Andreas Lind Stockholm advertising photographers
Andreas Lind was born in Stockholm in 1972 and has been into people ever since. He's fast. He's flexible. He gets the job done. He's fun to be around. Hard work suddenly seems like a day off.
Andreas' specialty is taking pictures with a contemporary touch, using natural light and natural emotions. His pictures never look staged. He is great with all kinds of people, from babies to celebrities to prime ministers, perhaps because he doesnt take himself too seriously. He takes his job dead seriously though.
Andreas has a nice studio in downtown Stockholm for all those times when the natural Swedish light is not enough.
Mattias Edwall Stockholm portrait photographers
"I photograph people, this is how I see it, whether it's a fashion assignment or a classic portrait. Right now, I'm working on a book of circus characters.
"The more pictures I take, the less difference there is between them. Regardless of whether it's a fashion, portrait or advertising job, I try to build a character that reaches out, every time.
"Photos must smell a bit. They assume a dimension that you may not be able to take on, but that creates a mood. My motto is that all images should tell a story."
