A blueberry-quark bun + coffee at Bear Park Cafe… It’s the last day of Helsinki shoot week and the sun is out, so why not take a break?

Hey, just posted another behind the scenes update from Helsinki shoot week exclusive for Elska Patreon supporters – www.patreon.com/elskamagazine
Check it out for something rude, something new, something harsh, and something embarrassing.

I’ve written some behind the scenes tales on our members only Patreon blog. Head there to read: https://www.patreon.com/elskamagazine
Just arrived in Helsinki today to start shooting an upcoming issue of Elska, and very happy to have landed in a former prison that’s now been transformed into the lovely Hotel Katajanokka.
Now to get stuff in order for the first shoot tomorrow. Or maybe go downstairs to the sauna instead?!
Can’t think of much aside from London today. Even though there’s not an Elska London edition yet, I can post this image from when I used to cycle around the city sticking up torn pages from Elska on various random surfaces. Like this one, a page from issue (02) showing Colin C, stuck on a post at Bankside near Tate Modern.
Welcome to Ekstra Providence
If you don’t know yet, Elska Ekstra is our companion product to Elska Magazine. Inside you get outtakes from the making of the Magazine, behind the scenes tales, and also extra boys and extra stories. It’s produced in electronic format and is given to our Deluxe Subscribers for free, or can be purchased separately.
In the Providence zine, we’ve focused on showing extra pics of a few boys from the Magazine who we had a particularly hard time editing down. They include Samuel K-M (shown on the cover here), Gwen E, Alexander H, and Nic D. Then we also feature two more lads who didn’t make it into the final Magazine: Ricardo M and Henry M. Add to that a few more stories, and you’ve got around two hundred pages of more Elska.
There’s one Elska Ekstra e-zine produced to go with each city we feature. So if you’re a big Elska fan and want more, check them out!
