5/8 Cimmys Mazda RX-7RX-7 Series-8:

A visit to Superior homegrounds and Micke. Thought I might do a session while I was in town and this tricked out RX-7 was a pleasant surprise.

(You can find the WHOLE GALLERY HERE!)

20/8 Ferrari Racing days, Ring Knutstorp:

The Superior Media Madness Motor Events Weekend (S.M.M.M.E.W, yes I just made it up). Three events in two days in two different parts of sweden. We made it!

We kicked the weekend off with Ferrari/Maserati Racing days at Ring Knutstorp. This 599 XX was probably the most insane engine sound this year, incredible and insanely loud! I think there will be a clip of this sooner on the Superior Blog…

(Read more and find the other galleries from this EVENT HERE!)

21/8 JDM Faceoff Mantorp Park+Sessions:

Second JDM Faceoff this year. The whole team was rather lazy this day after the early morning/long drive. It was a long and warm day but I managed to do 4 minisession apart from coverage from the track while we were there.

(Read full results of the Time Attack battle and a few other SELECTED GALLERIES HERE!)

28/8 Aston Martin DB9 Volante:

Another loaner. This time for driving my newly wed friends in the backseat. Quick snapshot before returning it to the owner. The DBS is a much better drive in my opinion, I don’t like the bodyroll of the cabriolet.

1/9 Ferrari 430 F1

Dejan Sokolovski was in town and we decided to try to do a little shoot. I made a phonecall and picked up this beutiful white 430.

15-17/9 Frankfurt IAA:

If you told me in the beginning of the year that I was going to be on Frankfurt IAA with Superior Media I probably wouldn’t believe it, but that was the case. Its a interesting journey to see where the photography takes me next. To me there was 3 cars that I could take home and put in my garage straight away and it was these three. The Lambo stand was quite memorable to, Viva Italia!

(Find e v e r y t h i n g from FRANKFURT IAA 2011 including videos, galleries and blogging HERE!)

October – Banzai 240Z:

The car I shot during the Stance Nation meet hit the stands as a cover on Banzai magazine. JDM build of the year if you ask me.

(This 240Z owned by Erik Jonasson was our SELECTED JDM-CAR OF THE YEAR, CLICK for the feature article from us!)

1/10 BMW 1M:

My friend got his new car after a long wait, we did a quick shoot of it before Frankfurt, but decided to give it a new go when fall came. I’m really happy with the outcome of this shot, I think its probably whats closest to wait I aim for in my pictures. It was also permiere for my new logo.

2/10 Range Rover Evoque:

My friend Fabian at the local Land Rover/Jaguar dealership gave me a call because he had this car home for the weekend. I was pumped with inspiration after the shoot of the 1M the day before and was really satisfied this time also.

22/10 Nissan Skyline DR30 RS Turbo:

Micke from Superior Imports did his tour in south of Sweden with his newest demo-car a olden goldie Skyline. It was a good day of shooting and a great night out. Unfortunately this is the only picture I can show you, for reasons I can’t tell you. Super secret!

13/11Range Rover Evoque:

An early morning with Fabian again. This time with a Evoque Coupe in my favorite color! We visited Malmö, basically because its a bigger town with nicer urban locations to contrast with the grey Evoque in the forest. After we were done we went by Lexus to check out the LFA passing by on a tour through Sweden.

Early autumn, Lexus LF-A Swedish exclusive:

(Full gallery and a write-up by guest-blogger SIR_PIERRE is RIGHT HERE *CLICK!*)

10/12 XKRS+XFR:

Me and Fabian planned one more session to make this year go out with a boom. I’ve never made a session so late in december before, because we usually have a lot of snow by then. Fabian didn’t think it was enough with a 550 hp blue bomb in december, so he suggested we’d take it on a trip to Copenhagen.

Since I’ve been thinking about this but not doing it the last few years it was another nobrainer.. And as if that wasn’t enough, we threw in a red XFR aswell. The rest of the result, well check it out here:

So that sums up my year of ” Lots of Supercars, Events and some JDM”. I don’t think I left anything out besides a few weekend joyrides (R8, ZR-1, 997TT) that I rather drove then shoot..

Really looking forward to let the camera rest for a couple of months to regain inspiration and then come back with full power during spring. Who knows what next year has to offer?!

SUMMARY 2011: Part II of JalleGraphics best work of the past year!

Its been a different kind of ”busy as hell” ever since we struck 2012, but now its time for some unfinished business where the core of the team get their honorable mention.

The SUMMARY 2011 (CLICK!) shows what each SELECTED PHOTOGRAPHER had as their favorite moments/pics, and a few personal blogging at that.

Today we are closing the year for Hjalmar Van Hoek who himself has a lot of new things to think about in the coming future. Just after the new year he got the great news that he is to become a father; and we congratulate and wish him the best with that. A big part of life indeed!

But for now we’ll show you his of selected work and let you enjoy the pictures as much as you like. Be sure to visit JALLEGRAPHICS FACEBOOK and press ”Like” if you appreciate them!

In June it was time for Gatebil @ Mantorp Park. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to stay the whole weekend but I still had a great time out, photographing and filming a lot. I Can edit that I never have filmed before so if you see some shots passing by in the Gatebil movie that are bouncing, you can blame me and my filming skills.

It was also the first time for me to be out on the track and doing some photographing. Can’t say much about it but nothing beats photographing in the middle of a circuit while you’re being surrounded by flaming and smoking cars. The sound is just mind taking!

Skyline R34 GT-R Photoshoot:

As I wrote earlier a friend of mine visiting the Wanganmeet does own a JDM car. In fact, he owns one off my personal dream cars, a Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R. I got some new gear for 2011 to get better use of my flashes so here are some of the photos taken for him. They helped a lot but there’s still quite some time in Photoshop behind every photo.

Mitsubishi Evolution X Photoshoot:

As time the season progressed I got more jobs, including this Mitsubishi Evolution X. The customer always wanted to have one of his cars shot on this location, and so we did. It might not have been the best location for this particular car, but at the time I thought it would turn out good anyway. Here are the shots.

Subaru Impreza WRX STi Photoshoot:

Toyota Aristo Vertex V300 Photoshoot:

It’s time for an exclusive. Photos which have never been shown before, well you might have seen a few of them. I the autumn we headed out with Mickes Toyota Aristo. We were trying to get the “special” autumn feel to them by placing the car under some green/yellowish trees.

Here are some off the final images of that afternoon on that location.


We finish of with the Superior Meet. Micke and company set up a whole day for all Superior Drivers Club members and anybody who loves cars. I met up with Micke at his place to head of to the headquarters in Katrineholm. I got the honor driving his Aristo.

When I got there I cracked on with a photo session right away. One of the Superior Drivers Club members wanted some photos taken of his Subaru Forester. After passing by some interesting places on the way to the headquarters I found a good location. Just a two minute drive from the garage.

And now some random shots from the event. Starting of with some fine Rx-7’s.

Mr. David Johansson @ SUPERIOR MEDIA in action:

The world does look a bit better with some smoke………… from the tires (Thompa W)!

As Micke has written in a blog earlier a fine young man called Alex wanted to buy his dream car and got in touch with Micke about importing his car. You can read the whole story here.

He picked up his widebody RX-7 at the Superior Meet and I just got blown away. It was such a nice bodykit on the car. We; Rani Gilliani, Christoffer Talvis and myself, decided to take some photos of Alex’s new ride. We all took a bunch of photos and this is the one I’m most pleased with.

In all the excitement I totally forget or didn’t take the time to eat, although it looked so delicious.

Last but not least I shot some photos for Micke himself. As you all know he bought a Nissan Skyline DR30 from the stone age, sorry Micke just had to mention it 😉 But it really has the old school look and can’t say I don’t like it. However I can’t show you too much but this photo has been uploaded a while back. The rest of the set will be up very soon!
To sum up 2011
I always try to keep on improving my skills behind the camera, as well as the post processing. This year has been a good year for me personally and business wise. I got new connections, new friends and most of all more experience. For every photo session I did I got feeling that I was on to the right path. Next year isn’t going to be much different. I’m going to raise the bar a bit higher for myself!
I Wish you all the best for 2012 and let it be a year filled with awesome events!
Best regards,
//Hjalmar van Hoek – JALLEGRAPHICS (FACEBOOK).
