: Copenhagen [Denmark]: Egon Gade Photography

Egon Gade works out of Copenhagen for Danish and Scandinavian design companies. International design icons such as Bang & Olufsen, Fritz Hansen, Malene Birger and Montana are amongst some of his clients.

Simplicity best describes Egon's pictures. Growing-up in a country with famous designers like Arne Jacobsen, Paul Kjærholm and Hans J. Wegner has significantly influenced his work as a photographer.

Egon's career as a commercial photographer began in 1981. At the age of 22 he opened a studio in the centre of Copenhagen and began specialising as a still life photographer, which was rather unusual in Denmark at that time. His client list grew as he started working for companies including Carlsberg, Royal Copenhagen Porcelain and Georg Jensen Silver. During the 1980s and 90s he became known in Denmark as 'The Beer Photographer'.

As well as working on many international campaigns, Egon has won numerous awards in the Clio Show, Cannes Lion and the Lurzers Archive.
