A few years ago, I figured I wanted to get better at cinematography and photography. I was involved with productions for the Norwegian Broadcast Corp, and did my own films.
But films and TV-series take a lot of Â time, You are kinda disconnected from the projects before they get around to be released. I just wanted a bit of quick turnaround. Allmost like a concert:
Play â€”> Applause!
Now, get a beer and be happy!
I was simply tired of my own images, soÂ I made myself a project of shooting â€œsomethingâ€ every day to see if there was room for improvement.
In a previous life, I had done a bit of commercial imagery, pack-shots and glossy stuff for commercials, but I do care more about people, relations, dis-relations, absurd, erotic and emotional stuff.
After a while, the whole stills thing became a bit more articulated.
Now. All of a sudden I have â€œa lotâ€ of stills, and do some still-work. And I realize that â€œwhat I have doneâ€ donâ€™t do me much good being spread â€œall overâ€ in random contexts. Or in my drawers.
Structuring and organizing the material takes time. And I have not too much of that. Has kept me off it, until I realized I could do it one by oneâ€¦
At least I am out the gate! Filling up the â€œProjectsâ€œÂ section firstâ€¦ There are images in some of the others. But as of nowâ€¦ I have to start â€œsomewhereâ€â€¦
I am always looking for work and publishers and exhibition partners.
Thinking of moving a bit in the fashion/editorial direction with some of this.
But I am mostly open to just about â€œanyâ€ genre.
Now including commercials again.
Have fun, and please do not hesitate to buy images, or even better:
Just book me to make some new!

It is possible to buy most images for editorial, commercial or stock usage. Iâ€™ll even sell you large prints of themâ€¦.
