The Secret life of daydreams

I remembered that the real world was wide, and that a varied field of hopes and fears, of sensations and excitments , awaited those who had the courage to go forth into it's expanse, to seek real knowledge of life amidst it's perils

Feeding the soul

This photo was taken in Tromso at a Fjord near the airport. It is actually more complicated than it looks. It's a composite of three different exposures (the sea, the aurora and myself with the fire) taken at the same place. I also used a rotolight to enhance the warm light on me and the rocks.

New to portraits

Here are a couple of portraits from my latest shoot.

I've been doing photography for about a year and started doing people photography, seriously, about 6 months ago.

I'm asking for honest feedback on my images.


I wanted to create something dramatic

So the photo didn't have a lot of color from the start so I realized it would be very boring to make this photo all very vibrant. So I tried to mute the colors on the ground and keep the greens and myself vibrant.

Some feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Portrait of the wine taster

Photographing this portrait was one of the happiest gigs I have made this year. You wanna know why?

Just by containing those exact styles I usually use with my own projects. Simply as that. Not special equipment or newest models of this and that. Just principles my client gave me and the rest of lied literally on my hands.

Ok, I...

City shooting and decided to use this architectural pillar under a footbridge in our CBD. I decided to use my strobe in the image and not light from the front as it blew out the lights from the structure.
