A few words about me
Considered, balanced, systematic, pleasant, precise, strenuous, accurate, perfectionist, approachable, serious.
Photography is my passion! To me photography is more then just a job, I will go to wide extends to make the perfect picture, a picture that communicates just what my client want. Food and wine is some of my favourite topics. I love the passion you see in the eyes of a winemaker, when he is testing the grapes, while telling about the terroir. To see the concentration the top chefs have, when preparing the dishes for their guests, makes me even more focused, so the picture of this perfect prepared dish, will take the gastronomy to the highest possible level.
When working with children, for family cooking, I play along and have fun with them. This way I can make the pictures more authentic, showing the everyday life in the family.
Landscapes fascinates me, I love to show the beauty of nature. When travelling I am always fascinated by the different light, the colours and the vegetation. This is a great inspiration to me.
Interior and architecture can be both fascinating and inspiring. Making pictures at hotels, restaurants and resorts is always interesting and exiting. Many possibilities and many challenges is what I like. Waiting for the perfect light on the building, while timing the sun to be at the right position, when shooting the interior.

Stig Pedersen (Marketing Director Weber-Stephen)
Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Creative
“Talking Søren, what can I say… We have used his skills several times at Weber – and we truly felt blessed with Sørens professional attitude, creative mind and his way of working with us as a client to move our viewpoint of how Weber should be experienced as a superbrand. As our latest project we did an amazing 400 pages cookbook with The Danish National BBQ Team, that included 128 stunning images taken by Søren, and we truly feel his contribution to this project made the world of a difference to us. So we would always recommend Søren Gammelmark to everybody, as long as he still finds the time to do our work :o)” July 3, 2012
