Photos speak a silent and powerful language

I am a simple man who loves making photographs, travelling and spending time with my wife and family. I’m fortunate to be able to spend a good amount of time on personal projects, traveling and my day job. I make my bed in Oslo-area, Norway and I am a sucker for assignments where I have the opportunity to travel.


“care about what other people think, and you’ll be their prisoner for ever.”  –  Lao Tzu 

“don’t think about making art, just get it done. let everyone else think about if it is good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. while they are deciding, make even more art.” – Andy Warhol
