On July 22 I became a witness to the horrific terror scenes in Oslo and Utøya caused by Anders Behring Breivik. My thoughts and prayers go to the victims of this tragedy. Photos taken for VG.
This is a story I did for VG where we wanted to se what forren tourists think of Norway. We went to Flåm in Sogn og Fjordane where we followed asian tourists that took the train Flåmsbanen. We also meet American tourists and Germen campers in Oslo. I must admit that it was very fun. And Yes, all of my assumption and stereotypes where confirmed :)
Meet Asbjørn Langlo (56) who loves to play golf between high mountains in Norway.
This is a photo I took of Emilie Bratt Jakhelln for VG. Here she is on her way down from St. Hanshaugen i Oslo on a longboard.
A portrait of Norwegian comedian Atle Antonsen in Oslo. Tried to do something different other than just a straight portrait. While the journalist interviewed Atle I went on a trip around the block trying to find a suiteble location. When i found this dark green background that I wanted to use I bought a red flower in the flower shop nearby to match the background and Atles eyes. I think it turned out ok.
Meet Amalie Hansen Sønnesyn (15) who loves the mountains in the island Leka in Nord-Trønderlag, Norway.
I have visited the small place Selje in Sogn og Fjordanel to a summer-series in VG. While the surfers used wetsuits, I stood in the cold water to take photos. Refreshing.
This summer I have been given the opportunity to work for VG and take stills, video and produce multimedia. It has been some exiting weeks with a lot of cool assignments and trips. Last week I got to shoot some pictures of the Norwegian singer Bjørn Eidsvåg. What a great man!
