[CARLIN SUNDELL] Cinematic Fashion Story.
Carlin Sundell is the founder and creator of Studio Sundell: a group of creatives that construct exquisite and compelling imagery for fashion, advertising, and editorial clients, with old-school professionalism and high-spirited elegance. A Nike photographer by day with a passion for fashion and portraiture, Sundell’s 6’8″ stature is equally as large as his incredibly kind nature.
With his talent-packed production team organized by Loann Vo and gathered in the heart of Portland’s Chinatown, Carlin proved to us that a story can be told both cinematically as well as photographically. Carlin tells a story with every click, and the videographers filmed simultaneously to bring us a dramatic plot. With every one of his projects, he manifests the need to always shoot with a challenge and more importantly, he feels that he is absolutely nothing without his team.
