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…

miss pink

My daughter aged 4 did not mind being painted pink…I guess it was close to a dream! However, when all the paint was on, and myself ready to shoot, her patience was somewhat over …but these are some examples of what came to life. (ps! she might loved being painted, but getting it off was…

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.

witness

Having seen the first episode of the HBO production “The Witness” (featuring Eros Hoagland) I am not only inspired but in awe of what is possible to do with your camera. I know I will never have the same opportunity or guts to follow his footsteps, although I can almost sense that maybe this was…

PHOKUS portfolio

A collection of various photographs during the last years. Hope you find something to remember, even if the shots are shown for a short time…

soul of photography

Having seen the movie “ONCE” (again – I have seen it a couple of times before), I am again inspired to do more of the “simple” photography that is probably more true to heart than trying to be more advanced…this might be hard to explain, but to give an analogy: I am a huge fan…

PHOTOGRAPHY MASTERS CUP 2013

Okay, so I did not have the same success as last year, claiming a 3. place in Fashion. But still, one has to be happy with 4 nominations in two different categories. This is a huge international competition with close to 9000 photos competing, and many big names in photography participate each year. Thanks to…
