Max & Sabina

The Cool Couple

This is Max and his girlfriend Sabina. I met them on a day when I was out shooting nothing but portraits. They looked so cool sitting on that bench near the commuter station, so I knew it was a photo opportunity I couldn't miss. Max lives at Södra Station in Stockholm and Sabina comes from Nynäshamn. She works at a retirement home in Sorunda, and Max is a secondary school student. He plays the guitar, and together with a few friends he is hoping to set up a band and he really would like to see a career in music. They both listen to hard rock, and this summer visited both Hultsfred and the Sweden Rock Festival. Hearing about the music festivals I asked if they lived at the camp site and got a funny answer. Max stayed at the camp site while Sabina booked a hotel room!

Nice portrait of an interesting couple.

Can you imagine what would happen if all the people playing in "garage" bands right now were to become famous?

A glut on the market!

What a color coordinated couple. They even match the bench upon which they are sitting. Do you think they planned it? My children are musicians and I wish they too could make some money doing what they love.

Good-looking couple! I like their story about the campsite and the hotel — funny. I think I would have done the same as Sabina :)

I wish Max the best of luck with his music career!

mmm hmm, I'd be in the hotel too! I question why Max would rather be at a camp than with her in that hotel room though...

Each portrait, each person or in this case couple has a unique look and story. What a good looking couple. I wish them well.

Hi Steffe - I haven't been by your blog in a while because I've been away traveling. I really love all your portraits and the background info about the people who graciously posed for you. I love taking portraits, but people here are not very receptive to it. So I end up taking lots of photos of buildings and artwork...
Beautiful blog you have!

Cute couple. I guess Sabina is not a fan of camping!

Another aspiring musician. I agree with Jacob.
