Portraits

I think it’s incredibly exciting to take portraits. Whether you’re young or old, it’s about to capture one’s personality and bring out the best in a person.
I have taken many portraits over the years, both formal and informal.
If you would like to get your hair and makeup done by a professional before the photo shoot, I work with a highly professional and skilled hairdresser, stylist and makup artist. His name is Frederick Cleverly and is located in Play del Ingles.

Portrait photography can be so many things, whether we are in the studio or at location. I have lights to bring out and other equipment for lighting. Gran Canaria has many exciting places we can use in this setting, both beautiful, urban and cool.

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 of work I have had lately, I haven´t had time to do it. But, since Simen is leaving 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 kind to lend us their incredible cool door to their workshop, and of course, Svennie had a lot to talk...

Friends photography – Amadores Beach

Friends photography – Amadores Beach

Today I´ll show you some photos from a friend photo shoot that we did on Amadores Beach. Nuria and Cecilie is working at Colegio Noruego, and Cecilie is now going back to Norway. Cecilie and Nuria wanted to have some photos of them together to keep the good memories from the time on Gran Canaria. They had an idea of taking photos in the sunset on a beach, so we decided to go to Amadores beach. We were lucky, the sunset this day was beautiful, and we got many photos with different light. The light are changing very fast when the sun is going...

Malene

This is Malene, a young girl who is a student at the Norwegian School at Gran Canaria. She and two friends of her, were with us to take some test shoots. I had just bought my 85 mm, 1,2 lens from Canon and needed to do some testing, and the girls wanted some photos. Not bad at all if you ask me, Malene looks great! Enjoy!...

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. ...

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....

Fashion shoot for Lindas Taboo

Fashion shoot for Lindas Taboo

Although every people I do a photo session with are very valuable to me, I have to admit some jobs are more fun and means more to me than others. The shot we did for the Canarian/Swedish designer Linda Segura Sterner was one of those jobs that I appreciate very much. Linda is a great designer, very creative and know exactly how she want the result to be in the end. Therefore, it was a demanding and challenging job that demanded much of both Geir and me. The shoots took place over three days, two days in the desert of Maspalomas and one day in...

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 in the wedding I will take a lot of pictures. Altough, I am not a wedding photographer, actually I...

Thank you, mormor

My dear grandmother, “mormor”, died the day after my birthday, almost 90 years old. Today is the funeral in Risør, Norway. My dear grandmother has always been there, we have always been living close to each other, except for the last four years that I have been living in Spain and she in Norway. Thank you mormor for all you have been for all of...
