A friend of my daughter-in-law asked if I would document a party celebrating her 50th anniversary. I’m still growing as a photographer and slowly developing my own style. In stead of traditional shots, I’m adopting some of my street photography experiences when documenting events like a party or anniversary.
I find great inspiration in Kevin Mullins. He’s a documentary photographer mostly working with weddings. Inspiration from street photography and photojournalism has obviously a great impact on his style too.
Amy just turned 50 and invited her friends and family to celebrate. A party in the local sports club. Quite informal. She wanted a posed shot of all guests. Not exactly my thing, but of course… When everyone started mingling with a glass of bubbles in their hand, I had a great time. I want my “clients” to remember the actual moments instead of what the photographer wanted them to do. This was the perfect moment.

This weekend I had a walk in the city together with my daughter. I one of the shopping centers we met several brides walking among customers. A nice view I’d dare to say :-). Anyway, it turned out to be a NICE marketing event.
…Memoirs of a child “Childhood is not from birth to a certain age. And, at a certain age a child is grown and puts away childish things. Childhood is the kingdom where nobody expires. It is a vision of Spring, when everything is in a perpetual state of growth.” – Isabella Swan Featured Image: […]
My daughter in law – Cathrine – turned 40 last month. I was engaged to document the celebration. It all started just over midnight when friends and family marked her day by waking her up just a minute into her birthday. And of course with cake, gifts, flags, flowers and …bubbles 🙂
She had the birthday party in a fine venue – the theater in Drammen, Norway. All the guests posed for the photographer when entering the venue. It was December in Norway and near the darkest day in the year. So some additional lighting was needed. The torches gave me a bit of of a puzzle. Anyway, monochrome is very close to my taste, so colors was not a problem. Notice the posters next to the doors.
Most of the images are shot handheld with my Sony RX100M5 camera. The posed image in the entrance was captured with my Nikon D610 on a tripod.
In July Susie & The Spuds performed in the Ravnedalen Live. Their music can be characterized as Folk ‘n Roll / Old Time / Americana. The band started in 2012 and comes from Lillesand, Norway. Here are some of the photographs I made that evening. Kim Larsen & Kjukken and Rune Andersen performed in the same festival. Click on the links to see my images from their performances.
As usual handheld with my Nikon D610 and the Tamron 50-70 mm.
