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…

Post production of “Extravaganza”

This is a speedy version of my post production work of “Extravaganza”. The model, Helene, was styled by Vidar Graven and the shoot took place close to the railway station in Trondheim, Norway. As you can see, this is mostly done in camera, but a few adjustments, especially the RAW file work is essential in…

Project Style

Recently, I teamed up with stylist Vidar Graven (currently living in Barcelona) and 3 models for a full day event in Trondheim. Vidar spent about 6 hours of styling, and had prepared 3 different outfits, to bring out the models’ charachter and style. Despite constant change in wheather, and windy conditions, we managed to bring…

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…

Landskonkurransen 2013 – happy nr 8!

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.
