Erik Almås + PDN Pulse + American Airlines

Erik’s images for the American Airline’s print campaigns and corporate image library were recently featured on PDN Pulse. While traveling on assignment, Erik had his camera on all the time, shooting whenever he had a chance. After, he realized there were two bodies of work within all the images.  One that he produced for the airline, which are tightly controlled and reflect Erik’s style, and another, which are “in between moments.” 

Be sure to read more about this story by heading over to PDN Pulse.

Erik Almås + Staged Photography Blog

Erik was recently featured on Staged Photography. The feature, titled “My relative didn’t give me a camera when I was 12,” discusses how Erik started his career in Photography:

“An image is really good when it evokes some kind of emotional response from the viewer. A photograph can be great to me in many ways, without meaning much to other people who look at it. I can love an image for the cool way it was lit or some new technical achievement.”
