Rugged Drives for All-Terrain Reliability

Creative artist Therese Asplund discovers how storage helps her turn her amazing ideas into captivating photographs



On the one hand, I pay a lot of attention to the right setting and lighting during the shoot, but I also want to experiment with concepts that people haven’t seen before.” A great example of this are her underwater photos, for which she takes her camera, flashlights and models to the bottom of the local swimming facility.


Therese Asplund

Photography has always been a passion for Therese Asplund. Ever since she got her hands on her grandmother’s old camera at the age of ten, she has loved taking portraits of people. Today, Asplund owns a studio in the small town of Avesta, in the middle of Sweden. As a young woman, however, she did not pursue a professional career in photography. “I didn’t believe that photography could be a serious occupation. It felt to me like I wanted to be a rock star,” says Asplund.
