I was invited by a VC company to a zoom meeting earlier this summer, the company management wants to keep the name secret.
There were four lovely representatives from the company who asked me to tell about my background, how I work, I mentioned a little about the years as a forensic photographer, about photography under a microscope and from a helicopter, at crime scenes.
I told him that nowadays I photograph for companies, weddings, exhibits and sells art photography.
I was hired 31 Aug-2 Sept, 40 people from 7 countries were to fly into Stockholm to finally meet at Högberga Gård, High Mountain Farm the working name these days), and it was over 2 years since they all met.
We all had to do a quick Antigen test before we gathered as a group. Dress code: Orange.
Hugs and laughter, they toasted with orange drinks, DJ was dressed in orange and played lounge music, I was also white & orange, so fun.
I got an email “Please could you take a photo of us all together on the first night (31 Aug) at the pre drinks.
We think this will be a photo to remember and treasure for years to come”. I climbed high up to get the sea as a backdrop.
Day 2 I photographed Team working session, after lunch (we got Wallenbergers ..) we were picked up with Ribboats for a trip in the Stockholm archipelago. I had to hold on tight to the camera, the boats made strong turns and jumps, all in 60 knots, I was grateful for my strong “running legs”..Lidingö – Grinda took just over 30 min, impressive. Once at the little island called Lökhomen, Prosecco and snacks were served.
Day 3 I came back for Gala dinner, wonderful party with beautiful table setting in the Gallery (2014 I had my first exhibition there) a saxophonist played, nice atmosphere and later in the evening was treated to a nice performance by a singer and her brother.
