    I'm currently in Bergen, Norway. I'm daydreaming about traveling the country, doing something meaningful. I'm a freelancer photographer. I recently bought a car and I converted it to a camper

  • Description

    I'm a seeking, curious and adventures person from Norway. Since I was very young I've always had two strong desires, both to be close to nature and express myself in different mediums of art.
    I studied fine art and photography in Norway. I found especially photography and painting rewarding.
    Later I studied Filmmaking in Prague, which took me on a journey from Prague to London, then Hong Kong, and then back again. My main work of interest has been as a cinematographer (director of photography). But I have also done photography, both for clients and just for my own passion.
    I grew up in a hiking loving family; it didn't take long before I had experienced both sleeping outside under the stars, and going full day hikes, deep into wild.
    My father taught me to love the life on the road, jumping on a plane without knowing where to sleep the same night. He showed me the joy of meeting new people, cultures and places and to treasure these moments.
    For long I worked within the oil and gas industry. Both at platforms/ships in the north sea, and on gas processing plants and oil refineries on land. It was never my passion to work at these places, but I needed sorely money, and the market was tough. Even entry-level jobs.
    I have been living in London for a few months now, and I want a change. Working within the creative field can be tough, and especially as a freelancers.
    Now I would like to do something meaningful. Help someone else and become acquainted with a new place and become your friend. I want to shift my focus on something other than myself.
