Day two for me in Holmenkollen. Here is a selection of photos I took to day when Norway’s Petter Northug won a gold medal in the 30km cross country skiing for men. In the showcase is some photos that newspapers seldom publish, but I think is interesting.
After a week of being news picture editor at Scanpix, I was sent up to Holmenkollen in Oslo to cover the World Ski Championship with other photographers from Scanpix. It’s cool to be a part of a team where everybody have dedicated tasks. At the finish line I stood with a 400 f/2.8 and a ethernet-cable connected directly to my camera for live publishing. Cool stuff. Here are some of my photos from Holmenkollen covered in fog. The remote was set up be me and a colleague and fired by the guy standing closest to the finish line.
After 18 days on the road I have come back to Oslo to finish up the project. 15 interviews have been recorded and I have five to go. Akershus, Hedmark, Østfold, Oslo and Svalbard is left on the list before I can start with the edit. Here are some fresh photos that I have taken the last couple of days:
1: Sigrid is a 26 year old fisher. County: Troms
2: The 75-year old doctor Knut Tilrem in Brønnøysund. County: Nordland
3: Gerd who is a 90 year old skiier. County: Nord-Trønderlag
4: Svein works at a smelter in Orkanger. County: Sør-Trønderlag
5: Anders Sundvold restores old ovens. County: Oppland
I have used the last couple of days to travel north in Norway. On Thursday I visited a school in Finnmark with five students and two teachers. Great place. During the next couple of days I am going to travel south again and do one intervju each day. I have now done 10 portraits. 10 to go.
1. I visited Jostein who plays Organ in Ålesund. County: Møre og Romsdal
2. On my way over to Finnmark I saw a couple of reindeers. Many reindeers. And three moose.
3. The school in Kårshamn, Finnmark. County: Finnmark.
One year has past since there was a small riot in Hausmannsgate in Oslo when house occupants, or squatters, was thrown out by the police. Here are some photos from the archive that I took for Scanpix.
