Prop stylist, journalist, beauty editor and art director
Fearless and creative, Lisen Sundberg is an expert at finding and expressing the essence of an object – its color, shape and purpose.
Lisen’s first dream was to become a photographer. After studying art, pattern-making and design, she entered the world of magazines and styling. She has experience with most aspects of the fashion magazine and advertising world: she has written about fashion and beauty, styled both people and props, and occasionally worked as an art director.
These days, she primarily works with objects rather than models, which offers the space and opportunity to dig into those small details – although Lisen has cheerfully worked with mice, ants and reptiles, too, when that’s what it takes to make the picture perfect. Born and raised in Stockholm, Lisen’s number one hobby is travel, followed closely by food, friends and cute kittens on YouTube.
Food stylist and food consultant
To Jacob Wismar, being a food stylist is not only about creating great food and beautiful pictures. His interest is as much in the message: from the client to their client, told through dishes or pictures. Jacob originally trained as a chef, but he has had many professions. His broad carrier includes work as a head waiter, club owner, nutritionist, health guru, web designer, catering company owner, industrial developer and concept consultant. With an excellent sense of trends, he always seems to be “where it happens.” “Well,” he says, “I like to have fun and I try not to say no, and also not to worry.”
Jacob lives on a horse farm with his wife and four children – which might be why he says things like, “Why do we give our kids food we’d never dream of giving a horse?” Yeah, why do we? Jacob’s passion for healthy cooking was the basis of his cookbook, “Jacob’s Healthy Kitchen, The Family Method” – which focuses on meals for children and families with less meat and semi-finished ingredients. It also sums up the focus of his professional work: beauty from the inside out.
