Jack Savoretti

I had the pleasure of visiting the Jack Savoretti concert in London March 4th, O2 Shepherd`s Bush arena. This had been somewhat a dream for quite some time, and I wanted to make something special of the event.
A few days before, I contacted the management, asking for the opportunity to do a portrait session. Unfortunately, there was no time during this tour, but I was granted photo pass (along with my wife – assistant for one day). Being in the photographers pit for the first three songs was amazing, and the show lived up to its expectations. Just amazing…

Now, the unexpected thing was being invited to the after party “upstairs” in the arena, along with the band(s), family and friends. Jack himself took his time to speak to us, and of course doing the mandatory “selfie” with us.
Thank you for your hospitality, warmth and again…tremendeous show! I look forward to visiting the next possible event, wherever!! But hopefully in Italy.

And, you will be very welcome in Norway!

FEP Award 2015

A little unexpected, but truly amazing, I received a message I was a finalist in the FEP 2015 competition, portrait category!! A little later, I discovered one of my entries made it to an “Excellence Award”. This means a score of 90-100, and equals “gold”.
I entered with 3 photos, and “human wrecking ball” made it to the top!
This is an annual European competition «Photographer of the Year Awards» by FEP (Federation of European Photographer). The awards represents over 50000 professional photograpers in Europe. This year, the ceremony took place late Sunday (March 1sst) in Teatro Verdi i Trieste, Italia. I could not be there, but representatives from Norway received the award in my place.
More on this in Adressa.

Attached to this post, are the awards and the winning photograph.
