Tell us about your work?
- I really enjoy it. It involves a lot of travelling, but also a lot of planning and scouting of locations. I work together with many different photographers, and coordinating with them is a large part of the job. The calendar is a big responsibility of mine, but I’m also involved in other shoots for brochures, magazines, the Scania Image Bank and so on. Overall image communication is also an important part of my job.
Can you tell us about your trip to Argentina?
- One of my photographer colleagues and I shot two pictures for the upcoming calendar, a bus and an engine application. Check the blog for some behind-the-scenes pictures soon.
How will the 2013 calendar look?
- The theme will be “Getting into details,” so we’ll show details of our products together with the vehicle itself in an exciting way. We will publish some teaser pictures at the “Behind the scenes” blog in the coming weeks.
What is the “Behind the scenes” blog?
- At the blog you can find all of Scania’s calendar photos, from 1961 to today. You can also check back continuously for updates of new behind-the-scenes pictures from Scania photographers in their journeys across the globe.
