I started out in pho­tog­ra­phy with a Ko­dak Brownie when I was very young. In the late 1960s I got a Pen­tax Spot­matic, which be­came my trav­el­ling com­pan­ion for sev­eral years, both around Norway and on a trip to the United States in 1984. Later, my job, fam­ily and other pur­suits got in the way of my pho­tog­ra­phy, un­til a friend of mine re-ig­nited my in­ter­est a few years ago and I pur­chased a Nikon com­pact cam­era. My first Nikon D-SLR was a sec­ond-hand D80, and then I bought a D7000 [1]. Hav­ing ad­mired the qual­ity of full-frame images pro­duced by FX cam­eras I pur­chased a sec­ond-hand D700 [2] a cou­ple of years ago, along with a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR [3], which has be­come my most-used lens, and a 16-35mm f/4G ED VR [4], which is a real beauty! I don’t have a web­site yet, but I have pro­duced sev­eral photo books, one a com­mer­cial book for a company I worked for, and some books of my own on dif­fer­ent themes, such as wood­scapes, snow and icescapes, mod­ern build­ings and, of course, the pho­tog­ra­pher’s par­adise that is the Lo­foten Is­lands. I have had my favourite pic­tures printed at 60x40cm by White­Wall, and I’m hop­ing to ar­range an ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tur­ing a se­lec­tion of th­ese.
