Starting Out

I remember when I first started out studying photography. It was an exiting time, and very nerve-wracking, because I had no idea if I was gonna be good enough. My passion for photographing people and creating stories got me connected with the modeling agencies in Oslo, Norway. Luckily they put their faith in me, and allowed me to work with their models. One of them is the beautiful Lise-Anitra Johnsen, and we did a bunch of shoots together that helped shape my style. Thank you for that. Here’s a previously unreleased photo of her, taken 6 years ago.

Here’s part II of my shoot with Caroline & Rodrigo. Yesterday I showed you Rodrigo’s photos and here’s the rest with Caroline + a few more of Rodrigo. And tomorrow I’ll show you the last set of photos from that shoot – water.

Things are changing

So very few updates from me lately, but it’s because I’m working on a complete relaunch of both the blog and my professional website. New business cards are in print and hopefully everything will be ready and launched before christmas!
In the meantime I’m going over all the old and new photos, trying to put together a portfolio, finishing the different series & personal work. Here’s some new, old and blog photos that I may or may not put in.

I love – shoots

So, first blogpost – damn pressure! Fuck it. Here’s some lovely pictures from a shoot I did this monday for an article about Are Grongstad – a norwegian handball player. I based the look on early Marlboro ads.
