I've been trying to find one skate photo of Nikke for his interview in Hangup Magazine from my hard drive for pretty much the whole day, but instead I keep finding other cool photos from previous years. I think I need to archive my stuff better...
Anyways, this is Krisse from summer 2010, somewhere in Finland...


This Saturday. More info on Sideburn magazine blog.


Finally got my new website online today. Go check it out at www.toiviainen.org

since I got my Graflex Crown Graphic 4x5 camera about a year ago I've wanted to use it for portraits mostly. And now that I finally got a good lighting kit as well I thought that I'd do a test at home to see how they work.

I used a really simple lighting setup for this portrait of Liam (check out his work!) and I think the polaroid came out okay. Actually it came out pretty much what I had imagined it in my head.
I think I need to play around with the lights and stuff, but I'm definitely going to do a portrait project soonish...

Haven't been shooting lots of b&w skate photos in a while. It's so much easier to shoot digital now I guess. I do miss it though. I Just love the grain and the whole process of photographing on film...
