Addicted

I do a lot of different things. And a lot of what I do don't necessarily mix naturally. But I know this; I'm an addict. If I see something that inspires me, amazes me, touches me or gives me the chills - I'm addicted. I will never forget it, never stop thinking about it, and never get tired of it. It's both a gift and a curse.

I'm highly addicted to creativity, food, spinning on my head, extreme sports, graffiti, art, nature, music, film, going on adventures, the two girls in my life - Ane and Amalie, and most important - I'm addicted to taking great photographs.

When I was a kid one of my favorite things was when my mom got me a disposable camera, which I used to take random pictures of our cats. When I was 14 I bought a Kodak APS camera and used it frequently to document our travels to jams and battles with my bboy crew Absence.

My love for colors and graffiti made me study arts and craft at high school, where Caravaggio taught me about lighting and Dalí showed me how to think outside the box. In my senior year it occurred to me that I actually liked better to take pictures of what I made, rather than actually making it. So I got a job at a local photography store, and later went on to study photography.

I think anything can become a good image, and a good photographer can photograph anything. I love shooting any genre from advertising to weddings, portraits, concerts and base jumping. Im a storyteller at heart, and a perfectionist. I care about every single detail in my images, and won’t be satisfied with less than great.

I love making new friends, and I believe that teamwork makes anything possible. Lets be friends and lets go on a adventure.
