I am available for assignments in Norway and elsewhere.

 

I graduated photojournalism studies at Oslo University College in 2007. I started as a newspaper photographer focusing on assignments, but I am now solely focusing on independent long term projects. My work has appeared in a majority of the largest Scandinavian newspapers, and in international publications such as The Guardian, Stern and Paris Match. I have been awarded numerous times in the Norwegian picture of the year contest, and was awarded The Great Journalist Award in 2012, one of the highest honors of journalistic achievement in Norway. I was nominated for the Joop Swart Masterclass in 2017 and PDN 30 to watch in 2010 and 2012. My multimedia productions made in the wake of the terrorist attacks on the island Utøya in Norway in 2011 was shortlisted in two categories at The Webby Awards.
