I am an adventure photographer and videographer from Bergen, constantly traveling around in Norway showcasing the nature and landscape of this beautiful country. My biggest passion is to inspire and motivate people to get out in nature and experience Norway.
I believe that to nature should be experienced, not just "visited", but really spend time in it. That's why I love incorporating nature, activities and photography/videography together. Some of my favorite thing to do in nature is: backcountry skiing, hiking, kiting, whitewater & sea kayaking and scuba/freediving.
In 2010 I started my masters degree in underwater engineering at HVL and NTNU, and I also met my finance Henrikke. When I graduated in 2015 there where no jobs available due to the oil crisis, and I was forced to find something else to earn a living. Kind of a bummer after 5 years of education. - But in retrospect it was a blessing in disguise, as it guided me towards the path I am on today.
I started as a photographer, quickly evolving my skills towards digital marketing and video production. I worked a few years as a digital marketing consultant at Synlighet AS, before started the production of "Under Overflaten". An 8 episode NRK documentary series about the Norwegian coast. Now I'm traveling around in Norway making videos for marketing proposes.
I've been lucky enough to work with some awesome brands. As a brand ambassador I've used their products while traveling, taking pictures and videos to be used in social media and marketing campaigns. Read more about the assignments on previous work.
