Clients and assignments at Photographer Staffan Andersson

Golf Store, Top flite, Ben Hogan, Spalding, Druvan, Finax, Campbell's, Spirit Store, Peak Preformance, Way Finder, Park Lane

Some of my tasks were to set the light for photo shoots in studio and outdoor. Get different props both for model- and still life photos. We made many photo shoots for catalogues abroad and in general a lot of my work was to communicate with the team and make sure everything would run smooth.


Clients and assignments at Digifex

Volvo, Sony, Golf Store, Tetra Pak, Pergo Flooring, Oriflame, Pågen, Cloetta, Photographers, Advertising agencies with their clients

I started at Digifex as a scanner operator and copyist, but after some time, most of the photographers started with digital cameras and my job turned in to more of a Retoucher, Quality Controller, Copyist and Consultant how to best achieve different goals with images. I took care of some bigger companies image banks and made sure their image material was suitable for their graphic profile.
I´ve done many kinds of retouches, from beauty with hair cut-outs to products and cars. My biggest assignment was for Pergo Flooring 2008 (Three world wide catalouges). In that production, I took care of most of the retouches and was responsible for the quallity of the pictures and that the floor swaches would look correct in print.


Clients and assignments at Illuminant Partners

OBE Beef, GBO, Hoegl Shoes, NSW, Rreef, Sino Gold, Diamond Wood
