Dear Friends of Photography,

My speciality is to photograph & illuminate aircraft, boats & other big objects in real life, with a very powerful & one-of-its-kind flash. The imagery we create I call "Airborne Flash Photography". We certainly also work in solely existing light.

I started my professional career in the early 80's shooting sailing & travel and in the 90's I brought flash photography to new heights with ski photography. At the turn of the millennium we built a very powerful, but still portable flash, the 250 kg heavy Algot Flash System for Airborne Flash Photography and approved it for operation in the aviation industry, thanks to collaboration with the Swedish Air Force and US Coast Guard.

My Airborne Flash Photography is an unique creative photographic tool for marketing in the marine- & aviation business. We also operate our Algot Flash System for other subject matters, on land & at sea.

So when you like to capture a clear image of e.g. a large ship in a beautiful sunrise and not only show man's craft or big wildlife as a dark silhouettes, then there is no substitute for an additional and very intense light source to make a real photograph.

Please feel free to view a 8 minutes video presentation of my Airborne Flash Photography at the first Xposure International Photography Festival and our sunset & sunrise photography at Skydive Dubai.

Don't hesitate to get in touch and let us show you what we can, to illuminate your vision !
