I still haven’t found my personal style – I´m still looking
In many years I have worked with graphic design and webdesign, so photography is relatively new to me. In a way it is not so far away from my daily work, but I still think, that it can be difficult to find the style I like – and I haven’t yet found it.
I am a trained Art Director, and have worked with webdesign for many years now. A profession where I also have used a lot of pictures everyday. I do not use my own photos in my professional work, as photography is only a hobby for now. In my early years I draw and painted a lot, and did several exhibitions of my art. I have spent much time in art schools and drawing courses when I was younger. Worked with many different media within the creative environment, and now I try the enjoyment of taking pictures. It has totally caught me and I love to take pictures now!
I know what fascinate and motivate me. I try to catch that and express myself the best way I can, and see how far my skills reach and my equipment allows. Old paintings, the dark, faces, fashion, creative editing and a whole lot more, are among things that fascinate me. I also get my inspiration from my dreams, music and people. Other artists inspire me too. By looking at the best photographers, they inspire me how to set light at a portrait or in other details. I just have to try to match them the best I can…
I spend a lot of time working in Photoshop, both in my daily work, but aslo when I am editing my pictures.
I just love that process…
As an amateur photographer, I sometimes get frustrated over all the things I still doesn’t not know about Photography. Hereby I mean lightning, staging and other techniques as a professional photographer would know, and have spent many years to learn. I have the greatest respected for trained photographers and their education, and I wish I was in a siutation where I could take such an education. For now I try to find my answers for my questions on the internet. I ask the professionals or others so I can learn, and be even better to take pictures. Maybe one day, I will create a picture that could take the breath out of my audience. [Official Website]
