since it's a shop, not a café. But in terms of fashion & photography magazines, they have everything, seriously. That place is like what heaven would be like if it actually existed.

Also, plans for next summer are already being made. I'm not sure it's possible, but 2009 might actually top 2008. Two awesome roadtrips might be involved, but we're still waiting on confirmation from important, yet not very likely participants(Seth McFarlane, Amanda Lepore & Sting).

Tip of the day: Do the truffle-shuffle.

I have so many pictures on my computer that you guys haven't seen. Maybe I should post them?

New York > Paris & London

I had a meeting today with one of my absolute favorite magazines and it looks like I'll start shooting for them in November, I can't wait. It's one of the few magazines I actually buy because both the pictures and articles are great. For instance, there are magazines I get mostly for the images(Self-Service, Exit, Lula etc) and there are ones I get more so for the reading(Muse, Amelia's, Purple etc.). This one is a great combination of both. I know I'm always too fucking mysterious regarding photo-details but I messed up a publication in the past, and I don't intend on doing so again. Hence, I will only post detailed info regarding shoots after the issue actually hits the stand. I also dropped off my book with one of the major fashion publications today, but that's more of a long shot. I'm picking it up tomorrow, I guess we'll have to see. Oh, and I might shoot again this week-end for the American magazine I've already been working with, which is great. From November on, I'll be less mysterious about these kind of things, I promise.

Also, I saw "Burn after reading" two days ago, and "Elegy" last night. Burn after reading was really funny sometimes. The rest of the time, it was trying to be really funny. I'd give it a 5/10. Penelope Cruz might play one of the most enchanting characters I've ever seen in "Elegy". I have a serious crush on that woman. Her character was almost as good as Claire Danes character in "Igby goes down" or Kirsten Dunst in "Virgin Suicides".

Anyways, wish me luck in my upcoming photo-endeavors. Here's another sneak-peak of the photos to come.

loft fun & games

A quick preview of the pictures from this last week. I'll probably post all of them within a couple of days. Stay put.

Also, I must say, I've always been a sucker for Ludacris. If nothing else, he carries this song, for sure.

T.I - On top of the world(feat Ludacris and B.O.B)

More pictures from the last week(including my birthday) will arrive shortly.

Book him, Danno.

Sorry I haven't updated you guys in a while. I've done two shoots, one turned out alright, the other ones so-so. For obvious reasons, I can't show them here, but when the magazines hit the stands, I'll let you know where you can get them. To make up for the lack of updates, here are some disposables from the last week or so. In other news, I despise blogspots picture-upload-thingy. Also, my birthday is coming up. You may send all presents to Brooklyn, New York. Here is my wish-list:

-An animal that is nearly extinct. So that I can keep him/her alive.
-A re-adoption invite. From Google Inc, if possible.
-Another Tattoo.
-A mini-camera that specializes in filming how the fuck your headphones always tangle up in your pocket, even if you haven't moved an inch.
-The same thing, but this camera captures how one always manages to loose at least one sock while doing laundry.
-A free plane-ticket to Vietnam. So that I can mail it to Obama's charming opponent.
-For someone to bring back The Face.
-For someone to make Brit-pop popular again, and then credit me.
-A midget entourage, riding on those wolf-things from Lord of the rings, singing my theme-song.
-A basketball.
-A slide that goes from my door to Gothenburg, so I can hang out with my best bud. Preferably a spiral slide.

I think that should cover it.
