Me

 

Norwegian photographer located in Hamar, where I live with my amazing wife, son and dog. I grew up among fjords and mountains in the north-western part of Norway, but never really recognised the amazingly beautiful surroundings before I’d moved away and came back to visit. Now I cherish every moment I get to spend outside, preferably in the mountains, with my camera, skis, bicycle or just my thoughts.

The last few years I’ve not been able to spend as much time outside as I would have wanted due to an injury in my back. At the moment I do not know if I will ever be able to live the life that I love to full extent, and I’m slowly trying to figure out what I want this new life to be filled with.

One of the things I spend a lot of my time and energy on is photography. I got my first DSLR in 2010, and I now have a very passionate relationship with my camera. Since my injury photography is one of my hobbies that I have not had to drop or adjust, so it has become even more important to me the last few years.

I shoot with a Canon EOS 7D, and my favourite lense is a Canon 50mm f1.4. I also have a Sigma 17-70mm, a Canon 24-105 mm f4, a Canon 40mm f2.8 and a Canon 70-200mm f4. Even though equipment can’t get you great shots alone, I do think it’s important that it’s not holding you back.

“I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees” – Henry David Thoreau

“Skis are not just pieces of wood, steel and fiberglass. They are tools of escape. A medium for personal expression. A way to challenge fears and push limits. When I go skiing, I feel happy and strong. Liberated from the nonsense of day-to-day life. Solid. Together we conquer the world.”

      1. Hahaha, yep – I’m reading through your work, don’t you worry. Will stay for a while. How old is your son (if you don’t mind me asking publicly – I’m only 1 year older than you and have a little daughter, so feel a sense of funny/weird? connection there) 😉

      2. Totally. Although my girl is almost 5 and I am astonished how quickly I have forgotten what it feels like to have a baby… Congratulations to you and your wife and look forward to exploring your blog more
