  1. I would if I could, but a tad far from where I live, Sweden 🙂

    Good luck capturing some great photos and show them for us too.

  2. That would be nice, please tell if you do so I can brag of being with a Pulitzer Prize-winner 😀

    Joke aside, any idas where in Sweden and shooting what?

  3. That would be great. Have you asked them?
    I have bought some stuff from them, mostly cheaper portable lights as don’t have a studio and can’t afford one with my Senior contributions 🙂

      1. Ah, haha, ok got your point.

        Might be an idea, I could do that, butI I don’t know if any of my friends use Profoto but I will ask.

  4. Hi again,

    asked my photo friends at FB, but no answer yet, probably because i’t a “weekend-day” today.

    I wrote to Profoto and strangely enough I got an answer just now.
    Well, the girl Rebecca at Marketing Manager Profoto Nordic said she rather preferred a request from you, so I sent here the link for your “SONY ARTISANS OF IMAGERY PROGRAM CELEBRATES 10 YEARS!” article 🙂
    I guess it’s up to you now to ask 🙂
