I have worked with swedish model David Axell for a long time, we met almost 10 ys ago. He has always been an inspiration and great friend. We just met for a coffee few days ago to talk about new ideas and I shot these images. He inspired me to do some of my very early fashion films "eclipse" and "sunset" below.
Here is a video collage of moving images I shot with model Adam Huber.
I always like to experiment with my personal work,
Instead of doing the typical sexy guy in underwear - which we have seen plenty everywhere- , I clashed elements of Surrealism , George Platt Lynes- whom I adore! -, and Sistine Chapel ceiling for the finale.
For music i used a sweet minuet from a Mozart sonata
Here is a story i shot for the "REVERSE" issue of Caleo magazine with amazing model Adam Gumula @ Soul Artist Management.
I wanted to do a story that reflects the concept and also a fashion film. It is more challenging because everything has to be planned when shooting double exposures. The film was shoot in one take per character. I am going to start working on more conceptual projects.
The clothes include designers like Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren, Paul Smith, Calvin Klein.

Here is a story i photographed and short film for the 3rd issue of Hello Mr. magazine.
I was inspired by an amazing image series of Duane Michals, so it is a little bit of an homage to his work.
