Mixing a blog, a daytime job, photo projects and becoming a father....




I actually filmed and cut together this music video last november. As a matter of fact I did do a bunch of cool projects in 2013. But I don't think I blogged about a single one of them, even though I'm 100 confident that it drives traffic to my site and that it feels good (to at least imagine) that someone might be inspired or helped by what I publish.

My only explanation is that I'm very much in a phase where every hour counts, and if I have some free time I usually pass out on the sofa, so I have mentally pretty much put the blog in hibernation mode.

But I'm not complaining!

I have for a number of years now mixed my photography business with a normal daytime job, and I've always felt that I could handle that level of pressure rather well. But in 2013 I added to the mix my biggest "project" in my life thus far by becoming a father to a beautiful baby girl. Now, perhaps it's kind of boring but, I have as a policy to not write about personal stuff or publish personal pictures but I thought I could share this much without exposing myself or my loved ones to much.

The blog is not dead, but I will not publish updates so frequently.

I am still alive


I am still alive and Iam taking pictures. My general situation have changed however so I have not kept the same pace, and actually the last assignments I did were of a commercial nature that does not suit this blog.

I have bought a new place and renovated the soon to be new studio area. Once that is done I will revive this blog with fresh content. It's a promise!

Updated website design #webdesign


Fashion and conceptual editorial artist portrait photographer Marten Keijser Solna Stockholm Sweden Internationall, mode och konceptuella porträtt musik band artistporträtt, film video DOP director of photography
I've been working on this for a long while but today I finally went live with an updated design for my website, at the same time I updated some of my portfolios (at long last!!).
I was happy with the old version but hopefully this new version will be easier to navigate using a smartphone. I've tried it on my android (Galaxy Note) and it seemed to work ok, if you are on an Iphone, an other android, windows, symbian or other machine, please give the site a try martenkeijser.se . If something is a mess let me know in the comments, through a social media channel of your preference, or email (is life really easier with all these different technologies for communication?).
I have a bunch of images in the pipeline as well, stay tuned Read the full post

These behind the scenes pictures are a couple weeks old, but I thought I'd publish them before I publish the finished result.

It was a very spontaneous shoot for me, had to jump in when another photographer backed out. And before I could do anything about retouch I had a planned visit to Denmark for the Roskilde festival!!! (it was awesome) and I also got sick for a week (connection??), but now they are pretty much done.

Stay tuned for the finished pictures, there are a bunch of rabbits in one of the sets.
