About a month ago I had my first real photoshoot as a photographer at John Dee nightclub in Oslo, Norway. Which is pretty awesome and I got 3 new gigs that I’m working on with friends but there is a little planning left.
However my first gig where a concert photography for my favorite party band in Oslo, Norway called Awesomesauce (Check them out here at Facebook or web page here). Honestly a great party band especially if you grew up during the 90’s or 00’s.
Got a call a few days before the concert where they asked me if I would like the work as their photographer during the concert. What’s pretty awesome is that I got almost complete access which where real cool to get that close to the band and the audience. So just hade a few days to prepare but it was awesome. Here is the result and please leave a comment below about which one is your favorite photo and what you think about them.
So half way though this week as well and it just passes me by som fast right now. But i can’t forget last weekend in Oslo. I had a extra day of because it was a public holiday in Sweden. So I took of to Oslo. Anyway during friday I started with stocks and we got guest and then we hit Oslo where we saw a concert with my favorit partyband Awesomesauce that have a playlist filled with guilty pleasure music from the 90s’ and until today. Music that I’ve listend to when I grew up and still listens to. Then me and my girlfriend G knows half the band but still they are real great. I’m sure they will show up later in the blog again during this year. After that there was a DJ with similar music and we dance until the morning came. Can’t remember when I danced all night last time. But it was so fun.
Saturday G and our guest just hung out in Oslo and where home and played games and sunday me and the guest drove back to Gothenburg, Sweden again. Awesome weekend.
Sunday and I’m in the Göteborg area over the weekend. Got to be honest pretty nice to here. It got a special place in my heart. Friday night we (me and my girlfriend G) arrived to Kungälv and had BBQ with her parents which where real nice. Yesterday we visited my home town Kungsbacka and meet up with my dad and his girlfriend and took his new boat out on the the fjord there and dad tried his new fishing equipment and we took a swim and had a classic Swedish fika before we headed back to the main land.
Then me and G drove into here sister K in Göteborg and had dinner and after that we went on the Håkan Hellström concert at Ullevi (Håkan Hellström is among the biggest Swedish artists today and Ullevi is a big outdoor arena) and we also broke the arena record with 70.000 in the audience. An amazing evening and buggy and now I’ve just woken up in Kungälv and its time to start the day. What did you do yesterday?
Today I’m renting a car and will drive down to Göteborg, Sweden from my home here in Oslo, Norway. Is not that long drive and me and my girlfriend G does it from time to time over the weekends.
This weekend the plan is to celebrate some birthdays. I turned 29 a few weeks ago, my girlfriend G have birthday on Monday and here dad later that week so we will celebrate all of us this weekend.
Saturday is also the big concert day. Me, my girlfriend G and here sister K will go and see Håkan Hellström. Is a Swedish artist from Göterborg and comes from the indiepop genre and that kind of grew into one of the most popular artist in Sweden. The concert will be on the legendary arena New Ullevi and I think it will be somewhere around 60 000 – 70 000 people there so it will be amazing. Is a also nice weatherreports which makes it even better because it’s an outdoor arena. By the way in the 80’s Bruce Springsteen played here and the concert damaged the arena so they had to rebuild parts of it in order to fix it. That a hell of a concert!
I also hope to get some time to stop by dad and check out his new and first real boat but will see if there is time for that. I hope so.
Yesterday where Sunday and as you might know me and G visited the picnic in the park festival with artists as Marit Larsen who I really liked. A new Norwegian country band named Nothern Belle which very skilled musicians. Then we also watched artists as Modeat Mouse, James Blake and Jose Gonzales to mention a few.
But not only the music where good and interesting. Also the food where great. A lot of food trucks that we saw and tried pulled pork burgers, tacos and burritos which all tasted great.
