Riksbyggen (commercial work)


Commercial retouch. I created this image for swedish Riksbyggen’s ad campaign this winter. Lots of different photographs were mixed and blended together to create this fairytale fantasy world. Photographer: Niklas Alm

Land Rover (3D/CGI)


Car workshop. I’ve done most of the CGI work in this image, from matching the 3D car with the photo, creating shaders, lighting and rendering using Maxwell Render. I modelled the kayak on the roof, reshaped the tires in Zbrush and retopologized and added lots of details on the car. I also took care of the final retouch of the image.

New print campaign on town! (3D/CGI)

This morning I was happy to see the latest campaign I’ve been working on, printed all over Stockholm. I have done all five images during a three weeks period, including all 3D, lighting, rendering and retouch. All coffee mugs and drinks are 3D renders, while the bananas and cinnamon buns are shot in our studio.

Worldwide advertising campaign (retouch)

I made this series of images for a past retouching studio I worked for. The campaign was used worldwide so I had to change language for each country that used them. The coolest ads I did was the one for Russia and one for Japan. Both used their own special letters and characters, which made it pretty tricky to do a perfect layout in the beginning.

BMW 330 ”The desert chase” (photo & retouch)

This is a personal photo and retouch project that I did back in 2005. At that time I was working in one of the bigger retouch studios in Stockholm and car retouch was one of my main jobs.

I was really inspired to try and photograph a car myself, so one weekend I brought a friend with me to a suburb south of Stockholm and we found this small closed road that would do fine for the photoshoot. I had some ideas for the final image and the concept was simple, but I needed to capture one sharp photo of the car in motion (which I would later retouch the crap out of :)). I used real film (I didn’t own a digital SLR camera then), so there was no room for any mistakes.

I photographed my friend in his BMW from the window of my Mini Cooper. We drove slowly, about 15-20 km/h, but that was enough to capture the motion and sense of speed in the scene. The desert and mountains in the background were created from several other photos and the helicopter I found on Google. I thought that it would add to the feeling of a chase!
