Film Travels II

September 16, 2011

I travel a lot. This year I’ve had my family with me on some of my trips, which has been a welcome break to my normal routine. “A table for one” gets very boring in the long run, no matter where you are in the world. In June we left Australia together and we didn’t come back for two months. Here are a few shots from that wonderful journey to Italy, Austria, Sweden, the US and Bali. Most of them are my tourist snaps. All of them are shot with a Contax 645 on Portra 800 film. Scanned by RPL.

Hello, you used too write great, but the last several posts have
been kinda boring… I miss your tremendous
writings. Past several posts are just a bit out off
track! cone on!

Although being aware of keyword percentages is a good idea, it is more important
that content be relevant and useful to the visitor.

So what are you going to put in their search box is “website optimization tips”.
But it is extremely important that anyone looking to hire an SEO professional be aware of
the differences. This mode of advertisement was faster than the
earlier ones and reached more people but it
had its own limitations.

Awestruck. Amazing Jonas !

Lve the pictures, just getting into film, how do you get peoples skin to look so nice….

Film certainly is not dead! You’ve just inspired me to go out and buy a couple of rolls.

Hi Jonas

nice family,nice place,greats shoot i love u work

very cool my man, thanks for sharing )love the mini / big motorbike sequence

The 52nd picture makes me want to listen to “woods” by Bon Iver. Great personal work Jonas, these are beautiful.

I am Nirav Mom. I love your photos. Your boys are cute. Nice to see your family. Also I love your Venice photos. I been there. I love to print venice photo and make frame. I like to see your Bisbane photos. I been also Australia.

“Just some touristy photos?!” These are gorgeous. I’m inspired.

Hej Jonas!
My name is Martina, and I am from Brazil. I’ve lived in Brisbane for 4 year and hanged with swedes all the time. By coincidence i’ve found your worl.
I come here every now and then to feast myself with your amazing photos. Not kidding… you might be the best photographer I’ve ever seen.
So I’ve decided to say hello.

Thanks for filling the world with beauty.
Kram, Martina

I love this whole set. I look forward to your personal posts :)

The colors in the Venice images are like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Painterly and dreamy and absolutely wonderfully perfect.

Your boys are so blessed. Seeing so much of the world. I wonder what they’re going to be when they grow up. :) My world is so small compared to them.

Grymt härligt, igen, Jonas. Man sugs in i varenda bild!!

I have heard that music inspires your photography. Well I wouldn’t even know how to photograph a duck, but your PHOTOGRAPHY inspires my MUSIC. Thank you Jonas and God bless you and your family.

Oh my goodness, are your kids cute! I love both of the boats on the water, the beach with your wife & son and that little chic in the sunshine. You must’ve crept & held your breath to not have scared it away. That’s magic.

The boys are very cute! Must be Mums looks ha ha. Great shots man.

the range of brilliance is…well…brilliant…

Skitnsygga bilder igen! Väldigt inspirerande! //Anders

Film is DELICIOUS. But it still requires you to be behind the lens. (meaning YOU, not anyone else). I’m rambling.

I want to eat these colors! Wow!!!!

Nirav, I don’t know why you were surprised to see that myself and my lobster made the cut … clearly it is because Jonas loves me as much as he loves his children. Seriously, I can’t explain how much I miss you guys. Jonas, these are spectacular.

Man, you’ve given me itchy feet with those pics.

So freaking gorgeous Jonas. Love the intimacy in these!

lovely travels, your kids are going to treasure these someday.

Viewing your photos of Bali makes my heart hurt for a time, years ago, when I lived in cities just like that around the world. Love their way of life.

Stunning film work. Perfect music selection as well! Always love your music!

What a trip! And your sweet boys! Looks like a great summer for you and the family, must be fantastic to bring them on the road.

Beautiful pics! Nice places you have visited, the colors and everything look perfect!

breathtaking…and thank you for always sharing your tasteful music. you know the transporting power of engaging all our senses simultaneously!

Great job…s So jealous of all your travel!

Your work always inspires! + Your kid is adorable!!

Gorgeous! Thank you for sharing! Loved the Bali shots.

What a feast. Love to see your personal work (especially as I’m a fan of your work as opposed to someone looking to hire a wedding photographer). As someone who’s just starting to get into photography and trying his best not to suck, it’s interesting and inspirational to see what you decide to shoot, and then how you actually take the shot.

Everything is so beautiful & inspiring. Great job as usual!! :)

Stellar set of images. I’m blown away.

Du är makalöst bra! Varje bild, vilket motiv det än må vara, är fantastiskt. Du inspirerar mig hela tiden. Sluta aldrig att fotografera.

Underbara foton!

Jag blir så sugen på att åka till Venedig. Helst NU på en gång.

Båtbilderna – rättvänd och felvänd – vilket mästerverk! Satt länge och tittade på dom och faschinerades.. Sjukt snyggt!

Vackra bilder & jag kan känna din kärlek för dina barn i bilderna!

As a pair of photographers with a pair of babies, your life is so inspiring to me. Also, how adorable are you little ginger kiddoes?

Sometimes I think “Jonas is not that great…..just a rockstar photographer”. Then I realise that you are a pretty special photographer. I shoot most of my family stuff on film too and wish they turned this awesome. Thanks for the inspiration.

just love them. your work always makes me smile. :)

Beautiful. Makes me wanna go on holidays now!

I’m drooling! Amazing, wonderful, incredible, beautiful photos!

Fantastiska bilder. Mycket inspirerande!

Damn, that’s one sad lookin’ monkey!

A couple of these look like paintings by Peter Doig, the swamp ones with the speed boat…beautiful

Din familj är verkligen fantastiskt fin. Och dina bilder.

Fantastiska bilder Jonas! Tack för all inspiration! :-)

Really beautiful. Makes me want to shoot film even more.

Amazing! I want to be that good when I grow up.

Been waiting for this man. Beautifully captured. The lobster made the cut to :).

Pretty damn amazing work! Googling and checking eBay for Contax 645 as I type.

You should make a book of these.

Okay Jonas, these are just – off the hook – beautifully captured!

Must book a ticket to Italy ASAP.

magical, you are so talented

Some of these shots are ‘jaw-droppingly’ gorgeous. Thanks for sharing!

that was heavy. my vocabulary is failing me but that was completely mental, in the best way.

Amazing adventures you must have had!

Just a delight for the eyes – the whole set. Really loved the shirtless boy in the wheat.

wow. always a joy to see life through your lens.

this is why everyone should shoot their vacations on film.
your work is sublime.

Geez Jonas, I hate you! ( just kidding)

I love your photos of your visit to Indonesia (was it Bali?). The lighting was magnificent. It reminded me of my own hometown and my Grandma’s house. And your son is so cute!!

Beautiful indeed. Every single one.

Also, your kids are going to one day say, “I don’t know what my dad did for a living, but he did love to take pictures.”

You continue to inspire me, Jonas. Thanks for proving that film is not dead. Beautiful family, too. Thanks again :)

When I saw your FB post, I clapped :)

Such a treat, sir. Thanks. And I don’t know what you’re talking about – you shoot film beautifully :)

shot.the.gate! this is just too darn awesome! aaaaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh!!!!

Beautifully captured, as always. Well done.
P.S. Your sons are so cute!

Spectacular stuff. I echo the sentiment on the family portraits. That last frame is just killer.

I’d like to have about half of these blown up on my wall. Gorgeous!

Forget digital Jonas. I’ve admired your work for some time and this latest post has me believe that your photography to post-processing ratio is like 100:1. Just beautiful.

How wonderful that your family gets to experience all of these marvelous places with you. It must make seeing the sites even more beautiful for you :) Your kids are getting the best kind of education there is: discovering the world in person, and not through some textbook. Yay!

let me be the first then. just so happen to have JONSI*ALEX in my hears as I view these and my goodness, so so beautiful! everything i love about images. thank you.

That read little head of yours… makes those pictures even more colorful. Priceless moments, unforgettable trips and just amazing shots! Greeting from Colombia.

Amazing as per usual! Love to see the personal images that give us a glimpse into your family life. Love!

Stunning pictures, Jonas. Thanks for sharing!
