Portraits

simen-5

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.

Here are some portraits that I have taken:

Oskar

Oskar had his big day in april, and he is now “konfirmert” like we say in Norway. Family and friends were gathered for his party to celebrate The Great Oskar  I also took some photos of him in December, and now we took his photos for his cards. I have also taken some of his family in the studio that I will put here later. Well, here is Oskar from the session outside in Puerto Rico. Congratulation with your “konfirmasjon” (what is this in English???)...

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 I just love the result myself, Milla is so cute, and I hope this is not the last pet I get the...

More of the young ones

Posting some of the photos I took just before christmas of this lovely young girl. We went to the beach, unfortunately it wasn´t that orange sunset I was hoping for, but I am very happy with the result though. Some photos were also taken in our studio in Puerto Rico. Enjoy!...

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....

To be special requires someone special

Well, maybe the headline is a little bit cliche-like, but in some occations, that is the truth. I know a very special person, and that is Frederick. I first met him as my hairdresser, someone at my work recomended Frederick and I decided to give him a try. I have never regret that. 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 a workshop in makup, hair, style and photography. Frederick chose one of the students and gave her...

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 people that love to stay in front of a camera. Thank you, Elise...

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...

Good friends

On saturday I had Hilde and Tove Karin in studio. Tove Karin had arranged a surprise party for Hilde and included in it was a trip to the hairdresser and stylist Frederick. He painted them and made the girls ready for party. Then they came to me and we had a photosession. Then it was party with several friends out at town. I think the result is gorgeous, but they really are some great girls. We took many photos, and here is some of them. [Show as...
