Going to church with Mike Sheridan!

I spent a whole day with Mike Sheridan a few weeks ago . He was playing in Brorsons Church, and had invited people in for a real musical treat. I went out to Mike's house around 4 o'clock, where Mike was working on his set and was really exited about it. The more I listened to it, the more I couldn't wait. His plan for the night, was to play on "real" machines and give the viewers/listeners a moment of total enjoyment and daydreaming.

Adidas All In
A'lot of things have change for me since october and at one point, I kinda felt lost in my own mind. Everything about photography became more work for me than joy, I moved out of my old apartment, that I shared with someone very special to me. All the sudden I felt, all I had was photography. I thought, I had lost a piece of myself and couldn't keep my focus on it anymore.
I'd even considered to put my camera on the shelf for awhile, just so I wouldn't loose my passion for it. I talked with some good friends about how I felt and they were very supportive and told me not to. Maybe what I needed was to get away from Copenhagen and get a new perspective on things. Just go and experience something totally new and forget those things, that are not needed to be remembered. They were right, after I came home from Hong Kong, I've found back my taste, passion and got my bag filled with some new inspiration. All I needed was to ignore the few negative things and focus on all the positive, that was there all along.

Whatever makes you fall, makes you stronger!!
My Passion for Photography, have never been bigger than it is now!!

Adidas contacted me last week and asked me to come in for a meeting. I've worked with them before and have a really good relationship to them. But What I thought were going to be another photojob, I was wrong. Some of you might have heard about the new campaign, that Adidas are launching, called Adidas All In. It is going to be a big fusion mixed with sport, music, art and fashion, all put into one brand. People like Lionel Messi, Caroline Wozniacki, Katy Perry, Jeremy Scott and B.O.B and etc, are one of those faces who are going to represent Adidas All In, on a global plan. So as we speak, Adidas Denmark are preparing on a local launch here in Denmark, with 10 ambassadors who all have that one thing in common, which is great passion in what they love to do. So I am very glad and proud to announce, that I am one of those faces in Denmark, who are going to be a part of Adidas's new campaign!
With me on my side, are Stanley Most the grime musician, Copenhagen’s miss everything Maria Schlüter, professional soccer player Nicki Bille Nielsen, musicians Kenton/Slash demon, Adidas team-skater Laurent Hervé Gehin and more.

Have a great saturday night peeps
tonight we will celebrate our passion
that keeps us doing what
we love the most!!

And don't forget

Good things comes to those who expect it!

Assistens kirkegården

So spring has officially arrived. The sun were shining and no clowds were there to be spottet.
I've never been to the Assistens graveyard in those 6 years, that I have been living in Copenhagen. So why not let today be the day. Nothing much happen there, but I've got some few shots out of it:-D

Efterklang, end of tour!

The first time I've ever heard Efterklang(emembrance), was back in 2007. I was introduced to the music By the leadsinger's littlebrother Lasse who asked me to come to their 2nd album released in Copenhagen, Nørrebro. I was instantly touched by their music and have been a big fan of them ever since. Their music goes under the category, indie rock and they have released 3 studio albums. Tripper 2004, Parades 2007 and Magic Chairs 2010. The album Magic Chairs, won the IMPALA's European Independent Album of the Year on February 28.

They recently collaborated with the french filmmaker Vincent Moon, to do a short movie, which was packed with performances, experiments and collaborations.
The movie "An Island" premiered February 1st 2011 around the world through what the band and director called Private-Public Screenings. Anyone could host a Private-Public Screening and the rules were very simple. The screening needed to be public, have a minimum capacity of 5 people and free entrance. I had my own screening with around 15 people in my apartment. It was tight, but worth the while!

After the screening, Lasse told me that Efterklang were having their "last" concert in Copenhagen on the 18th of march, before they start working on their 4th album. Since I've never really heard them live before, I thought to myself I definetly had to go this one. So the days before, I planned that I was going there without my camera, but as always I knew I would proberly regret it. So I wrote to the guys and asked if they would mind having a photographer follow them during the soundcheck and concert?! They answered right away and said: You are welcome:-D

Soundcheck with Efterklang

The concert

I only got one word to say about the concert:

Thanks guys, your music has helped me through hard times and gave me a'lot of joy, when I needed it the most!
