Boxing photo shoot with Simen

Boxing photo shoot with Simen

The other day I had a really cool photo shoot with Simen from Oslo, Norway. Simen and I have known each other for couple of years, we got to know each other when I was working for the Norwegian School, and Simen was working for “Rikshospitalets Behandlingsreiser” at Gran Canaria. I knew he was doing boxing, and I had this idea of doing a photo shoot with him. We have been talking about this for a long time, but due to a large amount...

Portraits photo shoot Gran Canaria

Portraits photo shoot Gran Canaria

A few weeks ago I had an incredibly fun and amazing photo shoot with Svennie. Svennie is the principal of one of the best private schools in Norway, OPG, located in Oslo. And imagine having such a incredibly cool principal! Can´t imagine many other principals would do the same, pose for these photos in front of a graffiti wall! And yes, he also made some new friends during the photo shoot. The guys at “Aluminio Asturias” were so...

The last months, from May until this month, I have been meeting Marianne one time every month. She and her husband Jonathan is expecting a little baby very soon, and we have put the growing belly on digital files.

Christoffer in the sun in Puerto Rico

Christoffer in the sun in Puerto Rico

We have a very nice park just near our apartment here in Puerto Rico. I use this park a lot for photo shoots. Wednesday we went there with Christoffer, my son, to take some new shots of him. This time we did not use any flashes or any other fancy stuff, just the sunlight, a diffusor and a reflector. Many of the photos are taken straight into the sunlight, which gives the photo a nice glow and warmth, but also a lot of haze, which I like. ...

Pet photos of the dog Milla

Pet photos of the dog Milla

I didn´t had any experience with pet photos when Millas “mother” called me to ask me to take her dog Millas photos for her 1 year birthday. But some time has to be the first. I had to admit this was not the easiest job I ever done, but one of the cutest costumer I had. It was not easy to get Milla to stay where we wanted. But mother Seija knew the tricks and had some goodies to give her, so we manage to take many photos of her. And...

This is Oskar

This is Oskar

Oskar is a young boy that is going to be “konfirmert” like we say in Norway. I have taken the photos for his invitation cards for this event. And since Oskar is a longboard skater, I thought it would be nice to use a urban/grunge background. And what is more perfect than at wall of graffiti. I just love graffiti, and there are so many gorgeous looking graffiti art work on this island. I think the environment is perfect for Oskar....

We have become good friends and have done some special work together. Like we did last thursday. We invited all the students at the Norwegian School and offered them...

Elise in studio

Yesterday we did a shoot with Elise, who is a girl that I know very well. We took over 400 photos. Thats because she is a very talented young girl, she is very good at posing. And we had so much fun doing the shoot. She brought some of her dresses and other stuff and did her own makeup, so we just went on for hours. And I have to say I love the result. And this reminds me why I am doing photography, because it so fun and I love to work with...

Camilla

This is my lovely daughter Camilla. She is soon to be married, to be more precise, the 25. June. These days she is of course very busy organizing it all. It will be held in Norway and I will arrive just in time, on the 22. As the mother of the bride I wish I was a little bit nearer right now, so I could give her some help with it all, but so it is, six hours with plane (if it´s direct) and then 2-4 hours with car, and a job to take care of. But...
