2017 – A Year of Change

000_2017_A_Year_of_Change

On New Year’s Eve 2016 I made one of the hardest decisions in my life: I resigned from my dream job. At this point in time I had taken a break from photography to go and work at Our Chalet, an international scout and guide center in the Swiss Alps. At first I could not believe my luck when I got the job! I was going to work for Scouts and Guides and give back to an organization that had given me so much in my life. I fell in love with the picturesque village of Adelboden, and I really loved all the amazing people I was working with. But after a year in the office I had come to realize that I did not love the job. I was working very long hours and I had very little time for other things. It didn’t matter that my office had the best view in the world, I just wanted to spend more time outside the office. I wanted more time for my photography adventures, more time for my friends and family, and more time for me. So I quit.

I had three months notice and some vacation days to use, so in the end I stayed in Switzerland for another four months. I landed in Sweden on May 10th and did not have any plans except shooting a wedding at the end of the month. I decided to look for a part time job while I was getting my business up and running again. Things happened very fast and on June 1st I started working part time at Scandinavian Photo in Stockholm. I became a kid in a candy store! Most of my summer days was spent in the shop, and my evenings and weekends was spent on photography, friends, family and myself. Fall came and so did more photo shoots. And slowly Stuudio Huusmann came back to life.

A year has passed since I decided to change things, and I really like where life is heading now. I look forward to new adventures, many fun photo shoots, and some lazy days in my little summer house in Roslagen just outside Stockholm. It’s gonna be great!

Below are my favourite snapshots from 2017. A big THANK YOU! to all my clients, family and friends for making this turbulent year a really good one!

The engagement session without the engagement

engagement stockholm djurgården

Linda contacted me and said she wanted to surprise her boyfriend Markus with a photo session for their 5th anniversary. An engagement shoot, but without the engagement.

What a great idea!

We headed out to Djurgården, a green oasis in the middle of Stockholm. This was the perfect place to shoot the couple who met through work in the sustainability business. They took a stroll over the fields, had a cozy picnic, and at the end they did some “work” in their favorite habitat. It was a great evening!

Fast forward to 2017 and the couple is now getting married! One month from today I have the honor of capturing their big day. I am really looking forward to it!

Nature and Zombies with @wisslaren

I was casually scrolling through Instagram one day when I came across a post made by nature photographer Christoffer Collin, aka @wisslaren. He invited his followers to a lecture at the Apple Store in Täby. I am a huge fan of his images, so of course I signed up! A few days later I sat down on The Most Uncomfortable Barstool in the Universe. (Hey Apple Täby, if you are reading this, get comfier furniture for future lectures!)

Chris told us about his journey on Instagram. What started as a hobby has now become his job. In conclusion the lecture was very inspirational, and I really admire someone who dare to quit his job and try life as a photographer. Chris was also very humble and claimed “I am no photographer”, but if you take awesome photos and can make a living out of it, then of course you are a true photographer!

Here are some of Chris’ tips on how to become big on Instagram: Take a lot of great images, post them often, use hashtags, be consistent. Do this and and you will be recognized. I have to start working with the “post often”…

Chris also said “If you are going to remember only one thing from this lecture, start playing Plants and Zombies 2! It is THE best game!” I don’t always do as I am told, but this time i did. And yeah, the game is really addictive. Give it a go!
