I was born to a Norwegian mother and English father and spent my younger years growing up in a small commuting suburb just north of Oslo, Norway.
At the age of 10 I received my first camera from my father, who in turn had received his first camera at about the same age, so you can definitely say that photography is in the family genes. My grandfather took extensive B&W shots during the 2nd World War, which he developed himself in the field and colored by hand. From 10 years and onward I and the camera were inseparable.
I have an educational background in media, drawing and fine art and try to create modern artwork through my photography. My art is a fusion of my travels and experiences, especially that of the cold, bleak Norwegian winters and the vibrant colorful modern Britain, I try to create a “feeling” through my images, with my passion for detail and the obscure.
In later years I have traveled extensively in Europe and also lived and worked in Ireland, Germany, Norway and the UK, and now I considers myself to be a “eurocrat”, something which definitely introduces a mixed cultural flair to my work.
