Dear friends of photography,

My specialty is to illuminate aircraft, boats and other large objects in real life. That we do with our powerful and purpose built photo-flash-system for the marine & aviation industry, the CMP A-System for Airborne Flash Photography.

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

Our one-of-its-kind n' state-of-the-art 250kg flash equipment, is not only sealed for protection at sea, but also shielded electro-magnetically for operation on board aircraft. It is approved by the Swedish Defense Material Administration.

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

Word to my book by Jay Miller, founder of ISAP:
"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. Lighting, of course, is only a part of the game. It doesn't hurt that Claes has a superb eye for composition, exposure, and subject matter. His photos, no matter what time of day they are taken, are always exceptional, innovative, and masterful."

Our Airborne Flash Photography, is not only a powerful and unique creative photographic tool for marketing in the marine- & aviation business, but also for many more subject matters, as construction machines, transportation, buildings & etc.
