speedthrough of “youth portrait”

A short and speedy video of my process with “youth portrait” (seen in my previous post). 10 minutes made to 3:-) Music is by the great and fairly unknown (in Norway) Jack Savoretti!

youth portrait

This is the season for youth portraits in Norway, as we are heading for “confirmation season”/konfirmasjonsesongen. 3 years ago, I took her sister’s photos, and now it was Erle who is up for confirmation. I decided to try a totally new location in Trondheim, at least new to me. We headed for the golf course,…

Cold & Rain

Ever since my last shoot with Elisabeth Bolme, before she entered the fitness competitions (Sandefjord Open and Oslo GP), we had planned to do something just after stage weekend. Yesterday, we headed for a local forest next to where I live. We actually built a shed, using that as a changing room…needless to say, this…

Elisabeth

Here is a series from my shoot with Elisabeth Bolme last week. She is currently in training for a fitness competition, and in these she is 6 weeks away. We will follow up with another session just before the contest! All are composites, shot in my studio, and then worked into a more or less…

RITA

Last week I had the pleasure of shooting my first album cover. Rita is releasing her debut song “Carousel of Dreams” (Drømmens karusell) February 14th, on Valentine´s Day! This has been a dream for Rita since she was a young girl, and finally all the work, effort and desire she has put in results in…

comeback kid

Shutterblock has been more or less inactive during 2013…but this will hopefully change in 2014! This week, a client cancelled his appointment, allowing me to play for 30 minutes. The result was a couple of self-portraits. Although composited rather quickly, I found them presentable enough for my website. Of course, this is a mix of…

Youth

During the last month I have had the pleasure of doing some confirmation photography. My aim is to make these a little informal, and create photos with a more lasting effect; a portrait telling the world who they are/were at the time rather than during the specific session. Hopefully the girls/boys themselves are proud to…

Nina & Arild

I guess I have been a little busy lately, neglecting to congratulate Nina and Arild on their wedding day April 26th 2013! It was a chilly but very nice experience, working with this couple and I believe both them and I had great time. At least, they seemed to be comfortable to enjoy an hour…

detention

Together with stylist Nina Tårnes and Ingrid as model, I made a day trip to Hegra where we had found an old school, now a museum. The classroom itself was quite full of antique stuff that could not be easily moved around, and thus a difficult scene to light properly. However, ideas came along and…

shoottheface finalist

For the third time (month) in a row, I have been a finalist at shoottheface.com, and once a winner (January). It is not a huge competition, but ANY competition is fun and a way to show your work! Here is a shot of Ingrid Anette called “Overload”, finalist in February.
