The European Edition – Part I

Not sure if Chris Pratt will join us in Stockholm, Sweden this summer for our first ever Stuck In Plastic Photo Walk on the Old Continent, but he will be more than welcome, as are you!

At the end of August, in Vaxholm (which is just outside of Stockholm in the middle of its most wonderful Archipelago), we are planning to make this photo meet up an event you will not forget and actually want to be part of!

We will begin our adventure on Friday evening by welcoming our international visitors that are traveling across Europe and we will settle them into one of the most iconic locations of Vaxholm; it’s historic castle surrounded by water and one of my most favorite non plastic subjects (so yes, you can be sleeping in the castle below).

On Saturday afternoon we will be meeting up with everyone in Vaxholm for a deep dive in the wonderful world of toy photography and not only meet up with some good old friends from Continental Europe but also initiate some new young Swedish Talent into the art of taking plastic places. Just head over to Vaxholm and bring your gear (plastic and camera) along and some good vibes, the rest will just come …

Shelly (Seattle), Vesa (Helsinki) and Boris (Vaxholm) are confirmed hosts and we will show you not only the deeper insights of shooting plastic in natural light, but rumor goes there will even be a class into some strobic effects you can try at home (did anyone say Finnish snow ?)

We will close the evening with a Fantastic Swedish Cray Fish Party and include some classic Swedish Traditional Songs (the dinner is 100% kids safe, so feel free to include your young ones in the whole day) and offer a room with a view for those who are living a few Swedish Miles away from Stockholm and would like to return home on Sunday (exact details to be confirmed).

Did we mention a sunrise photo shoot on Sunday and combine long exposure, HDR, bokeh and plastic all together with some scrambled eggs and bacon ?

When ?
Saturday 29th August 2015
Photo Walk starts at 15:00 CET, but there is a lot before and after to be part of.

Where ?
