Bio



Isac Malmgren

 Photographer

Summary

I have over five years of experience as a professional photographer, with a photojournalistic style, and a   simple style that relies   more on capturing a moment and natural beauty than expensive rigs and back end touch ups. I believe truly great photos can evoke emotion and tell a story to those who view them.

 

 

 

 

Philosophy

 My style for wedding photography is unique compared to most photographers. I am interested in  capturing stories with my pictures, and wedding and engagements are love stories. I strongly believe an in depth interview process with the bride and groom about their “love story” is essential to telling the story of their wedding as opposed to the story of “a wedding”.

When working on portraits I believe a calm supportive attitude is the best way to allow a person to open up and feel comfortable being themselves around the camera. My goal is find and capture someone’s personal beauty, which is often overlooked in a culture that puts too much emphasis on “sexy” a cheap substitute for true beauty.

 

Strategy/Equipment

I shoot with an Olympus camera on the 4/3rds system. Apart from personal preferences the most notable reason why I chose Olympus is that it stabilizes the image in the camera as opposed to in the lens, this opens up a world of older lenses that would otherwise be nearly unusable given modern camera’s stabilizing abilities. I also implement lens renting for important events, meaning the lenses I use on your event will be the highest quality on the market, and better than all but a few photographer’s setups.
