About Me

Hi everyone!

I am an experienced Danish amateur photographer with a passion for model photography. My favourite genres are boudoir, fashion, lifestyle and nude art.

I always shoot on location, as I find this most interesting. I use available light only whenever possible, as I like the autentic atmosphere when not using hard flashlight. Because of this I generally do not arrange any shootings in the winter period (October-March), when there is little natural light.

*** I have recently started experimenting with model video recording, and I intend to do more of this in 2019 as a suppliement to my model photography. ***

I prefer to shoot with professional models. Many of my models are from the Czech Republic as I know many talented models there. But models from other countries are very welcome as well!

I only do a limited number of shootings each year, most often at individual travels abroad. This means I only book few models for shoots in Denmark.

Focus in all my work is a fascination of natural, feminine beauty. Because of this TATTOOS ARE COMPLETELY BANNED IN MY IMAGES.

I do all editing myself, as the editing is today an important part of a photographers personal style. This means that I have NO INTEREST AT ALL IN ANY OFFERS FROM COMMERCIAL RETOUCHERS. To avoid spamming I do not reply at any kind of commercial contacts or friend requests from retouchers.

Though model photography is not reportage photography I never modify my model's physical proportions when I edit. I want to show my model's real, true beauty in my images.

I generally accept all friend requests from models, photographers and make-up artists, so if you want to be my MM friend just send me a friend request. You are welcome. However, I do not approve requests from profiles with pornographic or other kind of content I do not want to be connected to.

I do not frequently check for comments to my images, but I sincerely appreciate any serious comment to my work - just don't expect me to reply to every comment given. But thanks to anyone who have given my work such specific attention.

You are welcome to add my photos to your lists. Just keep it sober. I will delete my images from lists if I find the content or the subject for the list disrespectful for my models. Be aware, that images might also disappear from a list just because I sometimes renew my image gallery.

You can see more pictures and read more about my work at my homepage.
Thank you for your attention!
