About Me - August Linnman

Welcome to my online portfolio!


About Me

I am a photographer based in Stockholm, Sweden. I do this as a part-time enthusiast project. It was rather recently (in 2013) I decided to restart my big interest from childhood and youth. My roots are from the "analog era", i.e. the 70's and 80's. And I still honor the old way of creating pictures by using film quite a lot. I also develop the film myself whenever I have the time. From time to time I also visit a darkroom to create prints the old way. 

Analog photography is one of my big interests, but I work with modern (digital) techniques too. 

My hometown Stockholm gets explored by my camera almost every day. I try to find beautiful, awful and most of all interesting spots. Sometimes but far from always with people in front of the lens. 

Famous photographer Robert Frank said : "Black and white are the colors of photography. To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.". Well put. The majority of my pictures are sans color. And I like it. 

The Pictures

This site contains various pictures: Eye-catching wall photos as well as more specialized images. 

Ordering Prints

Picture prints from the wall photos gallery can be ordered through the online store (look for the little "Buy" or "Buy this picture" icon). 

Special Work

Pictures from all galleries (except the "People" gallery) can be ordered in tailor-made high-quality digital prints. The black-and-white pictures (digital and analog) can even be made in silver-gelatin prints from the darkroom. If you are interested please drop me a message!

Ordering Books

You can find a collection of my pictures in a set of books available at Blurb. Each book contains around 50 of the best pictures I selected from a year of shooting. 

Assignments

I am available for requests for assignments. Portraits, Stage Shoots, Studio Shoots etc. Please feel free to contact me (click "Contact Me" at the left bar). I am also connected with a number of skilled and recommendable colleagues which I may refer you to if I don't have the time or resources.
