Experienced editorial and commercial photographer based in Oslo, Norway
I am working for corporate & commercial clients, corporate publishing houses as well as leading magazines on assignments in Norway, Scandinavia and abroad.
Creative treatment of actuality
I discover the motives in authenticity and on location. With the understanding of the topic, professional preparation, experience and intuition during the shoot, this documentary approach enables me to take photographs of a broad specter of topics and people.
Always with the same professional dedication and empathy.

Since 1997 I have been working full-time as a photographer, only interrupted by a couple of years on the other side: at the picture desk of the daily newspaper "die tageszeitung" and a magazine in Berlin. Prior to working as a photographer, I took a Master´s degree in Political Science, Social Anthropology and Economics at the University of Freiburg - which may have influenced my kind of fieldwork approach to photography. In 2005 I moved from Germany to Oslo. During these years I have aquired an in-depth local knowledge of Oslo and the Norwegian society.
Speaking Norwegian, German and English.
I look forward to supporting your project with my photographs. Please don´t hesitate to get in touch.
