The blog is dead, long live the blog

It's been months since the last update, and this update will be quite short as well. A looot of stuff has happened since June. After a couple of weeks working I spent the holiday with my girlfriend traveling by car around England & Wales, that was beautiful. I've also done lots of commercial work for clients like Try, McCann, Los & Co, Electric Brandy, NRK, Tine, Norvegia, Biola and lots of other stuff.

We have bought ourselves a house at Jar, totally refurbishing it as we speak, it will be the perfect home for us and our little baby girl that will arrive some time late November.

Busy but great life at the moment. ;-)

With the UiO project. After 4 days with loots of shooting and late nights with retouching. I've also done some pictures for a friend of mine, the cutest little baby. I think the pictures turned out pretty cute as well. :-)

Tomorrow we'll be heading to Flåm, a friend of mine is getting married. Guess I'll take some pictures there as well.

Spent all night saturday, all day sunday and the entire monday and tuesday working. Retouching sure takes time. This entire week I'm shooting for UiO, the university of Oslo. Lots of different pictures to be taken, sort of photojournalism. It's fun. I'm running around like a madman with my brand new softbox, the fabulous firefly.

Last week I did one of my most memorable shoots. If it is sexy or just down right ugly is for you to decide, when I'll show it to you in a couple of weeks time. Meanwhile I'm spending most of my weekend retouching.

Next week I'll be crazy busy shooting loads of pictures for the University of Oslo, being busy is nice.

The greatest place on earth

is this...
and I've spent about every evening this week here, swimming, barbequing, reading, sunbathing and just enjoying life.


A couple of weeks ago I spent an entire day at the Zoologisk Museum here in Oslo shooting animals. For what you may ask? Who knows, I reply.

I did a picture with Ernö for Usbl a couple of weeks ago and now the image is out. Featuring my good friend Erlend as the supermodel. :-)

In December 2009 I did a job with McCann for Statoil. We did three pictures and now the first one is out and about. I only shot the people, not the food.

I've also posted a video showing some behind the scenes action from the two-day shoot.

Hifi Klubben

Recently I did a shoot with Hi-Fi Klubben and Plastikk Media. The shoot was to promote a competition were you can get to see the Champions League final at their showroom. Go HERE to participate.

The brief was to capture the emotions and energy that arises during an intense soccer match. Here is the result.

Back from Berlin

Unfortunately no cloud of ash stopped us from returning to Norway. Had a fantastic trip, living in a gorgeous apartment in Prenzlauer Berg. Very inspirational as well, so I'll try to use that and hopefully I can create some cool pictures during the next couple of months.

Here are some snaps from the trip -

Thursday, May 06, 2010


Yeah, me and my beautiful girlfriend are flying down to Berlin tomorrow. Will be hanging out there with our friends Maria & Christian until late sunday. Shopping, galleries, bratwurst, pilsner and photograpy. See ya!

I went to NRK early this morning to shoot Mr. Eurovision 2010, Mr. Solbakken. During this a film crew was shooting the shoot so I might show up on television myself, on Migrapolis the 12th of May. Be sure to check that out. I also met with some very nice people before shooting Julie, probably one of the cutest 8 little girl I've ever seen. :-)

Now it's weekend and I'm spending it with my girlfriend and two great friends at a little cabin by Mjøsa. Yeah.

See ya.

Did a shoot with Ernö yesterday using one of my many handsome friends as a model. Today I shot with Plastikk Media for Hi Fi Klubben. And on friday I'll do a quick promo shoot for NRK before I'll be shooting a 6 month old baby in the studio.

Monday, April 19, 2010


Somehow one of my behind the scenes videos got featured on FStoppers, it's a cool site with lots of videos concerning photography.

This week I'll do some preproduction for a shoot with Ernö and try to figure out some own work as well.

Tuesday, April 06, 2010


Back to work after a very relaxing easter holiday and starting off with some PR. In the latest issue of Kampanje there is a 2 page interview/presentation of me as a photographer. That's cool. :-)

Film set

I went to a filmset today to shoot some stills for posters etc. I
basically waited for two and a half hours before getting exactly 5
minutes to shoot my pictures ;-)

Swedish Slave

Did a rather quick shoot with Ruter today. Even though the business is
a bit slow these days it is important to keep your assistant
busy.... ;-)

Out when buying wine....

Friday, March 05, 2010

I made this

yeah, it is okey, you can be impressed. You'd be insane not to.
Will be shooting some pictures for DDB today before heading to Gullblyanten tonight.

Back to work

I did this image for berghansen and it was featured as a fullpage ad in DN last saturday.

Here are some articles about Gullsnitt showing all the winning pictures.

Wheee, yay, jippi.....

Last nite it was the Gullsnitt awards, the only competition for commercial photography in Norway and it turned out great for me. I took home the Grand Prix which is the main award as well as gold and bronze in advertising photography and bronze in the category for advertising agencies. That was very unexpected and great fun. Yeah.

I won with the jobs for Radio Norge and Litteraturhuset.

I think that is the correct word for it?
Nonetheless it is fun. Spent the weekend in the snow up north with my girlfriend and kiddio. Had a great time.

Finished the pictures for Human Heat today, they are playing at Gloria Flames tonight by the way if you wanna check them out. I'm heading to the Gullsnitt party on friday, it is a competition for commercial photography and I have sent in some images. Would be sweet to get some kind of price although I won't get my hopes up. Hopefully it will be a nice evening anyhow.

I shot some images with Try for Vinmonopolet and here they are. We shot the sweetest employees they had and tried to make them look angry with a touch of humor. Hopefully they will scare you to show id without having to be asked. The original photograph to the left and the final image on the right.

One week has flown by...

....since my last post, and although not that much has happened I had a really nice shoot on wednesday, shooting Human Heat. A very promising pop-ensemble. I got the chance to head-bang and kick ass with some guitars myself and it left me wondering why I'm not a super-famous rock-star. What a shame.

Bon Weekend

Use this friday to check out some exhibitions at Gallery Storck and Cyan Studio.
Peace out.

No, she is not my sister as several people have wondered. She is my girlfriend and I love her. And so would you if you knew her.

Not exactly so........

I guess every photographer(the men at least) gets into photography thinking that life as a photographer is the same as the life of Terry Richardson.


It's been a rather quiet start both on the blog and work-wise this year. The shoot I did for Vinmonopolet turned out pretty funny, I believe it will be in all stores from mid-february. There are some really interesting stuff coming up though. Meanwhile my assistant has done some great work in the studio, building walls and re-arranging my entire office. It's superb.

The last ad for DFDS is out as well so here it is.

A couple of days doing office work this week. Not to mention my fabulous assistant who has built an entire wall around my office. It looks great and professional. I am both proud and impressed, way to go Gabriel. Tomorrow and Friday I'll have my first shoot of the year. Some pictures to be taken with Try ad agency for Vinmonopolet . I won't get paid but I can shop freely at all their venues the entire year so that is a fair deal I must say.

I've spent some hours putting together a new picture in my animal series as well. This time it's a Zebra. The image consists of pictures taken in Amsterdam, Cape Town, Egypt and Trondheim, feel free to guess what comes from where.

Yes, a new decade is in the making and I am back to work. Not that it is much to do these days but hopefully something will soon turn up. I guess I'll start this new year by posting my final work of last year. Three pictures I did with TBWA/Oslo for Helsedirektoratet. They wanted to use famous people as models and as you can see we photographed Samsaya, Christina Vukicevic and Erik & Kriss. They were all a joy to work with and even though the clock worked against us that day I'm happy with the result.
