Nostalgia - view our moust magnificent memories in pictures

© Теxt & Photos by Amazing Magazines

We, ChrizPhotography, over the years have photographed diverse materials both for the purpose of our published magazine as well as for the needs of companies and private individuals. We have worked both at home, in Sweden, and abroad. We have also created a rather large picture material for our personal projects as "photo" has always been our passion and thrill. Therefore, we have selected pictures that are precious memories. Motives are temporarily suspended with both digital cameras and traditional roll film camera. Nostalgia makes our hearts beat faster.


The Petronas Towers are one of the sights that should be seen when visiting Kuala Lampur. In the evening hours these ever popular twin towers look incredibly beautiful. Malaysia is a miraculous travel destination with so much to see and so many opportunities to create some wonderful images.


Ferrari Challenge "portrait". Location - Stockholm, Nacka. Time - early morning, when the sun has just appeared on the horizon, casting a special light.


Another unique powerboat, made by Nor-Tech, is the 50-foot long Super Vee "Team Predators' powerboat, which surpassed the Guinness Record. The boat travels the distance from Key West to Cancun, approximately 400 miles, in 8 hours and 23 minutes.



Over the years we've tried many extreme car machines, but when the time came to actually sit behind the wheel of the new Mercedes-Benz S65, it really was a surprise. I recommend trying it! The performance of this comfortable luxury car of such dimensions was truly amazing.


Swedish climate and weather are variables that must be taken into account so that each photo session can be handled appropriately. In this case, when the land is covered with white snow, we photographed the new Saab 9-3 Aero, which was calm like the snow, in cool tones and without strong contrasts forming a successful combination for the picture.


Living in America, especially in Florida, it is absolutely necessary to have a sports boat. Those who meet at the Poker Run event, are united by a special spirit. Until now these big annual events, such as the Poker Run in Miami and Key West Poker Run, have connected the participants from all over the country, and many come from Canada and Europe. We were entrusted to take photos of the Super Vee 50-foot long model of "Eileen's Fifty" with three 1,000-horsepower engines specially ordered by Nor-Tech. We went along on this trip from Miami to Key West.


Hotel Continental, located in Oslo, stands out with a very nice interior and a fantastic cafe "Theatercafeen". Here is where one of the largest private art collections of the artist Edvard Munch is kept. The most remarkable memory was of a pleasant atmosphere and hospitable hotel staff.


When we had to present the two GT-class car Porsche GT3 RS and GT3 Club Sport, we went to the motorway Gelleråsen. Here, without any disturbance, we were able to experiment in order to achieve the desired result.


Fans of the legendary rock band Kiss are all over the world. Before their concert in Stockholm, the famous group held "Pre-Show Party” on the Opera House premises, at the Cafe Opera. A loud party continued until dawn.


To capture an image of the Mitsubishi EVO model topical at that time, we booked a time at Jonkoping (Enköping) Rallycross track.


Sometimes there is a wish to create something unique. Here we tested the photo camera and tried to understand how far to stretch the boundaries. Slightly grainy, but, in our opinion,  there is a full picture of moods.


Nothing can beat the feeling of magic when taking photos of extreme speedboats from the sky. Flying by helicopter and being only partially in it to capture the best moments always creates unforgettable sensations. Picture from the photo session with the company Nor-Tech Boats and produced by it powerboat V4300 Super Vee.


When taking pictures of the new Audi A6 in the Gothenburg archipelago, the sky and waters create an excellent combination, giving the picture depth. This, together with a small dose of daylight facing the camera, gives lively and interesting picture material.


Stockholm has a lot of great places for taking pictures of unique cars. One just has to choose the correct time. Here we chose Katarinavägen street as a location for an ideal shot, a warm summer evening, and the new Corvette C5.


Gold Rush is one of the company’s grandiose Nor-Tech projects. The Powerboat Super Cat 5000 Roadster is equipped with four powerful engines, allowing the boat to reach speeds up to 160 miles per hour. The turquoise blue water lapping the Florida shores highlights the strength and miraculous water spectacle.


In order to complete a successful photo session and be able to communicate a message through the pictures, surroundings and background are very important. When we received the task from a significant motorcycle manufacturing company to put the motocross motorcycles in line and take pictures, it was clear that we had to find a special place to highlight the different "models". The Swedish parliament building created a strong contrast to the motorbikes and resulted in quite interesting pictures.


A small cabriolet Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG had to show all of what it actually is capable of, when we photographed the car for a regular report.


Photographing a charming super yacht is one of the most striking memories, as this type of task does not happen every day. These yachts are unparalleled and it appears that the creation of the interior and the choices of materials were unlimited. On board everything is hand-made according to the customer's wishes and requirements. Here every detail has been paid much attention to. As each yacht delivery is unique, we can not disclose the name of the yacht.


When the new Audi W12 appeared like smoke without fire, we decided to present the vehicle using the smoke. With a help of fire station staff, we have created an exciting photos.



There are actually many good memories in our work, but they are not always associated with the photographing process itself, that is to say, food at the Hotel Kempinski Gravenbruch was simply divine and I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Frankfurt.


When taking photos of the new Volkswagen Touareg, our keyword was comfort. We wanted to appeal to the younger audiences, so this photo session took place while driving, seeing the driver of the car and part of the car interior.


It is not easy to take pictures of a boat during the winter season, especially if the photo session is taken from a helicopter. However, the cold air has its advantages. Winter creates a uniquely clear light, which in combination with the low position of the sun creates shadows and gives the images a pleasant mood. The photo task, entrusted by the Swedish agency, presented the Norwegian boat manufacturer Skorgenes boats.


A small insight into the pictures gallery. Taking photos of the Mercedes-Benz GLK, we used a number of locations, and wanted to create a diverse picture material.


When Maybach appeared on the Swedish market, we had been entrusted with the task of creating interesting, customer appealing picture material. Our photo session was held in Stockholm's southern district (Söder) and it really attracted many who passed by and wanted to watch the fascinating process.


Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG model and the desire to once again create something unprecedented. After negotiating with the responsible persons of the Arlanda Airport, we got permission to use some of the aircraft and airport Placitas areas for our photo session.


A helicopter pilot really has to be very skilled in order to perform various maneuvers at such low altitudes while constantly keeping in touch with us, and still being able to keep the helicopter in specific desired positions. When taking photographs many parameters must be taken into account, such as altitude, speed and position of the sun relative to the camera, and the target object. Nor-Tech Speedboats model 427 Vee Bottom photographed on Florida's shores.


If one has the desire to find a non-traditional environment for taking a picture, then Vietnam is a real goldmine. There are many things to see and if time permits, it is a great opportunity to "catch" unseen views. This is the corner of the city Nha Trang that decorates this particular photograph.


To find an ideal location or background for images in reality can be a difficult task, which requires a certain combination of fantasy and creativity. At times, this task is even more challenging than the photographing itself. Photo session with the new Porsche Caymann S  that took place in Sweden in Uddevalla, where the port environment and all the other surroundings perfectly corresponded to create these magazine cover pictures.


At the annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show many new models were presented. Before the exhibition is available for visitors the most exclusive boat manufacturers hold their private events during which the latest models are showcased for specially invited guests. Hatteras is one of the most popular, exclusive boat manufacturers in America.


Sometimes it is enough to have an interesting wall in the background to create good pictures. Here is a wall with an interesting theme that harmonizes well with delicate Audi S5 Coupé lines.


The legendary 2-stroke engine Suzuki RM 250, the new model was there and those of us writing the reportage about it had the opportunity to photograph this motocross motorcycle in motion. Session location- the construction company’s NCC Ballast sand quarry.


The Key West World Championship Races is a traditional event that is considered to be one of the most prestigious and is internationally known as the "Indianapolis 500 of power racing." This is a real feast for your eyes and ears as powerful speedboats rush along the 6.5-mile long track, capable of reaching speeds up to 140 miles per hour. In addition, the races take place on the high seas where the conditions are not like on a calm lake.
