I received an email inviting me to a zoom meeting coming from an international Venture Capital company. The management wants to keep its name secret. There were four representatives from the company who asked me to tell them about my background, how I work. I mentioned the years as a forensic photographer, about photography under a microscope and from a helicopter, in crime scenes. I also told him that nowadays I photograph for companies, weddings, exhibit my art photographs in Sweden and New York. I was hired 31 Aug-2 Sept, 40 people from 7 countries flew into Stockholm to meet at Högberga farm Lidingö, it was just over 2 years since they met. We had to do a quick Antigen test before we gathered as a group. Dress code: Orange, hugs and laughter, toasting with orange drinks, DJ dressed in orange.
The day before the assignment came 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 and got the beautiful view as a background.
Day 2 I photographed Team working session, after lunch (we got Wallenbergers;) we were picked up with Ribboats for a trip in the archipelago. I had to hold on tight to the camera, sharp turns, all at 60 knots. Lidingö – Grinda in about 30 min. Once at little Lökhomen, slices and Prosecco were served.
Day 3 I came back for a Gala dinner, wonderful party with beautiful table settings in the Gallery, a saxophonist made sure the atmosphere was soft, and later in the evening, there was a performance by a singer and her brother.
‘Our team had a Team-building offsite in Stockholm beginning of September 2021 and we have used the great help of Kristin Anderssson to capture this emotional moment for us as we haven’t been together face to face for over 18 months. With her amazing skill as a photographer, Kicki managed to add extra value to our get-together. We have thoroughly enjoyed Kicki as a photographer but also as an amazing person to have around. We will remain friends and for sure use her services again. Thank you Kicki for everything! We have decided to only enjoy the photos internally for now. No plans to publish them at this point.
