Jon Lord – The Trondheim Experiment

Posted in Bands & Artists, Savage Beauty Photography with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 25, 2013 by Tallee Savage

This is a beautiful concert I’d like ALL of you who love Jon Lord to listen to. My friend Christer Lorichs spent hundreds of hours putting together pieces to compile a complete version of Jon Lord’s concert filmed at Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, Norway in 2010. Photos, interviews, footage from the rehearsals etc. Everything is unreleased before and came to life with the blessings of Jon Lord’s family and management.

“The Trondheim Experiment” is the title of this now free web presentation available exclusively through JonLord.org. including highlights from Jon Lord’s entire career performed with The Lord Chamber Orchestra, Steve Balsamo and my dear friend Nathalie Lorichs on vocals. The backing band also features members of Opeth. I’m so proud of Nathalie, she enchants with her fairy-like voice on the “Evening song”, Wait A While ” and “The Sun Will Shine Again” which is dedicated to Ronnie James Dio. Opeth’s drummer Martin Axenrot does a spectacular drum solo in the song Gigue… and “Child in Time”, so good it gives me the shivers… A must see!!! Inspirational powers of Jon Lord, onetallee-sign of the true greats of our time that sadly left us July 2012.

Please pass on the link to every Jon Lord and Deep Purple fan out there! >>>

Fashion of the early 1900s

Posted in Model 40, Savage Beauty Photography with tags , , , , on September 20, 2013 by Tallee Savage

The “S” figure of the end of the decade were now replaced with a more natural figure. A straight line adopted and eventually the frills and flounces of the previous decade were gone.
Hats of the era were quite prominent. With masses of flowers and feathers on top of it. They became smaller and flatter as they reached their peak in size early as the 1920s came along.
I love the elegance and eloquent of those contemporary times and felt quite comfortable walking around the studio like a madame. Dress, umbrella and hat from Independent kostym in Stockholm.

If you are curious about the fashion of 1900-1910, watch this video. This kind of Ragtime music had its peak at popularity between 1997 and 1918. The song is called “Maple Leaf Rag” played by Scott Joplin.

Dave Leon

A musician and actor that I had the pleasure to work with. The day after we took this photos Dave moved to Hollywood to boost his career. Here he talks a little about me in the NYFA kickoff party in Hollywood  >> But it’s mighty crowded and loud and you can barely hear what he says. But I do appreciate the nice words and would also like to correct Dave on one part. The link to my homepage is www.savagebeauty.se, not. com ;)

Dave’s own words on his future plans: “Dave Leon is another way of saying “driven by passion”. Passion to self-expression which I always found in music. I’ve been always including performances when I play live, and trying to express myself not just through my compositions. Something I really like is to watch other people’s good work that are out of my craft and make them evolve. That’s why I got into film. It’s the total expression of human behavior,the internal processes when a musician writes his texts, that exact moment, it’s very important to me and that’s what I wanted to ultimately express.

I got in touch with another passion driven artist, Stephanie Ohlsson, who is a film writer and director and with just a few words we could see each other’s thoughts. We decided to create this fantastic story we called “The Stockholm Bloodbath” and make it into a feature film. We are breaking records on how fast and inexpensive you can make an impressive, smart and beautiful film. It’s a great project which we filmed in July and now is under post production in Los Angeles, where we both network and study at the New York Film Academy. We are finishing the post production  this year and present it to Festivals in 2014. At the same time I took another leading role in “Huldra: Lady of the Forest” which has been finished filming in Stockholm and will start post production mid October”.

Here are links to both projects:
