Hi, welcome to my FAA Page.
Professional Photographer accepting new assignments!
After working as an Executive/Personal Assistant for 15 years, mainly in the oil and gas business in Norway, I needed a change in my life.
Since photography had been a passion since I was a child, I wanted to do something creative and meaningful in this field. This inspired me to visit Greece for 3 wonderful years.
After returning to Norway, I decided it was time to become a professional photographer/artist. In 2010, I graduated at “Bilder Nordic School of Photography” in Oslo. At the same time, I was working with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) International Arctic Program. Going to photo school and working with Arctic conservationists inspired me to deepen my knowledge about our planet, and to educate the world through my photography. Thanks to my many travels, I've been able to share my love of animals and places, many of which most people will never see or experience.
The last 4-6 years have been focused on nature & wildlife photography. Now I find myself going back to photographing people, something I did lots of in my early career as a photographer.
I love 'on location' photography at the client's home, farm, cabin or any other favorite spot. I focus on babies, pregnant couples, boudoir photography, portrait & family photography, weddings, engagements and pets.
I love teaching photography, in addition, I also enjoy something I call PhotoArt, which includes manipulation of my own images. I occasionally do this commercially for clients upon request.
