Four famous Oslo citizens wrote in VG about what is happening in their city. We have here in Oslo recently had the massacre of July 22 as well as many rapes and murders. What is happening to our beloved city?
I have recently had the interesting pleasure to hold a couple of lectures. I have had a workshop about multimedia for a group of photojournalists, talked to some collage students at Fyrstikkalléen skole and some at Nordland University. I have also talked to 60 journalists about the multimediaproject I am working on.
It has been very interesting to get input on my work. I look forward to do more lectures in the future.
If you like to follow me on Facebook as well, i’d be happy if you “liked” my Facebook page.
In this weeks portrait you can meet the 90 year old Tore Ytterdal who is a fantastic man living in Eidsdal in Møre og Romsdal, Norway. He has run a small store in Eidsdal since 1956. The store has been in his family for 126 years. You can see the video and read the intervju about him here.
In this video you can meet Hallvar Walhovd, a 48-year old lumberjack in Hønefoss, Norway.
A small training feature I did for VG on a group of men who regularly meet up to do water aerobic in Sandvika, Norway.
25 km from Måløy, Norway there is an old olivine mine, the Lefdal Mine. Here a group of Norwegian entrepreneurs want to build one of the worlds largest computer center.
It was difficult to take photos down there to illustrate how enormous the mine is. For those of you who have ever been in a mine knows that it is dark down there. Very, very dark. The challenge was to light the scenery as well as the people. To solve this I used the headlamps of three cars we had down there, two flashes and four lights hooked up to car batteries. A total of 9 light sources.
Shot with a 5dmkII, 16-35mm at 16mm f/5,6 and a slow shutter speed at six seconds.
I also made a panorama. Only available for iPad/iPhone.
