CEO Perry Oosting & Product Manager Ove Bengtson
Welcome speech by Perry Oosting, who will also give you a glimpse of the future.
The Hasselblad story by Ove Bengtson, Product Manager with 30 years’ experience within Hasselblad.
For 75 years, we have created some of the world’s best cameras that have captured iconic moments throughout history. Hasselblad’s tradition of designing cameras with the photographer in mind – providing superior image quality, reliability and iconic design – has been our leading value since the very start. The story behind our cameras is as fascinating as the cameras themselves.

These demos will allow you to have a first-hand experience with the latest camera drone technology. DJI’s experts will give you the basics of flight technique and showcase the possibilities of aerial photography.
13:15 – 13:45 – Elia Locardi – World Travel Photography

Location independent since March 2012, he and his wife live a 100% mobile lifestyle travelling from country to country, covering the globe.
During this presentation, Elia will give some insights on how he first began to incorporate DJI products into his workflow and how he uses the technology to create unique and beautiful imagery from an aerial perspective. Elia will also discuss how to get the most out of aerial photography using a combination of targeted times of day and post-processing methods. Attendees will also experience how DJI UAVs fly and learn the fundamental techniques of aerial photography.
14.30 – 15:00 – Thomas Adriaan Morel – Specialized in Capturing High-speed Motion
Thomas Adriaan Morel (born 1988) is a self-taught professional photographer based in Norway. He is specialised in capturing high-speed motion that moves too rapidly for the human eye to register. He does this in a dramatic and eye-catching way, and the fact that he does not use any manipulation to create his images makes his work even more mesmerising.
“To create my work, I would much rather manipulate the truth then doing any manipulation in post-production. I want my work to be true photography, straight out of the camera. And to do so, I often work several days to get the shot that I had in mind.”
Meet Thomas during shootGOT to get insight into how he works, and the vision behind his imagery. He will explain his technique and what led him to where he is today.
15:00 – Flight demos with DJI Inspire 1 Pro (Outdoors)
These demos will allow you to have first-hand experience with the latest camera drone technologies. They will cover the basics of flight and showcase the possibilities of aerial photography.
15.30 – 15:50 – Get inspired by Hasselblad photographers Aorta
AORTA is a photographic duo consisting of Marco Grizelj and Kristian Krän. They have worked together since 1996 when they first met during photography studies at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. AORTA creates staged photographs to which they apply subtle narratives. Their editorial fashion photography frequently explores introspective mindstates of solitary female characters. These mindstates are reflected in elaborate surreal settings which they construct as miniature sets. Their aesthetics are defined by hard lights and limited colour palettes that sculptures and creates depth in their imagery. Apart from numerous editorials for magazines such as WIRED, Schön, 125 and Elle they have had solo exhibitions in Gothenburg (Röda Sten) and in Stockholm (Fotomässan). They have participated in group exhibitions in Seoul (KAPA), Cannes (Festival International de la photographie de mode), London (125Live). AORTA is represented in the collection of the “National Museum of Photography” in Horten, Norway. AORTA has also created advertising for a wide range of companies such as Ikea, Volvo, Panasonic, Tele2, Monki, History Channel, AMC, Canal+, C-more, Harvey Nichols, Finnair, Tuborg and many more.

17:00 – 17:30 – Meet one of the Master 2016 Winners – Roy Rossovich
Growing up in Southern California Roy spent a fair amount of time on movie sets with his father, actor Rick Rossovich (Top Gun, Terminator, Roxanne) which inspired him at an early age to want to work with production. In the early 2000’s he moved to Sweden to study graphic design and fine art. He worked several years with fashion, editorials and printed beauty commercials before submerging himself fully into the world of moving images. Working now as both a still photographer and cinematographer he has shot three indie features as well as a fair share of short films, music videos and commercials while keeping his fashion work alive with Magazines and commercial work. Having had a foot in both the American and Swedish cultures while growing up and traveling with work constantly Roy loves life on the road and the adventure of production. The Scandinavian aesthetic mixed with his American drive has benefited his career greatly thus far and is something he is proud of being able to connect with both cultures. When it comes to working creatively with the tools he knows and loves he says he couldn’t imagine doing anything else for a living and feels blessed to have that privilege.
