At 5.15 AM this morning I got a call about a explosion at a jewelry shop. When I arrived about fifteen minutes later there was still a bit of a caos there. Glass and broken pieces lied everywhere at the road and the blast had destroyed several nearby stores. Many of the apartments where also damaged by the blast. It is uncertainty’s about whether the thieves got anything from the store. The case is still under investigation by the police. Here are some photos and a video I made for Scanpix and NTB:
A small feature I made from Haakonsvern in Bergen for Bergens Tidende. Haakonsvern is the main base of the Royal Norwegian Navy and the largest naval base in the Nordic area. They have about 3000 employees and the base is almost like a small community with a postal office, hospital, store and a fire department.
It has been very cold the last few weeks here in Norway, and since I’m working for Scanpix this Christmas I was sent out to take some photos of this beautiful weather. Here are some photos I took at Frognerseteren and Fornebu on Saturday.
This weeks picture of the week is taken on Saturday at Frognerseteren in Oslo. Many skiiers enjoyed the beautiful cold weather.
Among happy shoppers in Asker, Norway, there is one person having a slightly different job than the rest of us. Every Christmas for 26 years, Eric Swan (56) dresses up to become Santa Claus. I followed him for two hours at the Mall where he works, and took these stills and made a video for Scanpix.
The snow have now covered large parts of Norway and Christmas is here. Then I thought that it would be time to show one of my previous films. This short snowboard-movie , laidback slide, was made in one day in March 2009.
In October I spent two weeks in Bergens Tidende with the rest of my class at Oslo University College. Me and the other 10 students in my class took over the whole photo-department while the staff had vacation. While I was there I worked on a large case in Bergen where around one hundred people are forced to evacuate because their apartment-building is dangerous to live in. The whole ground under the house has sunk drastically, leaving the house croucked and unstable. The residents are forced to pay double rent because they can’t get any insurance money back. They blame the city and is currently in a trial to sort out the conflict.
A couple of weeks ago I shot some photos of Ari Behn for Scanpix. We got 10 minutes with him during a publicity stunt in a design-store. I brought a white background and took some strait photos with natural light.
