Demolition will start in a couple of days, and I was lucky being able to photograph this abandoned welding workshop before it’s gone forever. The buildings have been empty for some years, all the windows been smashed, it’s graffiti all over the place, both outside and inside. At the moment it’s a great place for taking pictures.
After demolition, the owners will build luxury apartments. Take a look here. (Article in Norwegian)

It’s that time of the year again. Colder, more rain, leaves changing color from green to yellow. Days are getting shorter, in other words the summer is over. We have been lucky the last couple of years, not to much snow here at the coastline. To be honest, I don’t like snow! Yes, I know i’ts beautiful, everything gets white and clean -like a white carpet covering the landscape. But, it brings with it a lot of work to!
The autumn is much better. The air is “sharp” clean and bright. Colours are great, and it’s a joy being a photographer. I have been pretty depressed lately, and today Tone (my wife) dragged me out of the house to get some fresh air, and I’m happy she did. Photography is the best therapy, at least for me. I also went nostalgic, using one of my old Fuji X-Pro1’s.

Recently I had a wedding assignment, and the couple also wanted all the preperation documented. They also wanted to have special customized wedding rings, so they hired a goldsmith. I had an interesting shoot documenting the whole process.
Kjærringa is the Norwegian slang for “wife”. I guess most photographers photograph their wives when testing out new looks and camera settings. Many of the images turns out to be great, and on this page I present images og “kjærringa”. Hope you like them 🙂
In Sandefjord – On my way to the train station
To get some new inspiration, I joined a workshop in Oslo, “Streets Of Oslo” with Trond Lindholm. New creative inspiration came slowly creeping while Trond talked with great enthusiasm about his work as a street photographer.
All participants were given challenges which should be solved, “Good morning Oslo” and “Faceless”. The images were displayed in plenary towards the end of the workshop, and participants had solved the challenges in many exciting ways. All in all a great and inspirational day.
Here are some of the pictures I took during the day.
