Magnus Cramer Stockholm cosmetics photographers

”It’s funny” says Swedish still life photographer Magnus Cramer. ”Sometimes, when I get to the studio there are literally buckets of lip gloss, mascara and foundation waiting for me. You just don’t dab that on. You work it.”

And work it is exactly what Magnus does. He uses huge amounts of cosmetics to create images for his clients. Spread evenly, and lit meticulously, he uses his photographic skills to create small landscapes in order to live up to his clients' high demands and expectations.

”I enjoy the creativity, locking myself up in the studio and setting out to create the perfect image. Still life photography is all about putting objects in situations that make the bystander stop in his or her tracks. Once I blew up bottles of really expensive whiskey to create that. Let’s just say it worked!”

Clients include Apoteket, Douglas, Electrolux, ICA, L.O.V Cosmetics, Olympus, Oprah, Oriflame, Piz Buin, Reebok, Samsung, Swarovski, Volvo and Tush Magazine.

Allan Trolle Copenhagen still life photographers

"Neither photography nor art has been part of my upbringing. Photography was something that came to me on a trip to Scotland. After returning home, the joy was fantastic when I finally saw the pictures. That became a milestone in my life.

While studying at the Media College Denmark in Viborg, I was surrounded by incredibly inspiring teachers who taught me to have passion for the craft of photography. Care and respect for the image became my driving force during my four educational years.

The driving force remains the same today. It is still the craft that makes beautiful images where light and detail are what matters to me. Every day I let myself be inspired by talented photographers around the world, to seek new knowledge and to keep myself updated in the world of photography.

I am fortunate to work with competent people on assignments for customers like LEGO, Lidl Denmark, Scandic-Hotels, Aller, Turbine Publisher, VPG, Tina Munkholm, Madhimlen, Aros Food Hall, Housedoctor and Arla og BKI-Foods."
