Dear friends of photography,

My SPECIALITY is to illuminate and photograph aircraft, boats and other large objects in real life & full action.

That we do with a purpose built & unique photo-flash-system that we originally built for photography in the marine & aviation industry.

My professional photography career started with ski photography in the the early 80's when I brought flash photography to the high mountains. At the dawn of the new millennium I managed to prove my powerful flash photography for the aviation industry and that thanks to a fantastic collaboration with the Swedish Air Force.

The one-of-its-kind 250kg heavy CMP A-System, aka Algot Flash System, is sealed for protection at sea & shielded electro-magnetically for operation on board aircraft and approved by the Swedish Defense Material Administration and the US Coast Guard.

When you like to capture a clear image of e.g. a large ship in a beautiful sunrise and not only show it as a dark silhouette, then there is no substitute for an additional and very intense light source.

Foreword to my BOOK by Jay Miller, cofounder of The International Society for Aviation Photography:

"I like to think of Claes as a visionary. No other photographer - much less aviation photographer - on the planet has done what he has done."

My Airborne Flash Photography is an unique creative photographic tool for marketing in the marine- & aviation business, which is also for suitable for more subject matters, on land, at sea and in the air.

Please feel free to click the links above & below and let us show you what we got!
