Time to get excited again!
Wont won’t get much better material then this, and we encourage you to click your way around the supplied links to see the entire shoots etc.
Martin has a habit of making plenty of magical pics worth exploring a little extra. At the same time we feel its worth to check out these two categories in the Superior-Blog:
1. The SUPERIOR SELECTED part of the homepage, where you kind find all galleries from the season from all guys in the team!
2. SUMMARY 2011 PAGE (CLICK!) Another reminder great talents like David Johansson, Christoffer Talvis, Rani Giliana, Ronny Thomasson and Hjalmar Van Hoek have already gotten their summaries posted. Check it out!

5/8 Cimmys Mazda RX-7RX-7 Series-8:
A visit to Superior homegrounds and Micke. Thought I might do a session while I was in town and this tricked out RX-7 was a pleasant surprise.
(You can find the WHOLE GALLERY HERE!)
20/8 Ferrari Racing days, Ring Knutstorp:
The Superior Media Madness Motor Events Weekend (S.M.M.M.E.W, yes I just made it up). Three events in two days in two different parts of sweden. We made it!
We kicked the weekend off with Ferrari/Maserati Racing days at Ring Knutstorp. This 599 XX was probably the most insane engine sound this year, incredible and insanely loud! I think there will be a clip of this sooner on the Superior Blog…
(Read more and find the other galleries from this EVENT HERE!)
21/8 JDM Faceoff Mantorp Park+Sessions:
Second JDM Faceoff this year. The whole team was rather lazy this day after the early morning/long drive. It was a long and warm day but I managed to do 4 minisession apart from coverage from the track while we were there.
(Read full results of the Time Attack battle and a few other SELECTED GALLERIES HERE!)
28/8 Aston Martin DB9 Volante:
Another loaner. This time for driving my newly wed friends in the backseat. Quick snapshot before returning it to the owner. The DBS is a much better drive in my opinion, I don’t like the bodyroll of the cabriolet.
1/9 Ferrari 430 F1
Dejan Sokolovski was in town and we decided to try to do a little shoot. I made a phonecall and picked up this beutiful white 430.
15-17/9 Frankfurt IAA:
If you told me in the beginning of the year that I was going to be on Frankfurt IAA with Superior Media I probably wouldn’t believe it, but that was the case. Its a interesting journey to see where the photography takes me next. To me there was 3 cars that I could take home and put in my garage straight away and it was these three. The Lambo stand was quite memorable to, Viva Italia!
October – Banzai 240Z:
The car I shot during the Stance Nation meet hit the stands as a cover on Banzai magazine. JDM build of the year if you ask me.
(This 240Z owned by Erik Jonasson was our SELECTED JDM-CAR OF THE YEAR, CLICK for the feature article from us!)
1/10 BMW 1M:
My friend got his new car after a long wait, we did a quick shoot of it before Frankfurt, but decided to give it a new go when fall came. I’m really happy with the outcome of this shot, I think its probably whats closest to wait I aim for in my pictures. It was also permiere for my new logo.
2/10 Range Rover Evoque:
My friend Fabian at the local Land Rover/Jaguar dealership gave me a call because he had this car home for the weekend. I was pumped with inspiration after the shoot of the 1M the day before and was really satisfied this time also.
22/10 Nissan Skyline DR30 RS Turbo:
Micke from Superior Imports did his tour in south of Sweden with his newest demo-car a olden goldie Skyline. It was a good day of shooting and a great night out. Unfortunately this is the only picture I can show you, for reasons I can’t tell you. Super secret!
13/11Range Rover Evoque:
An early morning with Fabian again. This time with a Evoque Coupe in my favorite color! We visited Malmö, basically because its a bigger town with nicer urban locations to contrast with the grey Evoque in the forest. After we were done we went by Lexus to check out the LFA passing by on a tour through Sweden.
Early autumn, Lexus LF-A Swedish exclusive:
Me and Fabian planned one more session to make this year go out with a boom. I’ve never made a session so late in december before, because we usually have a lot of snow by then. Fabian didn’t think it was enough with a 550 hp blue bomb in december, so he suggested we’d take it on a trip to Copenhagen.
Since I’ve been thinking about this but not doing it the last few years it was another nobrainer.. And as if that wasn’t enough, we threw in a red XFR aswell. The rest of the result, well check it out here:

So that sums up my year of ” Lots of Supercars, Events and some JDM”. I don’t think I left anything out besides a few weekend joyrides (R8, ZR-1, 997TT) that I rather drove then shoot..
Really looking forward to let the camera rest for a couple of months to regain inspiration and then come back with full power during spring. Who knows what next year has to offer?!
