One week in Nerja Spain with www.teamblizmerida.se .
I had a blast hanging with the cyclists and Jesper from Bliz. My job was to take photos both for Merida and Bliz, and also Cyclesport.se. They mainly wanted all kind of action shots but also portraits. Here are just a few photos from my week with the team.

Photoshoot for X-kross glasses

Yesterday I was photographing for X-Kross glasses. I finally had some use of my portable studioflashes. I rarely use them, but when trying to overpower the sun and at the same time keeping a high shutter speed, these things do help. Especially with hypersync via Pocket Wizards..

Here are two shots from our session, the rest will X-kross publish and use.. For those that are interested in in my equipment and camera settings etc, feel free to comment below and I will get back to you!
