I am no longer active on the forums. The forums have degenerated to such an extent it is barely more than MySpace. It is not possible to hold meaningful discussions about basically anything that has to do with the actual business without rude and offensive interruptions by individuals who seldom know anything whatsoever about photography, the business of photography or modeling..
However, if you have anything you like to discuss with me, trade or think I can help with pro information you can still get in touch with me thru messages. I am more than willing to help if I can...*^)
***** I teach MASTER CLASSES *****
Group (max number of participants - 3) or one on one. These are not the group workshops where you get 30 min with a model. What you get depends on what you *need* and *want" to learn.
Write me for details or references..=*^)
YOU ARE DIFFERENT - this is one of the most common comments about me and my work - and yes, I am...
I am not interested in wasting your and my time by making what you see on 99.9% of all portfolios on sites like this one. If that's what you want, then I am not the one to contact. If you want to create *meaningful* art, something that you wish to keep, hang on a wall, see in a gallery or a book and look at and be happy with forever, then we maybe should talk..=*^)
I am an Internationally known, book, magazine and newspaper published Swedish/American photographer.
What you see here image wise is but a fraction of my work since I started doing photography about 13 years ago - during that time I've taken 7 years off so I have actually worked about 5..=*)
On my main site, ChristerArt.com, you'll find about 4,000 images - (if you ask for a link)...=*^)
I am now in Europe, making England my base. If you wish to work with me, drop me a line and we'll see if we can make it happen. If you're contacting me wanting to work and get paid for your time - no problem - I'll be happy to pay your rate if you pay me mine..=*^)
About me (no, I did not write the Wiki piece)..=*^):
(As you may know, Wikipedia can be edited by anyone. Someone, for reasons unknown, amused him/herself by deleting the Wiki page about me. After about ten deletions and re-uploads, the author of the page, Caroline Godschall, email@example.com, after conferring with me, decided to abandon the page.).
If you think you have that "Special Something" a "Different Look", and have not had breast enhancement done, contact me. I do a limited number of *collaborative* sessions. It doesn't matter if you have no or little experience being in front of the camera, what I look for is integrity, intelligence, a different look, a strong desire to be part of a creative process that will hopefully end up with images that "sing", that stops you dead in your tracks, an image you'll be proud to be part of.
I am very easy to work with but expect you to be dedicated to our work, ie, return emails, calls, be on time - you know - all that stuff that makes it a pleasure to work together and get the images done..=*^)
I create intimate and personal images but I am not interested in anything except work. I am married to a lovely and amazing woman..=*^)
My lovely wife Jess (ex model):
