Profile

Hi, my name is

Photographer, Musician, Whatever, Etc

Born and raised in Norway, camera in one hand, guitar in the other. Destined to be nothing, but becoming? Nah, let’s not dwell on that when it is the clothes that make the man and you’re here to see photos. A picture is worth a thousand words meaning all you need to know about me is featured in my portfolio and whatever’s left to know about life has already been documented in a John Hughes movie so you should be all set for a good time. Remember kids, leisure rules.

More junk in the trunk than a Honda

I’m a total gear whore. Be it vintage guitars, handmade amplifiers, rare effects, fine watches or quality mechanical cameras. Oh, yes. The materialist inside of me has a deep affection for the finer things in life and analog shooters are no exception. I’ve been through many of the higher end 35mm and medium format models in recent years and they’re all special, but the ones featured below are my main companions and get used for 99% of all the work I do.

Leica MP

Attached lens: 35mm Summicron f2.0 v4

This is my main workhorse for 35mm. I try to carry it with me as often as possible, usually loaded with Kodak Portra 160. All of the images in the Colorful Memory series was shot with this combo. The all black stealth look paired with flawless function and impeccable design makes the Leica MP my all time favorite camera. The 35 ‘cron is permanently attached, it’s the perfect allround lens.

Leica M6 TTL 0.85

Attached lens: Leica 50mm Summicron f2.0

This functions as a backup for the MP, but in addition to that I also love using this particular combo with TriX when shooting more human subjects than I usually do. The .85 viewfinder with the 50 is a killer combination and works great for portraits too. I usually prefer the M6 Classic over the TTL version, but this one just spoke to me and we’ve been close ever since.

Hasselblad SWC/M

Fixed lens: CF Biogon 4.5/38

Now, here’s a beauty. The majority of my newer landscape work uses this gem of a camera loaded with Fuji Acros 100. It truly is a remarkable piece of engineering. Use it on a tripod for incredible wide angle landscape shots or keep it at the hip with some zone focus action for an interesting new perspective on classic street style. I usually just hyperfocal at f16 or f22 and let it rip.

Hasselblad 503CW

Attached lens: 50mm Distagon CFI f4

This is the O.G. My baby. Usually loaded up with Fuji Acros 100 and the 80mm CFE f2.8 attached. You can do everything with this combo; landscape, portraits, whatever. I keep the 50 and 120 handy whenever I bring the 503, but 90% of the time I opt for the 80. Such an amazing and versatile combo. I have all the extra gizmos for it, but only use the 45 prism finder which is great.
