“Dedication to capturing the adventure gives him a fearless approach.” - Jakob Appel Gronkjaer
I’m Jakob and I run Danish Apple Photography, a husband and wife team focusing on wedding, fitness, commercial and fashion photography. I owe my passion for image creation to my parents, who gifted me my first 5MP point-and-shoot camera more than a decade ago. From there, practice and a vivid imagination drove my creativity.
Meeting my wife spurred an interest to perfect my portraiture and together we strive to give our couples complete coverage at every wedding we attend, from the smallest details to the biggest group shots. Despite mostly working in the UK, with a multi-national background I also shoot all across Europe, with weddings and fashion shoots as far afield as Italy, Czech Republic, Austria and Denmark. No matter where the shoot is located, I'm committed to getting the best out of the subjects, irrespective of language barriers or lighting conditions.
Danish Apple Photography also run monthly community-based photography skills training sessions to help people develop their skills. The style is as varied as is the coverage, from using only available light (for capturing the mood), to using all out, multi-flash multi-gel setups with smoke, water and flour!
I use the S1 as it is a power house piece of kit. At my wedding and portrait shoots it gives me the versatility to adapt to any situation, with the 500 portable watts that are packed into the S1 I can create stellar images with from ambient and memorable to fierce.
