Traveling, exploring the world and taking pictures have always been important to me. I vividly remember the first roll of film and a photo I took of my brother while we were traveling on a coastal steamer up north in Norway, where I grew up. My new-found passion: photography! Before long I bought my first (Olympus) SLR camera. InterRail trips with friends or alone whetted my appetite for more travel and wander, for Europe and especially for Italy. My first long distance trip, however, took me to far away Japan. I eventually started working in tourism in Oslo. Before I knew it a decade in the travel business had passed.
Thanks to the web and a latent artistic inclination my life took a new direction just after the turn of the millennium. I started working independently as a web/graphic designer and occasionally also part-time tutoring at various media schools. Another decade passed and distant horizons began to beckon once again.
A rekindled passion for photography combined with extensive travelling in Europe – in Italy and France in particular – have opened my eyes to a whole new world. Amidst exceptional cultural richness and natural beauty I have come to realize how powerful and transformative our common culture and history can be.
