Guarding the World

Stockholm military

Guarding the royalty in Stockholm

The stern faces, crisp uniforms, shiny buttons, and daunting weapons – guarding the world is serious business.  They are a perfect model for a photo shoot – no cheesy grins – just a stone cold stare.  A collection of my best military photos from around the world.
