Friday's Finest

Friday is a good day to publish some inspirational imagery, so I'll try to publish some work that I'm quite fond of each week. These images belong to the extremely talented Mat Baker.

Have a nice weekend.

Some of you have probably eaten this chocolate in Sweden considering it is the best-selling candy over there. If you have then you would notice that in Norway it will be called Popsy, instead of Polly. Some peanuts prevented them from using the same name here.
Anywho, Dist Creative asked me to photograph a couple of stills for them and I gladly accepted. The images will be on adshells so hopefully you'll see it.

For the first time since Iben came along I spent the weekend away. I went to Trondheim for some inspiration. On friday I showed my portfolio to six different ad agencies and I got some very nice feedback, my self confidence would like to say thanks.
On saturday I went to three different lectures at my old school Fotofagskolen. I went to see Erik Almås, that was very inspirational. He is such a talented guy and it seems like he is kicking some serious ass in the states. Lots and lots of great jobs.

Then I went to see Simon Cederquist. A swedish artist living in Berlin. I must say I really admired his guts and how he believed in himself and his work. Truly anti-jantelov.

And the last lecture of the day was none other than Oliviero Toscani. He is quite the legend, becoming world famous for his controversial commercials for United Colors of Benetton. He was intense and enthusiastic. He sort of made me wish I was a photographer in the 60s, 70s or even 80s.

Sometimes one really need these kind of weekends with lots of creative input and inspiration. Thanks.

That's one small step for mankind, one giant leap for the bushman

The Fall

is not only a fantastic band, it's also a quite nice time of the year. At least Iben likes it.

Friend or Foe?

Say hello to my new nemesis. It's quite the competition. I feel like David trying to kick Goliath's ass. I wonder who will come out on top, results will be available in a couple of years time.

Heia Espen + Palookaville = True

It's official.
After working roughly 5 years on my own an era is finished. I've been signed by the agency Palookaville, and I'm super-excited. A lot of changes is being made to the agency these days which I will get into at a later date. But they have high ambitions and goals and that suits me to perfection. A brand new website will be up in November and from what I've seen so far it's going to be a perfect site for viewing pictures. I'm flattered and very proud that they wanted to sign me and this has given me plenty of inspiration and motivation.
There is almost one and a half year since we started to refurbish an entire house and then we had our daughter Iben, this has of course taken a lot of focus, time and energy. So now I am extremely ready to really focus on my work and hopefully the ladies running Palookaville will help me on my way. :-)

But no text without a picture. I present to you Tanya and Nina, the chicas running the agency.

I came across some guys playing rugby today. So I fired up the fog-machine and took some pictures.
