Official Photographs

I was looking at photos from Christmas of the Norwegian royal family and it got me to thinking about the snapshot-like "semi-official" photographs coming from the Norwegians and the Danish in particular. They're not always terrible, but the British and the Swedish families, for instance, seem to have a better handle on consistently good pictures.

At holidays and weddings it appears that Norwegian/Danish family members are arranged haphazardly in the corner of a room without much regard to composition, shadow or anything else. The shots are charming in their candid quality, but it almost looks like they're going to the prom or something and mom took the picture with her Nikon. Very amateur feel. Am I the only one who thinks hiring a first-rate photog like Mario Testino would do wonders for official(ish) photographs? Or maybe I'm being overly critical (which I will preemptively blame on my Los Angeles provenance).

last batch (casa real and koninklijkhuis)

didn't upload all the ones in koninklijkhuis because they are far too many and that may take a lot of bandwidth.

When Madeleine turned 18 on June 10 2000 she had some official birthday photos taken at Drottningholm Palace

Here´s some of them. They were all posted in magazines but Ì dont know who took them : Probably either Charles Hammarsten or Clas Göran Carlsson. (anyone knows for sure?)

Some of these photos are from Fotomarktplatz
