The Landscape Architect

The Landscape Architect

This is Daniel Larsson. He is a landscape architect and works for WSP. I noticed him as he was taking some photos with his Canon EOS 50D at the commuter station in Tungelsta yesterday and walked over for a chat. I have a few photos from the recent work at the station and a few WSP photos as well. WSP is constructing a new bridge over the railway here and Daniel was shooting photos to use as he will make a 3D version of the future bridge. He works in Photoshop for the panoramic photos, shoots in RAW and will make a HDR panorama that he will then import to SketchUp for the 3D rendering. He figured this project would take around three days. To make room for the new bridge a couple of buildings, including Stenliden, has been teared down. Daniel is from Linköping, but lives in Stockholm. Before that he worked in London for a year and a half. One project he was involved with was the Brighton International Arena.

Looks like a fine gentleman and being a photographer, he is not doubt intelligent and kind and very brave.

I'm not sure about the Canon camera, though, being a Nikon man. But I've heard they're pretty good cameras...

;-)

I covet his camara! I like how you told how he works (RAW, Photoshop, etc.).
I can't wait for my Moo cards, I think they will give me more bravado to approach people!

This made me curious so I clicked the links. Amaizing work and a charming post about a photographer :)

Ps Since I don't often have people in my photos ,,,, Do you ask all the people if you may publish photos on them? This is a bit of a dilemma for me :)

Here is a man who enjoy his job - in danish "arbejdsglæde". I like your portraits very much.

Sounds more like a chemist than a landscape architect.

Halcyon said...

Looks like a nice chap. Is is spring yet over there? He certainly isn't dressed for it! :)

Steffe said...

To the point Jabob!

You will probably be a bit nervous T, but that's part of the progress.

I sure do Birgitta. That's the hole point. I tell everyone I meet about the Daily City Photo project, and of my flickr stream from where I blog my photos. And if they are up for a portrait I then start by asking a few questions so that I can tell a story about them and how we met. Give it a go Birgitta. Try printing some business card and be sure to always have them with you. I never go anywhere without, camera, notebook and MOO cards these days.
