I am a wildlifephotographer born in Oslo, 1999. Since May 2019 I have had the pleasure to be a part of the Canon Nordic Ambassador program, and since September 2020 also an f-stop ambassador. In 2022 I became an elected member of NN - Norske Naturfotografer - an association for professional naturephotographers in Norway.
This year, 2022, I am a part of the jury in NM i Naturfoto - the oldest naturephotography contest in Norway.
I have always been interested in nature and wildlife, and I started out with my dads video camera in 2009. A couple of years later I bought my first DSLR, and since then my passion for photography has grown. Through my photography I hope to raise awareness of the beauty of nature. By doing so, I belive that we engage and embrace nature conservation.
While photography is my profession, I also study a master degree in law at the University of Oslo (2019-2024).
